Summerlin's Newest Neighborhoods Offer A New Grand Entrance
From its inception, designers of the master-planned community of Summerlin have employed a number of innovative land planning techniques that have created signature features now synonymous with the community’s brand, including roundabouts that facilitate and slow traffic and natural arroyos that serve dual use for parks and trails. The latest design technique is a grand and majestic shared entrance between adjacent neighborhoods adorning some of the newest neighborhoods in The Paseos village.
The shared entrances, which herald arrival at two adjacent neighborhoods, currently feature two styles, but both incorporate significant passive open space with up to 20,000 square feet of usable area. Lushly planted medians up to 50 feet wide, as opposed to the standard 12 foot wide medians with additional seating and ornate entry structures further enhance the arrival experience. According to Julie Cleaver, vice president- Summerlin, is the first in Las Vegas to employ this unique design detail that further distinguishes it from other communities in the valley. “Visually, these entrances are stunning because of the added open space, landscaping and monument markers. All of this is financially feasible by two homebuilders sharing expenses to create something grander and more impressive than the standard neighborhood entrance.”
In 2013, Woodside Homes opened the Andorra neighborhood immediately adjacent the Catalina neighborhood by Lennar, both sharing one gated entry point. Now, Summerlin is designing even more impressive shared entries that create a grand sense of arrival for residents. KB Homes’ Tevare neighborhood, currently selling and Capistrano by Ryland Homes, opening later this year, share a grand entrance. Segovia by Pulte Homes, also currently selling and Montecito by Toll Brothers will also share this new enhanced entry experience.
“We work diligently to conceptualize and design visually striking landscape features that maintain and further enhance the well-established upscale look of Summerlin,” said Cleaver. “Summerlin has already established itself as a community that stands apart from the rest. When people come home and drive through these impressive and significantly enhanced shared entries, they will see and feel the sense of arrival. This isn’t just a neighborhood; this is a carefully laid out master-plan. And anyone who lives here will be proud to call it home.”
“As the premier master plan in the Las Vegas valley, Summerlin has become known for fostering a culture that promotes an outdoor lifestyle in every neighborhood,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, director of marketing for Summerlin. “These shared entrances are not only beautiful gateways to our newest neighborhoods; they provide additional space for residents to enjoy the outdoors.”
