Sneak peek at sculptures, park envisioned as Project Neon’s snazzy centerpiece

Final designs are underway for two sculptures that a team of local artists and the Nevada Department of Transportation are hailing as part of a new landmark that will welcome motorists into downtown Las Vegas by 2019.

“We really enjoy the desert landscape and we also obviously like the signs and lights that make Vegas iconic, so we tried to embrace those elements in our artwork,” said Zak Ostrowski, one of three artists from Punch Architecture who designed the $2 million sculptures that will be placed at Charleston Boulevard and Grand Central Parkway.

One known as Hot Dip — a series of steel posts in varying heights and colors — is a 250-foot-long undulating structure that will reach a height of 35 feet in the desert-scaped area at the northwest side of the intersection.

Across the street, a perforated metal mass of purple swirls known as Found Font, about 60 feet long and 25 feet tall, will appear to be emerging from the ground.

Hyperloop One plans full test at North Las Vegas site

Hyperloop One announced Tuesday that it will run a full test within the next three months at Apex in North Las Vegas.

“Bear in mind, the Wright brothers’ plane went for 120 feet (the first time it flew under its own power),” said Nick Earle, the company’s senior vice president of global field operations.

The test within the next three months will cover 500 linear meters, Earle said.

Faraday Future unveils speedy electric car at CES, plans to resume construction in NLV

The spot was selected by North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, who attended the event. Faraday broke ground on its $1.3 billion car factory in North Las Vegas’ Apex Industrial Park in April, and while it stopped construction to focus on building the FF 91, Sampson said Tuesday that he expects to construction to resume soon.

“Our refocusing is to ensure we bring a cutting-edge vehicle to a very dated system and show what we’re capable of,” Wheeler told the Associated Press. “We want to fully fulfill our promise to the state of Nevada” for the 3 million-square-foot facility.”

Faraday spokesman Richard Otto said with the revealing of the FF 91 complete, Faraday will resume construction “in early 2017.”

The 3.4 million-square-foot factory, set on 900 acres, was expected to create 4,500 full-time jobs in Clark County. Faraday was promised $335 million in combined tax and other incentives from Nevada.

Hyperloop One has long-term plans for Apex beyond first test in March

The technological dream of hyperloop transport does not belong solely to Hyperloop One, but the company’s investment in testing at Apex Industrial Park north of the valley makes it the speed merchant of interest in Southern Nevada.

That investment apparently will persist long after what the company hopes is a successful first test of its technology at the end of March.

Nick Earle, Hyperloop One’s senior vice president of global field operations, said Tuesday at a kickoff event for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that the company plans to locate its research and development facility at Apex permanently. Hyperloop One aims to transport freight in its tubes by 2020, with plans to move people at speeds faster than a jumbo jet in 2021.

Tourism officials report record 42.9M Las Vegas visitors in 2016

Las Vegas drew a record number of visitors last year, 42.9 million people, even more than tourism officials had predicted.

The numbers were part of a preliminary tally of 2016 visitor statistics compiled by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and released Tuesday.

Kevin Bagger, director of research for the LVCVA, said his department had forecast that 42.5 million people would visit in 2016, 4 million fewer than the final count. This is the third consecutive year a new visitation record was set. Last year’s number was 1.5 percent higher than 2015’s.

Raiders owner Mark Davis set to meet with NFL’s relocation, stadium committees

Mark Davis, owner of the NFL’s iconic silver-and-black Oakland Raiders, will have a golden opportunity Wednesday in New York to demonstrate to fellow owners that it’s in the best interests of pro football’s most exclusive club to permit him to move his team to Las Vegas.

Davis will appear before the stadium and finance committees in day-long meetings that involve other related league matters. More than half of the NFL’s ownership group will be in New York.

Several of the NFL’s most powerful owners, or their representatives, will listen to Davis update his efforts to move the Raiders out of Oakland for a second time in the last 38 years. Among those owners is Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots who, along with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, has said Las Vegas is a favorable relocation destination.

Steelers owner: Raiders might move to Las Vegas without Adelson investment

The Oakland Raiders might decline Sheldon Adelson’s stadium investment in pursuing relocation to Las Vegas, Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II said Wednesday.

Adelson, chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp., has negotiated for months with Mark Davis, the Raiders’ majority owner and general managing partner, on a stadium lease agreement. They have yet to reach accord. But that hasn’t changed the Raiders’ desire to leave Oakland for Las Vegas.

“I think the Raiders are looking at this potentially going without Mr. Adelson,’’ Rooney, chairman of the league’s stadium committee and one of the NFL’s most influential owners, told reporters in New York after league meetings on relocation and stadium issues.

