Northgate Distribution Center

Ainsworth Gaming

Northgate Distribution Center is the largest speculative industrial development project in the history of Southern Nevada. The 170-acre project calls for over 4.1 million square feet in multiple phases. Martin-Harris has completed tenant improvements for Fanatics, a global seller of official licensed sports merchandise (400,000 SF), The Honest Company, a national consumer goods merchandiser (575,000 SF), and Amazon (813,000 SF & 248,000 SF).

Critical factors in the development’s rapid delivery include VanTrust’s early engagement, a collaborative design and brokerage team, and Martin-Harris’ ability to self-perform the large tilt-panel buildings. The rapid pace of construction and collaboration among the various team members enabled tenants to occupy and begin working within their spaces as early as September 2016, while building construction continued around them.

 This collaboration was critical from the very beginning of the project.  The land initially lacked necessary utilities and proper infrastructure – the site was not served by water, sewer, electricity or gas. The situation was further complicated by physical boundaries created by the existence of I-15 to the south and Union Pacific Railroad to the north. Preconstruction efforts focused on ironing out all the details for the large scale civil project to ensure that when construction commenced in the fourth quarter of 2015, off-site improvements were the first to be completed.
