Downtown Truckee “Railyard” Project…500+ New Homes
Big Bay Area developers have big plans. One of them is to transform the old rail yard downtown into hundreds of upscale residences. John McLaughlin, community development director for the town of Truckee, told us it will be “something that would be more urban, but really appropriate in downtown Truckee.

McLaughlin said there will also be “some light industrial with some civic space…a museum and some open spaces.”
