Hey Ken so great you could attend! I was stuck in Hawaii.
Great post....glad to see their vision has been upgraded from a pencil drawing. That rendering was really starting to annoy everyone.
The moratorium for building on the Mizpah lot expires October of 2008, so it will be really interesting to see how aggressive the developers are to pick up that land across the street. Did you see the RGJ article/my post about the Hyatt Summerfield going in across from the baseball stadium? I will SO miss the Nevada Inn and other assortment of weekly motels that once lined that block. NOT. A sleek business-oriented all-suites hotel (with free wifi, large rooms and full kitchens) with a brand name people actually recognize and respect could add a boost to that area as well. Now if we can just get that Waterfront project started.


Hadn't seen the news about the Hyatt, but that's a very positive development. A business brand hotel is an essential asset in a legitimate downtown and quite a vote of confidence in Reno. I had no idea there was a moratorium on building on the Mizpah lot, but one thing SK said during one of his speeches is that the retail portion would be getting built after the stadium itself. This project is going to take a little while to get completed. Also I took note that there's nothing in the conceptuals at this point for the south side of the bowling stadium. As for the waterfront... well. Great looking project. Fingers crossed as always.


Great post, and very accurate portrayal of the speakers, the vibe and the overall feelings of those of us who know that great things are around the corner for Reno.
