3 Necessities For An Organized Home And Life

Jamie LOVES in January — an organized home and life.

With the craze of the holiday season over, it’s time to sit back and relax — that is, after all your cleaning and organizing is done. Because, let’s be honest; there are many things that get overlooked and pushed back on your “to do” list. It’s time to enjoy the first month of the New Year by cleaning out your home, and therefore, your mind. Here are some of my favorite necessities for an organized home.

West Elm Modern Weave Storage Bins

Storage bins

Are you like me and have numerous of magazines piled up, but cannot seem to toss them out because you may want to look at them one day? Store your magazines properly by name and year of magazine. Storage bins do not always have to be clear plastic ones; so many companies make ones that look great in your office. West Elm and The Container Store make bins in all shapes, sizes and colors for your organizing pleasures.


Hermes Agenda


Because it’s a New Year, that means I get a new agenda! I cannot live without my agenda; I am so busy, it’s hard for me to remember where I have to be. I love the idea that I can just go to the day and see what appointments I have. It’s the best way for me to organize my life. So many of my favorite designers (like Hermès) make beautiful agendas; so do some research and buy your favorite.

Lafayette Chest by Baker Furniture

New dresser

The New Year is a great time to go through your closet and get rid of the items you haven’t worn in over one calendar year. Organize your clothing by buying yourself a new dresser for your bedroom, like this Lafayette Chest by Baker Furniture — and fix up your room while you’re at it!

This chest and others can be purchased through JAMIESHOP.COM.

Enjoy your new organized life and the New Year!

Vestar Development Investment

Vestar Development, Rockwood Capital Acquire LV Retail Center for $79M

Phoenix-based Vestar Development, in a joint venture with New York-based Rockwood Capital, is acquiring The District at Green Valley Ranch, a 384,107 SF landmark retail property located outside of Las Vegas, for $79M, the firms announced.

The all-cash deal, the city’s second largest commercial real estate investment transaction in three years, closed Friday, October 21.

“Now is a great time to invest in the Las Vegas retail real estate market, particularly in projects like this one,” says Rick Kuhle, president of Vestar Development. “This center has recently struggled, but we are confident and excited about stabilizing it over the coming year. We’re very bullish about these types of value-added investment opportunities and are aggressively seeking more properties like it in Las Vegas and throughout the West.”

We believe this is a compelling opportunity based upon the high quality of the center and the solid in-place cash flow,” says Joel Mayer, managing director at Rockwood Capital. “We have a longstanding relationship with Vestar and their extensive knowledge of this asset and market make them the ideal partner for this project.” 

Richard Walter, president, and Donald MacLellan, senior managing director, out of Faris Lee’s Irvine, Calif., headquarters, and Rob Moore, senior managing director in Faris Lee’s Las Vegas office represented the seller, LNR Partners, LLC. 

The District is located within Green Valley Ranch, a leading master-planned community located in the Black Mountain foothills, about 10 miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip.

Phase one of The District was developed in 2004 and encompasses 212,622 SF of retail and office space on the west side of Green Valley Parkway. The 21.54-acre property is comprised of 50 national and regional stores and restaurants; 88 luxury condominiums; and complementary office users. The shopping, dining, entertainment, residences and office space are joined via a pedestrian-friendly main street plaza and a central park. Phase one is 85% leased to several high-profile tenants including REI, Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Williams-Sonoma, Ann Taylor Loft, White House/Black Market, King’s Fish House and P.F. Chang’s.

Phase two of The District was developed in 2006 and totals 171,485 SF on 16.02 acres. The property consists of six buildings with a retail and office tenant mix. Phase two is 82% leased, anchored by Whole Foods and also including tenants such as West Elm and The Cheesecake Factory.
