What Work Project are you Excited about in the Next Few Months?
We are very excited about our two new projects in North Las Vegas. Tropical 4 is a 246,000 square foot speculative industrial building that will deliver in May. Vantage North is a 300-acre industrial park that can yield over 4.5 million square feet. Infrastructure construction on Vantage North will begin in November, and we are already seeing interest from prospective tenants.
I would eat dinner with Darth Vader and have a Double Double combo at In-N-Out. He can’t eat with that mask on, so it would torture him.
If you had to live in Another Country for a Year, Which would you Choose and Why?
I would live on the coast of Montenegro. I’ve never been, and I hear it’s amazing.
