The Loop Reno Unveils Plans for South Meadows Facility
Southern Reno real estate has grown tremendously over the last few years. The residential makeup seems split down the middle between families with children and adults without. The area needs facilities that cater to both. Developers hope The Loop Reno fits the bill.
The Loop Reno
Several developers got together to create a centralized space where families and adults could equally enjoy a night out. That’s where The Loop Reno came into play. Situated on 20 acres at South Meadows and Double Diamond Pkwy, The Loop Reno offers up several entertainment options. First up, Rounders appeals to the family crowd. Much in the vein of the popular Dave and Busters chain, Rounders offers higher-end family-friendly food than fast food restaurants offer. In addition to its restaurant and arcade, Rounders features a bowling alley, a roller rink, and an obstacle course.
Next, Zeppelin’s provides an adult atmosphere for date nights or just hanging out with friends. You must be 21 to enter. Menu items include oysters, appetizers, and drinks (both with and without alcohol). The buildings containing both restaurants are in their final phases of construction. They plan on opening early next year.
The Loop Reno Recreation Facilities
Sportsdome Reno does good business in the northeast part of town. It’s been so good, in fact, that they feel it necessary to expand into the southern Reno market. Later on in 2018, they plan on opening up a 120,000 square foot facility called Sportsdome XL. Here, patrons can play everything from flag football to lacrosse as well as basketball, badminton, volleyball and more. An official opening date will be announced once it gets closer to completion.
Who’s Funding The Loop Reno?
You may be wondering who’s footing the $30 million bill for all this construction? Our Parks and Recreation Department already feels the pinch to provide more recreational opportunities to Reno citizens. Thankfully, developers didn’t ask the City for grants, rebates or even tax incentives. Instead, they relied on private investing and their own money. That’s right. All this will be provided for public use without any out-of-pocket expense for construction. And, these new businesses provide even more jobs to the area.
Currently, Rounders, Zeppelin and the Sportsdome XL are the only big businesses scheduled to open at The Loop Reno in 2018. However, more buildings and businesses will be added over the next few years. Sounds to me like a welcome addition to our Reno lifestyle as well as the local economy.
