What to do with the K St. Mall? That's the challenge that local developers are figuring in a series of proposed redevelopments of this downtown mall, but one idea should sound extra tasty for local foodies. Rubicon Partners, the renovation team behind the Citizen Hotel at 10th and J streets, seeks to create Boqueria California. The vision calls for a farmers market, student and middle income housing, a new home for the California Department of Food and Agriculture and lots of food options that highlight the Sacramento region's bounty. Think of it as Sacramento's version of Ferry Plaza in San Francisco.
The developers are also seeking input on the project, and are hosting a public forum tonight at the Citizen Hotel (926 J St. Sacramento). The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and will be held on the 7th floor terrace. Chef Michael Tuohy will co-host the forum, and hopes for plenty of public input and suggestions.
