Southern Land Co.

Southern Land Co. (SLC) has broken ground on two luxury apartment buildings at Symphony Park in Las Vegas. The new buildings will expand SLC’s presence in the Symphony Park development, where the firm completed Auric, one of the first residential communities, in 2021.

The two new apartment buildings will total more than 730,000 square feet and will bring 545 additional luxury apartment homes to downtown Las Vegas.

Adjacent to Grand Central Parkway directly across from World Market Center Las Vegas and just north of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, Symphony Park II and III are set on two contiguous parcels totaling more than 5 acres. Considered the cultural heart of Las Vegas, Symphony Park is a 61-acre mixed-use community.

The five-story Symphony Park II will offer 275 one- and two-bedroom residences from 570 to 1,297 square feet, while the 22-story Symphony Park III will offer 270 one- and two-bedroom residences, along with penthouses, ranging from 570 to 3,160 square feet. Both apartment buildings will include a resident lounge; a concierge; a dog run; a fitness center and yoga room; a pool and hot tub; a pool lounge with an outdoor bar, grills, and TVs; cabanas; and bike storage and a tuneup shop.

Offering residents panoramic views, Symphony Park III’s pool deck will be located on the ninth floor. The ninth floor will also feature an outdoor fitness terrace and a resident lounge with a bar. The building will include multiple terraces, high-end unit finishes, and over 16,500 square feet of commercial and retail space on the first floor.

Estimated to take 27 months for completion of both projects, Dallas-based GDA Architects designed the buildings. Burke Construction Group is the general contractor for Symphony Park II, and T.B. Penick & Sons is the general contractor for Symphony Park III.

“Downtown Las Vegas has long been a thriving mecca of hospitality, business activity, and innovation, especially within Symphony Park, the area’s premier development site,” says mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, city of Las Vegas. “We are thrilled to welcome two additional Southern Land Co. apartment buildings to Symphony Park, bringing needed residential opportunities to downtown.”

At the groundbreaking, SLC founder and CEO Tim Downey announced a $5,000 gift to The Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas LIFE to support the Going Green for Good Health initiative, which is committed to planting 60,000-plus trees by 2050 in areas of the city most affected by the urban heat island. The donation is consistent with SLC’s passion for intentional horticulture design and beautification of the communities where the company builds. The gift will purchase 10 park-ready trees, which will be planted in an area of the city where trees are lacking.

“The city’s tree initiative is making a real difference to help build shade canopies and provide much-needed greenery in areas of the city most impacted by extreme temperatures,” says Ivette Fernandez, chair of The Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas LIFE. “This unexpected and generous gift from Southern Land Co. to The Mayor’s Fund to underwrite more park-ready trees beautifully supports our mission to improve quality of life. We are so grateful!”

Symphony Park II and III are expected to welcome residents in spring 2025.
