It's "new project day" here at Downtownmakeover, where I'll be introducing three new residential projects coming to downtown and Midtown. The first is 3rd Street Flats, formerly the Kings Inn and codenamed K2 Apartments.

The project details were officially released this morning!

Basin Street Properties, a prominent Northern Nevada and Northern California real estate investor and developer that owns three large office towers downtown, has partnered with Nevada developer and contractor Bentar Development to develop the 3rd Street Flats. This 94 unit upscale apartment complex is slated to open Summer 2016.

The new, luxury apartments will feature open concept floor plans with contemporary finishes including high-end appliances, custom kitchen islands with European cabinetry, quartz surface countertops, pendant lighting, plank flooring and ceramic tile in baths.  It will also feature a sky pool and sun deck on the third level, a fitness studio, secure underground parking and the pet friendly amenities of a bark park and dog washing station.

Not only has the project been a collaboration between Bentar Development and Basin Street Properties, it has required considerable foresight and cooperation from The City of Reno.  “The City of Reno has been very helpful in moving the 3rd Streets Flats Project forward,” said Par Tolles. “City Manager, Andrew Clinger and his team have gone above and beyond to help us work through the challenges of bringing a long vacant property into the modern era.”

The luxury residential units will be located on floors two through seven and will consist of 94 one and two bedroom floor plans.  The complex will also feature approximately 9,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, onsite property management, fireside roof deck and barbeque area, panoramic views, social lounge, on-site storage and bike amenities.

Stay tuned for an interior construction tour!
