LAS VEGAS-Shangri-La Construction and Thompson National Properties opened its first joint development project, a retrofitted class A office building in Las Vegas is the first in the state of Nevada to be awarded Gold certification under the USGBC’s LEED rating system. The 1960s office building, located at 302 E. Carson Ave. in downtown Las Vegas, was the centerpiece at a grand opening event held Wednesday with special guests former Pres. Bill Clinton; Mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman; and Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO of the USGBC.

The formerly obsolete 1960s-vintage building “now stands as a beacon for sustainable property redevelopment in the downtown Las Vegas revitalization zone,” according to a prepared statement. Efficiency upgrades incorporated as part of the retrofit across eleven floors and 162,000 rentable square feet are projected to decrease building energy use by more than 30% and water consumption by 40%, which will reduce and stabilize long-term operating costs.
