Coffeebar the latest creative industry to move in at the Oddie District


Local coffee landmark, Coffeebar, is the newest innovator to join The Generator, Innovation Collective & TMCC. More than just a coffee company, Coffeebar fuels people & their passions by connecting the community over a great cup of coffee & inspiring ideas, making them a great fit for The Oddie District

Sparks, NV, August 1, 2022 - Metro Reno / Sparks’ next Maker, Retail, Flex-Tech, Food & Beverage and Community Gathering Space—The Oddie District—is thrilled to announce the addition of Coffeebar in its curated mix of innovative service, retail and e-commerce businesses. Coffeebar, shortly in occupancy with a distribution and e-commerce fulfillment center, will ultimately also include production and training facilities and, of course, a Coffeebar Coffee House.

Coffeebar is proud to declare they are more than just fancy latte art. “We are a radically-inclusive Italian café experience, serving everything from your morning espresso to your evening glass of wine. Inspired by the cafe culture in Italy, & our local community, we are dedicated to our region's producers and artisans, and driven by our staff, customers, and community”, said Greg Buchheister, CEO of Coffeebar.

“It is vitally important to us to have the very best coffee in the region as part of our food and beverage offerings at the Oddie District”, said Rob Cord, lead development partner on the project for Foothill Partners. “Coffeebar was voted best local coffee roaster and, as they are the first to admit, the competition was TOUGH!” Cord went on to say, “Coffee and beer are the fuels that bring the Creative Culture together. We are delighted to have Coffeebar join us in the creation of Oddie District’s Maker-driven catalyst for innovation in Sparks. Our focus now turns to our beer merchant.”

Confirmed tenants along with Coffeebar include The Generator, the Innovation Collective and Truckee Meadows Community College’s Theatre Arts Black Box Theater. An additional 20,000 square feet of tenants are in negotiations at the project.

The Oddie District is expected to open Q1 2024. For more information,

Casey Scott

Vice President


As an industrial sales and leasing associate in Northern Nevada, I am happy to apply the skills that I developed as a leading retail associate over the last several years. In my retail role, I harnessed my industry knowledge and provided exceptional value to my clients. My extensive client list includes some of the most prominent owners, tenants, and developers in the area such as Shopoff Realty Investments, ALS Geochemical, and McKenzie Development. I have successfully leased and sold property ranging from small single-tenant suites to large multi-parcel shopping centers.  

Due to the adjusting marketplace post COVID, traditional retailers are adapting and merging with industrial and supply chain opportunities to narrow the gap between manufacturer and consumer. I saw an opportunity to add value to my clients and change my focus to industrial services. My services include industrial landlord and tenant representation and investment sales in which I bring a pragmatic and analytical approach.  

Prior to joining Colliers, I spent nine years in the retail automotive industry where I developed in depth knowledge of the Northern Nevada community as well as the rewards and challenges associated with small business.  

As a former flight instructor and airline pilot I have a keen interest in the integration of complex systems, processes and human factors.  A lifetime of self-discipline, attention to detail, and continuous evaluation helps me realize my client’s overarching business objectives. Delivering the counsel and services necessary for true ‘win-win’ transactions is my goal.
