The “Echelon at Centennial Hills” is a bite-sized institutional-quality asset in the desirable “Centennial Hills” submarket in Las Vegas. The asset combines oversized units (1,829 SF average), quality podium construction, structured parking, and a top-tier amenity base. The property is poised to take advantage of the accelerating trends of the northwest Vegas market through improved operations and a possible value-add program.
Location and asset type make this a unique offering, as Centennial Hills is the newest area of expansion in Las Vegas. The Centennial Hills location already rivals the established “Green Valley” submarket in the southeast. Single family developers, multifamily developers, and even high-end retail shops are thriving in the northwest. New multifamily projects are thriving, and luxury developers have plans to take advantage of the desirable demographics in the near future; the Calida group has plans to build an “Elysian” branded asset at the former “Great Mall of Las Vegas” location.
