Nate Carlson, vice president of development for the Wolff Company, sees tremendous potential for more residential development in Fremont East. That’s why Wolff Company, in a joint venture with 901 Fremont LLC, an affiliate of Downtown Project, recently began site work for Fremont9, a 231-unit mixed-use apartment complex on the southeast corner of Fremont and 9th streets.
The project will be the first of its kind in the emerging Fremont East area, Carlson says.
The five-story, podium-style building will include 15,000 square feet of retail space. It will feature a resident lounge and resort-style pool, and apartment units will come with premium finishes such as quartz countertops, undermounted sinks, custom tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances.
Based on leasing trends at other Downtown Project residential properties, there isn’t one specific demographic moving to the area, Carlson says. It’s a broad range of people, and Fremont9 will offer options ranging from studios for singles and people who are looking to downsize, to three-bedroom units for growing families.
Construction, with Korte Company as general contractor, is expected to take about 14 months, so it’s too early to set rental rates.
“We plan to determine pricing late this year or early next year, and we’ll update our website accordingly. However, we’re confident pricing at Fremont9 will fill a gap in current residential pricing in Downtown Las Vegas,” Carlson says.
