DraftKings To Open Las Vegas HQ

DraftKings Inc. will open a new headquarters in Las Vegas, where the business aims to eventually have a workforce of more than 1,000 people.

UnCommons, Matter Real Estate Group’s 40-acre modern workplace and styled mixed-use community, will open a 90,000-square-foot technology hub in Southwest Las Vegas in early 2022.

Co-Founder and President North America Matt Kalish said: “Our new office space and Las Vegas expansion further exemplifies DraftKings’ investment in its employees and the future of the company, as well as the local community.

‘world-class workplace environment’

“Our goal is to create another world-class workplace environment that will foster DraftKings’ innovation, further bolster our local presence, and deepen community involvement. With these lofty aspirations, we were thrilled to discover that UnCommons mirrors these high standards.”

The firm’s new Las Vegas office will be the firm’s second largest, with a bespoke DraftKings-branded floor plan and collaborative workplaces, as well as access to a selection of entertainment and workstations, similar to its Boston headquarters.

The office, which was designed by IA Interior Architects, will have over 130 dedicated sports trading desks surrounded by full multimedia walls, a 7,500-square-foot cafeteria and event space, a custom casino training pit, a 500-square-foot interactive putt-view putting green, private and public outdoor spaces, and mothers’ rooms.

Unrivalled staff benefits

The office will also have the infrastructure to provide unrivalled staff benefits, such as onsite haircuts, manicures, and pedicures, as well as a prayer room.

Matter Real Estate Group Partner Jim Stuart said: “We are thrilled to provide the exceptional craftsmanship, incredible location and technological infrastructure found within the UnCommons community to deliver the caliber of space DraftKings is looking for in its second largest office in the United States.

“We look forward to providing an elevated workplace experience for their team that will foster meaningful relationships, increase performance and spark new ideas.”
