In a significant boost for the North Las Vegas office market, Asurion L.L.C. plans to open a 90,000-square-foot call center at the Montecito Point office complex. The Nashville, Tenn.-based provider of insurance for mobile devices says that it will hire 500 people in the next year and 800 people over the next five years at the facility, which is located at 6605 Grand Montecito Parkway near U.S. Highway 95 and the Las Vegas Beltway.
According to The Las Vegas Review-Journal, the announcement comes after Asurion made a pitch for tax incentives in January to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
In other news, the newly acquired and rebranded U-Haul Moving and Storage at 3083 W. Lake Mead Boulevard is now open. Formerly known as Pic-N-Pac Storage, the facility includes a two-story self-storage facility as well as a one-story self-storage building that also includes office space and an apartment.
Completed in 2005, the facility offers 634 indoor and drive-up units, 534 of which are air-conditioned.
According to a statement from U-Haul Co., the new facility reflects the company’s support of infill development to help communities reduce their carbon footprint. The use of existing buildings helps minimize energy and resource consumption associated with new construction.
