Blockchains LLC New Headquarters
The industrial park hosts Tesla, Google and Switch. And indeed, it is almost sold out after the massive purchase of land by Blockchains LLC.
Lance Gilman, principal and director of the Industrial Park said to Reno Gazette Journal:
“I believe they’re going to showcase to the world everything that the blockchain technology is capable of. Now will they do all the work themselves or work with other developers to house other users? Only time will tell.”
With this deal, there are only 250 acres of the 104,000 available in the industrial park. At the same time, Blockchains LLC is the biggest developer and landowner at Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center. In general, developers buy land to build and suit others, while users buy large blocks of land to build their own facilities.

On the industrial park Tesla has built the ‘Tesla Gigafactory 1,’ which is labeled as the largest self-resilient factory in the world for Li-ion car batteries, powerwalls, and power-pac mass production.
Another important company, Switch opened the ‘TAHOE RENO 1’ back in february 2017. In this way, it became the first data center in the industrial park. The facility of 1.2 million square foot is the largest data center in the world. But this is not all, in the future, the company may be ready to create seven more similar buildings at TRIC.
