It was once little more than a quick way in and out of downtown Sacramento. But the steady transformation of 16th Street into a housing and entertainment corridor continues.

Sacramento architects Vrilakas Groen is proposing a five-story mixed-use apartment building at the corner of 16th and V streets. The building would have 60 units and replace a vacant lot.

Architectural drawings for the proposed project show a fourth-floor rooftop patio and retail space with large windows overlooking 16th Street.

The site is two blocks north of the WX freeway and the building will “help define a new ‘entrance’ to the central city,” according to a project story submitted with the City of Sacramento by Vrilakas Groen. The project would “establish a new framework for pedestrian walking” in an otherwise car-centric neighborhood.

Of the 60 apartments planned for the building, 17 would be studios. Another 36 would be one-bedroom units and seven would have two bedrooms. The largest units would be 1,156 square feet.

Crews are working on another large housing project a few blocks away on S Street between 15th and 16th streets. Vrilakas Groen has plans underway with 47 apartments near 16th and S and another on the site of the former Thomas Jefferson Elementary School at 16th and N streets that would have over 100 units.

The largest pipeline development is a proposed apartment building that would have 200 units in a seven-story building at 16th and J Streets.
