Del Paso Design Project: In Progress
In California’s Capital City, a dynamic, new Design District is in progress. Innovative entrepreneurs have created a development plan supported by the creative class to re-build a distinct destination neighborhood like no other in the region.
The neighborhood, originally surrounding a stretch of Highway 40, flourished in the Art Deco era with design and architecture from the 1920s through the 1940s, and including the post-war modern era. The development of the suburbs and a new freeway killed the vibrant neighborhood.
By fostering a dense, diverse, and walkable environment and furthering the unique character and assets of the area, the Del Paso Design District is a new community for design, digital (graphics, web, signage, and architecture) and light manufacturing businesses, part of an exciting mix of creative enterprises.
The Del Paso Design District is under development with theatres, public spaces and markets, film series, artist-in-residence programs, and a boutique hotel, and is welcoming new like-minded partners.
The District consists of the stretch along Del Paso Blvd between approximately Globe Avenue and El Camino Ave.
