Land Development

Current Projects

There are many benefits to leasing ground with the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA), including tax breaks and no land financing or acquisition costs. RTAA offers ground leases allowing for reduced capital expenditures for land with long-term lease terms allowing for full amortization of your building investment. Our two distinct airports can meet aviation-related airside access site selection requirements as well as distribution and warehousing site selection criteria. With the goal of providing companies with the best facility location and business environment possible, we work with each company to exhaust every opportunity to earn their business.
