245 North Arlington

Westgroup Designs was tapped by Jacobs Entertainment for the design of 245 North Arlington, their first ground-up development within the Reno Neon Line District, a $1.8 billion mixed-used project that will include entertainment, restaurants, retail and art. Designed in partnership with  Nelson Design Collaborative, the 84,000 sf project will add 60 apartment units to Reno’s downtown core, helping to revitalize Reno’s West Fourth Street Corridor and create a live-work-play environment downtown.  The new apartments come as Reno is experiencing a housing crunch, as demand outpaces existing supply.

The 5-floor apartment project will comprise different unit types, with 36 one-bedroom units accounting for the bulk of the rooms. In addition, 245 North Arlington will have 8 two-bedroom apartments and 16 studio units.

The new building offers a unique blend of style and functionality. The ground floor's versatile, mixed-use design caters to residents with an array of shops and boutiques and transforms into a charming event venue by night.

Originally designed as condominiums, construction cost increases necessitated that the project be converted to apartments, which allowed for a portion of the units to be set aside for workforce housing.
