Henderson’s Inspiring Growth
As one of the Nation’s fastest growing cities, Henderson is quickly becoming “A Place to Call Home” (which also happens to be the city’s slogan) to a number of new residents. From the Water Street District in Downtown Henderson, to Union Village, and Ascaya to West Henderson, every corner of the city is experiencing rapid growth. With over 800 new residents a month, Henderson is not only adding more housing, but more retail, office, medical, and other city services. “We’re really looking at how we can bring quality growth, and we’re working with our community and our businesses to ensure we maintain the quality of life our residents have come to appreciate and know,” said Debra March at her 2019 State of the City address.
Here’s just a snapshot of the growth taking place in Henderson:
Water Street District in Downtown Henderson – Starting with its birth during the industrialization period to support World War II efforts to the city it has become today, this area has seen a lot of growth through the years. Home to City Hall, and a number of small businesses (many of which have been there for decades), the Water Street District is going through a massive redevelopment, while keeping that small town charm. From events like “Last Friday”, which is an event featuring food, drinks, and entertainment that takes place on the last Friday of the month, to a weekly Farmers Market, it’s hard to believe that your just minutes from the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. With the construction of the new Vegas Golden Knights community ice rinks, and a number of new dining options, these will just be more great additions to an already changing downtown.
Union Village – This 155-acre, $1.2 billion development is already home to Henderson Hospital, and and other medical offices, but that is just the beginning. The vision of Union Village is a place where you can live, work, and play – all based on health and wellness. Still to come, a 14,000 square foot dialysis clinic, a memory and dementia care “village”, a hotel, condominium units, restaurants, and other retail spaces. Also part of the plan is a 5-acre park, which will include a 50,000 square foot wellness center that will include a full health and well-being experience. “To have the first integrated health care village in the nation speaks to our health care priorities in the City of Henderson,” said Mayor Debra March, “This is an exciting time in our city, and we look forward to its completion.”
West Henderson – The West Henderson area is experiencing rapid growth, as well as bringing exciting development to this once undeveloped stretch of Henderson. It was only a couple years ago, that West Henderson consisted of a couple master-planned communities, and Henderson Executive Airport. Today, it’s impossible to travel a mile, without seeing some sort of growth taking place. Mixed-use developments like “The Village” and “The Block”, will soon be breaking ground, bringing hundreds of thousands of square feet of retail, restaurants, medical, and office space. There are nearly a half dozen projects bringing additional industrial space to the area as well. St. Rose Square, a massive retail center, just opened its first phase at the end of 2019, and has more on the way. One of the most exciting projects taking shape in this area, is the executive offices and practice facility of the future Las Vegas Raiders. Opening next year, this facility is sure to bring even more growth to this already growing area.
So, where does Ascaya fit into all of this? Well, besides experiencing its own growth, including a number of new homes currently under-construction, Ascaya’s location is at the heart of all this development taking place in Henderson. Within a matter of minutes, you can be in Downtown Henderson, Union Village, or West Henderson. Whether you want to dine al fresco at one of the many restaurants at The District, or board your private jet at Henderson Executive Airport, you’re only a short distance from “A Place to Call Home”… Ascaya!
