The Largest Privately Funded Building in Downtown Las Vegas in the Last Decade

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Featuring electric-car charging stations in a 75,000-square-foot parking space; a full gym with showers; four conference rooms on each floor; and a mock courtroom on the third floor “built for students at William S. Boyd School of Law to practice and host mock trials,” the Robert T. Eglet Advocacy Center at 400 S. 7th St. has been described in a news release according to the Las Vegas Sun, as “the largest privately funded building in downtown Las Vegas in the last decade.”

Adjacent to Towne Terrace apartments, it is a green-energy and water-efficient building, and is owned by Tony Hsieh, an online shoe-retailer-turned-re-developer. The building is reported to be retrofitted with non-visible solar panels.

It has also been reported by the Las Vegas Sun that Attorney Robert Eglet was given the royal treatment during the ribbon cutting of his $18 million namesake center, a block east of the George Federal Building. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid led the ribbon-cutting ceremony calling Robert Eglet his “longtime friend.” Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman was in attendance. The Boyd School of Law graduate was honored and Reid said in a prepared statement that, “This facility will be a wonderful resource for the community, especially to students at the Boyd School of Law.”

This year Robert Eglet was named Trial Lawyer of the Year by the National Trial Lawyers Association. In 2012 and 2005, he was named Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Nevada Justice Association. And in 2010, he was named National Lawyer of the Year by Lawyers USA. Steve Wolfson, Clark County District Attorney says that the building adds “a new dimension to the downtown legal community.”
