North Lake Tahoe’s Crystal Bay community is remaking its history by welcoming a Silver LEED-certified mixed-use redevelopment offering 59 residences; a 275-room, five-star hotel; wellness spa; boutique shops and galleries; and casino. Kicking off the first phase is Granite Place, consisting of 18 two- to four-bedroom condos ranging from 1,641 to 2,718 square feet and featuring spa and barbecue terraces overlooking the lake, as well as access to resort-like amenities such as 24/7 concierge services such as car detailing and pet grooming. An added bonus to purchasing a mountain retreat in the new neighborhood?
“Nevada continues to have one of the least-burdensome tax structures in the nation, offering buyers the opportunity to invest or live at Granite Place while taking advantage of Lake Tahoe’s tax-free north shore,” says the project’s developer, Heather Bacon. Sales already have begun on the condos, with prices ranging from $1.65 to $2.9 million and completion set for late spring.

The former Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows on the Big Island of Hawaii has been undergoing a $100 million-plus redesign and revitalization and will be reborn as Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection in late 2019. Expect the transformed resort to feature 32 Hart Howerton-designed oceanfront acres dotted with sacred royal fishing ponds, natural lava plains, tropical gardens and white-sand beaches, along with public areas and guest rooms done by Meyer Davis.
Among the highlights: ocean-front and ocean-view suites offering panoramic coastal views; ultra-luxe bungalows with private pools and butler service; two signature restaurants; a 5,000-square-foot fitness facility; spa; and an infinity-edge adult pool and lounge with cabanas. Adding to the lineup is Auberge’s signature adventures program, with activities including standup paddle boarding and outrigger canoeing. “Mauna Lani’s show-stopping features will evoke the senses—from the visually captivating design aesthetic to the soul-stirring experiential programming—for a thoughtfully crafted journey,” says General Manager Sanjiv Hulugalle.
