With Nevada working on reigning in the health crisis and stimulating the economy at the same time, Governor Sisolak announced stricter restrictions this month: Both private and public gatherings are limited, and businesses must operate at a reduced capacity of 25 percent, down from 50 percent. Meanwhile, the Las Vegas commercial real estate market forged ahead. While industrial assets continue to perform well on the leasing, development and transactions side, investors also poured capital into office and self storage properties.
