LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) broke ground Wednesday on its new headquarters building near Rainbow Boulevard and the 215 Beltway in the southwest part of Las Vegas.
GLVAR hosted a Dec. 14 groundbreaking event on the site for local dignitaries, REALTORS® and association staff members featuring remarks from Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak, 2016 GLVAR President Scott Beaudry, 2016 President-elect David J. Tina and project manager Mike Shohet, of Jones Lang LaSalle.
“On behalf of Clark County and all my constituents in this part of town, I’m looking forward to welcoming GLVAR to the neighborhood,” said Sisolak, whose commission district includes GLVAR’s new location. “This beautiful and conveniently located building will be a great addition to this rapidly developing area. I think GLVAR’s new home will be as good for this area as it will be for GLVAR and its nearly 13,000 members.”
Beaudry said GLVAR is building the state-of-the-art new facility to better serve its growing membership.
“Besides being more conveniently located for most of our members, this new building will enable us to better serve local REALTORS® in a variety of ways,” Beaudry said. “We’ve been in our current building for more than 30 years. Basically we’ve outgrown the space and needed a new facility that has new and improved educational areas with state-of-the art technology.”
GLVAR plans to move into the new building by late 2017, he added. It will be moving from its current 27,000-square-foot building at 1750 E. Sahara Avenue – which is now being listed for sale at $3.8 million.
Tina said the new building represents “a major investment” for GLVAR that will serve the association well for years to come.
GLVAR’s new headquarters on South Rainbow Boulevard, just south of Post Road and north of Sunset Road, will have nearly 40,000 square feet of space. It will feature classrooms large enough to seat 300 members. The two-story facility on 4.25 acres will be an energy-efficient, concrete tilt-up building with about 380 parking spaces.
Tina said GLVAR will offer space in the building to other organizations to use for meetings, classes and events, potentially generating additional revenue for the association.
