LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS (GLVAR) is moving and recently unveiled plans for its new headquarters building near Rainbow Boulevard and the 215 Beltway in the southwest part of Las Vegas.
“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,” said 2016 GLVAR President Scott Beaudry, a longtime local REALTOR. “We’ve been in our current building (at 1750 E. Sahara Ave.) 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.”
Beaudry said construction is scheduled to start in January 2017 and that GLVAR could move in to its new home as soon as the fall of 2017.
Located just north of Sunset Road on Rainbow Boulevard, near the 215 Beltway, Beaudry indicated GLVAR’s new headquarters will feature classrooms large enough to seat 300 members and will better accommodate member services. The 30,000-square-foot, two-story facility will be constructed as a concrete tilt-up building. He said some 380 parking spaces will surround the building.
It will be built with a focus on Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED). LEED-certified buildings are more energy-efficient, using less water and energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, thereby saving money. Plans call for an open design with multiple windows facing Rainbow Boulevard and outdoor spaces offering a view of the Las Vegas skyline, with multiple inside and outside areas for members to meet and collaborate. GLVAR leaders also intend to make space in the new building available to other organizations to use for meetings, classes and events, potentially generating additional revenue for the association.
