U.S. Bank Closes on $4.8 Million in Financing for Historic Westside School

Las Vegas – U.S. Bank closed on $4.8 million in New Markets Tax Credit equity to help renovate the historic Westside School, the city’s first racially integrated public school and a highly significant site for Native Americans and African Americans.

The $15 million renovation will create space for retailers, offices and a cafe and retain KCEP radio. New landscaping and space for public art exhibitions and a display of the circa-1923 school’s historic significance are also part of the rehabilitation.

The project is expected to become a model for historic renovation in West Las Vegas. U.S. Bank’s U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation investment was made possible, in part, by using New Markets Tax Credit allocations provided by USBCDC’s community development entity and Las Vegas Community Investment Corporation.

Construction will generate 64 jobs and the project will provide 24 permanent jobs when it is complete in June 2016.
