The Korte Company recently completed the Robert T. Eglet Advocacy Center at 400 S. Seventh Street in Downtown Las Vegas. The $17.5 million French Parliament style building attracted more than 200 attendees at its grand opening. Present were Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Rep. Dina Titus and Carolyn Goodman, the Mayor of Las Vegas.
The three-story 96,875 square foot facility was built above two levels of on-site parking with a 100-vehicle capacity. Office space occupies a little more than 47,600 square feet in the upper levels of the building, which is currently 100 percent occupied and will house the law firms Eglet Wall Christiansen, Vannah & Vannah, and Ralph Schwartz. Robert Lawson Investigations is also a tenant with Pisanelli and Bice relocating from the Hughes Center.
Two years before completion, the office construction project was in jeopardy due to budgetary limitations. However, with a ‘build smart’ approach, The Korte Company reduced the cost more than 23 percent with a number of value-engineered solutions.
