Final Environmental Impact Report for the
California Department of General Services
Resources Building Replacement Project

The California Department of General Services (DGS) is posting the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the Resources Building Replacement Project The proposed project involves demolition of the existing surface parking and construction of a new office building (approx. 800,000 gross sq. ft. office space) on the block bounded by 7th/8th and O/P Streets to remedy critical State office space deficiencies in downtown Sacramento and allow the Resources Building (1416 9th Street) to be vacated. The Heilbron House will be retained in its existing location (corner of 7th and O Streets) and a child care facility will be placed on the roof of the Subterranean Building on the block bounded by 7th/8th and N/O Streets. The FEIR identifies significant, or potentially significant environmental effects in the areas of Utilities and Infrastructure, Air Quality, Noise, Cultural Resources, Biological Resources, and glare/shadows.

For any inquiries related to the FEIR, please contact Ms. Stephanie Coleman using the following addresses:
