(Bizuayehu Tesfaye/Las Vegas Review-Journal) @bizutesfaye Jim Stuart is looking to develop a big mixed-use project in the valley — but it won’t be centered on retail like Town Square Las Vegas, which he lost to foreclosure after the economy crashed. He now envisions a lively office park. Stuart’s new company, Matter Real Estate Group, has drawn up plans for a $400 million, 40-acre project in the southwest valley called UnCommons. The developers want to build 500,000 square feet of offices, nearly 100,000 square feet of retail space and 875 apartments, all at the southeast corner of Durango Drive and the 215 Beltway. Renderings show a densely built, walkable environment similar to Town Square, The District at Green Valley Ranch and Tivoli Village. Stuart’s group owns about 8 acres of the site and plans to close escrow on the rest by early summer after they obtain project approvals from Clark County, he said. The project would bring a big burst of construction to an already fast-growing part of town and, Stuart hopes, offer a unique office campus with such amenities as a food hall, coffee shops, restaurants and live music. The workplace itself plays a large role, if not the main one, in young professionals’ decision-making process when accepting a job offer, according to Stuart. As he sees it, recruiting them to a quiet office park that’s void of amenities will not win them over. “We dreamed of a place where we would want to work, and this is it,” said Stuart, a partner at Matter. San Diego-based Matter announced its formation last year and has unveiled plans for several warehouses in Southern Nevada, including a 10-acre complex in the southwest valley, a 300,000-square-foot project in Henderson next to the Raiders’ future practice site, and a 540,000-square-foot industrial park near North Las Vegas Airport. The group is negotiating with lenders to finance UnCommons and talking to prospective office and retail users, Stuart said. No leases have been signed. Stuart was no stranger to Las Vegas before he and his partners launched Matter. Through his old firm Centra Properties, he teamed with Florida-based Turnberry Associates during the boom years last decade to develop Town Square, the 100-acre retail and office complex south of the Strip. They opened it in 2007 as the economy showed signs of cracks and lost it to foreclosure in 2011 after the market cratered. Las Vegas was ground zero for America’s real estate collapse, and Town Square was one of countless projects in town that got derailed during the recession. But Stuart had better luck with other properties in town. He sold off holdings before the crash, including the project site for Las Ramblas. In 2005, during the real estate bubble, he teamed with Miami condo developer Jorge Pérez, actor George Clooney and nightclub owner Rande Gerber to build Las Ramblas, a $3 billion hotel-condo project just east of the Strip. County records indicate the developers acquired the site for about $80 million. But in 2006, amid fast-rising property values, they sold it for around $200 million.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom got engaged on Valentine’s Day, having survived lots of ups and downs in their three-year relationship, including a breakup and Bloom being exposed as someone who likes to paddleboard in the nude. In announcing their engagement with twin Instagram posts, the 34-year-old singer and the 42-year-old movie star offered up an image that shows how much they believe their love is forever. On her finger, Perry displayed a very big, very floral-looking ring that is incredible pricey. “Full bloom,” Perry captioned her selfie with Bloom. View this post on Instagram full bloom A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on Feb 15, 2019 at 2:07am PST The ring features a 4-carat pink stone in the center, surrounded by eight white diamonds, a diamond expert told E! News. Andrew Brown, president of WP Diamonds, also said the ring would retail in the range of $5 million, making it one of the priciest engagement rings to ever grace the hand of a celebrity. “This ring is truly one-of-a-kind and wildly valuable,” Brown said. Indeed. According to a survey by Vogue magazine of more than 51 “best” celebrity rings, Perry is now wearing one of the most expensive rings ever worn by a star.   #gallery-5877097-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-5877097-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-5877097-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-5877097-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ British actor Orlando Bloom (L) and US singer Katy Perry pose upon their arrival at the 2nd Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean 2018 held in Monaco on September 26, 2018. – On September 26, 2018, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation will hold its second Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean, a major fundraising event in the heart of Monte Carlo, in order to support its worldwide initiatives in favor of a sustainable ocean, a crucial issue calling for immediate and collective action.
