The year 2017 was one for the record books for The Howard Hughes Corp. and its Summerlin master-planned community with a number of milestone developments that include an emerging focus on sports and business, strong home sales and the addition of several new major amenities, including schools, parks and a golf course.
Community development highlights for 2017 included:
■ The opening of 10 new neighborhoods and two new villages – Stonebridge and Reverence by Pulte Homes;
■ The addition of two new public elementary schools in The Cliffs and Paseos villages, bringing the total number of schools in Summerlin to 25;
■ Major milestone developments in the Downtown Summerlin area, including completion of City National Arena – practice facility of the Vegas Golden Knights, the announcement of Las Vegas Ballpark – a 10,000-capacity baseball stadium that will be the home of the Las Vegas 51s, commencement of construction on a second Class-A office tower and the long awaited opening of Crate and Barrel;
■ Commencement of construction on a 180,000-square-foot campus for Aristocrat Technologies, a global gaming leader;
■ Completion of the community’s 10TH golf course, The Summit, a private championship course by Tom Fazio at the centerpiece of Summerlin’s newest luxury enclave by the same name; and
■ The opening of Fox Hill Park, an 18-acre adventure- and play-themed park with more than 20 unique play structures and disc golf.
According to Kevin T. Orrock, president of Summerlin for The Howard Hughes Corp., the community reached new home sales levels not experienced in more than 10 years since 2006, and Summerlin is expected to finish on the 10 list of best-selling master-planned communities by national real estate consultant, RCLCO.
“Sports are also at the center of Summerlin’s evolution with the Vegas Golden Knights now calling Downtown Summerlin home and a future baseball stadium that will become the home of the Las Vegas 51s to be built adjacent City National Arena. This is a very exciting time for Summerlin as its 400-acre urban core – Downtown Summerlin – is truly taking shape as a sports, entertainment and retail destination to be enjoyed by everyone in Southern Nevada.”
According to Orrock, demand for Class-A office space in the heart of vibrant suburban communities supports a growing trend to locate workplaces closer to home to shorten commute times and improve quality of life, and Summerlin is no exception. “Two Summerlin is another Class-A office tower in the Downtown Summerlin area and Aristocrat’s new campus near the 215 Beltway and Town Center Drive, are proof of that trend.”
