Village on Sage Street Grand Opening

Village at Sage Street Grand Opening

A well-attended ceremony yesterday marked the official opening of Village at Sage Street, a 224 dorm style property that adds to Reno's affordable housing options. Rent for the units will be $400 a month. Units can be rented month to month and a $400 security deposit is required. Rooms are furnished and include a bed, wardrobe, television and desk. Wifi is available at hot-spots in shared space throughout the property. Community amenities include recreation room with exercise equipment, business services, laundry room, dining hall with food available for purchase from Rounds Bakery, meeting rooms and outdoor gathering area. The property is a gated community and will have 24 hour staffing.

As of late August 2019 applications were still being taken. To apply please go to the Sage Street website and scroll down to the red "Apply Now" button and click it.

Village at Sage Street is a collaborative effort between Community Foundation of Western Nevada, City of Reno, Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada and other donors. The Nevada Housing Division inspected and processed the modular units which were previously used as housing for miners in Wyoming. Because of the initial donations and the care taken to keep building costs low, Village at Sage Street plans to be self-sustaining. The rent from the property will cover ongoing costs with no further subsidies needed. The project is being managed by Volunteers of America.
