First SunLife Organics in Nevada Coming to Southwest Las Vegas at UnCommons this Summer

Las Vegas’ first SunLife Organics is set to open this summer at UnCommons, a $400 million, 40-acre mixed-use community by Matter Real Estate Group. The cult-favorite, health-centric eatery will bring a taste of Southern California with its organic superfood bowls, smoothies, and cold-pressed juices.

Hailing from Malibu, SunLife not only provides more than nourishment through its mindfully curated menu, but also brings a deeper perspective on health and positivity to the community. Founded by Khalil Rafati in 2011, SunLife is committed to serving Las Vegas with the highest quality organic ingredients that Mother Nature offers.

“Whether it is our loyal customers or our dedicated employees, SunLife Organics is about physical, mental and spiritual growth,” said Rafati. “This is something we have committed to since we started SunLife. Ever since I began my journey to better myself, we have embedded the same ideals into our company culture.”

SunLife Organics provides an alternative take to a modern-day juice bar. Designed by a feng shui master, each location incorporates crystals and geodes – some standing over seven feet tall – throughout the space that Rafati has collected throughout his travels. Because of this unique layout, seating is located entirely outside the juice bar, at handcrafted oversized picnic tables in a secluded courtyard.

SunLife Organics’ drinks are made with the highest quality organic ingredients. This is highlighted in menu items such as the “Wolverine” which is made with banana, raw almond butter, Medjool dates, maca, bee pollen, raw cacao nibs, raw coconut butter, royal jelly, and almond milk. The juice bar will also serve fruit and protein bowls, including the Bliss Bowl made with blended açaí, banana, blueberries, cashew butter, and hemp milk topped with superfood trail mix and bananas almond butter, coconut shreds, and honey; and the Dragon Bowl made with blended dragon fruit, raspberry, mango, and hemp milk topped with granola, strawberry, blueberry, and coconut shreds.

A former addict, Rafati has spoken out on how he suffered from depression and the side effects of an unhealthy diet despite becoming sober. He credits a diet of whole organic foods, juicing and natural remedies to help him overcome his addictions and change his life. Since his recovery, Rafati has traveled worldwide, searching for the best ingredients the world offers. His search has brought him to some of the most exotic places on earth including Japan, Indonesia, Central America, India and more. Rafati emphasizes helping those living in the surrounding community, with each location providing young adults a safe and sober atmosphere for everyone to live, grow and thrive in the world.

“We have long been familiar with SunLife Organics and their impact in every community they serve,” said Matter Real Estate Group Partner Jim Stuart. “Their culture and commitment to a healthy, balanced lifestyle are the perfect fit for UnCommons and we look forward to welcoming them this summer.”

SunLife Organics will join a stellar lineup of food and beverage destinations at UnCommons, including Las Vegas’ first neighborhood food hall; Cuban-inspired neighborhood bodega, Mercadito; beloved boba tea shop, Teaspoon; heirloom coffee roaster and pioneer, Urth Caffé; and MINA Group’s first off-Strip, fast-casual restaurant, plus many more to be announced soon.

UnCommons Begins Phase II Construction, Adding Two Office Buildings, a Conference Center and Parking Garage

The second commercial phase of UnCommons, Matter Real Estate Group’s much-anticipated $400 million, 40-acre mixed-use community coming to southwest Las Vegas, is now under construction. Phase II will bring to the campus a state-of-the-art conference center, two coveted office buildings and an additional parking garage with ample stalls. The construction is expected to be completed by summer 2023.

“The start of UnCommons’ second phase builds upon the remarkable progress that has been made since we broke ground last year,” said Matter Real Estate Group VP of Strategic Partnerships Tom van Betten. “We continue to experience demand for high-quality, connected workspaces in southern Nevada, and the addition of these next two buildings will provide a favorable option for the area’s leading businesses.”

A notable addition coming with Phase II will be “The Assembly,” an innovative 5,000-square-foot conference center. What will be a contemporary venue for meetings and events with a keen sense for collaboration, the space will provide flexibility in the size and shape for all types of indoor and outdoor events. Designed to hold meetings from 10 to 250 people, The Assembly will also offer catering from exclusive restaurateurs located in UnCommons.

Phase II of UnCommons will also add two four-story office buildings totaling 180,000 square feet, featuring 20,000 to 25,000 square feet floor plates available for lease. These additional buildings will have connected patio balconies, allowing for the option for companies to enhance their spaces with “super floors” that are up to 45,000 square feet. Phase II will also deliver an additional parking structure featuring nearly 750 parking stalls for community members and visitors.

Several industry leaders have committed to move into the sought-after spaces within UnCommons’ Phase I office buildings beginning early summer, including CBRE, Morgan Stanley, BDO and Sotheby’s International Realty. DraftKings also announced late last year that it will occupy 90,000 square feet within UnCommons, for what will serve as the North America headquarters for the digital sports entertainment and gaming leader.

Phase II will bring UnCommons to more than 335,000 square feet of modern office space built with distinctive architectural features, the latest safety innovations, and a conference center that can host small meetings and workshops. Once the construction of the second and third phases has been completed, UnCommons will have a total of five office buildings and four parking garages.

UnCommons will be the first development in Nevada built to WELL™ Certification, the highest third-party endorsement of a building’s performance and protection of employee health. Features include near hospital-quality HVAC systems, operable windows and patios, touch-free access, abundant natural daylight, and interior finishes made with materials to limit the spread of bacteria. Additionally, UnCommons was recently awarded two Green Globes®, a nationally recognized green rating assessment, guidance and certification program, for its sustainability efforts.

UnCommons will reimagine the workplace experience with market-leading design and technology, floor-to-ceiling windows that welcome daylight and views of the natural Las Vegas surroundings, breakout spaces for individual work or small group collaboration. The campus will set the foundation for a thriving, inspiring workplace by bringing together multiple fitness studios, common open-air areas, contemporary residential units, and a mélange of food and beverage options.
