In San Francisco, it would be a steal. In Sparks, it's a sign of the times.
Waterfront at the Marina Apartments in Sparks features 209 units of one or two bedrooms, plus a parking garage and a 2,000-square-foot roof deck. One-bath models ranging from $1,399 to $1,960 per month, and two-bedroom, two-bath options ranging from $1,799 to $2,855.
Location, location, location - the Marina setting, the adjacent Marina Town Centre, the amenities at Waterfront, the proximity to Outlets at Legends, and the easy access to Interstate 80 and Tahoe Reno Industrial Center (home to Tesla's gigafactory) to the east.
The 209-unit Waterfront is a $60-million project from LandCap Investment Partners LLC and Guardian Capital, both real estate investment firms out of Southern California. Waterfront lies across Harbour Cove Drive from Marina Village, an older development approved by Sparks officials in 2006.
At Sparks Marina, the developers purchased a parking garage already on site, then wrapped the new apartment complex around the garage, giving residents access to their parking spaces from the same floor as their units.
The apartments are arranged to take best advantage of marina and mountain vistas, including a view of Mount Rose. A handful of ground-floor waterfront units share a private green.
Interior fixtures, finishes and appointments variously include ceiling fans, pendant lights, vinyl plank flooring, double vanities, gas ranges, kitchen islands, breakfast bars, and washer-dryers.
The amenities include a wired clubhouse, demonstration kitchen (hosting chefs from the upcoming Sparks Water Bar next door), fitness center, year-round outdoor pool and spa, yoga and Pilates classes, dog spa, and a 2,000-square-foot roof deck with a bar.
So far, the tenants have been a mix of young professionals without children and folks in their 40s and 50s.
