Downtown Reno student housing projects gets name, web site and renderings

by Mike Van Houten / Sep 30, 2021

A downtown student housing project currently under construction at 9th/Evans launched a web site, a name, and some renderings of what the project may look like. 

I previously reported on the permit and demolition of the block to prepare for the eight story student housing project. The project consists of one bedroom upt to five-bedroom residential units on top of a parking deck. 

It's quite large. Check out the renderings below. Amenities include study areas, a hot tub, and a fitness center. 

Here's the website link:

    I love that the street level rendering has a Mercedes G Wagon, Maserati, Bentley, and a Porsche. Total college scene!

    they are building all these new nearby and on-campus residences.... At almost the same time they discovered they can do half of the classes on-line. So no need to even BE on campus!

    No Willey. I have a son that just moved into Park Place on North Virginia. What I learned is that the parents care as much about the experience as they do the education. There’s a forum on Facebook that parents of students at UNR use to communicate about various topics and the biggest issue parents had re Covid was remote learning. The vast majority of students disliked the experience and the university had to ensure the 7-8k+ students from Clark County and out of state that there would be in person instruction. There is a reason they are building these things as fast as they can. Park Place is opening and the one near Lawlor — across from the student athletic building — will be huge as they are getting ready to pour the foundation soon.

    I thought it was supposed to be like 12 stories.
