After the Great Recession that hit the country so hard, northern Nevada has rebounded – impressively. For the last few years, the area has been very attractive to companies looking for a western expansion, and Reno in particular is emerging as one of the most desirable up-and-coming places to live and play. There are the obvious financial benefits of moving your business to northern Nevada, of course, but that’s just the beginning.
Here’s a quick look at some of the natural and man-made wonders driving the great Reno business relocation.
Fountain District Redevelopment
This downtown redevelopment project will see dilapidated motels transformed into retro chic retail and high-end condos with green space. It’s another piece of the puzzle (like the Riverwalk District and the Truckee River Whitewater Park) turning downtown into a vibrant and undeniably cool destination for people migrating into northern Nevada.
Midtown has become a hipster haven bursting with trendy restaurants, boutiques, yoga studios and artsy coffee shops, all while staying true to a gritty Reno vibe (think strip clubs and marijuana dispensaries, though the push is on to move the former to the outskirts of town). This district is wildly attractive to the younger crowd, which makes up a large portion of the city’s workforce.
With some of the best skiing and riding in the country only 25 miles from Reno, residents of the city can escape to the mountains with extreme ease. And, with over a dozen world-class resorts around the Lake, there is no shortage of year-round activities for adventure seekers and nature lovers.
Northern Nevada Benefits
With one-day shipping to the eleven Western states, low taxes, a relatively low cost of living and so much to do, it’s no wonder why so many companies are relocating to Reno.
But there is one caveat. As the city develops and changes so rapidly, it can be hard to keep up with the latest changes. If you are considering relocating your business to northern Nevada, it makes sense to hire a local agent who can help you navigate Reno’s revitalization and keep you up-to-date on incentives and market information.
