Kaiser deal delivers jump-start for railyard development
Sacramento Business Journal

Kaiser Permanente’s plan to build a medical center in Sacramento’s downtown railyard is more than just a big project. It’s a critical step forward for the whole infill site, according to people closely involved.

Denton Kelley of Downtown Railyard Venture LLC said the center on 18 acres in the railyard helps draw in other development for its surroundings.

“I don’t think we could be any more excited,” Kelley said. The hospital, combined with a proposed soccer stadium with up to 22,000 seats, are high-profile catalysts, he said. “These are the two right now with the most potential to happen.”
