The $6 million guys: Raiders get big discount on Henderson land


Eric Christian Smith/ AP Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis speaks to the media at the NFL meetings, Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, in Houston.

Associated Stories

Initially, they convinced Nevada legislators to devote the largest public aid in American history towards their brand-new $1.9 billion arena and practice center.

Now the Raiders encouraged the Henderson City board to shave $6.05 million off the $12.1 market price of 55 acres of land to build that practice field and home office near the city’s executive airport.

In both cases, the team’s winning argument in favor of business aid reads the same: The return you gain will be worth the dollars you sow.

Henderson’s council voted unanimously on Tuesday night to move on toward a directed sale of land to the Raiders, a choice that allows city authorities to use a Nevada law permitting no-bid sales at under-market prices when they consider it in the public interest.

“I think this is a huge roi for the investment the city of Henderson is making,” Henderson Mayor Debra March stated before the vote.

The Raiders prepare to invest as much as $75 million to build their head office on the substantial parcel off St. Rose Parkway near the M Resort. The team’s oft-cited spending plan consists of $1.8 billion for its 65,000-seat domed stadium at Interstate 15 and Russell Roadway, and $100 million for its home office. Nevada’s $750 million taxpayer financial investment evolved from those price quotes.

City Councilman John Marz said the schedule of that land for sale by the city needed years of work, starting with scrapped prepare for mixed-use development and stopped working efforts to build houses that would have been too near the executive airport’s flight path. The city worked out land swaps with previous house developers for infill parcels in other Henderson areas to put together that 55-acre parcel within a location of 600 acres slated for workplace and industrial usage.

“We have actually been client with this piece of land,” Marz said. “It’s not like we had to provide it away. We have actually had individuals thinking about it, however not the type of business that we desired there. When the Raiders came knocking on our door, we said this is our golden chance.”

Marz said previous queries would have resulted in storage facilities on the land.

If the sale gets final council approval in February, the Raiders will pay approximately $110,000 per acre for the land. The team in May paid $77.5 million for 62 acres– $1.25 million per acre– to personal owners for its arena site, though that parcel beings in a much more desirable location nearby to the Strip. The preliminary asking price for that land was $100 million.

Asked if the city initially used the discounted rate or if the Raiders asked for the half-price offer, Marz said, “It was a settlement. Obviously they asked, much like everybody else asked.”

That settlement advanced well, Marz stated.

“It was a win-win. The devils are in the details, and so some of those things with their lawyers in California got a bit sticky, however not contentious,” Marz stated. “Overall, we agreed right away exactly what was good for them and exactly what was good for us.”

City staff provided to the council estimates of the facility’s impact on Henderson’s economy. Their presentation competes similar tasks generate about $210 countless tax effect over 10 years as soon as totally constructed. Additional costs on some of the city’s 5,000 hotel rooms by visitors and group clients could generate included profits as well, said Barbra Coffee, the city’s director of financial development/tourism.

March likewise pointed out that Henderson will begin gathering property tax on the land, which it obviously has actually not while owned by the city.

The group prepares to develop 250 nonplaying jobs stationed at the head office, though much of those positions could be filled by staff members transferring from the current Raiders home in Alameda, Calif. Raiders arena consultant Don Webb said the center will have to be completed by spring 2020 to accommodate team personnel preparing for the upcoming NFL season later on that year.

Marz anticipates the facility jump-starting advancement in surrounding areas of west Henderson, long an objective of the city’s economic strategy.

“We’re visiting market go there, we’re visiting home offices there,” Marz stated. “The Raiders are going to be a magnet.”

Webb, who declined to respond to media concerns following the conference, said in his address to the council that the group’s Las Vegas-based arena represents only part of its root structure in the region.

“That’s where the video games will be played, however that won’t be the house of the Raiders,” Webb said. “The home of the Raiders will be in Henderson.”
