SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) - Construction is underway on a major luxury apartment complex next to the Sparks Marina.

The 280-unit complex will be known as "Lyfe at the Marina." It's located on 10 acres of land at the corner of Marina Gateway Drive and Lincoln Way, next to the Outlets at Legends.

Development of this community is a joint venture of Reno-based S3 Development Company and its local investors along with an affiliate of Village Properties of Belmont, California. Pacific West Companies is the general contractor on the project.

Blake Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of S3 Development, and his partners praised the assistance of the City of Sparks in bringing “Lyfe at the Marina” to reality.

“The Sparks City Council and staff have been such an asset to making this project such a wonderful addition to the City of Sparks and Northern Nevada,” said Smith. “They have served the community well.”

Amenities at the complex will include a state-of-the-art clubhouse with a resort-style pool, outdoor entertaining areas and kitchens.

The first homes in the community will be available in January, with full completion expected by May of 2018.

The community is just three minutes from the intersection of Sparks Boulevard and Interstate 80, allowing residents quick access to major employment centers in Sparks, Reno and the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center.
