Bank of Nevada is helping Southern Nevada businesses to meet the needs of an accelerating economy through the financing of more than $270 million dollars in development projects. This represents in excess of 1.8 million sq. ft. of commercial projects — multi-family, office, retail, and leisure — over the last 18 months.
“I think the projects that we've financed over the last 18 months illustrate the strong desire of many local businesses to grow,” said Bill Oakley, real estate manager of Bank of Nevada. “As a leading construction lender, Bank of Nevada is actively seeking to meet the needs of the business community and participating in driving projects forward throughout the region.”
Southern Nevada's population now exceeds 2.2 million, growing more than 2 percent year over year, with a labor force exceeding 1.1 million people, according to the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA) August 2017 Economic Snapshot. In addition, a comparison of Las Vegas area employment figures between 2015 and 2016 show job growth in nine out of 10 major industry sectors, according to the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation.
