Arlington Towers is smack dab in the heart of downtown Reno at Arlingtont and First. Several retailers take up the bottom floor including Whisky and Reno Collective.
Designed by John Sardis & Associates in 1968, this 23-story building screams 1960's. Shiny brass beams and deck railings make the building a landmark in downtown Reno, and you just can't miss it gleaming in Reno's unique skyline. I believe the building houses 194 total units.
A friend of mine owns a penthouse and I have another friend who lives on the 14th floor. The views are simply amazing. The building is nostalgic, with mirrored lobbies and elevators.
There is almost always units available, from studios to penthouses.

Arlington Towers is the best! This is a classy joint with a pool, sauna, and 24 hour door person. I love being able to hit up the movie theatre, casinos, and bars and walk home instead of driving drunk. In the summer, I can listen to the Artown events from my balcony or walk across the street and go river surfing in the whitewater kayak park. Association fees are a bit high, about $300 per month for a studio, but this goes towards maintenance, upkeep, and emergency funds. My view is awesome and I feel like a pimp daddy living in a little slice of urbanity in little old Reno. This building has been successfully operating for 40+ years so there are few surprises like with the new developments. About 30% of the residents here are young professionals with a large slice of seniors which keeps the place quiet yet vibrant.

One of the FEW great places in RENO.
We overlook the river.
Good management & maintenance.

Only negative side is that the HOA does not allow for large dogs...

That's not really a negative.
