Silverwing Development has unveiled plans to revitalize Victorian Square into a walkable master planned community in the heart of Sparks. It says throughout the next five to seven years, the addition of more than 1,500 housing units, including a wide variety of lifestyle options, combined with 60,000 square feet of retail/commercial space will join the renovation of the Galaxy Luxury 14-plex Theater and projects currently under construction.
“The vision that Silverwing brings to this project is exactly what we need in Victorian Square,” said Sparks Mayor Geno Martini.“Residents looking for a vibrant walkable community conveniently located near our existing businesses as well as new shops, entertainment and dining options will benefit our economy and City building a strong sense of community in downtown.”
Victorian Square is home to a number of current businesses and special events. Silverwings says residents and visitors can expect to see the addition of a variety of unique bars, eclectic coffee houses, dining options, entertainment and boutique shopping.
“Our goal is to revitalize Victorian Square to be a vibrant and engaging downtown where people want to live and/or visit repeatedly,” said J Witt, president of Silverwing Development. “Complementing existing businesses and special events, our plans provide mixed use living with community spaces and amenities unparalleled in the area. Combine this with walkability, connectivity to public transportation and freeway access for a quick trip out of Victorian Square and you have the perfect blend for those looking for an urban lifestyle.”
