The master-planned community of Summerlin® has long been recognized for its environmental stewardship marked by its focus on water conservation, preservation and incorporation of natural areas into arroyos and parks, revegetation of open areas, and special lighting to reduce nighttime glare and light pollution – to name just a few of its earth-friendly initiatives. The Howard Hughes Corporation® understands that homebuyers today are looking for builders that incorporate environmentally conscious features into their homes to conserve precious resources and reduce environmental impact. It’s no surprise that the community’s homebuilders offer many environmentally friendly design features in their homes.
