Josh Curran (URBS ’09) on Vegas Revitalization

As a part of his work with Resort Gaming Group, alum Josh Curran (URBS '09) has been working toward the revitalization of downtown Las Vegas. His two projects include Nevada's first pop-up parklet and affordable downtown housing aimed at local city employees. The idea is to create a more active and pedestrian oriented downtown environment. As Josh puts it, "What is lacking in downtown is diversity of products ... Our goal is to try and solve the market void by offering all different types of products and price points … to appeal to a larger base of folks wanting to live downtown.” More information about the projects can be found at the links above.