Raiders: Las Vegas stadium financing secure, with or without Adelson investment

Oakland Raiders executives have told the NFL that Goldman Sachs is committed to financing the team’s proposed domed stadium in Las Vegas with or without an investment from casino executive Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board learned Thursday.

Jeremy Aguero of Applied Analysis, the company serving as staff to the authority, on Thursday provided an update on the Raiders’ relocation efforts after consulting with team officials earlier in the day.

Aguero’s statement to the authority board provided a clearer picture of what the NFL’s stadium and finance committees were told by the Raiders at a Wednesday meeting in New York.

Raiders to file relocation papers to move from Oakland to Vegas

The Raiders will file relocation papers to move from Oakland to Las Vegas, according to sources familiar with their thinking. After a year of planning, debate, and bold action, after many years of a sub-par stadium option in Oakland, the Raiders have made a firm decision on their future.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said "if the (Raiders) decide that they can't make it work in Oakland and they decide that they want to file for relocation, then their window is from when they get eliminated from the playoffs to Feb. 15." They will file before that window closes.

The filing would include a statement explaining the Raiders' decision, then potentially words from Goodell. There would be committee meetings to analyze the move from all sides, then a vote of all the owners. Between the analysis, vetting, and discussion, it's likely it would take about 4-6 weeks.

That would set up a vote of the owners to send the Raiders to Vegas during the late-March league meetings in Arizona -- with 24 votes needing to pass. The other option would be to call a special league meeting, which doesn't appear likely.

Las Vegas’ master-planned communities make steady comeback

Around the Las Vegas Valley, master-planned communities offer housing, parks, retail, schools and other components. And after the economy crashed last decade, these sprawling projects were derailed with practically everything else in the real estate industry.

Among them: Cadence stalled, Summerlin’s developer went bankrupt, Inspirada went bankrupt, Park Highlands went bankrupt twice, and the site of what’s now called Skye Canyon was seized through foreclosure before a single house was built.

Master-planned communities aren’t all roaring with growth today. But with the homebuilding sector revived from its near-death years ago, such projects are back in business.

Proposed budget signals $115M in new investment for Nevada higher education

evada Gov. Brian Sandoval, in his Tuesday night State of the State address, referred to the $115 million in new investment for the Nevada System of Higher Education as “strategic.”

Sandoval’s proposed budget would give UNLV the bulk of the money — $37.4 million — directed toward increasing student enrollment as the state prepares for a growing population and economy. The University of Nevada, Reno would receive $21.3 million for this purpose, and $21.4 million would be directed toward the state’s four community colleges for career and technical education.

In addition, Sandoval’s proposed budget calls for funding UNLV’s School of Medicine beyond its start-up costs, which it received in the 2015 legislative session. The proposal also would provide funding for capacity building projects at all teaching institutions and the Desert Research Institute, as well as, capital improvement projects, including the completion of UNLV’s hotel college, a new engineering building at UNR and deferred maintenance projects.

Oakland Raiders file for relocation to Las Vegas

The Raiders did not want to wait until after the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 to file even though the relocation filing clearly creates a distraction for the league. The Raiders sought expediency because the sooner they filed, the sooner owners can vote on their move. Davis and team President Marc Badain will lead the franchise’s persuasion efforts to ensure they get enough owner support.

The owners can decide to vote at any time but likely will wait until they meet March 26-29 in Phoenix.

The NFL said the application will be reviewed in the coming weeks by the Stadium and Finance Committees.

The Raiders and Adelson are still negotiating those details.

Andy Abboud, vice president of government relations and community affairs for Las Vegas Sands, has represented the Adelson family in stadium planning and financing talks. Abboud said the filing was a key moment in what once was an improbable dream of bringing the NFL to Las Vegas.

“This is another exciting development,” said Abboud, who is in Washington to attend the inauguration of Donald Trump. “It’s really one of the most significant days in this entire process that the Oakland Raiders have filed their relocation papers to move to Las Vegas.

“So, financing is in place, the team has filed the relocation papers. It seems very clear that they’re going to be the Las Vegas Raiders. So we’re excited about the development and we continue to talk with them, but this is one of the final stages of our dream of having an NFL franchise in Las Vegas and we’re very excited about it.”

Officials exploring possibility of new Las Vegas courthouse

Las Vegas city officials are exploring the possibility of a new downtown courthouse, which would give the city’s municipal court a building of its own.

The city is soliciting proposals for a roughly 100,000-square-foot courthouse at a maximum cost of $55 million to house its six judges and more than 200 staff members. The municipal court currently shares space at the downtown Regional Justice Center, also home to Las Vegas Justice Court.
