– Have you ever wanted to own your very own canyon? You can buy a nice 14 acre one for $123,390. This is the canyon that gives Canyon Center East of McCarran between I-80 and 7th Street its name. Although it looks daunting and is zoned Open Space, I see some single family SF6 development on the eastern strip. Let me know if any of you wants to give it a go!
One take-away here is that much of the open space we all assume is public land is in fact not. Peavine can be developed about a half a mile up the slope north of Somersett. Caughlin Ranch is girded by develop-able to the north and west.
– Dick’s Sporting Goods has a 50,800 SF big box superstore starting its journey through Reno Planning. It will be located in the SE section of Meadowood Mall, tucked behind Sears. Dick’s is a big enough deal that it probably could have qualified for STAR bond financing at the Outlets at Sparks if Sheel’s didn’t have an “exclusive”.
– Along side Dick’s, Cinemark (Century) is planning a 54,350 SF multiplex movie theater. Cinemark also owns the 58,633 SF Park Lane Cinema 16-plex only 2 miles away. Park Lane was built in 1998, is no longer state of the art, was part of a traffic generating mall that has since been demolished, no one I know has anything good to say about the theater experience there, and I can’t imagine the same operator maintaining 2 complexes is such close proximity. Strike 4 on Park Lame.
