About the Project

Our Vision

The Kings Beach Center will reflect the community character and serve as an economic, community and environmental revitalization for the town. Our vision is to provide an opportunity to bring the site up to current environmental standards, provide an economic boost and create a vibrant, quality experience for locals and visitors.

Background

For more than a decade, public input has helped guide today’s plan, which is to improve the physical attributes of the parcel in a way that is economically sustainable and responsive to environmental conditions.

The design will maintain the community character of Kings Beach with its blending of architectural styles and canopy of Jeffrey Pines, Incense Cedars and mixed-firs.

The uses for the site have been designed after years of community, County, TRPA and consultant input. The proposed project will be consistent with the Tahoe Area Plan and Kings Beach Vision Plan.

Location

Located on North Lake Blvd. between Coon St. and Fox St., with the exception of the mini-golf course, this 3.5 acre site is currently underutilized from an economic standpoint. The Kings Beach center and Eastern Gateway Redevelopment project team has made several rounds of revisions to the proposed design based on community feedback. The project will upgrade the parcel to include new retail and dining businesses, housing, parking, a library and plenty of outdoor space for the public to use and enjoy.

Benefits of Proposed Project

Stimulate the economy by creating new jobs and attracting more visitors to Kings Beach 

Keep tourism dollars in Kings Beach by adding lodging in the Basin and reducing single-day trips

Create civic use space, including a public library

Increase neighboring property values by improving the aesthetic of the commercial core

Improve community gathering space and encourage walking and biking

Improve the sustainability of Kings Beach and Lake Tahoe with new buildings that meet modern environmental standards and sustainability goals of the Tahoe Basin Area Plan
