New residential community breaks ground at Symphony Park in downtown

Sunday, June 23, 2019

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Scheduled to open in 2021, construction on a new 290-unit multifamily community located in Symphony Park in downtown began last week with a groundbreaking ceremony.

Aspen Heights Partners and Canyon Partners Real Estate announced in a release that the three-to-five story development is among the first residential projects to break ground at the new 61-acre Symphony Park master planned community.

The project is being designed by architectural firm CallisonRTKL, and it will feature colored metal paneling to mirror the colorful pips in Tim Bavington’s ‘Pipe Dream’ sculpture located in a park adjacent to the project.

Aspen Heights Partners CEO Greg Henry said, “With a world-class performing arts center and urban park right next door, this community will offer a truly unique living experience.”

The new community, which is still awaiting an official name, features 18 two-level townhomes on the ground floor and 12 loft-style penthouse apartments on the top floor.

Also, the building will include around 4,300 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor.

At the groundbreaking ceremony, Aspen Heights presented the Nevada Museum of Art with a $5,000 donation to help the museum build a new museum in the Symphony Park District.

The ceremony was attended by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Councilman Cedric Crear, Ethiopian Ambassador to the U.S. Fitsum Arega and many others.
