LAS VEGAS—February 9, 2015 — The Siegel Group Nevada, Inc., The Siegel Group Nevada, Inc., a Real Estate Investment and Management Company, today announced that it had acquired the Nevadan Hotel in Reno, Nevada for $2.7 million. Also acquired was an adjacent retail property controlled by the seller totaling approximately 26,591 square feet.

Built in 1977 and located in the heart of downtown Reno on Virginian Street, the 16-story, 152,000 square foot property contains 182 rooms, two levels of subterranean parking, and a non-restricted gaming license with 21 slot machines currently in operation that will be operated by the Club Cal-Neva under a space lease agreement. First order of business for The Siegel Group which plans to convert the hotel property to a mixed-use development is to begin addressing the substantial years of deferred maintenance that is common with properties of this age and size. Planned upgrades include a new roof, elevators, heating and cooling systems, new flooring throughout the property and upgrades to all rooms and common areas. The Siegel Group’s development plan for the property includes converting the 182 rooms to its signature Siegel Suites business model which provides apartment accommodations with a host of amenities to tenants seeking short and long-term living arrangements with flexible payment options. The 2nd and 3rd floors of the property will be converted to office space while the 1st floor will contain a rental office, gaming and the addition of multiple retail spaces. The company will also be working with a local architect on façade improvements to the property. Beginning immediately the property will be renamed Siegel Suites Nevadan and will mark the brands 5th location in the Reno/Sparks market. In addition to the company’s 27 Siegel Suites locations totaling over 5,500 units throughout Nevada, The Siegel Group owns and operates a sizable commercial real estate portfolio comprised of apartments, hotels, retail, office, industrial and land development. Additionally, planned improvements for the adjacent retail center include converting 2nd floor office space that has been vacant for years to traditional apartment units and façade improvements to the building to modernize and create curb appeal.

Stephen Siegel, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Siegel Group states: “I’m pleased to have added the Nevadan and the adjacent retail structure to our holdings in downtown Reno.
