|Equity Office has awarded the office leasing assignment for The HC |Hughes Center®, a 68-acre master-planned office campus in Las Vegas, to CBRE, with a team that includes Darren Lemmon, Amy Lance and Justin Witt. The asset is located on Howard Hughes Pkwy between Flamingo Rd and Sands Ave in close proximity to McCarran International Airport, the Las Vegas Strip, University of Nevada Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Convention Center District.
Established in 1986 and constructed through 2006 with room for more growth, the campus, home to more than 4,500 employees, is well known for its high-end design and construction, beautiful landscaping and panoramic views of The Strip and entire Las Vegas valley afforded by its unmatched, highly coveted central location. The HC is the choice location for major companies such as Wells Fargo Bank, Pinnacle Entertainment, Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Regus, Snell & Wilmer, Deloitte LLP, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Lewis Roca Rothberger Christie, Boyd Gaming and Remark Media.
The amenity-rich site features 1.4 msf of Class A office space, including significant contiguous blocks of available space to accommodate large users and ready-to-move-in spec suites ranging from 1.5k sf to 4k sf. Amenities include a variety of retail options, with 17 well-known restaurant brands, including Del Frisco’s, Lawry’s, Gordon Biersch, Fogo de Chao, Starbucks, Jamba Juice and an on-site café that offers delivery service. Recent developments include two new retail buildings to increase quick service restaurant offerings like Panera, Chipotle, The Habit Burger and new, hip trendy spots like Bandito’s Latin Kitchen and H20 Sushi & Isakaya.
Tenants have access to a complimentary 24/7 fitness center, newly designed on-site marketing center and 24-hour on-site security. In addition, outdoor wifi areas, electric vehicle charging stations and a bike share program have been recently added. A high-end apartment community is planned for a six-acre parcel at the Center to expand its residential offerings.
“Class A office space, especially large swaths of contiguous Class A space, is at a premium in Las Vegas,” said Lemmon. “The HC is extremely attractive to potential users for many reasons, including its incredible location, unparalleled amenities and modern and creative spaces that serve the workforce of today and tomorrow. And with the benefit of a single, unified owner, the leasing process is simplified and streamlined.”
Equity Office, a wholly owned subsidiary of Blackstone, is the owner and manager of The HC |Hughes Center®.
