Midtown Sticks Construction Continues

Posted: Updated:
Midtown Sticks is changing the look of Virginia and Thoma Streets, one phase at a time. 

Two Chicks, Eatery at Midtown and Chuy's Mexican Restaurant already call Midtown Sticks home, but now, there will soon be more retail space. 

Bernie and Tim Carter, developers of the project cannot say which retailers are moving in. 

“The idea is to fill each space before we build additional space,” said Bernie Carter. “We try to make all of the tenants complimentary, and not competitive." 

Each phase of construction adds about 5,000 additional square feet. 

Parking, of course, remains an issue. There are about 40 parking spaces in the immediate area. 

Despite the issue, projects like this one, and others in Midtown Reno, are improving the feel and sense of security in the area. 

“If it's 8 o'clock on a Saturday night, we can walk anywhere we want and it's okay,” said Tim Carter. “That's a big difference from 5, 6, 7 years ago." 

Construction on phase 3 will wrap up early summer.
