World Jewelry Center
World Jewelry Center is the name, and the center
piece of the Center is the spectacular 50 story high-rise tower rendered above. Billed as "The New
Global Marketplace For Gems and Jewelry," it is destined to dominate
downtown Las Vegas, Nevada.
As promised last month, this issue features information
about this world-class venue. Rather than fashioning my own description, I will
quote directly from the worldjewelrycenter.com
The World Jewelry
Center, with approximately one million square feet of mixed-use space, will be
one of the largest jewelry hubs on the planet. Located in Las Vegas, in the new
master-planned community of Union Park, the new Center will combine the
corporate offices of domestic and international gem and jewelry companies in an
iconic, state-of-the-art trade tower adjacent to a spectacular free-standing
gallery of retail jewelry stores with broad market appeal. The mixed-use project
will also feature a world-class museum, exhibition space, and exclusive luxury
residential condominiums. Designed to house manufacturers, dealers, wholesalers,
and retailers, the World Jewelry Center is poised to revolutionize the global
jewelry industry and become a progressive business focal point for international
trade and commerce.
The World Jewelry Center will be a one-stop shop for both gem and jewelry
professionals and the consuming public. The convergence of key trade leaders
that span all industry sectors and international boundaries will bring
innovative ideas and best practices, setting new standards for quality and
integrity in the trade. The project is unique in that professionals will have
the opportunity to purchase their own office condominiums. The public will also
benefit from a unique, service-oriented shopping experience that is educational
in nature and promotes consumer confidence. The World Jewelry Center truly is
the new global marketplace for gems and jewelry.
Ideally situated at the crossroads of two major
highways that service the Las Vegas area in every direction, the World Jewelry
Center boasts a superior location within close proximity to the Las Vegas Strip,
McCarran International Airport, and Summerlin, the largest residential
masterplanned community in the United States.
The project will be part of a new master planned
community known as Union Park, a 61-acre property located in Las Vegas. Union
Park will be a new urban center for work, living, and play, and includes such
projects as the Frank Gehry designed Lou Ruvo Alzheimer's Center, the Smith
Center for the Performing Arts, and an expansive public plaza and park. Union
Park is also adjacent to the World Market Center, the U.S. hub for the furniture
industry, and the Las Vegas Premium Outlets, one of the most successful outlet
malls in the U.S.
Designed by renowned Altoon+Porter Architects,
the World Jewelry Center will be a cutting-edge facility that adds value and
synergy to the jewelry industry.
Construction is scheduled to start before the
end of 2007, with completion anticipated before mid-2010.
The project has announced commitments by more than 100
occupants already. Another recent success was the announcement that the
U.S. Commerce Department has approved the Center as a Foreign
Trade Zone Site.
We look forward to visiting and doing business with some of
