Patagonia is moving into downtown Reno thanks to visionary people like Brian Egan. He and others are transitioning historical locations in to great new venues. According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, “The Hudson Project, on Center and State streets south of the Truckee River, was originally a car dealership for Hudson Motor Car Company in the 1940s. Most recently, the building housed Machabee Office Environments before it closed too. Egan purchased the building and refurbished it over the last few months while in search of a major retailer.”
The old post office in downtown Reno is another building that is being refurbished. It is an Art Deco wonder. I am so grateful that it was saved for future generations. Major retailer West Elm will be occupying the ground floor along with other retail shops. If you haven’t yet checked out The Basement, I highly recommend it. It is fun to see what they have done so far. There is a lounge area where you can take a break from your day and enjoy a refreshment in a cool space.
