Barbra Coffee, Henderson’s director of economic advancement and tourist, cannot conceal her enthusiasm for a few of the projects being built in the city.

“It’s not practically the building, it’s about the people, and this is the part I love. This is where you can get included and take ownership of your community, of Henderson, of downtown,” Coffee said Tuesday throughout a networking event at the Wildhorse Nation Club.

Each area in the city is developing in its own way, she stated. Here’s how:

East Henderson

Nevada State College in June will start building on trainee real estate. The 278-bed job is expected to be complete for the fall 2019 semester. In overall, the college has 509 acres of land for potential advancement.

Henderson, already home to more than 25 master-planned communities, will expand by two more tasks– Union Town and Cadence.

Union Town, an incorporated health care community constructed around the Henderson Hospital, will create a smooth transition of care from the health center to specialized domestic communities like the senior assisted living complex, the Health Town.

Cadence is a 2,220-acre master-planned neighborhood that will have 13,000 houses when finished. There are 700 families living there now, Coffee stated. Cadence includes amenities such as a 50-acre-park and a totally free bike sharing program.

“All of that is taking place in east, exactly what I call east Henderson for the purpose of this,” Coffee stated. “That is going to be education central.”

West Henderson

Land extending from St. Rose Parkway to Interstate 15 near the Henderson Executive Airport passage will see development in industrial and commercial advancement, Coffee stated.

“We scheduled this location for employment uses,” Coffee stated. “It can’t take place quickly enough. There’s a lot going on. Everyone wishes to be out here.”

West Henderson is likewise where the Raiders will construct their business workplaces and practice center on 55 acres just recently acquired from the city.

Additionally, Turano Baking Co., an East Coast household pastry shop, will open in March near the Henderson Executive Airport and expects developing 100 jobs, Coffee said.

Downtown Henderson and Water Street

Water Street in downtown is positioning itself as a center for young experts and entrepreneurs, Coffee stated.

Co-Operate, a shared workplace, just recently opened at the Henderson Company Resource Center to supply affordable office space for start-up business, small companies or professionals fulfilling customers. The shared area begins at $30 a day for drop-ins or $200 to $300 for a regular monthly membership for an assigned work environment.

“I really am excited about this collective workspace, so if you don’t have a desk there yet and you have been working out of your garage, you have to come down to Water Street,” Coffee stated.

Also downtown, Public Functions Coffee describes itself as “a key element of a bigger effort to stimulate the redevelopment of Water Street. It is a community-minded coffee bar where individuals can satisfy, consume, and eat.”
