A man working on the construction of the Shops at Summerlin near Red Rock Resort fell and died Tuesday morning.
Las Vegas police said they received a call at 8:46 a.m. reporting a man had fallen from the Howard Hughes Corp. project.
The 1.6 million-square-foot Shops at Summerlin is being developed on a 106-acre retail and commercial site along the Las Vegas Beltway south of Red Rock Resort. Renamed from Summerlin Centre, the Shops at Summerlin is slated to feature 125 shops and a nine-story office building. It’s scheduled to open in late 2014.
Construction on the center was halted in 2008 when its original owner, General Growth Properties, underwent a Chapter 11 bankruptcy because of the recession. The Howard Hughes Corp. is the current developer of the estimated $1 billion project.
OSHA is investigating the accident.
