Kings Inn is owned by a different developer.. They have taken very little interest in their property. (reminds me of a few builders in town) They should tear it down though. The montage is wonderful. finishing off better then I thought. One day perhaps I may buy a unit. :)

It could probably be re-used or added to like the Montage - less construction costs and less carbon footprint impact, as well as less infrastructural impact. It would be great to see more large-scale adaptive re-use in Reno.

The Kings Inn is an oddity. The owners are keeping the property up to code enough to where it's really out of the city's hands. You can't force someone to demolish a building, and the council has ordered reviews of code enforcement and law enforcement calls to the buildings numerous times, with no real power to do anything because the owner is keeping it up to just above code level standards. However, I heard a rumor that the owner is still bullish about plans for the property, and that it has transformed from residential units to more of a boutique hotel plan.
