Gardner Company, UNLV, and the UNLV Research Foundation (UNLV RF), recently announced the groundbreaking of the first innovation building on the new Harry Reid Research and Technology Park campus.
The four-story, 111,000-sf facility will serve as a testing ground for new ideas and businesses that will help to strengthen both the university and the larger community of Southern Nevada. The building marks the beginning of the 122-acre master planned development located near the intersection of Sunset and Durango in Las Vegas.
“Research and economic development activities are on the rise at UNLV, and this building will help us take our efforts to the next level,” said Zachary Miles, UNLV Associate Vice President for Economic Development and Executive Director of the UNLV Research Foundation. “Research parks encourage more direct collaboration between industry and university research than is often possible on college campuses.
Once fully developed, the campus is projected to create up to 25,000 new jobs and $2.6 billion in direct and indirect economic impact for the city. EVA Architects is the architect for the project.
