50 N Sierra Street

One of the premier condominium towers in downtown Reno, the Palladio is a elegant fusion of classic and modern.  The building’s location right on the north bank of the Truckee river on Sierra and First is definitely classic.  As is the green pitched roof, a tribute to the skyscrapers of the roaring ’20s such as Detroit’s Book Tower or the historic Villa Riviera in Long Beach.  Yet the extensive use of glass gives the tower a modern feel as does it’s interior decor.   This tower was one of the few in downtown Reno to be designed and built for the purpose of being a condo residence, as opposed to being converted from hotel/casino or apartments.  There are 92 units in The Palladio.
