Completely. Unreal. This is going to be the same old story of those gorgeous condos the built on state street and asked $400k for 10 years ago. The developer didn't sell a single one and once turned over to the bank, sold for $150-200k overnight. These are decent looking places but this is just not in the realm of feasible.

When are you doing a follow-up about the Fountain District? I have some C.A.V.E. snark that is dying to get out about how when I think of the Sands and GDW the first thing that comes is TOTALLY fountains... and "art"... and "entertainment". Actually, that's all the snark I've got... I just want to know what Jacobs' plan is, and how long we can expect barren plots of land.

The layout may work but I find the styling is weak, very cold and austeer. I know there on budget but I was hoping this project would add some charm to our community. This is far from being charming.

That's no different than any other city. Townhomes are going up in colorful areas as downtowns and midtowns fill in with nicer properties. Midtown has plenty of older, more affordable properties...this helps diversify the area even more. And the people who will buy those townhomes typically spend more money at local businesses, which will encourage more to open in Midtown.

Well, I (We were) was wrong about the Cottages. Apparently, someone in this town can afford those, it sure ain't me. They did look nice the other day that I drove past.

At those prices, the average buyer will need to make more than a $80,000/year. Hipsters, even the trust funders, will be hard pressed to take on a $3,400 mortgage/taxes/insurance payment.

Topic: Isles Tea Shop on Center Street to Become Tiki Bar

Geopower, many restaurant use Sierra Gold Seafood in Sparks as their seafood distributor. The quality of their fish is amazing. Flown in daily. I would LOVE to see a Sierra Gold Seafood extension in Reno. Ponderosa Meat Co. in Midtown is already set up so consumers can buy from them directly, having one for seafood would be sweet.

I don't know what tiki people are, but I'm guessing they're not Polynesians. I suppose it's good they'll be catering to an underserved bar demographic, but midtown isn't lacking bars. I'll be excited when a fish market opens. Somehow the Reno restaurant scene is awash in decent fish, but the grocery stores aren't, that I've seen.

This is Soo Exciting for local Tiki people. My biggest hope is that the new developers will stick to a classic Tiki Bar and not just throw up some carved Tikis and then some TVs for sports night. There is a huge Tiki presence here so I encourage the developers to use them for input if they are interested. Lookung forward to the end result!

Yet another deal announcement prior to closing. Though knowing the parties, it is probably real. You buy real estate hoping to add value and cash flow to your investors, so the buyers here must view these Midtown properties as currently under performing to current and projected lease rates. I suspect the current tenants might disagree. Though I haven't worked specifically in any of these projects, I have reviewed leases and work letters here for 2 prospective tenants. I recommended "punt" on both, though one ultimately signed a lease. Initial lease rates are at what the developer considers "below market" and generally include a dramatic increase after year 2. The Tenants consider the initial rents At Market and are going all ostrich on future built in rent increases that will break their businesses. Then throw in 18 months of SVA being under constitution by RTC and my guess of 40% business income loss. So my verdict is still out on this deal.

Sounds like Bernie Carter and his brother are looking to focus on the Old Post Office development and allow the next generation of developers to takeover midtown. Very interesting all around
