A new player in the housing scene took a big step forward when the Truckee Planning Commission recommended approval of the hotel-residential development known as Coburn Crossing, with amendments.
The project includes a 114-room Marriott Springhill Suites hotel and 138 residential units, to be built on the 10.35-acre property wedged between Interstate 80 and Donner Pass Road, to the east of the Truckee Cemetery.
The project will be reviewed for approval by the Truckee Town Council on Jan. 24. If approved, Triumph will be moving dirt by June, and plans to have the hotel and apartments open by March 2018, according to Steve Virostek, co-founder and principal of Triumph Partners.
