Affordable housing project has retail, office space and ‘maker space’ in ‘Mixed-Use Microbusiness Park’

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A planned affordable housing project that’s set to break ground in 2024 will have retail, office space and “maker space” in a concept called a “Mixed-Use Microbusiness Park.”

“We noticed that there was a housing affordability crisis going on within the County. And we also knew that this is an area that needed an increase of affordable workforce housing, high quality of workforce housing. We thought, what better way to build and pour into the community than by combining opportunities for residential, workforce, affordable housing, as well as providing office or retail spaces for the entrepreneurs to develop their businesses,” said Commissioner William McCurdy II of District D of the Clark County Commission.

“It’s similar to watch what you might see in Downtown Las Vegas, but instead, you’re going to see that right here, beyond the neon of Downtown, right here on the West Side,” McCurdy said.

McCurdy said the goal is to help entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners learn their craft and launch their own business.
