Last week, City of Las Vegas Ward 5 Councilman Cedric Crear hosted the groundbreaking for a high-tech community center and park makeover at Charleston Heights Park.
Knit worked closely with the project team at the City of Las Vegas to develop a full scope of work for the project including a “tech” community center and a remodeled park to include various programmatic elements. Numerous meetings have been held with our project team with the City of Las Vegas and Knit.
The building is designed to be a single-story structure that is a total of 6,155 SF located within the roughly 3.9 acres that make up the current Charleston Heights Park. The structure is divided into a Community building and a Restroom structure that shares its structure with the Community Center. The building consists primarily of a S.T.E.A.M. room, a Flex Use Classroom, an Esports/Virtual Reality room, and a Multi-media room. The Park component of the project is designed to incorporate CLV standard for Smart Cities and include numerous programmatic elements. In addition, the park is designed to include new walking paths, a playground featuring equipment that lends itself to the technology theme of project, and a full basketball court.
