MORE THAN A DOWNTOWN,
THE HEART OF A COMMUNITY.
Since the early 1990’s, Summerlin’s Downtown has been identified as a 400-acre parcel located in the heart of the community. Upon completion, this area will serve as the urban core of Summerlin where commerce, entertainment and retail activities are seamlessly integrated with cultural, civic and high-density residential land uses. As the population of Summerlin has grown to over 100,000 residents representing nearly half of the population projected at build-out, the Downtown area has grown as well. Approximately one-half of the area is now built, open and operating. The momentum of the Downtown continues to accelerate with several new uses either in development or close to breaking ground.
Bounded by the 215- Western Beltway, Charleston Boulevard, Town Center Drive and Sahara Avenue, this developing urban district is really beginning to unfold. Properties that currently comprise this development, Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa, Lifetime Athletic, City National Bank/Pavilion Building, Constellation, One Summerlin (Class-A LEED certified office tower) and the City National Arena-NHL practice facility serve the community in a variety of ways and have been all met with enthusiastic response on a community wide and regional level. Further enhancing the diversity of the Downtown area is the recent announcement of the new Las Vegas Ballpark that will be home to the city’s Triple-A baseball team, Two Summerlin (152,000SF Class-A office tower) both located alongside the recently opened City National Arena.
The first residential development in the Downtown, Constellation, opened in the Summer of 2016. Constellation is boutique; luxury apartment living that has set the standard for urban living in Downtown Summerlin. Ground breaking for the next high-end apartment living project is expected to occur before year-end 2018.
The Downtown Summerlin area is home to a 106-acre open-air fashion, dining and entertainment destination that experienced over 16 million visitors in 2017. Visitation is up nearly 5% in 2017 and expected to continue growing. Retailers include Macy’s, Dillard’s, Apple, Crate & Barrel, Dave & Buster’s and Trader Joe’s. The continued success of this venue will help fuel future development and increase the inherent value of all areas within the community.
Downtown Summerlin is also becoming known as the place for sports. Just last year, the Vegas Golden Knights, the city’s new NHL expansion franchise, put down roots in the community by opening City National Arena, the team’s practice facility and administrative headquarters that is accessible to the public via a second rink and events and activities catering to the city’s growing hockey fan base. This spring, ground will be broken on Las Vegas Ballpark, a 10,000-fan capacity Triple-A ballpark that will become the new home of the Las Vegas 51s, a member of the Pacific Coast League (PCL). Downtown Summerlin is also a place to work with two Class A office towers that encompass a combined 380,000 square feet, and more than 4,000 residences are planned in the Downtown Summerlin area to create a high-density urban residential community comprised of apartments, condominiums, lofts and brownstones.
