Reno Developer to Develop on S. Las Vegas Blvd.

So many things happening S. of the M on Las Vegas BLVD. 

Some great news for City of Henderson!  With Raiders practice facility, the new hangers at Henderson Executive Airport and developments South of St. Rose and Laws Vegas Blvd. 

A Reno developer has drawn up plans for a big warehouse complex in a fast-growing area of Southern Nevada.

Dermody Properties wants to build a 52.6-acre industrial park just south of Volunteer Boulevard near Henderson Executive Airport, according to city records.

The west Henderson project would have four buildings totaling 868,205 square feet, plans show, all on a site that just last year was earmarked for hundreds of houses and apartments.

Located at the southern tip of the Las Vegas Valley, the west Henderson area has become a hot spot for development the past few years. Investors have built, started constructing or drawn up plans for dozens of projects, including apartment complexes, housing tracts, the Raiders’ practice facility and — an especially popular option — warehouses.

Dermody partner John Ramous, who oversees Nevada operations, said in an email Thursday that the company does not have “any information to discuss on this topic at this point.”

The project scompany filed plans to team with another developer on a project there featuring 290 single-family houses and 240 apartments, records show.

Canarelli declined to say whether he is selling the site to Dermody, noting that he is under a nondisclosure agreement. But he said the area “has changed so dramatically,” and the industrial complex is a better use for the land than a housing project.

“That property’s time has come,” he said.

Developers have been flooding Southern Nevada with warehouses in recent years, and the west Henderson desert has become a popular spot as other industrial pockets have become more congested. Real estate pros have cited the area’s proximity to Interstate 15, expanding infrastructure and — something any developer needs — available land.

West Henderson also is closer to Southern California than the warehouses of North Las Vegas, improving the odds that inbound truckers can drop off their products and get back before they have to take a rest period.

Panattoni Development Co., for instance, built an industrial facility in west Henderson now occupied by grocery chain Smith’s. It is building an Amazon distribution center and has unveiled plans for an industrial project next to the Raiders’ under-construction headquarters.

Gene Haas, founder of machine tool builder Haas Automation, bought 279 acres near Henderson’s airport last year from the city.

He drew up plans to build more than 4 million square feet of commercial space, including a $327 million manufacturing facility for his companyite is owned by longtime Las Vegas developer Larry Canarelli. Last year, his company.

Construction Workers Save Hummingbird

Would you take the time to save this Hummingbird and her babies?

 

After watching the video I am so grateful that these amazing men took the time to help this hummingbird and her babies! Please use the link to view the video showing how they made her a new home.

 

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The discovery of a hummingbird nest at a downtown apartment project has partially halted construction.

Project Superintendent Mike Vivier says his crew found the nest about a week ago at SHAREDowntown, just as they were getting ready to insulate some pipes in the underground parking garage.

The project is in the Arts District at Colorado Avenue and Main Street.

“There is going to be a lot of fumes in here in a week, less than a week, a couple of days and they would die. So we’re trying to save them,” 

said Vivier.

Vivier said most construction crews would continue working without giving the hummingbird another thought, but he and his team felt compelled to save her and her two tiny eggs.

“She can’t stay because they wouldn’t make it through the process,” said Vivier.

Wildlife experts said the once the eggs hatch, they need their mom and a lot of attention.

“Baby hummingbirds need to eat every fifteen minutes when they are unfeathered and then up to every thirty minutes when they are feathered,” said Wren Blossfeld with the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah.

The team built a small birdhouse just outside the parking garage where the nest is located. They adorned it with a red Hummingbird feeder and red tape. Experts said they are attracted to the color red.

 

Tuesday afternoon, Vivier and his team cut the piece of pipe where the nest was built and placed it inside the new birdhouse.

Wildlife experts said the mother should come back even though the pipe was handled by human hands.

Blue Heron, the Las Vegas-based design-build firm that specializes in custom homes and boutique communities, announced Jan. 29 the launch of a new community coming to the Henderson area.

Dragon Rock will sit beside one of Henderson’s most luxurious and private communities, Dragon Ridge, in the MacDonald Highlands with 50 lots already available.

The firm says that Dragon Rock will emulate CEO Tyler Jones’ “Vegas Modern” approach to design.

“As we bring our Vegas Modern philosophy to new homeowners, we’re not just building their homes; we’re introducing a new, harmonious and energy-focused way of life to our residents, bringing more balance to the spaces they inhabit every day,” Jones said.

Dragon Rock will offer five of Blue Heron’s most popular and most-requested floor plans.

A model home will be available at Dragon Rock for homebuyers to view. Construction on the model begins in the spring.

Blue Heron says that it is looking to take full advantage of the positive housing trend in the LasVegas area, implementing a 2020 Vision that looks to offer buyers with the means to invest in higher-priced properties impeccably designed luxury homes.

