Yaeger Architecture was the Executive Architect for the Legends at Sparks Marina Destination Development, located next to the Sparks Marina Lake in Sparks, Nevada. The Project applies the sophisticated use of simple materials with the graphic interchangeability and excitement of an urban retail and entertainment district.
A promenade extends from the Marina Lake through the development, connecting the retail shops, restaurants, and entertainment, giving a refreshing relief to the outdoor shopping district experience. The shops and restaurants are designed in a playful way, allowing for key elements such as fountains, sculptures, outdoor fireplaces, and themed planting areas. A central signage tower attracts the visitor to the center and creates a focal point. Lighting at night brings everything alive for sunset dining by the water’s edge or a stroll or boat ride through the center. Enhanced paving, plantings, fun storefronts, and roofing make for a dynamic daytime experience. A minor league baseball park and a hotel/casino are included in the master plan as the centerpieces of the entertainment district.
