Safe Life Defense and Carmine’s Pizza to Call Matter Park @ West Henderson Home


Matter Real Estate Group, a community-minded development firm, has announced that Matter Park @ West Henderson is now 98% leased with the addition of two new tenants: Safe Life Defense and Carmine’s Pizza Kitchen.

The majority of leases have been signed during the last six months, demonstrating that the modern, high-image office and warehouse business complex remains in high demand even during the pandemic.   

Safe Life Defense will lease the entirety of Building 3 at Matter Park @ West Henderson. With a total of 137,000-square-feet, the space will be built with the custom elements necessary for the Body Armor manufacturing company to continue its growth. Specializing in gear for first responders, security, police and  responsible civilians, Safe Life Defense was born and raised in Las Vegas and has no intentions of leaving. “Because of our exponential growth, the only option in the valley was a totally custom build,” said Nick Groat, CEO of Safe Life Defense. “Matter provided us with a space large enough for us to continue growing and is making the build an easy process. We didn’t ask for pizza close by but we are thrilled to have Carmine’s as a neighbor.”

Beginning summer of 2021, Carmine’s Pizza Kitchen will bring its authentic New York-style pizza to the tenants and neighbors of Matter Park @ West Henderson in a 3,266-square-foot space. In addition to pizza, the restaurant will serve sandwiches, salads, pasta and desserts along with beer and wine, subject to liquor license approval, in an indoor dining room and patio connected by a roll up garage door. A favorite of the Las Vegas community, Carmine’s has followed family recipes handed down for generations in their valley restaurants since 1976.

“These two tenants represent the diverse mix of companies we have coming to Matter Park @ West Henderson,” said Tom van Betten, vice president of Matter Real Estate Group. “Bringing a restaurant and courtyard to an industrial park is unheard of but it was important to us as to have a food and beverage as an amenity for our tenants as part of our commitment to build not just buildings but communities. Carmine’s brings the convenience of onsite dining and takeout, plus it will be a great setting for our tenants to meet for lunch or happy hour. Safe Life Defense is a local, fast-growing company that exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit. We are thrilled to have Carmine’s and Safe Life as two of our final tenants at this incredible business park.” 

Previously announced the Las Vegas Raiderettes’ 20,000-square-foot headquarters is in the 300,000-square-foot first phase of Matter Park @ West Henderson, which will be joined by an additional 200,000-square-feet in phase two, set to open summer 2022. When completed, the $90 million development will span 37 acres with seven buildings offering office, flex and showroom space, in addition to warehouse and distribution space.

Matter Real Estate is developing several projects in the Las Vegas Valley, including the company’s much-anticipated UnCommons project, a fully financed, first-of-its kind mixed-use development breaking ground this spring in southwest Las Vegas. The $400-million development is designed for the modern workforce’s desire for a workplace that enhances their lives through rich amenities, open space and connectivity. The company completed Matter Business Park @ Warm Springs in 2019 and Matter Logistics Center @ West Cheyenne this fall. Currently, Matter has more than $500 million in development projects underway in Las Vegas and other major cities including Phoenix, San Diego and Austin, Texas.
