The city of North Las Vegas has broken ground on a new complex that will offer international businesses and their workers a place to live and work simultaneously.

"This will be a great boost in our economy," says Mayor Lee.  

The city has recently been bracing for a financial comeback, bringing in major companies like Faraday Future and Hyperloop One. Vegas Trade Village hopes to jump on board with that.  

The Vegas Trade Village will be a one-stop shop for those looking to make Las Vegas the hub of their corporations, but the there are potential concerns.

The site is directly across the street from Republic Services, and consequently, the area can see some trash buildup and have its smelly days.

Right now, the developer and his team say they're working with Republic Services to make sure this isn't a problem. 

"I've heard the concerns, and I don't think they're valid," says Matthew Callister, the attorney for the developer.  

The developer and Republic Services have been working closely, and representatives with the trash service say they have policies and procedures in place to cut back on both the blowing trash and the smell.  

In a statement, Republic Services said they "are committed to being a good neighbor." 

With multi-million dollar transactions expected to take place just across the street, the developer hopes they can keep it that way. 

"They've been working with us to make sure that our operations don't disturb them, and vice versa," says Callister.
