In May, Las Vegas’ commercial real estate took some steps forward. Although the city’s casinos are slated to open June 4, the metro’s hospitality industry will likely face challenges for quite some time. Despite myriad challenges, the city continued to grow in importance as a regional distribution hub, breathing life into its industrial sector, both in terms of development and sales. Here’s our May list of Las Vegas must-reads:
