Forty-two Dickson Realty agents from Reno and Sparks boarded a bus this morning and visited the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center (TRI Center) for a 3 1/2 hour guided tour hosted by developer Lance Gilman. The tour included on-site visits to some of the center’s newest and largest clients, which helped to provide an exclusive insider’s view to the scale and importance of the TRI Center to our state and region.Dickson Realty agents tour TRI Center

“We are so happy to provide this opportunity to our agents. The TRI Center is a significant force in our regional economic and housing recovery”, said Nancy Fennell, President & CEO of Dickson Realty. “We are already beginning to witness the impact of what is projected to be over 50,000 jobs created in Reno, Sparks, and neighboring Fernley, Fallon and cities south of the Center. It is an exciting time to be living here”.

The Tahoe Reno Industrial Center is a remarkable, massive 107,000-acre park that encompasses a developable 30,000 acre industrial complex. It is located in Storey County, Nevada approximately nine miles east of the Reno-Sparks area on the I-80 freeway. The center is a 15-minute drive from the Reno Tahoe International Airport. The main entrances are the Patrick and USA Parkway interchanges off of I-80. Both the Union Pacific Railway and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway service selected areas of the industrial center. Just a few of the TRI Center’s clients include Tesla, Switch, eBay Commerce, Zulily, PPG Pittsburgh Paints, Wal-Mart, and Pet Smart.


TRI Center currently has approximately 15,000 acres in Phase I, Phase II and Phase III zoned for industrial use, with plans of future expansion. This vast park is intended to be a mixed-use, nonresidential development, consisting of a wide range of industrial, office and commercial businesses. There is approximately 11 million SF of industrial space now in use by almost 130 companies. Please reference our maps as they show the general location of TRI Center, its massive size and location relative to the surrounding region.

There are parcel sizes immediately available from 1/2 acre to over 5,000 acres. Your facility can be on a “fast track” schedule because the sites are pre-approved for industrial land use and located in a pro industrial development county.