Currently, the firm has three other communities around the valley with plans to expand this year to La Jolla, California. Obsidian at the foot of Black Mountain is a double-gated community of 33 homes, which start at $1.8 million.

Vantage at Lake Las Vegas will soon be finished and holds 37 unique homes with starting in the high $800,000s. The model home for the community will open in late spring or early summer of 2020.

The Bluffs is a private community overlooking the valley with 39 Mediterranean Modern homes, 85 percent of which have sold. Three are still available with prices starting at $1.5 million.

Boulder City Parkway Makeover

MSG Sphere Las Vegas

The builder of Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena has been named general contractor of the MSG Sphere performance venue being built just off the Strip.

The Madison Square Garden Company on Monday said Los Angeles-based AECOM, a multinational engineering firm with offices in Las Vegas, was selected to build the high-tech 17,500-seat spherical facility just east of The Venetian.

In addition to the 3-year-old, $375 million T-Mobile Arena, AECOM has built Mercedes-Benz Stadium and State Farm Arena in Atlanta as well as the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York.

“We are making important progress in Las Vegas and are pleased to have added another world-class company to our team,” Jayne McGivern, MSG’s executive vice president of development and construction, said in a statement Monday.

MSG officials did not say how many workers are on the site, but analysts from Hobbs, Ong &Associates say the project will create 3,500 construction jobs and 4,400 permanent jobs once the building opens.

The venue

MSG is promising a fully immersive experience on a large scale. Inside the venue, guests will be surrounded by the largest and highest-resolution LED screen on Earth. More than 160,000 square feet of display surface — equal to three football fields — will wrap up, over and behind the stage and audience, delivering a totally immersive visual environment at a resolution 100 times better than today’s high-definition televisions.

Every guest will hear crystal-clear audio with an advanced acoustics system that features beamforming technology, enabling audio to be directed to specific locations in the bowl at a volume that remains constant, from point of origin to destination. Beamforming technology also enables multiple forms of content to be delivered simultaneously, which means two people sitting 5 feet apart could hear completely different sounds, adding to the possibility for a customized experience. In business presentation environment, that means soundtracks can be beamed to specific areas in different languages without headphones while watching the same presentation.

An infrasound haptic system will use deep vibrations so that guests can “feel” an experience, whether it’s an erupting volcano or a passing motorcycle roaring by.

The MSG Sphere at The Venetian also will ignite the sense of smell through evocative scents designed to transport audiences.

Additionally, the venue will introduce a new architecture for connectivity that will deliver 25 megabits per second for every guest, enabling a broader range of content and greater interaction.

Long-term investment

“AECOM’s experience creating bold, innovative projects makes them the ideal partner for bringing MSG Sphere at The Venetian to life,” she said. “We look forward to working with them to deliver a truly groundbreaking experience for Las Vegas, one that will ultimately redefine the entertainment industry and serve as a long-term investment in the city’s role as a leading international tourist destination.”

MSG is partnering with Las Vegas Sands Corp. on the project, with MSG designing and building the venue and Sands providing the land. The cost of the project has not been disclosed.

The building, planned to be 360 feet tall and 516 feet wide at its broadest point, is being built on 18 acres off Sands Avenue between Manhattan Street and Koval Lane. The new performance venue will be connected to The Venetian and Palazzo at the Sands Expo &Convention Center with a 1,000-foot pedestrian bridge.

After several months of securing permits and passing Clark County reviews, MSG representatives said, site preparation is nearing completion.

AECOM, through a preliminary agreement, has been working on the site since February.

Workers excavated an estimated 110,000 cubic yards of dirt and caliche from the site while drilling 595 augercast piles to secure the building’s foundation. Caliche is a concrete-hard calcium carbonate substance commonly found below the ground at construction sites.

Miles of piles

The piles securing the foundation will be drilled as deep as 75 feet. The 595 piles will result in a total of 51,324.7 feet of drilling — about 9.7 miles. A total of 2.77 million pounds of rebar are being used to reinforce the piles.

Crews also are excavating up to 21.5 feet deep for the basement of the Sphere structure.

“We’re excited to partner with The Madison Square Garden Company to deliver a next-generation venue in the heart of the world’s most celebrated entertainment capital,” said Michael Burke, AECOM’s chairman and CEO, in a statement Monday. “We’re thrilled about this opportunity to leverage our unrivaled construction management capabilities and expertise on the world’s most complex projects to help transform an ambitious vision into a destination venue unlike any that exists today.”

AECOM is a Fortune 500 firm that had revenue of about $20.2 billion during 2018 fiscal year.

It joins architect Populous, a leading design firm, and Rider Levett Bucknall, which will serve as project manager.

A ceremonial groundbreaking with appearances by then-Gov. Brian Sandoval, Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson and Jim Dolan, chairman and CEO of The Madison Square Garden Company, occurred in late September.
