Noting juhl for architecture that "is one of the most aggressive the downtown community has ever seen," Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman singled out the mid-rise project emerging on the corner of Bonneville Avenue and 4th Street for providing "a place to live, work and play in the downtown area."
The occasion was a Chamber of Commerce luncheon last month, as Goodman addressed a crowd of 600 with a mention that seals the centrality of the live/work lofts' development to the renaissance in retail, entertainment and creative residential growth in the new downtown.
Juhl has reached the 14th story in its construction and will bring 341 residences ranging in design from mid- to high-rise lofts, townhouses, flats, warehouse lofts and penthouses. The development will provide recreational and social facilities and 24,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
John Eisele, juhl sales manager, thanked the mayor for the accolades, acknowledging Goodman and the City Council's role in changing the face of downtown.
"I speak on behalf of the entire juhl team in our desire to thank both you and the City Council for your vision and tenacity in making the downtown renaissance a reality," Eisele said. "We have sold well over 200 homes to buyers who are seeking to live, work and play in the downtown area, which is testament to what you've been sharing with us today. We feel great pride in helping change the face of our city and we could never have realized this opportunity had it not been for your team's foresight and support."
The mixed-use mid-rise is located within a few blocks of the Fremont Street Experience, the Fremont East District and the planned 61-acre Union Park project which will house the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute and Surgical Training Academy, which will teach surgeons throughout the world how to utilize new cutting edge medical technology. Plans for this section of downtown also include the World Jewelry Center, which will offer 150,000 square feet of consumer retail shopping space within a 50-story building.
"With proximity to everything that is new and exciting about downtown Las Vegas, juhl residents will be among the first to take advantage of this wonderful location - the best in urban living," Eisele said.
Priced from the high $300,000s, juhl's one- and two-story floor plans range from 730 to 2,200 square feet. One- and two-bedroom interiors are accented with exposed mechanicals and concrete surfaces, floor-to-ceiling windows and private patio or balcony areas with views onto downtown.
Kitchens are appointed with maple cabinetry, granite slab countertopps, island counters and stainless steel GE appliances. Each residence is equipped with high-speed Internet access, energy-efficient air conditioning and forced air heating. For more information about juhl by CityMark Development, visit juhl-lv.com.
