Commercial Construction Market Improving

Tivoli Village October 2013

LAS VEGAS -- The predictions are out and 2014 looks like a promising year for commercial construction in Las Vegas.

2013 saw a number of groundbreakings, and the new year may bring even more. Experts say hot spots like the area in and around Summerlin, and also Green Valley, have seen less vacancies and more restaurants, offices and shops.

Some business leaders say the slow and steady growth in commercial construction is a turning point for the whole Las Vegas economy.

Leaders of CBRE, a major real estate investment firm, say no income tax, an abundant workforce, and an improving economy are propelling many big projects in the valley.

"In good locations, space is starting to get a little scarce, in inner city there is still a high vacancy rate," Senior Vice-President of CBRE Office Properties Randy Broadhead said.

Reviewer: Echo & Rig Shows Promise

Restaurant reviewer says there are lot of good things about one of Tivoli Village's hottest restaurants, but improvements need to be made.

We were really looking forward to Echo & Rig. We’d heard good things and liked the concept of a restaurant and butcher shop as siblings. We also knew it was the hottest thing to hit Tivoli Village lately and so made sure to call for a reservation.
