Phase 1 of the Events Center is successfully coming to completion in the next few weeks. The MontBleu parking lot is ready for winter guests.

The TSEC project has seen significant progress.  Approximately 70% of the waterline and 50% of the stormwater basin has been installed.  Work continues on the basins, on excavation, and spoils removal on the original tennis court area as well as the upper parking lots of the resort.

The Tahoe South Events Center officially began to take form on July 9, 2020, with our “socially distant” Groundbreaking Ceremony on-site at the Montbleu Resort Casino and Spa. NBC celebrities, Doug Flutie and Kathryn Tappen were honored guests at the ceremony and proceeded to dedicate the afternoon by chipping golf balls into a reduced 19th green. A creative adaptation to the traditional sod-turning ceremony.

Site work began in earnest on July 20 and will continue through until October 31. In a true spirit of community and business cooperation, excavated spoils from the Tahoe Events Center site are being removed and exported across Highway 50 to the Tahoe Beach Club to provide the Beach Club with much-needed fill for their expansive project. A “win-win” for both projects.
