TEKsystems Opens Office in Downtown Reno

Reno, NV – Basin Street Properties, a prominent Northern California real estate investor and developer, has signed a lease with TEKsystems for 2,966 square feet in its 50 West Liberty building in downtown Reno, Nevada.  TEKsystems is a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services. TEKsystems helps client companies achieve their business and IT goals through staff augmentation, workforce planning and managed services. TEKsystems joins four other companies opening new offices or expanding existing offices downtown, capturing 28,390 square feet of available space over the past three months.

“We’re seeing an interesting shift in the downtown business mix. While legal and financial firms are still a large portion of this growth, we see marketing, health and technical recruiting firms moving in as well. The improving economy and the greatly improved downtown amenities are two strong drivers,” said Par Tolles, President of Basin Street Properties. “The energy and momentum in downtown and midtown is attractive to both workers and businesses right now.  We’re seeing it in office and multi-family demand. A downtown address gives our tenants greater access to their clients as well as satisfying employee demand for easily accessible services.”

TEKsystems has been doing business in Reno for seven years and works with a variety of mid- to large-size companies but has also begun to see more startups requesting their services. “As the largest IT staffing company in the U.S., we have the capabilities to serve everyone from the Fortune 500 to the new software start-up that needs help identifying, screening and deploying IT talent. These companies typically do not have traditional human resources or recruitment departments and find it’s cheaper and more effective to outsource this function rather than create internal positions—and train them—for workloads that may be variable,” said Rachel King, account manager for TEKsystems’ Reno office.

TEKsystems’ Reno team currently has a staff of three account managers who support client companies and five recruiters who work directly with IT professionals. TEKsystems plans to hire two more recruiters in the next 12 months.  “We are excited to move into our new downtown office and to continue the growth that has driven this expansion for us. We started off as a team of three, and we are now a team of eight. It’s fantastic to see that level of growth,” said King.

“We are excited to be part of the growing Reno IT community and the added proximity we’ll have to both the people and organizations we serve,” said King. “With new apartments, restaurants and retail coming in, the downtown and midtown areas are becoming really vibrant.”

“Downtown Reno is quickly developing into a hub for IT, especially with some of the large companies that have earmarked the area for relocation. We are excited to be part of that,” said King.

Basin Street Properties owns and manages 723,646 square feet of Class A office space in Reno and is leading the redevelopment of the Kings Inn.  “We are excited to be a part of the downtown renaissance and look forward to the continued growth and prosperity of Reno,” said Tolles.  Representing Basin Street Properties was Dominic Brunetti and Scott Shanks of Dickson Commercial.  TEKsystems was represented by Charles Wagandt of DTZ.
