An Arizona-based company plans to relocate to Las Vegas and construct a massive, $1.2 billion athlete-focused complex, Z Athlete Village.

Z Athlete Factory said it plans to move from Scottsdale, AZ to Las Vegas pending construction of its new headquarters, called the Z Athlete Village. Zig Ziegler, the CEO, described the village as a hub for “athletic training, sports performance and events for competition.”

Z Athlete Factory calls itself a leading provider in artificial intelligence-driven athletic solutions, and it says it aims to use A.I. to revolutionize the athletic industry.

As for where in Las Vegas the company plans to build all this, Z Athlete Factory has narrowed its options to two potential sites after “nearly purchasing close to 30 acres last summer.” The company expects to have its final site selection under contract within 30 days.

“After an extensive evaluation process, Las Vegas emerged as the perfect location for Z Athlete Village,” Ziegler said in a release announcing the company’s relocation. “We are thrilled to announce our relocation and planned launch of Z Athlete Village, a revolutionary hub for athletic training, sports performance and events for competition.”

Z Athlete Factory’s founders say their vision of relocating to Las Vegas began during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Renderings of the proposed Z Athlete Village show two residential towers, which Z Athlete Factory refers to as “condotels” for amateur and professional athletes to reside in while training.

The company is also seeking investors for the planned construction of more than 1,000 “condotel” units at Z Athlete Village, calling it a “unique investment opportunity for those looking to be part of the future of sports in Las Vegas.”

Z Athlete Factory wants to complete all phases of the project by mid-2028, “just before the Olympic Games in Los Angeles,” the company stated.
