On February 16th, our St. George, UT team participated in a Mesquite, NV, groundbreaking event along with the owners, the Dixie and Anne Leavitt Family Foundation. The idea for this project was formulated ten years ago, and the Leavitt Foundation recently selected Zwick Construction as their contractor.
The Virgin Valley Heritage Park project will include five apartment buildings, totaling 35 units. One of those buildings will be a mixed-use complex, featuring nine retail spaces at street level. Residents of these apartments will have access to a common-space gym and patio roof deck lounges.
The heart of the project is a new community park that will surround the apartments. The park will include a stream that runs throughout the block, representing the Virgin Valley—the water source that sustains Mesquite. Next to the stream will be a pavilion with exhibits and an amphitheater for community events. The site is located across the street from the Mesquite City Hall.
This project pays tribute to early settlers to the valley, including the Leavitt family and others. Truly a community project, proceeds of the space will be used to benefit the locality. As Anne Leavitt said, “All profits derived from the rental or sale of these buildings will go to charitable causes.”
