In the last few years, Reno has redeveloped the city, and because of that, it’s found itself on several national ranking lists for best cities in a variety of categories. The most recent ranking has placed Reno as one of the top cities for corporate relocations and expansion projects in the next year.

 

The current times have caused many families and businesses to reevaluate their circumstances and make changes. That includes corporations making decisions on whether to relocate to mid-size cities over big cities.

 

The Site Selectors Guild conducted a survey in order to help determine the new trends in corporate location strategy and named Reno as one of the 11 cities that will be a top destination for companies to consider.

 

The survey also pointed out the top five industries with the most project activity, which could indicate the types of corporations we see moving to the area. Those industries include biotech and life sciences, advanced manufacturing, food and beverage processing, transportation and logistics, and software and IT.

 

Reno’s geographic location, lower costs, and educated workforce have made the city a hub for technology companies and startups, and with this recent survey, we can only expect that to expand. Experts believe that this will bring in high-skilled, high-wage jobs to Reno in the next year.

 

The pandemic has highlighted that businesses and remote-workers are seeking out cities that are less congested, more affordable, and offer a high quality of life. Below are the cities named as the top destinations for new projects:

  • Boise, ID
  • Colorado Springs, CO
  • Columbia, SC
  • Columbus, OH
  • Greenville, SC
  • Huntsville, AL
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Raleigh-Durham, NC
  • Reno, NV
  • Tucson, AZ

We can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for The Biggest Little City and which corporations will benefit from Reno’s vast resources and drive amazing employment opportunities for the community. If you have questions about the benefits of living in Reno and our predictions for the local real estate market, contact the David Morris Group.

Juicy’s Giant Hamburgers

If you’re a fan of the classics and like to know where you can get an old-fashioned, delicious burger, Juicy’s Giant Hamburgers never disappoints. They have placed in one or more “Best of” contests almost every year since they opened in 1982. Check out their S. Wells and S. McCarran locations.

Everything about the Lucky Beaver’s menu is one-of-a-kind.

New Event Venue Being Added to the Neon Line

David Morris Group - New Event Venue Being Added to the Neon Line - Best Reno Real Estate Team - Reno Events - Reno Growth

The Reno Neon Line continues to revamp much of the city and bring in new additions that brighten and liven up the West Fourth Street corridor. Now the group in charge of the project has a new event venue being added to the Neon Line to begin working on.

 

The venue is called Sands Connect and has already begun construction between the Sands Regency hotel-casino and Gold Dust West. The goal is for Sands Connect to meet the growing demand for residents and visitors to have a central event space for them to gather for things like food truck festivals, exhibits, farmer’s markets, etc.

 

Sands Connect will have a festival tent as well as an open promenade with a picnic area to encourage people to spend time in the area. There will be an outdoor stage, a beer garden, and the historic Nystrom House that was moved from its previous location will be incorporated into the plans for the venue. Currently, the Nystrom House is expected to be turned into the main hub for guests to grab a drink or a bite to eat at events.

 

Just as the Sands Connect is honoring the history and revitalizing the Nystrom House, the group in charge is looking to continue to incorporate parts of Reno’s past by tying in several classic neon signs that were once seen along the streets of the city.

 

By next year, the event venue hopes to be a part of dozens of community events, and Sands Connect is taking charge of that goal by hosting a variety of events in the coming months. Below is a list of some of the events scheduled for Sands Connect in 2020:

 

  • June 5 – 7: Reno Art Fest at Sands Connect
  • July 3 – 5: Red, White, and Brew at Sands Connect
  • August 6 – 9: Sierra Nevada European Car Festival at Sands Connect
  • August 28 – 29: Camp Tiny Houses at Sands Connect
  • September 4 – 6: Labor Day Weekend Party at Sands Connect
  • September 7 – 9: Playa Transition at Sands Connect
  • September 11 – 12: Little Hero’s at Sands Connect
  • September 19 – 20: Taco Fest at Sands Connect
  • September 25 – 27: Street Vibrations at Sands Connect

 

If you’re curious about what the recent changes along the West Fourth Street corridor have done for the real estate market and your home’s value, contact the David Morris Group at (775) 828-3292. We’re always happy to share our insights and give you a quote on what your home is worth.

Inside our Reno Food Adventures

No matter what kind of food you’re craving, Reno has it in spades. New restaurants are springing up before our eyes, so to keep up with the changing trends, we’ve gone on a few food adventures. We’re here to give you an inside perspective of the Rattlesnake Club and Von Bismarck.

David Morris Group - Inside our Reno Food Adventures - Rattlesnake Club - Reno Foodies - Best Reno Restaurants - Reno Real Estate - Reno Homes

Last summer, Rattlesnake Club opened its doors at 606 West Plumb Lane with a promise to deliver a culinary experience with a seasonal menu, original recipes, and a flavor profile that will have every guest singing its praises. With an on-site greenhouse and freshly roasted coffee, there was a ton drawing us to check out what they had to offer.

