Tropical Distribution Center, Sephora
Tropical Distribution Center is in the city of North Las Vegas with immediate access to Interstates 15 and 215 via the new Tropical Interchange. After evaluating 18 sites across multiple markets, Sephora chose North Las Vegas because of the proximity to major transportation hubs. The new facility, their fifth in the United States, allows Sephora to reach 97% of the country within two days and 60% of the country in one day. Access to talent was another benefit. The 715,000-square-foot, 40-acre facility accommodates up to 1,000 full-time employees who fulfill approximately 35,000 orders for their e-commerce customers and retail stores. Construction began in July of 2018 and was completed in May of 2019. The conditioned building features 36-foot ceiling heights and a moment-resisting frame structural system.
