Owners of the vacant site of the former Lakeridge Tennis Club are now planning to build eight 4-story buildings to house 314 condominium units. Reno’s Planning Commissioners approved those plans on March 17, 2021, but 18 individuals have each filed appeals to City Council. Those appeals will be heard during City Council’s meeting on April 28, 2021.