After looking through the menu, we can tell you that there are some fun options, and their cocktail list would make them the perfect spot to catch up with friends over dinner and drinks. While our experience got off to a rocky start, Rattlesnake Club quickly turned it around, and the kale salad and soup we ordered were wonderful. We’re already looking forward to going back for dinner.

Much like Rattlesnake Club, Von Bismarck opened its doors to the public last summer on Wells Avenue. With Eastern and Northern European traditions and a love for modern flair, Von Bismarck’s goal was to combine the two schools of thought for a completely unique dining experience. The communal seating and family-style servings are in place to get you to connect with those you’re dining with and leave with new friends and even better memories. The idea of sinking our teeth into traditional German cuisine brought us right to one of Von Bismarck’s tables.

Everything was beautifully presented, and we had the opportunity to sample a variety of small dishes. The items that stood out to us were the house-made pretzel, which is worth every carb-filled bite, and the cheesy spätzle puts any mac and cheese recipe to shame. The interior is cozy and inviting, and we’re looking forward to checking out the outside dining area and playspace when it’s open.

 

We’re wishing immense success to both of these wonderful restaurants, and if you ever need advice on anything from where to go for dinner to what changes we predict will happen in the Reno real estate market, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can be reached at (775) 828-3292 anytime.

Reno Becomes a Hub for Entrepreneurs and Remote Moguls

David Morris Group Reno Becomes a Hub for Entrepreneurs and Remote Moguls Best Reno Real Estate Broker Reno Business Growth

It’s becoming more and more common to hear of people working from home, and as that trend expands, so does the number of entrepreneurs starting their own businesses and looking for spaces to house them and their employees while they’re in the startup face. Seeing this need for a startup haven, the idea for Reno Hive was built.

 

The Reno Hive is the latest coworking space to open in downtown Reno and features 5,000 square feet of Class A office space. Located in the Arlington Towers, the office includes 2,000 square feet for community space, six cubicles, six offices, and two state-of-the-art video conference rooms.

 

With the increase of homegrown startups making the venture to become successful businesses on top of the nearly 100 companies that have relocated or expanded to Reno-Sparks in the last three years, the timing for a new coworking space couldn’t have been better.

 

The Reno Hive didn’t just want to be a standard coworking space, though. They took it a step further and used innovative technology that offers some great amenities to those using the space. With meditation pods, hammock chairs, community bikes, and float tanks coming soon, Reno Hive appeals to a wide audience.

 

Membership includes access to the meditation pod, float tanks, coffee, printing, high-speed internet, conference rooms, community bikes, free parking, and 24/7 availability in case you decide to burn the midnight oil!

 

The coworking membership is $250 per month, while semi-private offices and cubicles run about $450 per month. For businesses that aren’t looking for a ton of space to host as the headquarters while they get the company off the ground, this is a great choice. For those in the creative industry looking for a place with great energy and unrestricted wi-fi access, you’re sure to see some great ideas come to life here.

 

We look forward to seeing what new innovations and companies will come out of Reno Hive as well as how the coworking spaces evolve to encourage people to use their buildings. It’s a time of growth in Reno, and we’re happy to give our insights into what changes like this will mean for the area. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions about the Reno-Sparks area.

Stay in the Know: 4 Construction Projects Happening Around Reno

David Morris Group Stay in the Know_ 4 Construction Projects Happening Around Reno Reno-Sparks Real Estate Reno-Sparks Homes

 

The rattle of the bulldozers, hammers, and cranes have been heard throughout Reno. With all of the construction happening, it’s hard to keep up on what projects are taking place and what has been done in the recent months. We have an update on some really exciting projects everyone should know about!

 

Esprit Townhome Apartments
The Reno-Sparks housing communities are seeing a large need for middle homes, better known as a market between apartment living and single-family home lifestyles. The Esprit Townhome Apartments consist of 126 three-story townhouses tucked on a 7.88-acre lot. The construction area is close to Veterans Parkway and Geiger Grade. Construction crews are already clearing the land and it’s expected that the clubhouse will be finished in spring 2020 with residents starting to move in around that time.

 

OnTrac
This logistics firm is currently building a 186,600-square-foot space in Reno’s North Valleys. The new facility could be a complement or a replacement of the 165,000-square-foot distribution center on Vista Boulevard in Sparks, but there’s been no word on what OnTrac plans to do with both properties.

 

The Pavilions
The Pavilions shopping center on South Virginia Street continues to be touched up. The whole shopping center is getting a facelift with a new lumber and slate exterior. There has also been interior demolition of walls, grid ceilings, and HVAC systems.

 

Steamboat by Vintage
Last July a low-income apartment project broke ground and it’s finally coming together! The clubhouse is open and the first apartment buildings have residents moving in. The development has one, two, and three bedroom apartments available for people who fit the low-income household thresholds. The property also features three playgrounds, an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness facility, and a dog park.

 

Affordable housing continues to be an area that developers and city officials are focusing their attention. With this comes a lot of construction and new projects springing up. If you’re ever curious about what’s happening in your neighborhood and how the coming changes could affect the resale value of your home, contact us at The David Morris Group. We’re happy to give you an insider’s perspective into the real estate market and help you buy or sell a home!
