RED is a 40-acre redevelopment mixed-use project in the heart of Reno, offering nearly 1,000 apartment units, a 170-key hotel, a 2 acre park, and approximately 65,000 sf of retail/restaurant space. Wood Rodgers’ role in development of RED has been a true multi-disciplinary effort. It started with Planning services during the concept stage which transitioned to Mapping Actions, Geotechnical Investigations, and Civil & Structural Design. These led to construction services including Testing and Inspection as well as Survey Staking.
Wood Rodgers led the civil design and permitting of this Project, which included three new buildings with a combined footprint of approximately 440,000 SF on approximately 21-acres of land. The project involved installation of approximately a quarter mile of offsite public water main, over a mile of private onsite water and sewer lines, and the re-alignment of a 40-foot-wide drainage channel at the north side of the site. Off to the east in these images, you can see the recently constructed Sysco Foods Expansion which the Wood Rodgers team designed in 2020/2021.
Wood Rodgers provided civil engineering services for this new 53-acre high school serving 2,000 students located within the growing West Roseville development area. Site improvements include 305,000 sf amongst 15 academic, athletics, and administration buildings, a recessed stadium adjoining the gymnasium building, sports fields and parking lots. This was a unique school design that favored an open environment rather than the traditional closed classroom, and one that looked to engage the community.
Wood Rodgers provided comprehensive civil engineering, land planning, and surveying and mapping services for this 3,800-acre master planned community. The development consists of 11,600 residential units, 520-acres of commercial development and 1,400-acres of public and quasi-public land uses. Wood Rodgers prepared the engineering master plans for infrastructure to serve the development area as well as improvements to existing facilities including transportation (roadways, transit, bike ways and pedestrian trails), sanitary sewer, water supply, storm water/drainage and water quality. Current efforts include preparation of mass grading and improvement plans along with large and small lot final maps.
Wood Rodgers was responsible for the land planning and design services for the 1,678-acre, 5,375 dwelling units Fiddyment Farms project located within the West Roseville Specific Plan (originally approved in 2004). This currently developing residential community includes a mix of lot sizes and product types, commercial uses, and an extensive park and open space program designed to preserve significant stands of native oaks, creek corridors and wetlands. Wood Rodgers’ efforts include the processing of a number of Specific Plan Amendments in response to changing market conditions. Wood Rodgers was also responsible for processing the Tentative Subdivision Maps for the Fiddyment Ranch portion of the specific plan.
Rancharrah, a 140-acre ranch in the thriving suburban area of south Reno, holds historical significance as the former residence of Bill Harrah, founder of Harrah’s Hotel/Casino. Wood Rodgers undertook the development of a master plan, envisioning a mixed-use community that harmonizes with the surrounding neighborhoods. Preserving the ranch's core as a special events and equestrian center was paramount. The residential aspect encompasses a diverse mix, including custom and semi-custom homes, condos, and assisted living complexes. The commercial facet, aptly named The Village, spans 16.6-acres and boasts over 125,000 square feet of office, retail, restaurant, spa, medical, and financial institution spaces.
