DraftKings Inc is to open a new office location in Las Vegas where the company expects to eventually have an expanded team of more than 1,000 employees.
The 90,000-square-foot technology hub at UnCommons, Matter Real Estate Group’s 40-acre modern workplace and stylized mixed-use community, comes to Southwest Las Vegas in early 2022.
“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,” said Co-Founder and President North America Matt Kalish.
“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, closely modelling its Boston headquarters, complete with a customized DraftKings-branded floor plan and collaborative workspaces, as well as access to a variety of entertainment and workstations.
Designed by IA Interior Architects, the office will comprise more than 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.
The office will also provide the infrastructure to offer unmatched amenities for employees, including onsite haircuts and manicures/pedicures, a prayer suite and more.
“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,” said Matter Real Estate Group Partner Jim Stuart.
“We look forward to providing an elevated workplace experience for their team that will foster meaningful relationships, increase performance and spark new ideas.”
