US-based developer BPS Partners has begun work on a $100m retail and restaurant complex in Las Vegas, US, inspired by New York’s Times Square.
The development, called Harmon Corner, has been designed by SH Architecture and will feature a triangular shape.
The steel and glass clad building will consist of a Walgreens Pharmacy along with 17 other stores, three restaurants with an outdoor patio venue.
The complex will feature a 65ft×320ft programmable video billboard wrapped around the building’s crown.
The building will use adhesives and paints with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs), low-flow plumbing fixtures and a high-efficiency cooling and heating system, with the intention of achieving a LEED Silver rating for environmental efficiency.
Harmon Corner is scheduled to open by the end of 2011.
