LAS VEGAS – Southwest Las Vegas will be the home to a massive new mixed-use project, combining business, retail, entertainment, and food all in one package, dubbed the “UnCommons.”
Slated to be constructed off of Durango Drive and the 215, UnCommons – once completed – will essentially be a mini-city within a city, a space where the people working there will have all their needs and amenities right at their fingertips. The point of the project, reports say, is to attract businesses and their workers to the valley to provide support once they’re there.
Developers of the UnCommons project have extensively studied similar set-ups in other states and will be one-of-a-kind in Southern Nevada, designed from the ground-up as a “Town Square” of sorts to cater to the needs of the tenants who live and work in this area. It will include various exercise studio and relaxation options, numerous food, shopping, and entertainment options, all within walking distance of both an employee’s place of work and their luxury apartment complex.
Initial plans for the project call for 150,000 square-feet of office space in conjunction with restaurants, shopping establishments, several parking garages, and 875 apartments. Developers have noted that they have had preliminary talks with several business tenants – both in Nevada and beyond – in regards to taking up space at the UnCommons facility.
Phase one of the UnCommons project – currently budgeted at approximately $400 million – is set to break ground in 2020, and as long as there are no unexpected issues, completion of construction is expected by the middle of 2021. Additional phases of the project are expected to be announced in the near future, but will likely consist of an expansion of phase one, with more apartments, retail, and business space added to the existing concept based on initial response.
The development is expected to be a boon for local area residents as well, who will be able to access the conveniently-located public retail and entertainment options built within rather than having to commute to farther areas such as Henderson for a afternoon or evening out. The project is also expected to have an impact on the cost of local homes for sale as well as traffic in the region – both which are expected to rise as a result – however, many see the positives of the UnCommons to outweigh the negatives.
