39°N is a vibrant new hotel, housing, restaurant/retail and community space right in the heart of Kings Beach. Walk to the lake or your favorite restaurant or coffee shop. Gather around an outdoor fire pit, browse the farmer’s market, or settle into your new home. With 10,500 square feet of restaurant and retail space, 39°N is being designed with walkability and easy access to transit in mind. Utilizing sustainable design practices and U.S. Green Building Standards, 39°N is anchored by a 153-room hotel and will offer 36 for-sale townhomes and 74 units of for-rent workforce housing. The project is intended to bring a new energy to the Kings Beach core.
39°N will be built on land specifically designated for redevelopment by Placer County. The project follows the guidelines of the Tahoe Basin Area Plan and includes a multitude of enhancements and benefits including new visitor lodging opportunities, retail space for local and regional business, and much needed workforce housing – right in the heart of the Kings Beach community. It is our goal to fill the retail spaces with local businesses, coffee shops and restaurants and create a walkable community gathering space - a place for both visitors and locals to enjoy without the need to get in their cars and drive.
The 153-room hotel fills a critical lodging need in the Kings Beach area – enticing visitors away from neighborhood short
term rentals and into the downtown Kings Beach core. Our market research shows that visitors to Kings Beach have been wanting a new hotel lodging option. Additionally, the Tahoe Basin Area Plan outlines the need for new, quality lodging on the North Shore - specifically within the Kings Beach town center that has been slated for redevelopment. 39°N will give visitors the opportunity to park their car, walk to the lake, and enjoy the 10,500 square feet of shopping and restaurant offerings that will be located directly along North Lake Boulevard. Placer County laid the groundwork for a walkable Kings Beach core with their $40 million in streetscape improvements completed in 2016. 39°N is the fulfillment of Placer County’s vision for a revitalized Kings Beach.
With 10,500 square feet of restaurant and retail space, our goal is to fill the 39°N storefronts with your favorite local businesses and restaurants. It will be a walkable shopping and dining experience, with options for sidewalk cafes and gathering spaces including a firepit to enjoy.
There will be a mix of 36 three- and four-bedroom townhomes offered for sale, each with a large 2-car garage. The townhomes will be built utilizing sustainable U.S. Green Building Standards and are being designed to have a mountain modern aesthetic.
39°N is very proud to be offering 74 for-rent workforce apartment units located next to a TART (Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transportation) transit stop. The units will be one and two bedrooms. The apartment building will have a small park and outdoor gathering space, with on-site parking and carports. Apartments will be offered to residents who work within the physical boundaries of the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District and will be available for those who earn between 80-220% of Area Median Income.
