Northstar retail project to be sold
A real estate property trust from Orlando, Fla., said last week it expects to close this year on its planned purchase of 46 retail and commercial spaces at Northstar Commercial Village at North Lake Tahoe.
In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, CNL Income Properties Inc. said it committed to buy the retail property as part of its agreement to buy two Lake Tahoe ski resorts from Booth Creek Ski Holdings Inc.
The company bought Northstar-at Tahoe Resort for $80.1 million and Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort for $39.9 million in January from Booth Creek, which leased back the resorts and continues to operate them.
The introductory 80-hour program — announced in May as one solution to Nevada’s oft-lamented skilled labor shortages — is designed to train people in construction, building maintenance and related trades.
