Stonegate Reno Supports Recreation July 19, 2019
StoneGate Reno is taking many crucial details into account while planning the master planned community for Northern Nevada, like water and traffic. StoneGate Reno is also dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the historic Heinz Ranch by investing in recreational activities for the new residents. At the end of the 10 years, StoneGate Reno will include 3,815 single-family homes and 320 multi-family homes–all of which will want some outdoorsy things to do.
Of the ±1,378 acres of private land StoneGate Reno will encompass, about 25 to 30 percent of its total acreage will be maintained as common area/open space for its residents.
The project provides over eight miles of an extensive trail network that connect to the adjacent U.S. Forest Service property. StoneGate Reno’s 12-acre community center will combine a multi-purpose recreational building, neighborhood retail and accessible amenities such as a pool, fire pit and amphitheater.
What surrounds the StoneGate master planned community?
The property is surrounded by mostly vacant land to the north, south, east and west. U.S. 395 and the Cold Springs residential community border the land to the north. Forest Service lands abut the property on a portion of the east and south sides, which will be included in terms of trail networks. A small community of Unincorporated Washoe County single-family parcels is located along the northwestern corner.
A national study just ranked Reno as the second-best city in the United States for buying a family home. Wait, what? That’s right, the Biggest Little City is No. 2 among the top 100 metros in the nation for families looking to buy a house, according to financial technology firm SmartAsset. The ranking is a big jump for Reno, which placed 19th in 2018 — the first year that SmartAsset did the study. Only Fremont in California ranked higher than Reno.
Tesla, Switch, Apple, and many other large businesses have relocated or expanded to Reno. This is fantastic news for the growing northern Nevada economy, but it does do a wonder on housing.
Reno is experiencing an influx of residents. With that comes more people needing homes, more people filling jobs, and more children filling schools. The area of North Valley off North Virginia Street has seen some growth and the schools are filling up quickly.
