This project was so close to happening, that the streets, electrical and sewer were all laid for the project, and the pads for the condos were about to be poured when BAM, real estate market falls apart in Reno. The large lot is located on Mill Street, at the terminus of Holcomb Avenue, by the Reno Aces Ballpark. The lot remains vacant to this day, the streets and singular lamp post still present. I liked this project, the style of the architecture, but alas, it was not meant to be.
The land was eventually rezoned to commercial, but nothing ever became of it. For a few seasons of the Reno Aces it was used as a paid parking lot, but that eventually ended.

This project was just announced. It's going in the huge empty weed-laden field to the East of the Auto Museum on Mill Street. 137 townhouses are planned for the "Village on the River" project, with 2 and 3 bedroom units going between $150,000 and $325,000. Developers say the building will be styled after the U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego, and that construction should start within a month of closing on the land purchase. Stay tuned for more on this late-breaking fast-moving condo project.
