Victorian Square Continues to Change

Posted: Updated:

An onslaught of development at Victorian Square is giving the Sparks corridor an entirely different look and feel. More than half a dozen projects are under way in the Downtown Sparks district, with even more to come.

J Carter Witt, President of Silverwing Development tells us that the movie theater in Victorian Square will reopen in 2 months. The Bridges, a residential complex, will be complete by July, and then the Flats, a mixed use commercial property, is slated for a summer opening as well.

Then there’s more, Witt says Silverwing Development recently acquired 3 more parcels of land in Victorian Square that will be the sites of future unannounced projects.

“It's a succession and it's kind of a puzzle that we're trying to put together, every project is going to be somewhat different from the next,” said Witt.

Witt most recently announced the Deco, this will be a $40 million high rise apartment building that will go atop the C Street parking garage. The ground level will continue to be used for public parking, while the rest will be assigned to the building's tenants.

Randy Kennedy, Director of Communications for the Nugget, says once special events season rolls around, a shortage of parking spots for visitors could be something they need to look further into.

“We always try to run shuttle and buses and highly encourage people to take them in, it's a quick and easy way to come in to the venue,” said Kennedy.

However, it's not just parking that the owners of the Nugget are trying to sort out. They're also looking to finalize redevelopment plans at the site of Bourbon Square.

“Really just something that opens up the square a little bit possibly for entertainment, performers and just seating,” said Kennedy.

Overall, while some of the projects at Victorian Square will be wrapping up in the summer months, developers are looking at a 5 year build out to complete the entire site.
