LAS VEGAS, NEV., September 22, 2020 – Harsch Investment Properties has started development of the 150,000-square-foot Tropical Speedway Commerce Center in North Las Vegas. This new project brings the company’s total holdings in Las Vegas to 30 properties encompassing more than 10.5 million square feet. Tropical Speedway Commerce Center can accommodate users ranging from 14,875 square feet to 75,000 square feet. Completion is scheduled for second quarter 2021.

Tropical Speedway Commerce Center will feature 28-foot to 32-foot minimum warehouse clear heights, 36 dock-high doors and eight grade-level doors, 221 parking spaces, a 130-foot minimum truck court and ESFR Sprinklers.

JLL’s Jason Simon, Xavier Wasiak and Rob Lujan are overseeing leasing at the property.

“We want to continue to serve the 1,850 tenants in our current Las Vegas portfolio by offering a state-of-the-art industrial building for their expansion, as well as new tenants that want to be part of the Harsch family,” said Jordan Schnitzer, President of Harsch Investment Properties.

“With the evolution of e-commerce, the Las Vegas industrial market continues to see high demand because of its proximity to other Southwest hubs and skilled labor,” said Reed Gottesman, Senior Vice President/Regional Manager, Harsch Investment Properties. “Tropical Speedway Commerce Center is perfect for companies looking for a well-located logistics location in a business-friendly environment.”

Tropical Speedway Commerce Center is ideally located with immediate access to I-15 freeway via Speedway Boulevard and the new Tropical Parkway Interchange.

According to a recent JLL industrial demand report, prior to the pandemic the company attributed as much as 35% of its overall industrial leasing to e-commerce, but now, with expectations for e-commerce to grow 20% in 2020 alone, JLL reports as much as 50% of its leasing activity is already attributed to e-commerce operations this year.

“Las Vegas continues to grow as a strategic location for industrial users,” said Simon. “Tropical Speedway Commerce Center is another example of Harsch delivering Class A product to meet growing demand.”
R&O Construction was selected as the general contractor for the project. The design team is VLMK Engineering + Design and VTN Consulting Engineers.
