8th and R Parking Structure

The Capitol Area Development Agency (CADA) is partnering with the California Department of General Services (DGS) to develop a parking structure at the 805 R Street site (R Street between 8th and 9th Streets).  CADA is managing the design and construction and when finished will be the managing the retail space component of the project.  CADA’s goal is to assure the design of the parking structure fits the look and feel of R Street as well as creating an active and vibrant environment at the street-level.

Current Status

CADA is current reaching out the community to gather input on the building façade design, commercial retail desires, and ideas for art in the project.  In order to facilitate community engagement on these project aspects, an online survey has been created.  If you have opinions, ideas, or concerns about the project you can provide them in the survey.

CADA is currently conducting an environmental review of the parking structure according to the California Environmental Quality Act or CEQA.  A draft Mitigated Negative Declaration had been prepared and released for public review.  The draft MND and associated documents will be available for review until December 5th.    You may download the MND below or review a physical copy at the CADA Administrative Offices.  Please contact Todd Leon for an appointment if you wish to review the CADA hard copy.
