LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials break ground today on a new 10-story Federal Justice Tower in Las Vegas that will hold offices for the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Attorney.
More than 300 workers will be employed during construction, and officials say the 117,000-square-foot building will bring 170 permanent jobs to the downtown corridor.
The two federal agencies have signed 15-year leases on the office space.
The building also will feature a six-story secure parking garage.
