The Robert T. Eglet Advocacy Center
The Robert T. Eglet Advocacy Center opened its doors on March 19, 2014, in Downtown Las Vegas. The building was constructed on the site of C.P. "Pop" Squires' former residence. Squires, known as "The Father of Las Vegas", spent 50 years building up the city and was the editor, publisher and owner of The Las Vegas Age.
The 47,000 square-foot, green-energy and water efficient building features car charging stations in a 161 space parking garage, a full gym with showers, four conference rooms on each floor and personal offices with balconies that offer picturesque views of Las Vegas.
The building also features a mock courtroom fully equipped with sound detection cameras that can be accessed by any mobile device. The mock courtroom not only helps attorneys prep for trials but was created as a way to give back to UNLV and the William S. Boyd School of Law. Students of the school are able to practice and host mock trials in the courtroom.
The building, which was designed by Eglet Adams Senior Partners Robert and Tracy Eglet, was honored with the 2015 Spotlight Award for Office Building of the Year. The award was presented by the NAIOP Southern Nevada Chapter which is the leading organization for developers, owners and professionals of office, industrial, retail and mixed-use real estate.
