courtyardbymarriottYou may have figured out that I am more than a bit of a cynic when it comes to development.  In fact, my user name on the old blog was “jaded”.  Once in a while, I’m proved wrong.

The long delayed Courtyard By Marriott hotel located on the Truckee across from Aces Ballpark is moving forward – the $250,000 site development permit has been issued and the $9M permit for the 135 Room 4 Story main building is awaiting pick-up.  This is a tough site, with just about every local and regional agency reviewing the project, and in the Riverfront Promenade district of the Downtown Regional Center.

No word yet on Herb Simon’s plan for the old Waterfront Tower site up the block at 2nd and Center.  3.35 Acres, also on the Truckee.
