Edgewater at Virginia Lake housing project underway

Post Date:07/08/2014 5:00 PM
Demolition began earlier today in preparation for Edgewater at Virginia Lake, a new 336-unit condominium/townhouse subdivision. The nearly 10-acre project will be located on the southwest corner of the Eastshore Drive/Lymbery Street intersection.

Along with the demolition of the current Virginia Lake Apartments, built in the 1960s, the Silverwing Development project will include the removal of 87 existing trees along Eastshore Drive.

Although the project is on private land, the City of Reno wants the public to know that the landscape plan for Edgewater at Virginia Lake includes 227 new trees, including 175 large trees, consistent with an overall renovation plan for Virginia Lake that was previously approved by Reno City Council in 2004.

“The City of Reno continues to support reinvestment within our urban core,” says Fred Turnier, Community Development Director for the City of Reno. “Over the long term this more closely aligns with the vision of Virginia Lake that was set forth by Council. It’s also better for the environment because it will result in a more diversified tree inventory.”

On November 7, 2013, the Reno City Planning Commission approved a request for a tentative map to develop the project. On April 16, 2014 the Reno City Council approved to transfer a total of about 34,000 square feet of adjacent land along Eastshore Drive and Lymbery Street to Silverwing Development.

A 2,500-square-foot clubhouse overlooking the pool and a state-of-the-art gym and business center are also included in the plans for Edgewater at Virginia Lake. The first occupancies of the new for sale and rental homes is expected to occur in March 2015.
