Why South Redding?

We hear a lot of people say they love the vision of Shiloh Park. They love the homes and really want a better connected neighborhood, but some longstanding locals have a hard time adopting the location. In this article our goal is to provide some perspective on why we think South Redding is a perfect place for families of all sizes to thrive and enjoy the North State lifestyle.

Location, location, location

First, South Redding is still Redding. That means little to no traffic when going anywhere. That means being 15-25 minutes to lakes, some of the world's best trails, less than an hour from picturesque water falls, skiing, snowboarding and other mountain life. That's a given for anyone living in our city.

One of the best features of living in South Redding is the quick access to the Sacramento River. Shiloh Park, for instance, is only a half mile from public access to the river off Girvan Rd and Cascade Park. 

#NewRedding is moving south (and downtown)

New developments in the Redding area are finding their homes either in the downtown core (which we like a lot) and in South Redding. There are a few logical reasons for this change in momentum. For one, Redding to the south is flat and extremely build-able, while much of our prime land to the north, east and west is already built out or too expensive to build on. There are some exceptions to this, but area experts on land development and entitlement predict Redding will continue to move south. 

Here are a few examples of new projects coming to South Redding:

1. Costco at River Crossing

Nearly since the day it moved to Redding, Costco has needed more space to handle the demand in our area. Once the plan to move off Oasis fell through they identified a great piece of land just off I-5 and the Bonnyview exit. With and EIR (Environmental Impact Report) in process, they are likely two years from breaking ground.

The retail shopping center in development on Bonnyview and Churn Creek Rd is planned for a grocery anchor with a handful of other retail stores.
