Permit Submitted for 210 North Sierra Mixed-Use Project Downtown

by Mike Van Houten / May 13, 2021

A permit has been submitted for 210 North Sierra Street, formerly Rise Nightclub, Metropolis, and a club named 210 North.

The permit reads: 


According to this Loopnet ad for the commercial space on the 1st floor, which is current and last updated 5/7/21, "In addition to our ground floor offering, 210 N Sierra provides an opportunity for small, high growth companies, artists, and entrepreneurs looking for a flexible place to grow with our 17 second floor perimeter loft units, a unique option to fit their needs for either live-in or work only.  Views of Mt. Rose will be available from all private balconies facing south and south-west. Rustic steel and concrete flooring will keep these units well insulated, quiet and private, for any kind of business or lifestyle. Connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces for live, work and play activities is an integral part of our design. Tenants of the 2nd floor lofts will not only have use of conference rooms, and an open work / meet-up area, but also 24 hour access to an amazing rooftop deck bar / lounge area via the massive central staircase. An additional four units situated on the roof will also enjoy their own large patio deck."

I'm stoked for this project to get started! It's been a long time coming. This building had a string of bad luck after its run as a few night clubs. If this project is built out as advertised on Looopnet, it will be amazing! Check out some renderings below.

    Contrast this with the local news story from 2019 where the property next door, the Ace Motor Lodge, is bordering on being unlivable and presenting severe hazards to tenants, despite being one of the few low-income spots left in downtown. It will be interesting to see what happens when this new project takes shape, and whether it will finally force the blighted property to either upgrade or, more likely, go out of business, and what it might mean for those who are displaced.

    It will mean more homeless. Obviously. Super pretty architecture, the Californians who can afford it will love it.
