The master-planned development of Summerlin is hosting a community-wide open house from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 5 and 6.
Billed as America’s Biggest Open House, the event features more than 60 model homes in 18 neighborhoods by 11 home builders – all located in Summerlin.
According to Nikki Liesse, director of marketing for The Howard Hughes Corp., an affiliate of General Growth Properties Inc. and developer of Summerlin, this is the second semi-annual event of its kind in the master-planned community.
“America’s Biggest Open House was a huge success last fall, so we’re repeating it. It gives prospective home buyers an opportunity to tour a wide variety of model homes in a short period of time — all while enjoying a festive atmosphere, free balloons and refreshments. It’s a fun and easy way to see all that’s new in Summerlin.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of two $500 Mother’s Day shopping sprees, courtesy of General Growth Properties, or dinner for 10 at Maggiano’s Little Italy. The shopping sprees are good at Fashion Show, The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, The Boulevard Mall and Meadows Mall.
The participating neighborhoods are located in six actively selling villages — The Canyons, The Mesa, The Paseos, Summerlin Centre, The Vistas and The Ridges. Condominiums and homes in those villages range from 684 to 4,000 square feet and are priced from the high $100,000s to more than $1 million. Home styles include single-, two- and three-story homes, lofts, condominiums and townhomes. Maps are available in ads appearing in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
According to Kevin Orrock, top division executive of The Howard Hughes Corp., the community still has more than 7,500 of its 22,500 acres left to develop with completion of the residential areas scheduled for 2025.
Of the 30 villages Summerlin will have at build-out, 11 are complete and six are under active development.
Summerlin has been a household name in Southern Nevada for more than 15 years. The community is now home to nearly 95,000 residents who live in more than 37,600 homes, townhomes, condominiums and apartments. As many as 22,000 people work in Summerlin’s many retail centers, business parks, medical centers and schools.
“Over the next 15 or so years, Summerlin will continue to unfold to its master plan,” Orrock said. “A southbound drive along Hualapai Way today reveals that the Summerlin influence is becoming more and more evident — even as far south as Tropicana where The Mesa village is under active development with homes already occupied and Bishop Gorman High School nearing completion. Today, Summerlin rims the entire western edge of the Las Vegas Valley.”
Developed by The Howard Hughes Corp., an affiliate of General Growth Properties Inc., Summerlin began to take shape in 1990 and by 1992, ranked as the country’s best-selling master-planned community, a distinction it held for a decade, according ot Orrock.
The community is home to more than 100 neighborhood and village parks, more than 150 completed miles of the Summerlin Trail System, 19 public and private schools, houses of worship, shopping centers, medical and cultural facilities, business parks and more than 60 model homes.
