Minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, the immersive art and entertainment enclave known as AREA15 will soon undergo a significant 20-acre expansion complete with new attractions, shopping and dining.
The new construction stretches past AREA15’s primary complex, which is known for its famous attractions, including Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart, Illuminarium and Lost Spirits Distillery. Now, AREA15 is partnering up with local businesses to bring on even more top-tier experiences, curated shops, special entertainment and daring food and beverage options.
There is already much hype surrounding Universal Parks & Resorts’ expansion with a new, year-round horror entertainment experience inspired by its popular Halloween Horror Nights. In addition, a scrapped Boeing 747 plane will be converted into an event venue, and there will also be more than 85,000 square feet devoted to pop-ups and outdoor events.
“AREA15 curates a constellation of world-class experiences and our partnership with an internationally renowned entertainment company such as Universal marks a significant milestone in our evolution,” says Winston Fisher, chief executive officer of AREA15, in a press release. “Consumers continue to gravitate toward artful new forms of entertainment providing immersive experiences, authentic connections and real emotions. The demand for more AREA15 experiences is high, and we are ready to dive into this substantial expansion and find more partnerships that will have a lasting impact on the AREA15 District and the City of Las Vegas.”
With tenant leasing options ranging from 1,000 square feet to 60,000 square feet, the district’s expansion will encompass more than 450,000 square feet of adaptable retail, office and residential space with diverse types of building structures, perfect to give any business a little more buzz in the Downtown Las Vegas area. Future tenants in the neighborhood will have the chance to develop custom storefront designs that will enhance AREA15’s lively, immersive environment as customers continue to gravitate toward immersive retail experiences.
