New Apartments Planned For Old Tower Records Site
The old Tower Records location on Broadway in Sacramento may soon be the site of a new five-story apartment building with some ground floor commercial space. The old building, which was also a Dimple Records for a while, was torn down last year. It used to have one of the city's most recognizable murals featuring the likenesses of music greats: Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder and others. Sonya Sorich from the Sacramento Business Journal says the mural may live on with the new apartment building.
"Renderings for the proposed project show a re-created mural similar to the one that was previously on Broadway,” says Sorich. “That new mural would overlook a resident patio."
The apartments would range from studios to two-bedroom units. Up to five retail spaces would be on the ground floor. And there'd be second-floor retail use of a combined bar, restaurant and outdoor bar.
Raley’s Opens New Store In South Land Park
Even with the economic challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, some companies are moving ahead with opening new locations. Sorich says a new Raley's store opened this week in Sacramento's South Land Park neighborhood.
"This wasn't the traditional store opening you'd see from Raley's ... there wasn't a big celebration, and the West Sacramento-based grocery chain encouraged people to visit the store only if they needed food and other essential items,” says Sorich. “The story also offers pick-up and delivery options."
The new store is at the corner of Freeport Boulevard and Wentworth Avenue. It replaces an older Raley's store that's farther south on Freeport Boulevard. The older store is scheduled to have its final day tomorrow Saturday. Raley's says a lease agreement with a new tenant for that space has been put on hold, because of the coronavirus outbreak.
