MLS stadium

At 244 acres, The Railyards is the largest infill downtown development in the west. Plans for the project will model a modern urban lifestyle, including proximity to transit, work, recreation and entertainment. The development will be anchored by a $300 million, 20,000-seat Major League Soccer stadium. The dynamic, mixed-use environment will also include up to 5 million square feet of office, approximately 700,000 square feet of retail, a state-of-the-art mass transit hub, housing and cultural amenities. When complete, the development will add 7 million square feet and 10,000 residents to downtown Sacramento, effectively doubling the urban core.

This site represents a unique opportunity for major employers to establish an iconic presence in downtown Sacramento. Future tenants will benefit from exposure to over 1.1 million annual visitors to Sacramento’s Amtrak station (which is projected to increase to over 15 million by 2030) and Interstate 5, which generates 194,000 daily vehicle trips.
