RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - An investment group has filed a variance with the city of Reno to build a new hotel on Court Street.

According to the Variance Application, CAI Investments of Las Vegas is asking for permission to build a 20-story hotel on Court Street. The variance is needed because the project would “shadow” Wingfield Park.

The property is between Court Street and Island Avenue, between S. Arlington Avenue and Rainbow Street.

A video posted on the CAI website, CEO Christopher Beaver explains that the project is a non-gaming, non-smoking upscale hotel. CAI also plans to take advantage of the area’s geothermal energy.

The developer called it one of the best properties for hospitality development in the United States.

There is no word yet on when the project will go before the city of Reno for review.
