700 J HOtel
sacramento, CA 

The proposed project is to convert the one of Sacramento's historic landmarks into a destination hotel, introducing new life into a bank building built in 1915. Located at the corner of 7th Street and J Street, the building is known for its granite-clad exterior and bronze-framed windows, with terra cotta figures adorning the sixth floor. Having served as office space in recent years, the building could be another destination of downtown Sacramento, bridging the gap between past and present. The existing building consists of 7 stories with the penthouse and basement. The total building area is approximately 83,000 SF with type I, concrete structure.


The hotel lobby, strategically positioned on 7th Steet, provides a distinct entry point, ensuring a seamless separation from the bustling energy of the restaurant on J Street. The mezzanine level is allocated for a spa and meeting room functions, offering a serene escape within the heart of the city. The second to seventh floors will be transformed into 107 guestrooms, providing an intimate and luxurious accommodation experience.


By maintaining the exterior's architectural authenticity and creatively repurposing interior spaces, the project not only pays homage to Sacramento's rich history but also introduces a unique blend of heritage and modern luxury to the heart of downtown.
