Twelve miles of I-80 forms the northern border of Tahoe Reno Industrial Center with US 50 just miles from the southern border. While the park has small sections in two other counties (Washoe and Lyon) its landmass equates to 65 % of Storey County. Just the first phase of TRI Center is made up of 5,000 acres that will accommodate 100,000,000 square feet of industrial product. As a point of reference, the largest nearby market, Reno/Sparks (shown in blue on the map), currently has 55,000,000 square feet of developed industrial space. The Tahoe Reno Industrial Center in just Phase One is capable of doubling the Reno/Sparks industrial building market. Today, there are three phases (15,000 acres) complete and ready to go with all of the utilities and infrastructure to support any type of commercial development. Within the 50-mile radius shown on the map you will see that based on the 2010 census, we have roughly 660,000 people. To give you an idea of the logistics behind our location, within 250 miles there is a population of 13 million and just over 43 million within the 500 mile radius.
The Tahoe Reno Industrial Center is just nine miles from Reno/ Sparks with local access to the Reno Tahoe International Airport just 15 miles away. The park is made up of 107,000 acres, 160 square miles, making it, according to our research, the world’s largest industrial center. In the past 10 years, 3,800 acres of industrial zoned property, 22,000 acres of mixed-use residential commercial property and 7,000 acres of alternative energy use land has been sold. TRI Center has three interchanges accessing the park off of Interstate 80. Exit 32 USA Parkway, State Route 805, is the main thoroughfare and crosses the heart of TRI Center for 16 miles, eventually extending all the way to HWY 50. (The initial 8 miles of USA Parkway was completed by the developer and is in full use with utilities and infrastructure. The additional 8 miles, 4 of which have been graded, is ready for completion by the State of Nevada.) When connected to HWY 50, USA Parkway represents a reduction of 45 minutes of drive time from the Reno/ Sparks market to Las Vegas and Southern California markets via Interstate 95.
The Tahoe Reno Industrial Center Today has three phases of 5,000 acres (15,000 acres total) complete and ready to go with all of the utilities and infrastructure to support any type of commercial development. There are acres of Foreign Trade Zone sites where foreign goods may be admitted without being subject to customs duties or certain excise taxes. Current park residents include APL Logistics, Arrowhead, Benco Dental Supply Company, Diapers Plus, Eagle Picher Minerals, FedEx Supply Chain Services, Food Bank of Northern Nevada, James Hardie, PetSmart, Pioneer Nut, Plow & Hearth (1-800-FLOWERS), Schulter Systems, Tire Rack, Toys R Us, US Ordinance and Wal-Mart Distribution Center.
Tahoe Reno Industrial Center dose not have a residential community located within the industrial center. In our professional opinion commercial business with its 24/7 activity and residential development with its schools and soccer moms- do not mix. This gives our user base in the industrial center a level of protection from the concerns and restrictions generated by a residential community. However, this does not hamper the access to a significant, talented labor pool. Due to the unique location of TRI Center, situated between the Reno / Sparks market and the city of Fernley, there is an excess of affordable housing and access to a local work force.
TRI Center is located in the logistics hub of the west. From this region it is a one-day truck shipping time to California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, and Washington by utilizing services from companies like UPS, FedEx, and the newest addition to the list, On-Trac, who will deliver overnight shipping to almost all of these states at ground rates. The northern Nevada market is no stranger to distribution-based companies due to its strategic location in the west. TRI Center hosts companies like Walmart, PPG, Petsmart, 1-800-diapers, Toys-R-Us, Tire Rack, US Ordinance and GSI, to name a few.
TRI Center is tied into the US transportation network through I-80 and Union Pacific main line rail. I-80 provides direct access to California’s I-5 corridor and eastbound through Salt Lake City, Omaha, and eventually New York. This western rail infrastructure source is Union Pacific rail. The UP mainline was deregulated in the late 90s, allowing service by third-party rail service providers such as BNSF, to ensure competitive rates for all park rail users.
