Best Hope for North Las Vegas


In recent years, the threat of bankruptcy and state takeover has loomed over North Las Vegas, as it reeled from a seemingly endless barrage of setbacks. Enter Faraday Future. In December, the electric automaker announced plans to build a reported $1 billion factory on 3 million square feet at Apex Industrial Park. Governor Brian Sandoval told Vegas Seven in January that the company not only paves the way to build badly needed infrastructure to support future growth, but it also will have an estimated $85 billion economic impact in its first 20 years with the factory staffing up to 4,500 employees. A partnership with the Clark County School District and College of Southern Nevada called Workforce Innovations for a New Nevada (WINN) is already funneling students into classes that will give them the skills needed to work at Faraday.
