Fore Property Co., a national full-service real estate company with offices in Las Vegas, and the company’s partner, Argosy Real Estate Partners, broke ground on a luxury multifamily project at 3616 Spring Mountain Road at the end of September.

The 295-unit apartment project will rest at the beginning of Chinatown Plaza at Spring Mountain and Valley View Boulevard. The project also will include a 9,000-square-foot retail space.

“We look forward to creating a unique and luxurious living community, which will help revitalize this dynamic part of Las Vegas,” said Alison Burk, development director at Fore Property Co. Las Vegas. “The property combines high-end amenities with close proximity to the Strip, offering a one-of-a-kind living experience.”

To date, there hasn’t been an announcement of a build-out date or projections on the cost of the project. The project broke ground Sept. 26.

A rendering of the property has been released, along with details of its amenities. Residents will have a rooftop terrace, a yoga-spin room, two resort-style pools with a DJ booth and cabanas and a virtual sports room. Other amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, massage room and concierge services.

Future residents will be able to choose from studio, and one- two- and three-bedroom options.

Also, there will be an option of upgrading to 22 premium units. The units will feature full tile baths, rainfall showerheads, porcelain wood tile flooring, island waterfall countertops and a refrigerator.

Report shows growing backlog for construction firms

The Associated Builders and Contractors’ analysis on the second quarter of 2016, released at the end of September, showed an increase in nonresidential construction backlog across all regions in the U.S.

Across the Western region, which included Nevada, the association reported a backlog increase of 3.1 percent or 0.21 months. This brings the average number of months on backlog to 7.15.

Also in the report, firms with revenues reaching more than $100 million saw an all-time peak backlog of 14.06 months. That was an increase of 14.8 percent over the association’s first-quarter analysis, which showed a 12.25-month backlog.

The tide could be shifting for the national scene.

“While a handful of commercial construction segments continue to be associated with expanding volumes, for the most part, the average contractor is no longer getting busier,” said ABC Chief Economist Anirban Basu. “While backlog is hardly collapsing, the period of growing in nonresidential construction spending appears to be ending. In fact, nonresidential construction spending data indicates that growth has been slowing for a number of months, something that prior weak CBI readings suggested would occur.”
