SOHO PLAYHOUSE TO BE SOLE OPERATOR OF HUNTRIDGE THEATER
Dapper Cos. has reached a deal with SoHo Playhouse to be the sole operator of the historic Huntridge Theater in downtown Las Vegas. The signing of the lease was completed after the first of the year. In addition to a 1,150-seat multiuse concert hall and 450-seat off-Broadway theatre in the existing building, two additional spaces will be added to the south side of the property for additional venues.
The two additional spaces will be connected to the main theatre via a new interior lobby. A 100-seat cabaret theatre will operate in a building just over 5,300 square feet with a 199-seat 4,800-square-foot theatre (a replicate of their NYC flagship SoHo Playhouse) also being added to the existing property.
Dapper Cos. continues to seek partners to create food and beverage spaces for the 18,000 square feet that remains on the west side of the property.
The Huntridge Theater opened in 1944 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993, the State Register of Historic Places in 1999 and most recently added to the city of Las Vegas Historic Register this past September. The shuttered performing arts center has previously rocked with performers such as The Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Violent Femmes and more until it closed on July 31, 2004, almost 60 years after it opened. In recent years, it has been the subject of several failed attempts to reopen or redevelop the local landmark that once hosted movies, concerts and groundbreaking performances. Dapper purchased the Huntridge Theater for $4 million in March 2021.
“Out of the many potential operating partners who approached us — and there were many outstanding companies who did — we knew this was the right fit for the theater, the community and the city,” J Dapper, principal, said. “SoHo Playhouse has an impeccable reputation in the arts community on a global scale. I know they will care for this historic venue in the way it deserves.”
Earlier this year, artistic director Darren Lee Cole and his team at SoHo Playhouse targeted Las Vegas to be their second home. With a population of more than 2.5 million people, Southern Nevada is the largest metropolitan area in the U.S. without an off-Broadway-style theater. With family residing in Las Vegas and being a frequent visitor for years, Cole is confident the community is ready to support a performing arts center that will offer local theatre artists, off-Broadway artists and visiting performers a home to workshop and develop projects.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be chosen as the sole operators of the historic Huntridge Theater,” Cole said. “We understand the significance of operating a venue with such a storied tradition in Las Vegas and have experienced the passion residents past and present share about performances they attended there when it was a movie theater and concert venue. Our goal at SoHo Playhouse is to bring new creative experiences to the community, creating new memories for residents of every age and background.”
The Huntridge Theater was originally operated by the Commonwealth Theater Company of Las Vegas, and in 1951 was taken over by the Huntridge Theater Company of Las Vegas, partially owned by the actresses Loretta Young and Irene Dunne. The theater was built on land, which had been owned by the international business magnate Leigh S. J. Hunt, he ensuingly left it to his son, Henry Leigh Hunt, in 1933. The Huntridge Theater and the surrounding Huntridge subdivision are named after the Hunt family.

CAMINO VERDE TO CONVERT OLD S.C. NAVY BUILDING INTO APARTMENTS
Las Vegas-based Camino Verde Group (CVG) recently acquired North Charleston’s historic Anchor Center in South Carolina. This marks the first purchase in the Eastern U.S. for the real estate investment and development group.
“This purchase is the first step of our portfolio expansion in the Eastern United States. We appreciate the fundamentals of the greater Charleston market because it is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas that has seen substantial job development due to the recent influx of eminent companies,” said Kevin Romney, co-founder and managing director of Camino Verde Group.
Over recent years, the Noisette area has notably evolved into a high-profile business destination with the influx of manufacturing companies such as Boeing, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz. Other major industries like tech, shipping and engineering are also making the move to the business mecca.
Anchor Center is on a 3.67-acre lot that encompasses an abandoned 158,000-square-foot Navy office building and vacant land in the Metro Charleston area. Decommissioned in 1996, the former military building was once home to the Navy commandant’s office and served a vital role the Vietnam War.
The midcentury property qualifies for South Carolina Abandoned Building and Historic Credits. CVG plans to restore the historically significant features of the building in effort to preserve historic Columbia’s cultural heritage and land, including the commandant’s office and the 130-seat briefing auditorium.
“It’s essential to maintain the historic characteristics of this property to ensure the legacy is preserved,” said Mike Ballard, co-founder of Camino Verde Group. “We plan to revitalize the briefing room as a theatre for movie and comedy events, and the commandant’s office will be available to guests for tours and observation.”
The CVG team plans to refurbish the six-story building, which was originally constructed in 1970, into a multifamily development of 118 units on levels 1-6. The property’s living quarters will consist of 18 studios, 74 one-bedroom units, 18 two-bedroom units and eight three-bedroom units. The residual land will be transformed into another mixed-use development that supports an eight-story building with 295 units.
Located at 2260 Noisette Blvd., the property is within walking distance to Riverfront Park, home to the Greater Charleston Naval Base Memorial, the Eternal Father of the Sea Chapel and a favorite year-round destination for festivals and concerts. The central location also offers convenient access to Downtown Charleston.
