Modern on Cheney

This is another project designed by award winning architect Jack Hawkins and Baron Hershberger. It's nestled in the heart of the Wells Avenue District, on the east side of downtown. It's actually an alley infill project, meaning the project faces the alley and not a main street. Baron mentioned this was a popular trend in Savanah, GA, to revitalize the alleyways, and he has that vision for the alleys on the east side of Wells. This is their first project! This project is sold out.

Check out the Modern on Cheney. Same architect. These units are going to be amazing. There is one left. They are priced very reasonably. Also the Cedar Dwellings up by UNR. These units are going for the mid 300s as well. Check em out! while supplies last! (do I sound like a used car salesman? )

Hey Matthew, Check your facts! First of all, Modern on Cheney is about 1300 sq ft, with a one car garage. I would rather put my money into an energy efficient, infill project thats close to my work, rather than a home up in Sommerset. People who are interested in projects like these arent looking to make money, but more as a lifestyle investment. One who wants to be closer to the downtown, or to their jobs so they dont have to drive to work everyday. Someone who is into good construction and modern design. Thats who these are for. Obviously you dont get it. But I can understand one wanting to be in a 2500 sq ft tracked home in Damante ranch with their white picket fences.... more for your money! SUPER SIZE ME PLEASE!! (gotta love the american way)

Cedar Dwellings are going ahead, just not as fast as one would hope but the good news is that more might be offered soon. There is no rivalry. These are complimentary developments by developers who are not in it just for money—I believe they share the conviction that a sustainable Reno needs to embrace small, quality-driven urban renewal projects.

Where is the Modern on Cheney located exactly? I cant seem to find. Thanks.

Hey Rick, Modern On Cheney is on Cheney street off of Wells Ave. If you are driving south on Wells, turn left on Cheney, at the 7 Eleven. It is about a block and a half on your left. To access them, make that first left (I think) and then the alley is on your right. You will see the steel pillars. I was just climbing around on the scafolds yesterday to check out what the views will be like. loooooookin good!

why doesnt jack hawkins comment on his "projects?" where did he get the idea? or Baron? where did the design come from? i would like to hear from Hawkins or this Baron character about this rivalry. why is there one?

Matt and Kelly clash when he seeks clemency for a death-row prisoner; Steve considers selling the Corvette; a homeless man's death troubles Donna.... oh sorry, that was the 37th episode of 90210. There is no rivalry, maybe just commentors stating their preference of one Hawkins project over another.... Or maybe some trash talkers have been posting? Maybe the peeps in Montreux aren't liking the fact that projects like these are selling faster than they are being built and their overflow of homes aren't? hmmmmmm...... and the mystery remains a mystery....

why does renoguy say jack hawkin's "projects?" in quotes, is this implying that jack did not design this project? "where did the design come from?" I dont even understand the question, if Jack hawkins is the architect, isn't that where the design "came from"
