A Utah development firm has big plans for the 135 acres of vacant land sitting across from the VA Medical Center in North Las Vegas. Officials from Pacific Group, based out of Salt Lake City, hope to have a multibillion-dollar medical campus completed in the next 10 years.
The project, which could create as many as 10,000 jobs, is expected to feature over 2 million square feet of “laboratory, research, and medical office space,” along with retail, restaurant and hotel buildouts.
“This was something that was a unique opportunity,” said Tony Sansone, chief financial officer for Pacific Group. “We and the city of North Las Vegas have a vision of how we can develop best-in-class medical services for the residents of North Las Vegas, as well as other residents in Southern Nevada. It’s woefully needed.”
Earlier this year, the city agreed to sell the land to a Pacific Group subsidiary, called Legacy AK LLC, according to Nevada Secretary of State records, for more than $36 million.
