"We appreciate the cooperative efforts of City officials and the Las Vegas City Council's approvals of our business terms, which will propel our project forward. Our team, together with the City, has worked hard to come to agreement on terms for the WJC, a project that will create thousands of non-gaming jobs, and bring financial rewards to the City." "This will be an important part of Union Park, along with the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute, the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, the Charlie Palmer Hotel, and the Access Medical-Kimpton Hotel projects, that together will create an exciting experience for everyone who visits or does business there," said Las VegasMayor Oscar B. Goodman. "This will be a one-of-a-kind jewelry industry hub in the western hemisphere," said WJC Managing Director Bill Boyajian. "With a magnificent tower comprising both wholly-owned, class-A office condominiums and ultra-luxury residential condominiums, a retail center open to the public, advanced security systems, and a designated Foreign Trade Zone, jewelry business leaders will have many strategic advantages, with the added benefit of the Las Vegas location." The DDA outlines the requirements and conditions for Probity International to purchase the land and build the World Jewelry Center. The OPA sets forth the terms under which the developer and the City Redevelopment Agency will share in property tax revenues generated by the WJC over the next twenty years.
