The Shops at Summerlin is part of a planned urban center to be known as Downtown Summerlin, which will serve the entire Las Vegas Valley. When complete, it will include retail, entertainment, office, hotel and multi-family residential, designed to create a vibrant, walkable urban core within the 22,500-acre master planned community. 

Construction began in the middle of 2013 on the expansive, 106-acre, 1.6 million-square-foot development which represents the first phase in the future downtown. When complete, The Shops at Summerlin will feature more than 125 stores and restaurants in a streetscape shopping environment with pedestrian thoroughfares and dynamic storefronts in the center of the award-winning Summerlin master planned community. Located just east of the 215 Beltway, between Sahara and Charleston Avenues, the development will also include a nine-story office building and is expected to open in late 2014.
