Starbuck’s new endeavor will be in the midst of an architecturally chic district. Aligning with architectural elements in the neighborhood was paramount to Starbucks. The solution is a center piece creation, a 2,500 SF, modern steel structure design, featuring a pedestrian plaza, and accented with an open interior design to maximize ambience creating a tranquil café atmosphere. This will allow Starbucks to retain its visual uniqueness and project internal and external aesthetics.
The coffee shop will be concentrated within a residential complex of condominiums, and residential units adjacent to 2.5 million SF of government and professional office area, all within a 10-block radius.
70% of Starbucks profits are generated from drive-thru sales according to officials. City planners speculate that this drive-thru is probably going to be the last of its kind in the foreseeable future.
There is proposed construction of a rapid transit system, Light Rail, along the Maryland Parkway corridor, connecting with McCarran International Airport, and other major locales in downtown Las Vegas.
Speculation of an operational Light Rail system is circa 2022. A consensus among officials, is that Nevada’s modes of transportation are inferior to other Western states. This sets in motion extensive planning after a visit to Denver, to examine the infrastructure of the City’s successful light rail system.
A gathering of lawmakers, officials, constructions groups, Sunrise Hospital and others were all in unison that this option needs to be explored. The deadline to allow the vote onto the floor or die in its tracks, is May 19, 2017.
What distinguishes one Metropolis from another?
For Las Vegas, I’m apt to say Superlative!
A gleaming gem whose facets are mesmerizing, attracting
intellectuals, innovators, entertainers, physicians, technology,
entrepreneurs, and yes, tourists from all over the world.
Few cities throughout time have successfully diversified their economies to benefit and represent the broad cross-section of its citizens as Las Vegas.
The economic downturn of 2008 was the catalyst for this superlative economic transformation and diversification of the Las Vegas economy.
A consensus amongst business leaders, within moderate convention meetings is that world changing paths can emanate from Las Vegas.
The 2020 NFL season kick-off will debut the $1.9B Las Vegas Raiders stadium, a magnificent 65,000 seat facility situated on 62 acres, acquired for $77.5 million, near the Mandalay Bay Resort.

The “Corridor of Hope”, a 15 million court yard complex for the homeless population of Las Vegas, which was scheduled to open and accommodate the homeless by March 2018, has been delayed for two weeks. This will allow time for additional outreach to local service providers, according to the City Manager. May 17, is the expected date for council reconsideration of the initiative.
The Aerodrome, LLC company has unveiled its design plans for the first-of-its-kind, operational commercial drone airport! Aerodrome has signed a 20-year lease with Boulder City and plans to construct 860,000 SF of permanent structures including a 15,000 SF terminal building, a research and development facility, warehouse, hangar, office, and training facilities on 50 acres located 28 miles from the Strip, in Boulder City. Eldorado Droneport is privately owned, but will be open to the public, offering training for unmanned aircraft systems, provide Federal Aviation Administration repairman, pilot certification and testing, and a variety of educational, research and development service. The futuristic geometric terminal structure is designed to be lightweight, made with a durable fabric (similar to Bedouin tents), and hover over the sand, resembling a “white cloud”. Aerodrome has a tentative completion date of mid-2018 and plans to make Eldorado Droneport a central hub for drone training for private and public entities, while increasing revenue opportunities for our UAV community.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors approved Phase 2, authorizing a $1.28 billion, 8-month extension of the Las Vegas Convention Center Expansion and Improvement Project. Demolition of the Riviera was the first phase which is 99% complete. Cordell Corp., the builder’s representative, will assist in designing a $1.4 billion, 600,000 SF exhibit hall. They will start to solicit ideas from convention authority staff and customers that book conventions and Trade Shows, for their needs in the construction program, between the middle of February ending in March of 2017. Once the authority board and Gov. Brian Sandoval’s seven-member oversight panel approve the building design, the construction process is proposed to be in place by the end of the year, with the groundbreaking of the new hall by early 2018.
