Canyon Flats will be a four-story, 158-unit student housing project constructed on a podium slab that will house up to 508 students of the University of Nevada, Reno. Located at 661 N. Center St. in downtown Reno, the 'L-shaped' development will be conveniently positioned on the corner of East Sixth Street and North Center Street, across from the Circus Circus Reno hotel.
The premier student housing property is just 1,500 feet from the University of Nevada, Reno's main entrance on North Center Street, offering students easy walking and biking access to both the main campus and downtown Reno.
Once complete, Canyon Flats will offer fully furnished one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartment plans, along with pet-friendly spaces, a rooftop deck with a pool, 24/7 fitness center, study rooms on every floor, coffee bar, cable and Wi-Fi, and covered parking.
Fort Myers-based Spire Construction is the general contractor for the $37 million project, which was awarded by student housing developer University Housing Group.
Spire Construction's team for the project is led by Mike Ritz, project manager, and John Bills, superintendent. BSB Design is the architect for the project, Christy Corporation, LTD is the project civil engineer.
Canyon Flats is scheduled for completion prior to the fall 2020 semester.
