LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — There are a lot of big projects in the works across the Valley and many of these are centered in one area which is seeing major growth and its now known as — West Henderson.
The area is in the vicinity of St. Rose Parkway, near the Henderson Executive Airport and the future Raiders new headquarters and practice facility.
Besides the Raiders Headquarters, corporations such as Google, Amazon, Fed Ex and Levi’s want to be at West Henderson.

“We’re developing a 500 thousand square foot business park here in West Henderson,” added Stuart.
The first phase of Matter Park is 300 thousand feet, and it was introduced to the community Tuesday.
“Seeing West henderson meet a vision that the city has had now for decades and go through the crisis and still came back on and have the Raiders make a big commitment, who can’t be thrilled and excited,” he added.
