Retailers are expected to be opening stores by mid-autumn at The Village at Double Diamond, a 136,000-squarefoot center at Double R Boulevard and South Meadows Parkway in south Reno.

Work is just under way on the center, which will be anchored by a 56,000-squarefoot Smith’s Supermarket.

Great American Capital and Smith’s are the developers of the 14.65-acre site.

Trammell Crow Co.

is the leasing agent.

Christopher Waizmann, a vice president with Trammell Crow, said about 50 percent of the 42,000 square feet in shop space in the center has been leased, and interest has been strong in six building pads.
