Thank you for posting such a interesting article about Stephen Siegel and his plans to help revitalization of the old Truckee Lane Building on First Street next to the Truckee River.

This sounds great. I am moving to Reno this summer and would love to work in a space like this for some freelance and personal projects.

Topic: Maytan Music Center Building Purchased

Good to see that this property won't be vacant for too long. This is in the heart of Midtown and, while it is a shame that Maytan is leaving Reno, that this area will continue to add to the development of this part of the city. It's certainly an exciting time to be in Reno.

Interesting the place seemed cool at first then they started doing all these crazy changes. I totally agree management screwed up what could have been a cool place from the start. They never let people get used to it or feel comfortable. Just one crazy change after another. I will bet it will always be a total failure. Just like I will be surprised if they dont do more crazy changes when numbers dont look good after week two. Ohh well like I really care

This won't be the only BB Bar in downtown. One already exists in midtown. I just visited the other day. They opened in November and expanded to a Blow Dry Bar and Braid Bar in February.. It's a shame they weren't able to get press, considering they were the first in the downtown area.

Might be nice if you would post something other than some cryptic statement that leaves absolutely NOTHING other than to "be afraid". To fear without a valid reason is naive. However, to spread fear without a valid reason is just plane asinine.

Stephen Siegel has invaded your town. Be afraid Reno, very afraid! You have my sympathies.

I think it is a literal life saver! We have dyes, chemicals, growth hormones, flavorings, and preservatives in most of our stored foods. If you don't own a garden at least you can eat here...Great Thinking People!

Topic: Renderings for Truckee River Lane Building Rehab!
Posted by: geopower - 3/21/2014 4:33:53 PM
It looks like there will be a rooftop patio above the second floor of the taphouse, in addition to the balcony. They can't go any further south than the current small patio on ground level because that's a public path.

Let's hope they create more patio space for Sierra Tap House. Such a prime location to sit outdoors, but very limited space.

It looks like it has great potential for giving the whole downtown cultural district a boost. It appears, and I hope it stays true to this, that it will be respectful and keep intact a major portion of the original architectural intent. The Truckee River Lane Building is, I believe, one of the very few examples we have of an international style structure of this size and significance in Reno!

I really hope this happens. This location has always been great, but the building itself has been a bit tired. A rehab like this would give the tenant businesses a boost and would probably have a synergistic effect on the rest of the riverwalk area.

If it's not a hit the third time around, I'm sure they'll get it on the fourth. Maybe if they put Alice Waters on retainer? Or just don't make it look like a street market inside a half-finished arcade.

Topic: Center Street Lodge Downtown Sold

I look forward to the day this happens to the lakemill lodge. That place is a haven for druggies and a HUGE eyesore for that entire area.

Awesome, now we just need about every other motor lodge downtown to be sold!

I am glad you scored a decent rental property James! Except I have no idea who you are nor would I ever pretend to be an expert on real estate investments and advise you on a purchase downtown, I'm a web and e-learning developer lol. are you sure you arent getting me and Mike over at ReReno/Reno Realty Blog confused ?

Posted by: James - 3/1/2014 1:49:02 AM
Sorta like my property I purchased on state st that YOU personally told me "wasn't worth it" and "needed way too much work" etc... $35k later along with a new roof,plumbing,electrical,landscaping,paint, completely remodeled kitchen/bath while keeping all original charm later.... It rents for $825/month all day long and I've had offers to buy at considerably more than my investment. I saw the potential in this area 3 years ago. Live and learn right mike? ;-)
