K St. Redevelopment/ Brilliant Earth/ Ozzie/ Sound Advice

K Street Redevelopment The long-contemplated redevelopment of K Street in downtown Sacramento is closer to becoming a reality. From four contending firms, a city advisory board has recommended two developers to re-do two blocks of K street between 7th and 9th streets and the city council will be discussing the options at next Tuesday's council meeting. Today on Insight, we'll talk with one of the developers about their plan. Bay Miry is a principal in D&S Development, which is perhaps best known for its popular remodel of a block of R street between 14th and 15th streets.
