RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -- The company behind the largest data center in the United States is planning to add headquarters in Reno. Switch, which is currently building a SUPERNAP data center location in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, plans to expand its headquarters to downtown Reno.

A reliable source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told KOLO 8 News Now the company will soon announce plans to move into the old United States Post Office building at 50 South Virginia Street. The building was recently renovated and has been looking for clients to fill the upper floors.

Switch is currently headquartered in Las Vegas, where it has already opened several SUPERNAP facilities. The source told KOLO 8 that Switch was “adding a Reno headquarters.”

The announcement is expected to be a big win for those in tech circles in the Biggest Little City as it further establishes Reno as the new Silicon Valley.
