Harsch SVP John Ramous Talks Henderson Development in Las Vegas Business Press
Nov. 29, 2016
Harsch Senior Vice President, Las Vegas Regional Manager John Ramous talks to the Las Vegas Business Press about the recent development boom in Henderson, NV. Reporter Buck Wargo writes, "Commercial development is bouncing back in Henderson, led by a resurgence in industrial projects to meet the needs of employers expanding or relocating to Southern Nevada." He cites Harsch's 240,000-square-foot expansion of Henderson Commerce Center, scheduled for completion in January, as an example of the industrial market's strong performance.

“There’s quite a bit of demand, especially in Henderson,” Ramous said. “The vacancy has gone down dramatically because companies want to be in Henderson.” Half of the new Henderson Commerce Center space is pre-leased, and it will be home to Global Nutrition Group and Catapult Global, both expanding, Henderson-based businesses. “We’re not looking to cater to those looking for 100,000 to 200,000 square feet but catering to smaller users in the marketplace,” Ramous added. “We’re seeing as much expansion from them than the larger distributors coming into town.”

Scott Muelrath, president and CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, said all the signs are “pointing up and heading in the right direction” in looking at the city’s economy. “I think those type of tenants that end up in those facilities provide key jobs for our community,” Muelrath said. “Then there’s the ripple effect of small businesses to service those companies moving in. We’re excited about the ripple effect.”
