Retail plaza groundbreaking planned in Las Vegas’ Chinatown

Updated August 3, 2017 - 10:32 pm

Developers plan to break ground Friday on a new retail plaza in Las Vegas’ Chinatown area.

The 4.3-acre, 80,000-square-foot center, called Shanghai Plaza, is slated to be built on Spring Mountain Road at Arville Street, project representative Andy Wong said.

Plans call for four two-story buildings and a traditional Shanghai architectural style, marketing materials say.

It will be developed by Shanghai Huide Real Estate CEO Wai Tak Ng, who has built high-rise condos and office and industrial projects and was awarded as a “construction hero” by the Shanghai government, according to the marketing materials.

Records indicate his group bought the project site in 2015 for $4.75 million.

The groundbreaking will include lion dancers, Wong said.
