SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wolff Company has announced a partnership with 901 Fremont, LLC, an affiliate of Downtown Project, with plans to develop a groundbreaking mixed-use multifamily project on 1.3 acres in Downtown Las Vegas (DTLV). The proposed 5-story, podium-style building, currently being dubbed Fremont & 9th, will include 231 units as well as 15,000 square feet of retail space along Fremont Street. It will be the first of its kind in the emerging Fremont East area, which is being revitalized with the help of many investments and initiatives by Downtown Project and its founder, Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.
"We're happy to welcome The Wolff Company to downtown, and believe this development is an important addition to Fremont Street because there currently isn't anything like it available in the area," said Hsieh. "Increasing the residential density is key to making the Fremont East area a truly vibrant place to live, work, and play. We're excited to see this development for those who want to live downtown."
Located at the intersection of 9th and Fremont Streets, the property will be within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars, and other retailers and small businesses in the urban DTLV district. It will be adjacent to the largest dog park in DTLV, The Hydrant Club, a block from Downtown Container Park, and a 5-minute walk to the Fremont Street Experience. Residents will also have convenient access to U.S. Highway 95 and Interstate 15, and will be just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and the UNLV campus.
"The population of Downtown Las Vegas is growing and evolving, yet there is a lack of rental housing options to meet the area's demand," said Nate Carlson, Vice President of Development for The Wolff Company. "Fremont & 9th will change the face of DTLV living, offering residents a stylish home with unprecedented access to entertainment, retail and hospitality."
Fremont & 9th is being designed to take full advantage of its location with a suite of amenities that promote a true "live, work, play" lifestyle. Urban art and style will be found throughout the property from its hip resident lounge and resort-style pool to the premium unit finishes such as quartz countertops, under-mounted sinks, custom tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances. The Korte Company, based in Las Vegas, has been selected as the general contractor. Construction on Fremont & 9th is scheduled to start in the next 30 days.
