Indoors meets outdoors at 22 Parkside

Blue Heron Living has sold eight lots at 22 Parkside, a $20 million gated community of loft-style homes on five acres at Cimarron Road and Laredo Street in western Las Vegas.

Lot premiums started from $20,000 and go up to $100,000. Base price for the 3,479-square-foot Sage model at 22 Parkside is $695,000; base price for the 3,820-square-foot Indigo model is and $740,000.

Blue Heron principal Tyler Jones said flexible floor plans integrate both indoor and outdoor living areas, including rooftop skydecks that offer views of the Strip and Red Rock Canyon. A private footpath leads to neighboring Old Spanish Trail Park.

The 22 single-family loft homes feature 20-foot ceilings, eight-foot doors, ceramic tile floors and showers, Kohler plumbing fixtures and GE Profile appliances.

Blue Heron is committed to green building, incorporating energy efficiency, passive solar design, building materials and color selections into design and construction.

The company successfully completed its first project, Stone Canyon luxury lofts, at Buffalo Drive and Del Rey Avenue. Construction on the $22 million project began in October 2005. Dax Contracting was the general contractor.

Blue Heron recently received a Gold Nugget Award of Merit for its Sage model at Stone Canyon. The award, sponsored by Pacific Coast Builders Conference and Builder magazine, recognizes creative achievements in architectural design and land use planning.

Jones said 22 Parkside offers the same design that was so popular at Stone Canyon along with improved options such as elevators, basements, extended lofts and landscaped backyards.

“Just a few more things that differentiate us from the rest of the market, things that are rarely found in other communities,” he said. “Elevators, basements. They’re tough. Builders stay away from them because they slow down the production schedule.”

Blue Heron is also developing Stone Canyon South, eight loft-style homes at St. Rose Parkway and Las Vegas Boulevard. The project is scheduled for completion in March.

The development, about six miles west of Rachel, is ideal for retirees, Nevada Test Site workers, telecommuters, home-business owners and “anyone that wants to escape the heat and congestion of Las Vegas,” Toreson said.
