It’s almost the anniversary of Reno’s new marketplace known as The Basement, the perfect setting for coffee-loving hipsters, visitors, and regular ol’ residents alike.
The Basement ~ History
Now, The Basement harbors 15 vendors, including the modern design store, West Elm – the anchor tenant upstairs.
“We are setting the bar as Reno grows – offering a market place that is more progressive, geared towards the millennial (but not exclusively) as a common core for Downtown Reno,” says Brianna.
But not all went perfectly as planned. Renovations were quite tricky to navigate, as the post office is registered on the historic registry – which is just a fancy way of saying that there are specific requirements that must be adhered to in order to preserve the integrity of the historical building. Brianna received help from Dr. Alicia Barber, who helped curate this cool wall concept (below) and find the right photos, while Brianna’s team installed it.
