The city of North Las Vegas announced Tuesday that its new City Hall building will open for business on Nov. 21.

The last City Council meeting at the old City Hall will be Nov. 16, and the last day city agencies will conduct business there is Nov. 17, spokeswoman Juliet Casey said.

The new, 210,000-square-foot, nine-story building at 2250 Las Vegas Boulevard sits just down the street from the current City Hall, built in 1966.

In making the announcement, Mayor Shari Buck said she was pleased the new building is opening on time and under budget. The original budget for the project was set at $142 million, but construction came in at $127 million.

“The city is thrilled to occupy this magnificent building and offer improved customer service to residents and stakeholders,” Buck said.

The new City Council chambers will seat 318 people, more than double the 150-person capacity of the current chambers. It will also be the city’s first LEED-certified building.

The building will house all city services under one roof, including the utilities department, public works and the permit application center.

Previously, the city housed several departments in modular building surrounding the current City Hall.

A grassy civic plaza, funded by a $6.3 million grant from the Bureau of Land Management, will host outdoor special events.
