On Thursday April 7,2011 city of Henderson officials and developers announced the master plan for an integrated hospital and retail campus called Union Village.
The ambitious, privately funded $1.5 billion project is expected to generate 17,000 jobs including over 5,000 permanent ones. Union Village will be the first intigrated health care and mixed use developement in the country, with the heart of the facility being a 214 bed hospital, surrounded by 300,000 square feet of retail space and another 300,000 square feet of medical office space, residential apartments and a mid range hotel. The plans also include a multi-screen movie theater, 24 Hour Fitness, senior assisted living, restaurants and outside cafes.
The 171 acre piece of city owned land was originally purchased in the early 1990′s for a sports complex that did not materialize. Now it sits vacant across from the Galleria Mall and Costco between 93/95 and Stephanie.
According to Major Hafen “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity”.
If sale and financing goes according to plan, developers plan on groundbreaking by the end of 2011.
This looks like an amazing opportunity for the City of Henderson to diversify it’s commercial offerings, focus on quality medical facilities, as well as giving it’s residents another place to take the family for some outside recreation fun.
A “Town Square with a medical flare”!!
My fingers are crossed
