New housing, retail, restaurants, and medical are among the many construction projects currently underway in Citrus Heights, as the economy recovers from a period of stagnation during the pandemic.
Major projects in Citrus Heights can be seen on Greenback Lane, Sunrise Boulevard and other streets across the city. Here’s a few of the top projects:
Surgery Center. Construction of a nearly 16,000-square-foot surgery center at the corner of Stock Ranch and Sylvan Road is progressing quickly. The center is a cooperative effort of Dignity Health and Texas-based United Surgical Partners International, and will reportedly employ about 70 physicians. New surgery center takes shape in Citrus Heights
Checkers. A new Checkers burger drive-thru is nearing completion outside Steve Cook’s Fireside Lanes bowling alley at 7911 Auburn Blvd. The restaurant will feature no indoor seating by design, something the franchisee says is a beneficial design especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Retail plaza. A new Starbucks with a wrap-around drive-thru appears almost ready to open at a new retail center constructed at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Sungarden Drive. See prior article: New Citrus Heights retail plaza, drive-thru project moving forward
Low-income apartments. Site work recently began on Sunrise Boulevard for a new 47-unit low-income, supportive housing project, managed by Hope Cooperative. Related: Work begins on new low-income housing project on Sunrise Boulevard
Mitchell Village. The 260-home development has been underway near Sunrise Boulevard and Greenback Lane, with homes nearing completion and its first residents expected to move in by the end of this month. Related: Citrus Heights to welcome first residents in 260-home development this month
One notable project which stalled last year was the transformation of the former Kmart building on Auburn Boulevard, which was set to become a new Studio Movie Grill. The site now stands half-completed after the theater chain backed out of its plans during the pandemic and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
City officials say they hope to help the property owner attract a new tenant to the site, which is zoned for hospitality, retail and entertainment uses.
