Matter Real Estate Group (Matter) has announced that UnCommons will introduce the city’s first neighborhood Urth Caffé, a pioneer in the craft coffee movement. Now under construction, the $400 million mixed-use development at Durango Drive and the 215 Beltway in southwest Las Vegas opens in 2022.
“Urth Caffé has built a loyal following through their unwavering commitment to sustainability and we are immensely grateful that they are joining the UnCommons community, where together we can champion that commitment,” said Matter Partner Jim Stuart. “At the core of UnCommons are thought leaders who will bring together a collection of food and beverage offerings that will be unmatched, and we’re thrilled to announce that Urth will be a part of it.”
Urth Caffé is widely regarded as the first exclusively heirloom and organic coffee roaster in America. Working directly with many of its own exclusive sources in Africa and South America, Urth Caffé’s coffee is 100 percent pesticide-free and is grown in the natural shade of fruit trees and rainforest canopy. By utilizing organic, sustainable and biodynamic agriculture Urth promotes the health and longevity of soil and ecosystems while ensuring the protection of animal and human habitats.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to introduce Urth to Las Vegas locals through our new home at UnCommons,” said Urth Caffé Co-Founder Shallom Berkman. “We are equally excited to be a part of a larger, social mission to connect people back to one another and applaud the work the UnCommons team has dedicated to developing this community.”
Urth Caffé was founded three decades ago in Manhattan Beach, where the family-owned coffee shop and café cultivated a loyal following for its heirloom, organic coffee and farm-to-table eats. “Urth,” the old-world Welsh spelling for planet Earth, and “Caffé,” Italian for coffee, come together with sustainable ingredients and home-grown recipes in a welcoming atmosphere.
Accompanying its vast beverage menu, Urth Caffé serves inspired health-conscious cuisine that emphasizes sustainable and organic ingredients bought through direct relationships with family farms. Food options include dishes like acai bowls, omelets, pancakes, French toast, paninis, brunch selections, breakfast pizzas and more.
The community’s addition of Urth emphasizes UnCommons’ thoughtful approach in designing a human-centered community that will focus on life in a post-pandemic world. From prioritizing health and safety to instigating connection and collaboration, UnCommons has taken a holistic approach in creating project that will leave a lasting impact on the Las Vegas community.
UnCommons will reimagine the workplace experience with market-leading design and technology; floor-to-ceiling windows that welcome daylight and views of the natural Las Vegas surroundings; breakout spaces for individual work or small group collaboration; a conference center that can be used to host small meetings and workshops; and more. Bringing together multiple fitness studios, open-air common areas, contemporary residential units, a luxury movie theater and a mélange of food and beverage options, the campus will set the foundation for a thriving, inspiring workplace.
Earlier this year, the mixed-use campus announced Platform One, Las Vegas’ first neighborhood food hall; bringing to life trendsetting restaurants and cafes that follow the good food movement; and nearly 1,000 apartment residences in a walkable, micro community. Future phases will bring UnCommons to more than 500,000 square feet of modern office space, built with distinctive architectural features and the latest in safety innovations.
