Old Hertz Office Building Demo

She served us well ! The Airport's Hertz rental car office building was demolished on 10.06.2015. The structure was originally built circa 1980. Reusable items such as windows, doors, lights and fans were donated to the Reno Chapter of "Habitat For Humanity". The building was cleared to make room for the Airport District's new 12,000 square foot commercial "WOB" (Warehouse Office Building) facility. The WOB is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. Hertz is temporarily located in Hangar 2, just east of the Terminal Building.
