There are about 10 others in the pipeline right now ranging from 21 stories all the way to to another 50+ story tower. Most should breakground by the end of next year.

Two will be breaking ground any days now that are two blocks down the street. One is a 24 story office tower at 400 feet, the other is a 39 story condo tower at 444 feet. In addition to about 40K is retail space between both of them.

They will rank as the tallest for now. There is one that hopefully will breakground by next year that should eclipse these at about 650 feet

Downtown condo venture lands swank British hotel

The Towers on Capitol Mall has lined up a luxury hotel -- a 230-room InterContinental.

The deluxe British chain will open the hotel on the lowest 18 floors of the first of the two 53-floor towers that developer John Saca plans to build at 301 Capitol Mall in downtown Sacramento.

The hotel would be the second InterContinental in California -- the other is on Nob Hill in San Francisco -- and the 14th in the United States. There are 130 overall, in 60 countries.

Saca and InterContinental have finalized a contract to bring the hotel to Sacramento, Saca said Friday in a press release. The deal shows, he said, that Sacramento is ready for the chain's "impeccable services and amenities."

The InterContinental is the most luxurious brand in a reservation network that includes Crown Plaza, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites. People who live in The Towers will have access to the hotel's services, including concierge, maid service and valet.

As of late November, Saca's company had accepted refundable $10,000 deposits on 450 of the approximately 800 condominiums planned for The Towers. This month, the owner of a plush El Dorado Hills spa has been making plans to buy space in the high-rise for what would become the area's largest luxury spa.

Saca also plans to add a fitness center, stores and restaurants to his project.

Crew recently demolished the former building of the Sacramento Union newspaper to prepare for The Towers' construction. Saca expects to start building the condos in January.

InterContinental Hotels Group PLC bases its U.S. operation in Atlanta.
