Sansone Companies moves on from Boulevard Mall after successful transformation

Sansone Companies lets future investors take Boulevard Mall to the next level

Las Vegas, NV (July 25, 2019) – After five years of transforming the Boulevard Mall and changing the landscape of the services provided, Sansone Companies, a residential and commercial property development and management company, feels that it is now time to “move on” and let future investors take the mall to the next level.

In 2013, Roland Sansone, president and founder of Sansone Companies, took a huge risk and purchased the failing Boulevard Mall for $54.5 million. Sansone’s vision for the property was inspired by the community surrounding the Boulevard Mall. He didn’t want to see a piece of Las Vegas history torn down. Instead, Sansone decided to turn around the property with one primary goal, to provide jobs for the Las Vegas valley.

“This project wasn’t about profit; it was about changing lives. Transforming the Boulevard Mall has provided nearly 4.000 jobs over the course of five years. There’s nothing more gratifying than knowing that Sansone Companies took part in changing people’s lives in our community,” said Sansone.

Sansone Companies’ vision to redevelop the mall into entertainment, dining, retail and office space positively impacted the retail landscape along the Maryland Parkway corridor from University of Nevada, Las Vegas to Sunrise Hospital. The Boulevard Mall now houses one of the largest and most profitable Goodwill stores in the valley, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Insurance now resides in the former Macy’s building and there are many options for retail, dining and family fun experiences such as John’s Incredible Pizza, Sea Quest Aquarium and Galaxy Theaters.

“I came in with a vision to transform and stabilize the Boulevard Mall, and we successfully did just that. My sons Devon, Miles, Neil and myself were able to take the foundation of this shuttered property and turn it into a place where families can come and enjoy,” said Sansone.

Sansone Companies’ innovative and forward-thinking ambition to revitalize the Boulevard Mall will leave a long-lasting positive impact for the Las Vegas community and future investors.

Always focused on redevelopment in Las Vegas, Roland Sansone commented recently on the Downtown Container Park. “The Las Vegas Downtown Container Park was a great Idea of redevelopment and it has helped revitalize the downtown area. The open air shopping area, restaurants and the kids play area provides a totally different experience than the Las Vegas Boulevard Mall.” The kids area has a 30 foot slide and a water area in the middle of the park. This unique spot is located just blocks away from Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard. This is not far from the Fremont Street Experience, which has also recently been revitalized.
