The Arch District is named after downtown Reno's most recognizable landmark on Sierra Street. The Arch District is the traditional center of Reno's hotel casinos.
The Montage Reno originally opened as the Sahara Reno hotel-casino complex in 1978. For years it operated as the Flamingo Hilton. In 2008, a project to convert the 602-room hotel-casino complex into a condominium tower was completed.
Completed in 2005, the Reno Events Center is a 7,000-seat multi-purpose arena. It is currently home to the Reno Bighorns of the NBA Development League.
In 2007, a project called ReTRAC lowered the railroad tracks through downtown, eliminating most at-grade crossings through the city's core, while creating a new corridor for infill development and recreation.
The Reno Amtrak Station is served by Amtrak's California Zephyr and Thruway Motorcoach service. The Art Deco depot was built in 1926 by the Southern Pacific Railroad.
Virginia Street is home to Reno's famous arch and most of its downtown casinos.
