New NLV warehouse expected to bring tenants, jobs

NORTH LAS VEGAS -- A massive new warehouse that's being built in North Las Vegas is expected to grow business in the area.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval attended the groundbreaking of the LogistiCenter near Cheyenne Avenue and Lamb Boulevard Tuesday.

Officials expect the building to be move-in ready within five months.

The warehouse is being built as a "spec" building, much like a spec home, meaning there isn't a firm tenant. When the building is complete, it will measure 380,000 square feet. That's equal to seven football fields laid side-by-side.

"This is the type of project that we welcome," said Tom Collins, Clark County Commissioner. "It brings good jobs to the area."

Collins and Gov. Sandoval both touted the project as a sign the economy was turning around.

Acts of Kindness: Paul Miles

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Paul Miles logs four to six miles every morning in his North Las Vegas neighborhood.

"When I started walking five years ago, I had seen all this, and I thought I can't pass it by,” he said.

Trash piled up along the roadway. So, he started doing something about it.

"Some days, I have four, five, six bags, and I carry a big bag in my pocket. Sometimes, I fill that up," he said.

Miles joined the U.S. Navy in 1954. Almost 40 years later, he landed in Las Vegas to work at the Nevada Test Site.

Now retired, he does his part to beautify his neighborhood.

"I don't know if it makes much of an impact, but that's what I do,” he said.

His neighbors say he leaves a lasting impact.

"I worked at the Arizona memorial with volunteer veterans on ships. I knew he was on a ship in the war. I felt he deserves this. He beautifies our neighborhood, beautiful man, inside and out,” said Miles' neighbor Jeanne Brase.
