Topic: Coffee Shop in Plan Review For Pine Street
Posted by: JG - 5/25/2016 5:22:53 PM
Looked it up, it was supposed to be a Dutch Bros coffee there. There's an article in the RGJ back in October about it. Any word what happened or if it's still in the planning stage?

BELOW what people are paying for a one bedroom house? 1000 Sq Ft By Haberae? I like what they do, but... is that one bedroom house managed by Stefano and the Marmots? That would be my only guess.

Nothing mid century about that 80's garage sale furniture and boarded up entry to the building.

Bocce & Skeeball is not my thing, but it sure is popular here in NorCal. A good clean hotel in downtown is what I’m exited about. I still love the casinos (and the vibe) in downtown, but the hotel rooms at those big resorts leave the guests wanting more. Both the new Marriott by the river and the Renaissance give new life for us downtown gamblers to have a clean (new) place to stay in walking distance of the casinos and at the river.

Bocce Ball is exploding all over the U.S. in bars & parks and Marriott has added them to a lot of their hotels and it has been a big draw. I'd go play even if I weren't staying there. IMO, Reno needs more of this kind of stuff.....what else do you want to see in the lobby? Chairs and couches? Yawn.

Exactly how many people do you know check in to a business hotel and yearn to finish off their day with a brisk game of bocce ball or hit the skeeball lanes? Where's the Chicago Beef stand that was such a hit at the developer's previous project? I hope this is a successful project, but it seems a bit out there to this business traveler.

I heard about a coffee shop going in next to MTO Fresh on S.Virginia street at an abandoned car dealership office. Have you heard anything about this?

Never a good sign when the designs say "RESTAURANT".

Best timing for a project like this. If Renaissance was not coming I'd say a project like this would be questionable. Hope projects like these move east and renovate the area south of the river and the Auto Museum and new Renaissance.

They are already listing the property on the corporate website: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/rnobr-renaissance-reno-downtown-hotel-and-spa/ But the opening date has changed from Dec. 2016 to Jan. 2017. If as nice as other Renaissances, the other hotels in downtown will have to kick it up a notch.

Yeah, I was gonna say, is that Skee Ball in the corner? That's weird, but rad!

This is true. A new small plates driven menu with craft cocktails and great wines will be opening around Memorial Day. Menu prices will be 5-15$. Menu has items like lamb, scallops, pasta bolognese, bacon wrapped dates, shrimp, Hawaiian ahi tuna, ceviche, etc. we look very forward to the opening.

Redevelopment at its best: taking the worst eyesore and making it topnotch. The benefits will radiate out into the neighboring area. Almost brings a tear to my eye!

The beauty of a container park is that it can easily be moved, so perhaps one day it show up on the trench, but its hard to agree with the stance that it is taking away from a potential build when the lot has been empty for 16 years. That is a very prominent lot and having it sit empty for so long in such a visible location is a disservice to the River Walk area and Reno. I like the move.

Would be better on the trench. This is just taking away from a possible build.
