Fresh from the rumor mill and heard from multiple sources, I'm hearing Whitney Peak Hotel's new flagship restaurant, presumably located on the first floor, will be called Heritage, and Mark Estee is involved somehow. I'm hearing Josh Berreman from Chez Louie will be the chef, will be locally sourced comfort food, and have on-site butchuring similar to Campo. Exciting stuff, we'll see if it pans out!

As a part of his adaptive reuse Hudson project, Brian Egan has brought in Center Lodge LLC, which has just closed on Center Lodge today, located on the corner of Pine and Center Street.

Brian Egan has already started renovating the older rental properties in this area, which you can read about and see here.

At the same point in time, striking changes were occurring in the Wells Avenue Conservation District and Midtown, on a more organic level, stabilizing a neighborhood once though of as undesirable. Marmot Properties amassed dozens of properties in the neighborhood, spending millions acquiring and renovating the properties then renting them out fairly quickly. I've covered many of their renovations and you can check out some before-and-afters on their project page. Between downtown and the Wells Avenue Conservation District, however, was a neighborhood not seeing a lot of movement or development, with many properties such as the ones owned by Ryder Homes stuck in limbo. That's is all changing, however, with the Hudson Project....

Ok well it's not downtown or in MidTown but it's large enough to report on regardless. As you know I occasionally spotlight new developments outside of the Reno core (such as Legends or Summit Sierra Mall.) This sounds like a pretty cool project.
