Summerlin office building developer signs law firm as first tenant

Updated October 25, 2017 - 2:03 pm

Summerlin’s developer has signed its first tenant for an office building under construction near Red Rock Resort.

The Howard Hughes Corp. announced Wednesday that law firm Greenberg Traurig would occupy roughly 16,000 square feet on the sixth floor of the suburban Las Vegas building.

It did not disclose the terms of the lease.

Greenberg Traurig, which has 38 locations, founded its Las Vegas office in 2005. The firm is based locally in the Hughes Center office park east of the Strip.

The law firm confirmed the Summerlin lease but said the terms are confidential. It also said it’s moving its local office to the new building.

“We were looking for an office space and location that could evolve with us and our clients,” shareholder Jodi Goodheart of the Las Vegas office said in a statement.

Howard Hughes’ new six-story building is at the southeast corner of Pavilion Center and Griffith Peak drives, near the Vegas Golden Knights’ practice facility, City National Arena.

The Dallas-based developer broke ground on the office project in the second quarter and expects to finish by next summer. The office building is slated to include a three-story parking garage.

As part of its announcement Wednesday, Howard Hughes also said that its nine-story office building in the Downtown Summerlin open-air mall is 94 percent leased.
