RSM Design begins work reimagining Old Sacramento Waterfront

December 13, 2018 Uncategorized 0 Comments

RSM Design is honored to announce that we are part of a winning team to reimagine Old Sacramento Waterfront. Alongside a world-class team that includes LPA and Hargreaves Associates, RSM Design will serve as a signage, wayfinding and placemaking design consultant for the ‘Waterfront Ideamakers’ competition. The goal of the $10-30 million dollar revitalization and repositioning project is three fold, based on the directive from the City’s Office of Innovation and Economic Development:

  1. Create a national, regional and local draw to increase visitation
  2. Improve quality of life for all those who experience the waterfront
  3. Encourage revitalization through urban mixed-use development

Our Ideamakers team will engage in a series of design and key stakeholder work sessions including a team of design students from UC Davis to create a World-Class, iconic waterfront destination. The challenges are definitely ahead of us as we look to create opportunities out of obstacles!

Our series of design goals are:



Increase the attraction of the Old Sacramento Waterfront as a regional destination.



Enhance the District’s connections to the surrounding amenities.



Connect the energy and relevance of Sacramento’s history with today’s audiences.



Improve and enhance the visitor experience to the Old Sacramento waterfront.



Make our river’s historic environment more meaningful, relevant, and transformative.
