New developments in Las Vegas for 2020

What's on the horizon for new growth in Las Vegas for 2020?

From 2018 to 2019, Nevada was 2nd in the country for annual population growth at 1.74%. Out of 30 major metroplitan cities, Las Vegas was third, with a growth factor of 2.2% (almost 50,000 new residents). That's a lot of growth, and a big infrastructure to support.

The city has responded to this challenge with approximately $23.0B  currently invested in major projects within Southern Nevada in 2020. In fact, it's pretty mind-boggling when you look at the number of new additions to retail and office buildings, movie theaters and entertainment venues, huge developments to divisions of the University of Las Vegas, residential and parks, and changes to infrastructure to improve transportation and pedestrian movement. 

This is a summary of some of the feature developments in Las Vegas and Henderson that either began in 2019 or were in the planning stages. The amount of improved resources and options for new jobs is really encouraging. We haven't even included all the casino and hotel development also underway.

Industry & Services
