Flagship Project in the Bridge District, Affordable Housing
The Rivermark is a 70-unit affordable apartment complex in the Bridge District of West Sacramento. The inaugural project in a new 188-acre smart growth area, it’s located just a block from the River Walk Trail and three blocks from Raley Field, home to the Sacramento Rivercats AAA baseball team. The complex offers residents access to shared community spaces, such as laundry facilities, indoor recreation space, common outdoor areas, and secure bicycle storage.
Psomas provided engineering design and topographic mapping, which included preparing site improvement plans for a five-story residential building and a one-level podium garage. The unique storm drain system in the Bridge District utilizes infiltration beds under the sidewalks to dissipate rainwater with storm drain pipes for overflow conditions. Each project is required to infiltrate 10% of the site with an on-site system. Detailed coordination was needed with the plumbing engineer to bring runoff from a specific roof area to the infiltration bed. Numerous sustainable building systems and components were incorporated throughout the project.
