Next to Student Housing

In 2018, the Nishi Gateway Student Housing project was approved by the City of Davis,  housing for approximately 2,000 students adjacent to both UC Davis campus and the Entrepreneur Zone on 720 Olive Drive West. The amount of private investment into this region will not only increase foot-traffic but the high quality of life unique to Davis. 



Noting the significant zoning limitations in the City of Davis, flex space is often one of the most desired zoning allowed in because of the multi-functional uses allowed for such commercial zoning including: R&D, wet/dry lab space, office, distribution, logistics, warehouse, storage, recretional & retail,
