Construction on Hub@Oddie, a new multifamily property described as an “adaptive, environmentally-sensitive apartment project,” began in August in the Oddie-Wells corridor, with expected completion in spring 2022.

According to an Oct 7 press release, the project at 1835 Oddie Blvd. will transform the former Renown Health-owned skilled nursing facility on the property into a 58-unit apartment building, which will be a mix of studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and live-work units.

“Residents will have access to first-class amenities while benefiting from workforce/ market-rate rent,” per the release. “Amenities will include a community garden, large courtyards, pet friendly living, a business center, on-site storage and high-speed internet. In addition, there will be on-site laundry, fitness room and dog washing facilities.”

The property will also feature a 2,875-square-foot commercial kitchen, built in partnership with Reno restaurateur Mark Estee, CEO of Local Food Group.

According to the press release, individuals and businesses who rent time in the kitchen — available on an hourly basis — will have access to private lockers, as well as dry, refrigerator and freezer storage.

“This space is ideal for local culinary start-ups, caterers and food truck businesses,” per the release.

Lara Properties LLC are developers on the project, which was designed by Resin Architecture and is being built by Solum Construction.

“The repurposing of the building will reduce the environmental impact and waste of total demolition by keeping most major structural components and systems intact,” according to the release. “This will not only result in less noise, waste, and traffic disturbances, but a faster timeline and reduced overall cost.”

According to Lara Properties, the development will benefit from the Regional Transportation Commission’s scheduled $35 million restoration efforts along the Oddie-Wells corridor.

According to the Washoe County Recorder’s Office, Renown Health sold the property in January 2021 for $200,000 to 1835 Oddie Blvd Partners LLC.

Renown had previously acquired the building originally built in 1977 for $2.6 million in 2013.
