Plans nailed down for McCarran, South Virginia project

A flurry of office construction is creating space for relocating companies, including 150,000 square feet at SkyPointe.

New stores, restaurants and office space are planned at one of the highest-profile corners in Reno.

Construction on a project at the southeast corner of South McCarran and South Virginia — the property near the Meadowood Mall that’s been vacant forever— is scheduled to begin in the middle of this year, said Todd McKenzie, president of McKenzie Properties Management Inc., the longtime Reno development company spearheading the work.

The project branded as “Skypointe” has been on the drawing boards for about a year as the development company worked out exactly how much space to devote to offices, restaurants, stores and parking.

The plan now calls for construction of a six-story, 180,000-square-foot office building, about 50,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and parking for about 950 vehicles.

The office building would on the north side of the property, close to the intersection of the two arterial streets. Retail and restaurant spaces would be on the south side, along South Virginia.

McKenzie said Skypointe will provide large, top-quality office spaces with onsite parking and nearby restaurants and retail. Tenants that need large amounts of top-quality office space today have few options in Reno.

For retailers and restaurant owners, meanwhile, McKenzie Properties notes the exposure provided by the large amounts of traffic that flow through

the nearby intersection as well as the potential business generated by the 1,000 or so people who are likely to be working in the new office building.

The architectural design of the project is being developed by Gensler, a global design and engineering company. The Colliers International office in Reno is handling leasing of the space.
