RENO, Nev. – Carson City based Mission Senior Living on March 18 celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Mountain Lakes Estates Retirement Community in South Reno.
According to a March 21 news release, upon completion in spring 2020, the 121,000-square-foot, four-story building will offer 130 apartment homes for active adults 55 and older.
The ceremonial groundbreaking at the location — off of South Meadows Parkway, just past Sprouts in Reno — recognized several project partners, including Pinnacle Architects, PA, MSL Construction, LLC, Contract Interiors, Western Pacific Electric, and Alpha Omega Mechanical.
Local dignitaries, including Ann Silver, CEO of Reno / Sparks Chamber of Commerce; Bob Gastonguay, representative for Congressman Mark Amodei; and Nate Helton, representative for Senator Jacky Rosen; were also on hand.

In addition apartments, the community will feature walking paths and expansive common areas for gatherings and entertainment; a dining area where chef-prepared meals are served; a billiards room and fitness center; and outdoor gardening areas, among other amenities.
Mountain Lakes Estates is expected to employ roughly 25 full- and part-time team members. Go to http://www.mountainlakesestates.net to learn more.
Demolition will be completed in three phases: asbestos abatement, interior demolition and exterior demolition. The first two phases have already begun inside the 150,000-square-foot retail location formerly known as Shoppers Square; the first visual of outside demolition will be in early October on the northwest corner of the project.
