36th Annual California International Marathon

36th Annual California International Marathon

Posted by on Nov 29, 2018 in East Sac, Events | 0 comments

This Sunday December 2nd will be the 36th Annual California International Marathon! Get ready to cheer on 10,000 runners completing this marathon through our amazing city. Also get ready for some serious road closures! If you thought the Run to Feed the Hungry made it tough to navigate the streets, you haven’t tried to cross town when the CIM is going on. For us East Sac residents, the key times are the closing of J Street from 8:00 am until 1:30 pm. This closes J Street from the bridge to Fair Oaks Blvd all the way to Alhambra Blvd where the race takes a little jog to L Street and closes down L Street all the way to the finish line at the California State Capitol. Come out and cheer on the CIM which is certified and sanctioned by USATF and is a Boston Marathon and US Olympic Trials Marathon...

Sutter Park Neighborhood builders are Tim Lewis Communities and Urban Elements!

Sutter Park Neighborhood builders are Tim Lewis Communities and Urban Elements!

Posted by on Nov 20, 2018 in East Sac, Sutter Park | 0 comments

The official announcement for the builders of Sutter Park is out! Here is a link to the Sacramento Business Journal article by Ben van der Meer with all of the official information: https://www.bizjournals.com/sacramento/news/2018/11/19/sutter-park-developer-names-tim-lewis-urban.html Some of the most interesting details I read in the article are: Tim Lewis Communities will be building out 88 homes. The company is finalizing the architecture plans and hopes to have home plans on its website soon. They project that the first homes should be ready in about a year. I expect to see model homes sooner than that as well as designs, pricing and pre-sales. While the entry level condo price is projected they didn’t quote an entry level home price but they did give an estimated upper end of $1,800,000. Urban Elements’ Julie Young will be building out 11 condo’s above a 2,700 square foot retail section. Construction for the mixed-use development should start construction next summer. Prices for the smallest condo is projected to start at $265,000 and go up from there. It sounds like the retail space will host a cafe, coffee shop, salon and barbershop. There will also be 15 custom home lots for sale. These will probably fetch a premium for each lot and from what I’ve seen on the planning map, these are going to be larger lots. We are one step closer to seeing this great set of homes added to East Sac and I’m excited for my clients that have been waiting to buy in...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Builder!

Sutter Park Neighborhood Builder!

Posted by on Nov 16, 2018 in East Sac, Sutter Park | 0 comments

Word on the street is that the builder for Sutter Park Neighborhood has been selected!  I haven’t seen an official press release yet but I’ve heard that Tim Lewis Communities will be the builder for all of the homes in the development except for the little bit of mixed use commercial and condos.  Hopefully this puts us one step closer to hearing what the home designs, sizes and prices will be as well as seeing the construction starting to take shape. I know it’s not a lot of information, but it is a critical step to getting the information we all really want. I hope that by Spring we should see the model homes going up and hear what the prices and layouts will be!    You can Subscribe to my blog to receive all the updates that I get on the development. As an East Sac resident and very active Realtor I’ve been tracking and writing about this amazing development for the past 6 years. I have several clients that I’ll be helping buy their dream homes in Sutter Park Neighborhood as soon as that is a...

10th Annual 38th Street Blood Drive

Posted by on Sep 4, 2018 in East Sac, Fab 40's, Volunteer | 0 comments

The amazing McAuliffe family is holding their 10th Annual Blood Drive on Monday September 17th. I’ve already booked my time for giving blood and I look forward to seeing many of my neighbors there. Below is the email they sent me because hearing about the event in their words is better than me trying to paraphrase it.   Dear Friends and Neighbors, We like to think the 38th Street Blood Drive is a party, and we hope you’ll consider joining us.  We’ll have tents and tables on the front lawn, and two bloodmobiles parked on the street.  As usual, we’ll be grilling sausages and pouring our favorite beverages. Our tenth annual Blood Drive occurs Monday, September 17  from 3:00-7:00.  To schedule an appointment, please go to bloodsource.org/drives and enter location code M597.  If you prefer, please call us at 451-5507 or email alicemcauliffe12@gmail.com with your preferred time and I’ll schedule an appointment for you.  If you have any friends who would like to donate, we’d be happy to schedule them as well.  Anyone 17 or older can donate.  Those who are 16 can donate with parental permission, using a form available on the bloodsource.org website.  Please remember to bring a photo id and drink plenty of fluids beforehand.  If you have any questions about eligibility, please call 800-995-4420 and ask for the “Nurse of the Day”.  If possible, please make an appointment so we have no gridlock and we know how many folks to expect.  We look forward to seeing you and having a good time. Year after year, you keep coming back, even on 100 degree days.  We are honored and touched that  you continue to support this very worthwhile cause.  We do this in memory of my wonderful mom, Rosemary Lonczak, who lived years longer as a result of numerous blood transfusions. Sincerely, Alice and Pat...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Updates

Posted by on Aug 24, 2018 in East Sac, Sutter Park | 2 comments

I got some updates on the development at Sutter Park Neighborhood at the East Sac Chamber of Commerce. I know that so many of the neighbors (and those that want to be new neighbors) have been eager for new details so here is what I’ve gathered from listening to Randy Sater speak at our luncheon. The builder selection is almost complete and they should be able to announce who the builder of the homes and the mixed use space be next month. There will be one builder for the mixed use development and one for the rest of the housing except for the 11 custom home lots. There are some changes in the development and the original cottages design will be replaced by some more traditional homes. The mixed use section will have about 3,000 square feet of commercial and it is already fully leased to include some upscale food, a barber shop and more. There will be flats ranging from as small as 900 to 1,600 square feet above the retail, accessed by elevators. I’m very excited to hear about these since they will be the smallest and most affordable units in the development. Pricing is still to be determined but there should be properties starting in the $600,000’s and the larger custom homes will be over $1,000,000. The current mix looks like there will be 38 Traditional homes, 17 Courtyard homes, 29 Garden Homes, 11 Cottage homes and 11 Custom homes. They are predicting that we will have lots of new developments some time next month including more information on the recently updated official website of sutterparkneighborhood.com. The streets should be going in in a couple weeks and finished lots should be ready to build on by November. Hopefully we will see the first homes completed late next Spring. Stay tuned, this Fall should bring a lot of great developments to the...
