In support of the community during the coronavirus pandemic, Matter Real Estate Group (Matter), the community-minded developer behind UnCommons, a first-of-its-kind development coming to Durango Drive and the 215 Beltway in southwest Las Vegas, and Las Vegas-based Burke Construction Group (Burke) have delivered free meals to night shift healthcare workers at multiple hospitals in the Las Vegas Valley last week to show their appreciation for the community’s first responders.
Over the course of the first six days of this initiative, more than 1,760 meals have been delivered to local hospitals including Sunrise Hospital, Desert Springs Hospital, St. Rose Dominican Hospital’s San Martin and Siena Campuses, Southern Hills Hospital, Henderson Hospital and Summerlin Hospital. The meals were prepared by some of Las Vegas’ favorite restaurants including Piero’s Italian Cuisine, Lotus of Siam, Sushi Kame and dessert from Urth Caffé. Representatives were onsite during the deliveries to show their appreciation.
UnCommons’ meal donations for night shift healthcare professionals will continue every night through Saturday, April 25, with nearly 2,000 additional meals scheduled for delivery to Mountain View Hospital, Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center; North Vista Hospital, Spring Valley Hospital, Valley Hospital Medical Center and University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.
The meal donations follow UnCommons’ recent $25,000 donation to the Culinary Workers Union Local 226’s Helping Hand program, which is helping provide food assistance to those in need in Las Vegas, through efforts led by Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft. The $25,000 donation is part of a $100,000 commitment that Matter has made toward local efforts in the fight against coronavirus. Of that donation, $25,000 went toward the purchase of much needed N95 face masks for healthcare professionals in support of efforts by Governor Steve Sisolak and $25,000 was donated to the Jewish Family Services Agency to provide meals for senior citizens in support of efforts by Naft. The remaining $25,000 donation is earmarked to support additional needs as identified by Sisolak.
UnCommons, a fully financed, first-of-its kind mixed-use development in southwest Las Vegas, will break ground this spring. The $400-million project is designed for the modern workforce’s desire for a workplace that enhances their lives through rich amenities, open space and connectivity. The curated office, retail, restaurant, lifestyle and residential offerings will be complemented by a pedestrian trail and public art, situated on a walkable 40-acre site. The development will include outdoor common spaces, a venue that blends music and movies, a beer garden, a food hall showcasing the best of the local food scene, additional food and beverage spaces, health and fitness studios, a multi-purpose conference center, 500,000+ square feet of modern office space, 830+ urban stylized apartment units and more.
