Senior care and the medical industry of Las Vegas will get a big shot in the arm over the next few months as the city of Henderson will see the development of the 155-acre Union Village project east of US 95 near Central Church.
The project will include a 300-unit condominium build-out, a 14,000 square foot dialysis clinic, a memory and dementia care centers, restaurants, retail, and a 95,000 square foot Las Vegas Athletic Club facility, among other improvements. There will even be a 5-acre park built and donated to the city of Henderson to provide green space for residents.
Union Village is being designed as a place to work, play, live, shop, and more.
The linchpin of the project, Henderson Hospital, opened in late 2016. It has stood a bit lonely, but more of the project will be completed soon.
The cost of the project will be $1.2 billion and will provide employment for hundreds in all of the various establishments, including some of the world's most advanced memory care facilities.
Adjacent to Union Village, the Wolff Co is building a 350-unit apartment complex near there. The Las Vegas Athletic club facility is expected to open later this year.
On top of the much-needed medical facilities, the additional housing will provide doctors, nurses, and technicians with housing that will allow them to walk to work. With shopping and entertainment right in the village, this is likely to become the center of the residents' lives - which is the developer's intention.
