Press Releases & Announcements / No Comments

LAS VEGAS (August 20, 2009) – Doug Roberts, Senior Vice President/Project Principal for the Las Vegas division of Panattoni Development Company, announced today the company has closed escrow on a 19-acre office and industrial project located near Buffalo and Post roads, approximately one-half mile north of the I-215 and in the Southwest submarket of Las Vegas.

The project consists of eight completed industrial buildings totaling approximately 72,656 square feet, as well as four completed office buildings totaling approximately 25,896 square feet. The office buildings range from 6,150 square feet to 7,446 square feet in size. The project also includes 11 acres of fully improved land for a build-to-suit or sale.

The buildings will be marketed for sale, lease or lease with an option to purchase. The land will be marketed for sale or for build-to-suit. The commercially-zoned, improved property can be subdivided down to 2.5 acres and pricing starts at $100 per square foot.

“This was a very unique opportunity to purchase a well constructed and well located project in the southwest, where there is a minimum of competition for these small industrial buildings at a competitive basis,” Roberts said. “The excess land can be held for future BTS or speculative construction or sold outright given the right offer.”

Colliers International’s Pat Marsh and Eric Molfetta are the listing agents.

Panattoni Development Company (PDC) is a privately held, full service development company founded in 1986 by Carl Panattoni.  During the last five years the firm has averaged nearly 15 million square feet of development annually, one of the most active records in the nation.  PDC has developed and managed industrial, office and retail facilities in more than 100 markets throughout the United States.  The firm is headquartered in Sacramento, California, and maintains more than19 regional offices across the country.  For more information about Panattoni Development Company, visit the company Web site at

Brief Colliers Industry Roundtable Review

Posted by mhurston on July 01, 2009
Press Releases & Announcements / No Comments

The Colliers Industry Roundtable was a full house and then some at the Four Seasons this morning. Tim & Ken Perlman from the Sullivan Group opened with national economic outlook indicating that recovery will lag, national unemployment will more than likely hit 10 maybe 11 percent by the end of 2009, early 2010 but at least he just saved a bunch of money on his car insurance by…

Yes, the talks were a little like laughing during a funeral, especially considering that the overall outlook was dismal at best. The Sullivan Group continued with the residential market and employment crisis. The end result was that assuming City Center is able to produce the visitor volume expected and more jobs are created, the fact remains that the average hotel, gaming and hospitality worker makes a reported income of $25,000 a year. If you assume tips and unreported income can bring them to the $45,000 year level then the housing market could recover because of the low value of homes in the $150,000 range. My question is still how would someone in the $25,000 a year reported income manage to find a loan for $150,000 given the new restrictions from banks on loans? Unfortunately, this is the life we are in and we as a nation will just have to live through it.

John Matt Stater of Colliers closed with a brief outlook on the Commercial Real Estate market, a nail in the coffin of the current economy as we saw a 95 month supply of office sitting empty with Retail and Industrial numbers not too far behind. A much worse outlook than the 4-month supply of residential housing mentioned by the Sullivan Group.

Ultimately the overall theme was that recovery would not happen until people in our city have jobs, unfortunately we will more than likely continue to see job losses through 2010, so don’t expect our markets to begin a recovery until at least early 2013.
