No April Fools, the Montage Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

04-02-09 -I'll have more details soon (courtesy Andrew Pridgen from Tahoe Ticker who is kindly going to share notes while I was on picture duty) but for now here are some pictures from The Montage ribbon cutting ceremony today, which featured Ellen Opphenheim from the Reno Sparks Convention Visitors Authority, Milton Glick from the University of Nevada Reno, Chuck Alvey from EDAWN, and Mayor Bob Cashell as speakers. All of them had great praise for L3 Development and The Montage. Local media was there to cover the event and interview some very happy Montage buyers. It was a nice closure to this chapter of the Montage, which had a lot of ups, and a few downs courtesy the economy. Now, a new chapter begins which involves residents moving in, and enjoying the building L3 Development worked so hard to complete. A building with no leins, high quality construction, and just take a look at the older renderings of The Montage, and look at the end result. They are identical. So props to L3 Development. Even in the midst of this economic mess we're in, the Montage will serve as the catalyst project downtown needs so desperately, in conjunction with the other great redevelopment projects currently underway. As we head into downtown's prime season of summer, I have a good feeling about The Montage, baseball and downtown in general. Click here for the pictures.
