Our residents love being a part of
everything Sacramento has to offer

Broadway was once Sacramento’s hub, teaming
with life, community, and culture.

As time passed and the city grew, it became splintered off from the rest of the city largely due to the implementation of the W-X Freeway. Today the Broadway Corridor is undergoing an insurgence of new life on the heels of our city’s downtown renaissance. In the next few years we will see new life and vibrance coming back to our city’s original boulevard.

Below are some of the exciting developments advancing the greater Broadway region.

City Councilman Steve Hansen says he sees Broadway as the next major downtown corridor to modernize, after K Street and R Street. “The opportunities really abound here,” he said. “You are starting, not with a blank canvas, but with an area that has been fragmented and overlooked for a long time.”

THE MILL AT BROADWAY

The Mill is bringing an array of assets to Broadway that can’t be found anywhere else in the city, such as 1,000 new urban homes, a beautiful four acre park, new bike paths connecting to the American River Bike Trail, an on-site public market, and street art and muraling.

DIMPLE RECORDS

Dimple has been a fixture of Sacramento’s music scene since it was started in the 1980’s by John Radakovitz, who previously sold records out of the back of a van for Canterbury Records. Located in the nostalgic Broadway location made famous by the original Tower Records, Dimple has survived the digital music revolution by building a community around local music trading and building a culture that has pioneered today’s vinyl resurrection.

STREET CARS

If city officials gain approval for a downtown streetcar line, that line has been proposed to reach Broadway and traverse the Tower Bridge to the Raley Field in West Sacramento. This would provide fun, convenient transportation from Broadway to the greater downtown region.

PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENTS

Later this year, the city is expected to unveil plans to narrow the busy thoroughfare from two lanes in each direction to one with center turn lanes in order to slow traffic and encourage a main-street feel where people can ride bikes and restaurants can use the sidewalks to create patio seating. The early reaction among business, property owners and nearby residents has been largely positive.

BROADWAY BRIDGE

The Broadway Bridge is a government-led improvement that will connect Broadway to West Sacramento over the Sacramento River. This will allow convenient walkable access to the various amenities available in West Sacramento.

SELLAND'S MARKET CAFE

Selland’s Market Cafe – a Sacramento favorite – is opening a new location along Broadway in late 2017. This provides an additional place to eat and enjoy along Broadway, just a short walk or ride from The Mill at Broadway. Whether dining in or bringing food back home, Selland’s is sure to impress.

MILLER PARK AND THE MARINA

Located at the far west end of Broadway, Miller Park is full of relaxation and the beauty of the Sacramento River. With 57 developed acres, amenities include picnic areas, river access, boat trailer parking, a boat ramp, and dock. Miller Park is also home to an annual beer festival.

THE TOWER THEATRE

The Tower Theatre is one of Sacramento’s most iconic landmarks that opened its doors in 1938. More than 75 years later, it is still the premier place to catch some of the best independent and foreign films within 100 miles.

SACRAMENTO ANTIQUE FAIRE

The Sacramento Antique Faire is an outdoor Antiques & Collectibles Marketplace held the second Sunday of every month in the Broadway Corridor under the freeway at X and 21st. More than 300 vendors sell antique and vintage goods including furniture, clothing, jewelry, military, garden, architectural, lighting and more.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING RENOVATION

A few blocks east, redevelopment officials and private developers (not affiliated with The Mill at Broadway) will reimagine the affordable housing communities along Broadway known as Marina Vista and Alder Grove by replacing them with a revitalized mixed-income community.

GOLDEN 1 CENTER

Only a four minute drive from The Mill, the newly named Golden 1 Center will be home to the Sacramento Kings NBA team and will host numerous other exciting forms of entertainment such as shows, concerts, events and more.

DIVERSE SMALL BUSINESSES

Fun and exciting new businesses are emerging along Broadway, such as the New Helvetia Brewing Co., housed in a brick building at 18th St. and Broadway, along with The Antique Company, Fringe, Sacramento Beekeeping Supplies, It’s All Yoga, Tango on Broadway, Move Studio, Broadway Comics & Cards, and more.

WEEKLY FARMERS MARKET

Sacramento’s largest weekly farmers market is held right off of X Street in the Broadway Corridor. A unique selection of items are available, including the finest fruits, vegetables, baked goods, flowers, herbs, juices and cheeses. Watch this summer as the look and feel of the space gets completely reimagined with the dramatic Bright Underbelly mural covering nearly 70,000 square feet of the underside of the elevated freeway. This grand scale project is being carried out by LC Studio Tutto, the same local company that is muraling the entrance to The Mill at Broadway.

GREAT FOOD

Broadway is home to an eclectic and multicultural culinary scene with some of the most-loved restaurants in Downtown Sacramento, some with a long and unique local history. These include Tower Café, Willie’s Burgers, Iron Steakhouse, Jamie’s Broadway Grille, and other Ethiopian, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Vegetarian, and Mexican restaurants. Just off Broadway down Riverside Avenue, you will find old favorites like the Riverside Clubhouse and Vic’s Ice Cream, as well as new up-and-coming places like Massulo Pizza.

THE TRIANGLE DISTRICT

The Broadway Triangle spans several blocks along Broadway between 34th and 36th streets. It’s a transformational mixed-use development featuring thousands of square feet of retail space, anticipated to include a large market, urban nursery, and more.

SACRAMENTO REPUBLIC

The Sacramento Republic FC soccer team recently opened an office, team store and event space two doors down 17th Street, just off Broadway. Team officials first looked for space in Midtown, but chose the brick building off Broadway because of the character of the area.

CENTRAL CITY HOUSING INITIATIVES

Initiatives by Mayor Kevin Johnson will increase housing across the central city, bringing 6,000 market-rate units, 2,500 affordable-rate units and 1,500 subsidized units. These 10,000 new homes will breathe new life into downtown and the Broadway corridor.
