Thank you for your web site. Since we bought at the Riverwalk ten years ago - your site has kept us informed on changes in our neighborhood. Thanks we appreciate your work.

It's awesome to see so many fitness options in downtown/Midtown!

Got my popcorn ready for WW3 over MidTown boundaries! Of course I would be the only correct one to say, the commercial area of it would most likely exist between Forest and Holcomb, and Mt. Rose and California. This would be on the outer cusp of it, which I wouldn't give it a district name, because I think we are too trigger happy with our B.S. district names, but wouldn't argue its name of "MidTown Anytime Fitness" or whatever... the name sells, so name your product/store with it.

The interesting thing about those new houses on Mt Rose street is that a bunch of them have newly installed bars on their windows - that was not something I expected to see. I agree - I don't understand what the appeal is of those large expensive houses so packed in together and so close to the street.

I don't see any mention about the casino role in this action plan. Downtown would be much more vibrant if the casinos improved their streets-capes.

I'm hearing the various properties for The Standard project have for new sale signs on them now? Anyone know what the story is on The Standard project currently is?

Agree about the casinos, particularly now that the Carano's own the Big 3. I know part of the business model is to keep people inside, but it would be much better for business and tourism if Virginia Street was nice and vibrant. The 5 block dead zone between the university and downtown could be improved so much if the casinos did something. I'm also really hoping the Standard at Reno student housing development actually happens. That would be a great start at improving the area.

Reno need to partner with the DT casinos to improve the pedestrian experience in the casino district, ask them to bring some of the store out front and clean up the rift raft right outside their doorsteps.

I love the big glass panels. If the big white wall could be transform into vertical garden, it would be awesome!

This plan looks comprehensive and could could be a good road map to making downtown vibrant and dynamic. Hopefully, we can start to implement the strategy soon and get beyond the endless analysis. The most important challenge is to address the homeless and panhandling issue in a strong and permanent fashion. It is by far the number one complaint of visitors to the area and is a major deterrent to repeat visitation. It also prevents businesses and residents from moving into the downtown area. Without addressing the homeless issue all of the other efforts will fall flat.

I hope this was a REAL "Ken M" contribution. It feels authentic but doubtful given reach of this website http://gizmodo.com/ken-m-is-the-most-epic-troll-on-the-internet-1739028329

Mural and possible Living wall already in the works!

On second thought, that wall could totally be spruced up with an awesome mural, I'm sure an artist would love to transform that, and it would become part of Reno's growing Mural Art Walks.

Looks cool, I like the glass, though not a huge fan of the geometric boxes in the concrete, looks kind of 70's-esque, as well as the pillars. I kind of see Ken's point, I instantly laughed at the balcony facing the brick wall, I mean, it's pretty obviously strange. I'm so glad to see new living spaces in Downtown and hope the best for this place, could be amazing.

To P.E., I dig the design and think the building will be a vital piece to revitalizing what was once a dead block that was not fun to walk down. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your support, Mike! I'll take credit for the "bad design", Ken. Sorry you think so. We're just trying to preserve some of our City's identity while making it a better place to live. You should take a crack at it too! It's going to require all of our participation.

Ah Ken M, so you would rather have a crumbling weekly motel there that didnt even meet code standards, had no kitchens or even hot plates for renters, and invited living standards that no one should have to endure, over a rehabbed building? Im a fan of a balance between high and affordable rents. Not every residence downtown needs to be cheap, or expensive. Rents for the building havent been announced yet, unless you know something I dont. As far as bad design goes, thats a matter of your opinion. Every single comment on my site from you is negative. Why do you bother reading my site if you cant seem to ever find anything positive to talk about? Does anything actually make you happy? lol

somebody is a staunch supporter of bad design and high rent.
