Raiders Flip Las Vegas Practice Facility for Big Profit

The Las Vegas Raiders are heading into the offseason with a win in the real estate market after they sold their Henderson, Nev., headquarters and practice facility for a monstrous profit.

The Raiders are selling the 55 acres of land near the Henderson Executive Airport to Chicago-based Mesirow Financial for $191 million, or 30 times the $6.05 million that the team paid for the property back in 2018. The Raiders will now lease the location back from Mesirow.

Some argue that the Raiders’ move is a massive real estate flip at the taxpayers’ expense.          

According to public records seen by Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Raiders entered into a ground lease at the site and subleased it right back, indicating the team still owns, but is now renting, the land underneath the complex.

The Raiders are in the process of finishing the estimated $75 million facility and won’t move in until right before the start of the 2020 season, but the sale of the property will help cover the cost of building the facility.

After closing on the sale of the property to Mesirow, the Raiders agreed to a 29-year lease, with seven 10-year extension options.
