The Sacramento market “has improved significantly during the past year as the economy gains strength and the housing market makes a steady comeback,” says Jones. “Growth in commercial construction is picking up, and we expect it to continue, particularly in the areas of health care and education.” In Sacramento, “where much of the employment is governmentrelated, private sector investment is a key indicator of a healthy market,” she says, adding that the Golden 1 Center arena has catalyzed downtown redevelopment, including the mixed-use Railyards project.
