Sugar Pine Village
All Modular Units have been installed for Phase 1 

 Vertical construction of 68 affordable housing units is well under way and all of the modular units are in place.  Related & Deacon Construction will be working on the rest of Phase 1 through Winter and we're hoping to welcome our first tenants in October 2024.  Phase 1 includes 12 Studios, 12 one-bedrooms, 23 two-bedrooms, and 21 three-bedrooms.  Phase 2 financing closed in August 2023, so expect to see Phase 2's vertical construction to start in Spring of 2024, hoping to welcome tenants in Fall 2025.

South Lake Tahoe Mayor Devin Middlebrook said in a news release, “This marks a significant step forward for this innovative project. The city of South Lake Tahoe is aware of the urgent need for workforce housing. There is still plenty to do, but I am incredibly happy with what we’ve accomplished thus far through this public-private partnership.”

In 2022, the California Department of Housing and Community Development awarded the Sugar Pine Village project $19.6 million as part of its Multifamily Housing Program, which assists with new construction, rehabilitation, and preservation of permanent and transitional rental housing for lower-income households. Sugar Pine Village will deliver much-needed affordable, workforce housing to residents earning 30-60% of El Dorado County Area Median Income and is the largest affordable multi-family housing project in South Lake Tahoe to-date.
