The SMUD Board of Directors approved the SKK Developments and BlackPine Communities team in 2021 as the developer for its 59th Street Reuse project, which will redevelop its 59th Street site into a multi-use, sustainable, transit-oriented, infill project that will help achieve SMUD’s ambitious carbon reduction goals by serving as an all-electric development.
In 1946, SMUD purchased the 59th Street Reuse project from PG&E when taking over as the electric service provider for Sacramento.
Since then, the community and the utility have grown exponentially. After moving its field services to the new East Campus building off Bradshaw Road, SMUD has engaged in an extensive process to evaluate the 59th Street property and decide future plans.
One of SMUD’s core values is to enhance the vitality of its community and engage local residents, community groups, and city leaders in discussions about community needs and ideas for redevelopment of the property.
