Silver Peak to Open in Freight House District

The owners of Silver Peak Restaurant and Brewery will open a new restaurant in June 2010 in downtown Reno at 300 E. Second St., adjacent to the Reno Aces baseball stadium. Silver Peak owners David Silverman and Trent Schmidt signed a five-year lease including options, with Basin Street Propertie, a prominent West coast real estate investor in commercial and mixed-use properties, to occupy 3,720 square feet at the northeast corner of the ground level of the 141,575 square foot office tower. The new operation will include a restaurant specializing in pizza made famous at Silver Peak’s original location, a full-service bar and restricted gaming. The owners have not yet named the new restaurant given its primary focus on pizza, but diners can expect a “Silver Peak-esque” twist to its identity.

“The construction of Aces Ballpark creates an opportunity for us to again participate in the revitalization of our downtown corridor,” said Silverman. “We’re excited to be part of the process, and look forward to seeing lots of locals and tourists enjoying the Freight House District area.”

Owners Schmidt and Silverman opened the first Silver Peak Restaurant and Brewery location on Wonder Street in Reno in 1999 and a second location in downtown Reno in 2004. Silver Peak is known throughout northern Nevada for its unique and original selection of food and beers brewed at its Wonder Street location.

The owners have no plans to make any changes to the original Wonder Street location, but are evaluating their total presence and priorities in the downtown Reno area.

300 E. Second is a 15-story tower with four floors of Class A office space with 11 floors of parking totaling 977 parking stalls. The facility is located in downtown Reno and is in immediate proximity to restaurants/services, and offers on-site security and on-site management. Centrally located immediately across E. Second Street from the Reno Aces baseball stadium and within walking distance of City Hall, the County Courthouse and the Federal Court Building, Park Center Tower features panoramic views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains, Truckee Meadows and downtown Reno. The facility also offers direct access to Interstate-80, the Amtrak station and all major bus lines.

Silver Peak was represented by Dominic Brunetti, a broker with NAI Alliance.

“Bringing over a restaurant with the reputation of Silver Peak’s into our building was important for Basin Street and our property,” said Scott Stranzl, Basin Street Properties’ vice president of leasing. “Being able to offer a wonderful dining option that is in very close proximity to our growing list of tenants at 300 E. Second St. is yet another benefit we can offer.”

Sorry to hear of the Silver Peak Brewery questioning the future of their First and Sierra Street location. Since it obviously is one of the most successful eateries in downtown I can only assume they're looking at a lower lease negotiation with the city. Otherwise, the possibility of putting all their downtown marbles over on Second Street, away from the theaters, downtown condos, bars, lounges, nightclub, etc. makes no sense. I'd love a good pizza place downtown but not at the expense of the present business. Say it ain't so Mr Silverman and Schmidt and reaffirm your committment to the First and Sierra Neighborhood.
