Township Nine is comprised of four distinct development areas linked by a network of pedestrian-friendly streets and open spaces. The design vernacular is “urban mixed-used” where elements of the former cannery building can mix with contemporary mixed-use design elements typically found in warehouse conversion developments. The Transit Area is a high density mix of office and/or high-density residential and retail uses adjacent to a future light rail station on Richards Boulevard. The Central Mixed-Use Area provides a medium density transition from the intensity of the transit area to a central residential neighborhood. The Live-Work/Townhouse Area provides an enclave of primarily residential uses. The Riverfront Area is a collection of mid-rise residential building with ground floor retail that embraces the new Riverfront Drive along the American River.
