Chateau Project Almost Finished in South Lake Tahoe

Posted: Updated:
Construction started on the Chateau Project back in August. In just a few weeks, 30,000-square-feet of retail space will be open for business just across the state line from Harvey’s.

Crews are in the final stage of a $15 million project that's been in the works for the past several years.

"The landscaping is going in, right now, as we speak. The painting is done. The walls are built. The structures are built, and they're ready for tenants to start moving in, the beginning of July," says B Gorman, President  & CEO, Tahoe Chamber.

A variety of businesses are all set to move into the new building. Most have already signed their leases or are close to an agreement. "The Anchor restaurant at one end is leased out, there's a high end jeweler going in, a Western wear store going in." The units are located in the heart of the south shore right next to the Stateline casinos and the Heavenly Village. 

"It's a great location for people to just wander and enjoy the weather and enjoy all that we have to offer."

While the new shopping area is expected to attract visitors it's also something the locals have been patiently waiting for. "It's about time. It's been a big hole in the ground over there for too long. They finally, just today I noticed, they put the greenery up. So, there's going to be a lot more life over there."

Jordan Swallow works at the Stateline Brewery and Restaurant, just across the street from the Chateau Project. He says it will benefit both vendors and customers. "It's just creating more and more of a centralized corridor for your shopping and dining and the mountains, right there."

Bankruptcy halted the project during the recession -- leaving an eye-sore behind.

"Like many other communities, we had a project that started right before the recession hit, and unfortunately, that made capitol hard to come by for a lot of businesses," says Gorman.

Further plans include a $400-million project on the backside of the property that includes hotel and condo units and a convention center.

There's no timetable for when we could see construction start on the next phase of this project but officials are hopeful that the completion of the front side will kickstart the next phase of the project.
