The well-established, well-known Arlington Avenue salon Origins, will be relocating to Atomik City at 400 Mill Street, and Recharge Reno-Tahoe will be taking up the entire first floor of the Atomik building, located on the corner of Mill Street and Holcomb Avenue. Atomik City is the two-story building on the corner of Mill and Holcomb that was formerly part of the Urbanito project, and recently purchased by Luke Hoffman.
"We're excited to be part of this redevelopment area just east of downtown and plan to embrace the multifaceted community that the Urbanito block represents." -Luke Hoffman, Atomik City owner/developer.
The second floor of the building has its own postal address, 410 Mill Street, and offers '60s-style "Madmen" office suites complete with original hardwood maple floors, mid-century lighting and slick original heaters. Six of the nine suites are already spoken for. But let's see who will be occupying the first floor!
Origins Hair & Personal Care Salon offers women's and men's haircuts and colors, manicures and pedicures, waxing treatments, facials, nail color, and more. They will be relocating to Atomik City's first floor.
