UnCommons Donates $100,000 to Support Fight Against the Spread of Coronavirus in Nevada

LAS VEGAS – April 9, 2020 – Matter Real Estate Group, the community-minded development firm behind UnCommons, has donated $100,000 to support efforts led by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

“Based on guidance by Governor Sisolak and Commissioner Naft, we are making donations that will provide immediate support for our community,” said Matter partner, Jim Stuart. “The people of Las Vegas have been greatly affected by the coronavirus and we feel compelled to take action in this time of great need.”

The funds will be divided evenly between recommendations made by the state and county. Matter has already donated $25,000 toward the purchase of much needed N95 face masks for healthcare professionals in partnership with Sisolak and $25,000 toward providing meal deliveries for senior citizens in partnership with Naft. The remaining $50,000 will be allocated as determined by both elected officials.

“This initial donation by Matter will help care for our most vulnerable population during this time – senior citizens who risk their health by leaving home for food and other basic needs,” said Commissioner Naft. “The unwavering commitment to Las Vegas by community leaders like Matter demonstrates that we truly are in this together.”

“We conceived UnCommons as the new centerpiece of our community as a place, ironically, that connects people,” said Stuart. “It’s in that spirit that we feel compelled to take action now, particularly when this virus has left us all so isolated.” Matter had earlier announced plans for a groundbreaking party for UnCommons where both Governor Sisolak and Commissioner Naft were scheduled to speak. The company later canceled the event as the impending spread of the coronavirus and its impact have become clear. The company is now recognizing the milestone through community support.

UnCommons, a fully financed, first-of-its kind mixed-use development in southwest Las Vegas, will break ground this spring. The $400-million project is designed for the modern workforce’s desire for a workplace that enhances their lives through rich amenities, open space and connectivity. The curated office, retail, restaurant, lifestyle and residential offerings will be complemented by a pedestrian trail and public art, situated on a walkable 40-acre site. The development will include outdoor common spaces, a venue that blends music and movies, a beer garden, a food hall showcasing the best of the local food scene, additional food and beverage spaces, health and fitness studios, a multi-purpose conference center, 500,000+ square feet of modern office space, 830+ urban stylized apartment units and more. More information about UnCommons is available on the project website at www.UnCommons.com, on Facebook at @UnCommonsLasVegas and on Instagram at @UnCommons.LV.
