Sign-lighting ceremony for Huntridge Center set for Sept. 15
LAS VEGAS – Dapper Companies, headed by homegrown real estate broker and developer J Dapper, announced today the signing of three new tenants as part of his redevelopment of the historic Huntridge neighborhood of Downtown Las Vegas.
Cory Harwell, owner of downtown’s Carson Kitchen and the new Standard & Pour in Henderson, will open a yet-unnamed restaurant in the Huntridge area at 602 S. Maryland Parkway, at the site of the former Mahoney’s Drum Shop. Wingstop, a national chain restaurant offering chicken wings, is set to open at the Huntridge Center.
Dapper also announced another new tenant for one of his properties in the Huntridge area with the signing of Henricksen Butler, a furniture company offering solutions and services for interior and exterior environments throughout Nevada, Utah, Idaho and western Wyoming. Henricksen Butler will be moving from its present location at The Holsum Lofts to 630 S. 11th Street, former home of the Gamblers Book Club.
As announced last November, Dapper invested more than $6 million to buy these three key commercial real estate properties near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Maryland Parkway.
“As a native Las Vegan, I’m proud to part of the renovation of Downtown Las Vegas and restoring a neighborhood in need of commercial and retail growth,” Dapper said. “The ceremony on Sept. 15 we’re calling ‘Light Up the Night’ is not only a celebration to light the new sign at the Huntridge Center, but also an event for the entire community to come together and celebrate the rebirth of this historic neighborhood.”
The community event on Sept. 15, held at the Huntridge Center, will include tasty treats from Fukuburger and Till It’s Gone BBQ food trucks (while supplies last) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and open bar at the Huntridge Tavern (well cocktails and beer) from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The lighting of the Huntridge Center sign will take place at 7:30 p.m. Food and beverage will be provided by the Huntridge Center, with donations to Caridad, an organization striving to humanize the homeless in Downtown Las Vegas by providing customer service-based street outreach.
“Caridad is honored to be chosen as a beneficiary for Dapper Downtown’s Light Up the Night event,” said Meredith Spriggs, founder of Caridad. “This shows that Dapper is not only committed to redeveloping the Huntridge Center, but is also committed to helping end homelessness.”
In addition to the Huntridge Center, overflow parking for the event will be available at the adjacent shopping center and in the Huntridge Theater parking lot across the street. For those wanting to bike to the event, a bike valet will be provided by Crank and Grink, just outside of the Huntridge Pharmacy.
