Modern Home Builder - Winter 2016 - Volume 2 - 125
Developers are working to ensure downtown
Las Vegas has the amenities needed to live,
work and play.
The Las Vegas Strip is well known for its lights and glamour, but area
residents and visitors know that nearby Fremont Street has its own set
of charms in downtown Las Vegas (DTLV). In fact, developers are seeing all the potential in the area, demonstrated by the Wolff Company's
partnership with 901 Fremont LLC, an affiliate of Downtown Project,
which has plans to develop a groundbreaking mixed-use multifamily
project on 1.3 acres in DTLV. The proposed five-story, podium-style
building, currently being dubbed Fremont & 9th, will include 231 units
as well as 15,000 square feet of retail space along Fremont Street. It will
be the first of its kind in the emerging Fremont East area, which is being
revitalized with the help of many investments and initiatives by Downtown Project and its founder, Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos.com Inc.
"We're happy to welcome The Wolff Company to downtown, and
believe this development is an important addition to Fremont Street
because there currently isn't anything like it available in the area," Hsieh
says. "Increasing the residential density is key to making the Fremont
East area a truly vibrant place to live, work, and play. We're excited to
see this development for those who want to live downtown."
Located at the intersection of 9th and Fremont Streets, the property will be within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars and
other retailers and small businesses in the urban DTLV district. It will
be adjacent to The Hydrant Club, the largest dog park in DTLV, and a
five-minute walk to the Fremont Street Experience. Residents also will
have convenient access to U.S. Highway 95 and Interstate 15, and will
be just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
"The population of Downtown Las Vegas is growing and evolving,
yet there is a lack of rental housing options to meet the area's demand,"
says Nate Carlson, vice president of development for The Wolff Company. "Fremont & 9th will change the face of DTLV living, offering
residents a stylish home with unprecedented access to entertainment,
retail and hospitality."
Fremont & 9th is being designed to take full advantage of its location
with a suite of amenities that promote a live, work, play lifestyle. Urban
art and style will be found throughout the property from its hip lounge
and resort-style pool to the premium unit finishes such as quartz countertops, under-mounted sinks and custom tile backsplashes. The Korte
Company, based in Las Vegas, has been selected as the general contractor. Construction on Fremont & 9th is scheduled to start by March. )
