West Street Market Sign

2/7/09 - WEST STREET MARKET SIGNAGE - In early May 2008, the Agency issued a bid for courtyard reconstruction and exterior façade improvements to the three buildings at the West Street Market in downtown Reno. The bid package included the base bid and two 'Add Alternates'. Add Alternate A covered the extra cost to install stamped concrete versus asphalt in the courtyard; Add Alternate B was for fabrication and installation of the steel sign structure at the front of the West Street Market. Add Alternate A was selected and awarded as part of the contract award to Dennis Banks Construction on July 2, 2008. The proposal for Add Alternate B for the steel sign structure came in extremely high and was not selected because funding wasn't available. However, staff has renegotiated with Dennis Banks Construction for a more favorable price to complete Add Alternate B, and so this Wednesday it goes before the Redevelopment Agency for approval at the new lower price. Add Alternate B would be funded from the remaining available already-approved CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) funds. Below is the rendering for the steel sign and support framework. When you are downtown, take a stroll by the market and partkae of the great food and drinks there.

The sign will look fantastic and become a downtown Reno icon. I can't wait!

I am hoping the steel signage gets installed. That is the best part of the outside look. The small sign now is nice but should not be the only sign. Im also hoping for the old reno neon signs to be up in the court yard and back alley (that was my favorite part of the markets plan). Any word yet on the clock for the street center medium?

Just walked by the market a few hours ago. Appears that construction may have possibly started on the signage. There are two rows of orange cones, one on each side of the current fence, and covering up areas where the concrete has been removed. Possibly to begin installation of the base of the new sign and fence...
