The moment everyone has been waiting for is almost here: On Oct. 9, The Howard Hughes Corp. plans to officially unveil Downtown Summerlin.
Meanwhile, it has announced the latest group of tenants. These stores and eateries — some of them the first in the Las Vegas Valley market — join the mix of regionally and nationally known brands set to open this fall and winter.
“Downtown Summerlin will be the ultimate destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in Southern Nevada, and we’re happy to see the excitement about this development building throughout the entire Las Vegas Valley,” said Andrew Ciarrocchi, senior general manager of Downtown Summerlin. “Along with our other name-brand tenants, these new retailers will help us further create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community.”
Downtown Summerlin has added Aerosoles, Express, Forever 21, Guess, Hot Topic, J Jill, L’Core Paris, L’Occitane en Provence, Lululemon Athletica, Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Perfumania, Sunglass Hut, Torrid, U.S. Polo Assn. and Zumiez. Other new tenants include Bobby Wheat Gallery, Ethan Allen and LoveSac, along with Build-A-Bear Workshop and the first Nevada location for The Toy Box.
Under personal services, Downtown Summerlin has added Charming Nails, My Wireless (an AT&T authorized retailer), Sprint, Tiger Lily Florist and T-Mobile. Champs and House of Hoops by Foot Locker are new sporting goods stores to be featured.
In addition to restaurants and casual eateries already announced, expect Bonanno’s New York Pizzeria, California Pizza Kitchen, Earl of Sandwich, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Grape Street Cafe & Wine Bar, Marketplace, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Panda Express and Trattoria Reggiano. Dining options new to Nevada are Gelato Messina, Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, Pancho’s Mexican Restaurant, Pieology Pizzeria, Ribs & Burgers, Rice Republic and Wonderland Bakery.
Shift Hospitality also plans to bring MTO Cafe to the shopping experience. The Downtown Summerlin location, which will be a walk-up concept, will be its second, after the downtown Las Vegas restaurant debuted in 2013. MTO (Made To Order) Cafe offers breakfast, lunch and brunch items.
“Our guests in downtown Las Vegas have truly backed our vision since we opened here just 10 months ago, and it is their support that has allowed us to take this next step to bring the concept to more people in the community,” said Shift Hospitality partner Matthew Moore.
Station Casinos operates the adjacent Red Rock Resort at West Charleston Boulevard and the 215 Beltway. Vice president of corporate communications Lori Nelson said many Station Casinos employees would cross the street to shop after work.
“We have over 2,000 team members here and about 400 at our corporate building, which is right across the way,” Nelson said. “What a great thing for our team members to have, that they can go shopping after work or on their break or do whatever they want over there (at Downtown Summerlin). And there are a lot of Summerlin residents who work for us, so it’s a win-win for this area. It’s within my one-mile bubble, so that’s even better.”
