On behalf of the state, DGS Acting Director Esteban Almanza (at podium) congratulated the city of Sacramento, Capitol Area Development Authority and CFY Developers on the grand of opening of the R Street Warehouse Artist Lofts in Sacramento.

The State of California, through the Department of General Services, is a member of the CADA Joint Powers Authority, along with the city of Sacramento. DGS has partnered with CADA for the past 35 years and it affords us the opportunity to give back to the Sacramento community. CADA continues to build housing to meet needs for individuals at a variety of income levels, many of whom are state employees. In fact, the Capitol Area Plan, originally created under Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. in 1978, speaks to the need to provide housing for the full spectrum of household types — families, singles, the elderly, the workforce and empty nesters.

DGS is proud to have played a role in the success of the Warehouse Artist Lofts, which is a striking example of an environmentally responsible development. Through its participation in CADA, the state has helped develop over 1,000 new residences in downtown Sacramento and has helped create an environment that is walkable and accessible to public transportation.
