Tolles Development Company celebrated ongoing construction efforts at The Village at Rancharrah Thursday through a girder signing ceremony with Reno City Council members, investors, dignitaries, village tenants and the community. Several new shops and restaurants were also announced for the project.
Par Tolles, principal and CEO of Tolles Development Company; Chip Bowlby, president and CEO of Reno Land Inc.; and dignitaries announced upcoming tenants and construction plans for The Village at Rancharrah before signing steel construction beams — symbolizing the introduction of this brand-new city center.
“The Village at Rancharrah will act as Reno’s Living Room. It will be a place where the community can take a break from their busy daily lives and unwind,” Tolles said. “Construction is underway, and we anticipate the development to be open and fully operational by next year.”
The Village at Rancharrah will be a mix of retail, restaurant and lifestyle offerings. Restaurant and business owners who will be occupying The Village at Rancharrah showcased their food, services, goods and products during the event.
The development will house around 20 local businesses that will include waterfront dining, shopping and office spaces. Some of these businesses that have previously been announced include Dolce Vita Wellness Spa, Süp Restaurant, Coffeebar, Rancharrah Clothing Company, Chez Vous, Centro, The Bar Effect, Art Obsessions, and a waterfront restaurant by Tom Turner, owner of four renowned Lake Tahoe restaurants.
New shops and restaurants that were announced include:
