RESEARCH PARK ADDRESS

DRI Research Parks, Ltd
2215 Raggio Parkway
Reno, NV 89512

Located in the hills overlooking downtown Reno, the DRI Research Park is a 328 acre site located approximately six miles north of the Reno Tahoe International Airport.  The Research Park’s prime amenity is its adjacency to the Desert Research Institute (DRI), Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC), and specialized facilities of the University of Nevada, Reno.

The Research Park provides tenants with a unique competitive advantage of access to world-renowned environmental research faculty and other park tenants including the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Collaboration with DRI also provides tenants with a broad base of federal research funding sources, unique laboratories and facilities and a commitment to partner with companies in the sectors of Environmental Science, Clean Tech, Life Science, and Advanced Computing & Modeling.
