Several local businesses partnered recently to build an outdoor pavilion and amenities for residents at Village on Sage Street.

Built in 2019 on a four-acre, city-of-Reno-donated property at the corner of 4th and Sage streets, Village on Sage Street consists of 216 single-occupancy dorm units for people earning less than 60% of the area median income. Rent is roughly $400 per month.

The community is operated by the Community Housing Land Trust, 
an affordable housing arm of the nonprofit Community Foundation of Northern Nevada (CFNN).

Clark/Sullivan Construction built the large pavilion in the village complex near the outdoor fireplace as a gift to the community, according to an April 26 press release from the foundation.

The Nevada Chapter AGC (Associated General Contractors) helped procure material donations from local construction and supply companies. MBA Architecture created and contributed the plans, and Forbes-Linchpin Engineering donated services.

The following businesses generously contributed building materials: Truckee Tahoe Lumber, D & D Roofing, Titan Construction Supply, American Ready Mix, Morgan Construction, A-1 Steel and Western Partitions, Inc.

CFNN furnished picnic tables for the project, and it also plans to add colorful sun sails over the concrete patio adjacent to the pavilion.

According to the release, 328 people have moved into Village on Sage Street since opening in the summer of 2019. One hundred forty people have moved out. The average length of stay for those who have moved out is 4.5 months.

“This community is considered a bridge housing option, but there is no time limit on how long people can stay at the Village on Sage Street,” per the release.
