The Arroyo was master-planned with an uncommon degree of design to set it apart from other large commercial projects in Las Vegas. Centering on a natural arroyo, the project offers a walking beltway which runs through the property, with interconnecting foot bridges and seating throughout the park.
Every detail has been thoughtfully master-planned, from the architecture, signage, monumentation and landscaped palette. The facades of the office buildings boast many natural elements, such as limestone, copper and stacked stone.
The retail buildings are concrete tilt-up and block construction, with upscale exteriors of stone, glass and metal. All buildings were designed to be energy efficient with a focus on sustainability for the future.
