NLV mayor helps Pardee celebrate its 60th year


New North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee and his wife, Marilyn Lee, have fond memories of life with their seven children in the Pardee master-planned community of Eldorado on the northern rim of the Las Vegas Valley.

“Eldorado has great family neighborhoods,” Marilyn Lee said. “We like the meandering streets and beautiful trees.

“We always felt very safe, even while walking late at night enjoying the evening breezes.”

According to John Lee, Pardee’s Eldorado helped set the standard for “what we want North Las Vegas to look like in the future.

“Pardee has a great name and reputation and has always been on the cutting edge of home building. I look forward to working with Pardee to continue to build this community to be the best it can be.”

Pardee Homes has built homes for more than 40,000 families in 150 neighborhoods and more than 10 master-planned communities in Southern Nevada, starting with College Park in North Las Vegas in 1952.

Pardee was chosen by the city of North Las Vegas to develop the 1,080-acre Eldorado site because of the company’s record of creating affordable and attractive communities, according to company officials.

Marked by a monument entry and wide landscaped parkway, the enclosed master-planned community is designed to be home to about 6,500 families at build out, offering a residential mix of homes from entry level to executive.

Since its introduction in 1990, Eldorado residents have developed a strong sense of community with family-oriented activities centered around Eldorado and Seastrand parks, as well as Lee Antonello Elementary School.

Named in honor of a Pardee executive, Antonello Elementary was built on land donated by Pardee. The two community parks were developed by Pardee and donated to the city of North Las Vegas.

Recognized as a national leader in environmentally responsible development, Pardee has earned national, state and local awards for building energy-efficient homes through the company’s LivingSmart program that save nearly 23,000 tons of greenhouse gases each year, according to company officials.

Pardee built the Ultimate Family Home — a near zero energy home — for the 2004 International Builders Show in Las Vegas, showcasing energy efficiencies.

The builder offers six new-home neighborhoods throughout the Las Vegas Valley, including four distinct LivingSmart Homes neighborhoods — Providence in northwest Las Vegas, Sandstone at Camino Eldorado and Ann Road and Eldorado Ridge and Eldorado Heights in the Eldorado master-planned community in North Las Vegas.

Other Pardee homes that include LivingSmart features are Durango Ranch, located near the intersection of Pebble and Cimarron roads in southwest Las Vegas, and the new Durango Trail neighborhood, which will open soon at Durango Ranch.
