The Kings Inn to become 3rd Street Flats - Rendering and Details!

by Mike Van Houten / Dec 3, 2015

It's "new project day" here at Downtownmakeover, where I'll be introducing three new residential projects coming to downtown and Midtown. The first is 3rd Street Flats, formerly the Kings Inn and codenamed K2 Apartments.

The project details were officially released this morning!

Basin Street Properties, a prominent Northern Nevada and Northern California real estate investor and developer that owns three large office towers downtown, has partnered with Nevada developer and contractor Bentar Development to develop the 3rd Street Flats. This 94 unit upscale apartment complex is slated to open Summer 2016.

The new, luxury apartments will feature open concept floor plans with contemporary finishes including high-end appliances, custom kitchen islands with European cabinetry, quartz surface countertops, pendant lighting, plank flooring and ceramic tile in baths.  It will also feature a sky pool and sun deck on the third level, a fitness studio, secure underground parking and the pet friendly amenities of a bark park and dog washing station.

Not only has the project been a collaboration between Bentar Development and Basin Street Properties, it has required considerable foresight and cooperation from The City of Reno.  “The City of Reno has been very helpful in moving the 3rd Streets Flats Project forward,” said Par Tolles. “City Manager, Andrew Clinger and his team have gone above and beyond to help us work through the challenges of bringing a long vacant property into the modern era.”

The luxury residential units will be located on floors two through seven and will consist of 94 one and two bedroom floor plans.  The complex will also feature approximately 9,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, onsite property management, fireside roof deck and barbeque area, panoramic views, social lounge, on-site storage and bike amenities.

Stay tuned for an interior construction tour!

    What are European cabinets? Plywood direct from Romania?

    LOL, European Cabinets. Romanian plywood made into cabinets by the Swedes (Ikea).

    Snark aside, this is good. And I won't even use the line "no-one will pay the high rents for these", as Stefano has proven that there are still stupid big fish to hook.

    Would it have killed them to put some windows in the end elevations?

    It will be interesting to see how much, if any, new development around this block this project spawns. If you think about the neighborhood around the Montage critically, the Montage development really did very little to improve the surrounding blocks.

    I wonder why would someone move into our current downtown? There is no infrastructure. In order to make the downtown liveable we need to create supporting surrounding such as food shops, supermarkets, cleaners, hardware stores, art spaces, boutiques etc. Also need to clean up the space so it becomes pleasant to stroll around there. Nevertheless I find it great that a building gets a facelift and a new start.

    What ever happened to the three new projects?

    I ended up getting a massive sinus infection, David. As soon as I feel better I will post the other two. One is a new dorm/student housing at 1385 North Virginia, the other is a conversion project at 227 Moran.

    These condos look very nice… Except that it appears that they don't have balconies? A condo with no balcony just seems way too dark and confined; like you're living in a hotel room.

    Great, looking forward to seeing those projects. Would definitely love to see more mixed use built around the university.

    If they were serious about renting out their retail space, they would price it more competitively. At $1.85 per sq ft, that's more than some areas spaces near Meadowood which is the most active commercial spot in Reno.

    Maybe they saw how successful the Montage was at renting out their retail space and decided to adjust their prices accordingly ...
