Sacramento Waterfront

RSM Design collaborated with a larger design team that focused on repairing the current isolation of Old Sacramento by reconnecting it to the City and reinvigorating the district as a place of entertainment and innovation. Our team provided a deep dive into the current state of the waterfront by analyzing brand position, car and visitor access, tenants and amenities, and waterfront disconnection with the goal of turning obstacles into opportunities. Working alongside Hargreaves International and LPA Architects, we developed a comprehensive wayfinding system that linked the waterfront back to the city. Our plan included a rich public art and interpretive signage system that celebrated the rich and often untold history of this once vibrant port.
