Amalie Zinsser Brings Professional Enrichment Expertise from WeWork to New Mixed-Use Development
LAS VEGAS (October 1, 2020) – UnCommons, Matter Real Estate Group’s much-anticipated mixed-use development at Interstate 215 and Durango Drive in southwest Las Vegas, has announced the addition of Amalie Zinsser as community engagement lead. With several years of experience in professional enrichment, Zinsser will be responsible for developing a culture that instills a sense of belonging and fosters genuine human connection for the mixed-use community, which is scheduled for opening in early 2022.
“Amalie’s role at UnCommons is vital, as this project has been intentionally designed to fulfill the modern workforce’s desire for a human-centered workplace that enhances their lives through rich amenities, open space and connectivity,” said Matter Real Estate Group Partner Jim Stuart. “Amalie will help shape UnCommons as a collaborative hub for our community. We are incredibly lucky to have her on board to guide all of us to a better place and to amplify the experience at UnCommons.”
Bringing the skills she honed while serving as people and portfolio operations director at WeWork for five years, Zinsser will foster the UnCommons ethos of community and connection through innovative tenant and resident programs, collaborative events, thought-provoking panels and more. With Zinsser as the catalyst, these pieces will come together to offer an elevated experience that enables people, teams and businesses to operate in harmony with each other, accelerating performance and growth.
“Where we live and work matters for our own sense of self and wellbeing,” said Zinsser. “The desire to belong and connect with others is a basic human instinct, and I look forward to helping develop the UnCommons community into one that is ripe with genuine connections and where everyone feels welcome, valued and involved.”
Some of the innovative programs that are being planned by Zinsser include the Sunrise Series, a regular morning event open to the public that will help energize, inspire and set intentions for the week through yoga, meditation and movement instruction; and the UnCommon Ideas Series, which will bring visiting speakers across all disciplines to explore progressive topics.
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; a conference center that can be used to host small meetings and workshops; and more. Bringing together multiple fitness studios, open-air common areas, contemporary residential units, a luxury movie theater and a mélange of food and beverage options, the campus will set the foundation for a thriving, inspiring workplace.
The highly anticipated mixed-use campus will bring to life Platform One, Las Vegas’ first neighborhood food hall; trendsetting restaurants and cafes that follow the good food movement; and nearly 1,000 apartment residences in a walkable, micro community. Future phases will bring UnCommons to more than 500,000 square feet of modern office space, built with distinctive architectural features and the latest in safety innovations.
UnCommons, a first-of-its kind mixed-use development in southwest Las Vegas, is now under construction with a first phase opening planned for early 2022. The $400 million project is designed to fulfill the modern workforce’s desire for a workplace that enhances their lives through rich amenities, open space and connectivity. The stylized urban campus will be comprised of more than 500,000 square feet of modern office space with market-leading design and technology, more than 830 residential units, a venue that blends music and movies, a beer garden, trendsetting restaurants and cafes that follow the good food movement, health and fitness studios, a multi-purpose conference center, a pedestrian trail, public art and Platform One, a food hall showcasing the best of the local food scene. The development will be the first of its kind in Nevada to be built by the standards for WELL™ Certification, which are the highest third-party endorsement of a building’s performance and protection of employee health. UnCommons is also pursuing certification by Green Globes®, a nationally recognized green rating assessment, guidance and certification program.
