New features include opening the third floor of the building, restoring the high-ceilings and adding a skylight on the first floor.

New windows have been added to the upper floors to bring in more natural light and also provide a beautiful view of the Truckee River:

There’s tons of new shops including the fancy yet ultra comfortable West Elm.

After taking a tour of their beautiful home decor items, you may work up an appetite ~ which can easily be satisfied by heading down The Basement, where you will be welcomed by a comfy coffee shop and other tasty little eateries to tempt you.

If you’re craving chocolates, don’t forget to stop by Sugar Love, a local chocolate shop that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

While you’re wandering around The Basement, you will find a wall dedicated to spotlighting the history of the post office – starting from its humble beginnings and how it transformed throughout the years. Check out some photos I snapped:
