For businesses looking to relocate, expand or start fresh in a new location, finding a property that makes business sense can be a tall order. Affordable land is oftentimes limited to remote reaches of the country, far from interstates, ports or other vital infrastructure. When these amenities are available, businesses frequently have to grapple with seemingly insurmountable taxes, restrictions and red tape, giving even the most seasoned companies second thoughts about moving elsewhere.


To hear directly from a local developer, like Stable Development, on why they have chosen to call Henderson home, visit us at the ICSC Western Deal Making Conference on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 3 pm (booth #2437). The Henderson Economic Development team will be at the booth for the entirety of the conference from Oct. 8-10, so please come by at anytime. If you cannot attend ICSC, please reach out to Barbra Coffee, City of Henderson Director of Economic Development and Tourism, for more information.


Our Competitive Advantage

Located just 15 minutes from Las Vegas, Henderson forms the southern edge of the Las Vegas Valley, covering over 100 square miles between Lake Las Vegas to the east and Interstate 15 to the west. Now topping 310,000 people in a metro area of 2.1 million, Henderson is an ideal location for your next retail expansion. With almost 900,000 square feet of planned retail space, Henderson garners approximately one-third of future business development for the entire region.


Location Matters

The opening of a second Costco- anchored shopping center this November is evidence that Henderson is a hot market. West Henderson is also an emerging industrial hotspot. Spanning more than 600 acres between Henderson Executive Airport and the I-15 corridor, West Henderson boasts an 8-hour turnaround to Los Angeles ports.


Low or NO Taxes

Henderson was rated as a Very Low Cost City in the 2016-2017 Kosmont-Rose Cost of Doing Business Survey, which analyzes six types of taxes including business license levies, property tax, sales tax, and utility use taxes for more than 300 cities nationwide. However, having the lowest city property tax rate in Nevada and no state income tax whatsoever are just the tip of the iceberg.


Shipping Advantages

Henderson’s list of business advantages includes proximity to five major markets, key interstates, shipping ports and expansive air service, which gives retailers the ability to ship and receive goods quickly and easily. Shipping out of Henderson is also cost-effective. Pre-existing shipping contracts in and out of Las Vegas means that Henderson businesses can save money by transporting their products on empty trucks returning to their destinations.

Development Services Center

Developers are also directly benefited by Henderson’s Development Services Center, powered by a team from seven city departments which help fast-track the planning, reviewing, inspection and permitting phases of new developments. Developers can rest assured that the City of Henderson has their back when it comes to simplifying what can oftentimes be an immensely complicated process.

Thanks to its bountiful and diverse available properties, business incentives and accommodating local government, Henderson makes the transition to the Las Vegas Valley seamless for companies of all sizes and industries. When coupled with its proximity to an international airport, freeways, major ports and markets, Henderson’s location allows those companies to thrive.
