Roland Sansone on The Future of Las Vegas

Future of Las VegasVegas is still a growing and maturing city that is ready to compete with the large hubs of California, Denver, Arizona and Texas. The Sansone Companies and Roland Sansone feel that to properly compete with those markets, mass transit has to improve, not just within the city, but to and from California as well. One success stories, Portland, where they now have an excellent vehicle ride share and light rail within the city.

What are some other things we should do in Las Vegas to compete?

The entry into Las Vegas (from the Airport) needs to demolish the remaining homes and buildings that are dilapidated and welcome a more inviting image of coming into Las Vegas.

Finally, we need an almost re-imagination of Las Vegas, a place that adults play, but also work as well. A place where highly intellectual individuals can bring their families in an affordable environment (tax, housing and lifestyle) that is a short drive or plane ride to any weekend getaway that they want.

There are already a lot of positives that Las Vegas has positioned itself for:

The SouthWest part of Las Vegas has one of the largest data converging areas in the United States. There is also an Expansion of industrial hubs in Las Vegas, most notably, the COH’s desire for a 55-acre master land project.

Roland Sansone on Commercial Property in Today’s Market

Commercial Property Tips

Here is a Commercial Property tip for those of you in commercial development and looking to buy land right now.

Finding commercial property in today’s market is challenging. Land bankers feel their land is worth 2008 prices, $800k – $1M per acre, but a project does not pencil at those rates. In our business, we call that a Land Banker, someone sucking out the first years of profit for a center.

To clarify, when buying a piece of land at the $800k-$1M range you would need a rental rate of $3.25-3.50 to stabilize the center for permanent financing, and your forecast would take 2-3 years to realize those rental rates to tenants.

So, for all of you commercial land buyers that are looking, if you buy the Land, they are taking your profit spread from your lender for the first several years until you reach a rate that permanent financing reaches a stabilized debt service.

Just take caution and be smart when finding land for your next commercial property.

A Recent Success Story – Regal Movie Theater Center on Eastern

Recently, the Regal Movie Theater Center on Eastern and Pebble was only 50% occupied. Sansone Companies took this complex to 95% occupied, rather quickly. Below explains how they achieved this quick success.

How you ask? Roland and team looked carefully at the project and kept the tactics simple but strategic.

  • The lighting was not adequate at night.
  • The paint was outdated and fading.
  • The fabric awnings needed a refresh.
  • The parking lot needed to be repaired, but those were just the surface of the challenges to tackle for the center.

    Regal Movie Theater Center on Eastern gets an upgrade:

IMG_3675With Sansone’s creative thinking, they removed parking stalls in front of the restaurants and put pavers in to allow for more patio and open seating. Then the team began actively lobbying for good qualified tenants for the center and helped control the mix of tenants to create each vacant space more desirable then the last.

Even at 95% occupied the property is still being fine-tuned to create not only a comfortable shopping experience for customers, but a desirable location for tenant’s to open their business.
