welcome to the wild wild west.
What does Summerlin West entail?
The areas north of West Charleston and west of the 215 Beltway are Summerlin West. There are three existing villages, The Paseos, The Vistas, and Stonebridge… with many more to come on the roughly 5,000 remaining acres including Redpoint and Redpoint Square at Far Hills and the 215 Beltway, and Kestrel and Kestrel Commons at Lake Mead Boulevard and the 215 Beltway.
How many villages will Summerlin West include when complete?
Summerlin West is comprised of 14 villages (for SID purposes) and 12 neighborhood districts. Each neighborhood district is uniquely tied to the surrounding mountain views and geologic formations that extend into the site and are characterized by their own architectural and landscape style.
Key Verbiage 101 as we move West:
VILLAGE: Beyond the urban core, to the west, the community will open up to a variety of large villages, each with its own unique natural features and points of interest.
DISTRICT: These distinct character districts are organized around a vibrant urban core. The closer to the core, the higher the residential density and the more town-like the ambience. Located on the east side of Summerlin West, they are the first areas planned for development in the community.
NEIGHBORHOOD: Within the villages and districts, smaller areas will emerge, unified by their own character and landmarks. These neighborhoods will help break down the scale of the community into friendly, identifiable places with a clear sense of address.
URBAN CORE: The land dedicated to Summerlin West’s urban core will be developed in harmony with the needs of its neighbors – interesting places between home and the office that invite you to stop, hang out, catch up with friends, a quiet corner to do some work, a vibrant square, or maybe even a place to call home. Taking “town” to a higher level, the urban core will be an original and lively town center easily accessible from the trails and parks just outside your back door. Think of it as the yin to Downtown Summerlin’s yang. A new destination with its own identity borne from its unique location.
What are the next villages to come online?
Located along the northern border of Far Hills Drive, Redpoint district is a key gateway into Summerlin West, boasting eight new single-family neighborhoods from a handful of Summerlin’s prestigious homebuilders, including Woodside, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison, Lennar, Tri Pointe Homes and Pulte. Each neighborhood will feature a contemporary take on traditional Spanish architecture with Summerlin’s hallmark pedestrian connections to open space and shaded street side trails.
Immediately north of Redpoint you’ll find Redpoint Square, featuring a blend of single family attached and detached homes from builders including Richmond American Homes, KB Homes, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison, Lennar and Woodside. With walkable connectivity between neighborhoods and open spaces, including carefully planned pedestrian access to future neighborhood services and community parks, Redpoint Square is tailored to preserve Summerlin’s signature healthy, active lifestyle.
Situated at the northernmost edge of Summerlin West, Kestrel overlooks the Las Vegas valley from an elevation just above 3,000 feet. South of Lake Mead Boulevard and west of the 215, Kestrel will offer seven new single-family neighborhoods – each delivering its own distinct and contemporary spin on traditional Spanish architecture – from a line-up of Summerlin builders including Taylor Morrison, Woodside Homes, Pulte, Richmond American Homes, and Tri Pointe Homes.
Directly south of Kestrel, the district of Kestrel Commons will evolve into a fusion of single-family detached and attached homes featuring contemporary architecture, offer a blend of suburban lifestyle and urban-esque sophistication, and boast the signature connectivity, walkability, and open space now synonymous with Summerlin West.
Will pricing be similar to what is currently offered in Summerlin?
The wide variety of floorplans with varied starting prices anticipated in the newly developing areas of Summerlin West will continue to make Summerlin a popular choice among all generations from first-time homebuyers, to young professionals, families and those looking to celebrate their golden years. With scores of new floorplans priced from the $400,000s Summerlin West will continue Summerlin’s tradition of offering first-class, new homes to suit a broad range of budgets and lifestyles.
What type of architecture and style can we expect as we move further West?
A contemporary version of Spanish Architecture and Mid-Century Modern define the residential character of Redpoint and Redpoint Square respectively. As the density increases in Redpoint Square, the arrangement of homes changes to front on the streetscape and the traditional tall perimeter walls are eliminated. Emphasis on the pedestrian realm reinforces the urban character.
The Grand Park provides a visual break to the residential development and a stunning view corridor to the western mountain range. The surrounding homes will take on a more relaxed, traditional character with a mix of Prairie, Craftsman, Farmhouse, and southwest contemporary styles. Further west, the land will inform the character of the homes and their styles may range from Desert Contemporary and Ranch/Farmhouse to Hacienda/Spanish and Rugged Contemporary.
Durable, organic building materials and exterior paint palettes that blend in and compliment the surrounding desert will continue to be emphasized as will indoor/outdoor living spaces.
What differentiates Summerlin West from what Summerlin currently offers?
To make Summerlin West accessible to more people, we’re broadening our selection of homes. With styles that span the spectrum from comfortably traditional to contemporary and eclectic. In neighborhoods that range from familiar suburban patterns to a denser, mixed-use, urban grid. Summerlin community design is ever-evolving, creating a broad range of residential and commercial environments. When complete, Summerlin West will include classic suburban residential neighborhoods as well as more pedestrian friendly mixed-use modern urban areas.
How is Hughes preserving the natural environment as we continue to move further west in development?
As the developer of the master-planned community of Summerlin, The Howard Hughes Corporation has long recognized its obligation as a steward of the land. The company’s dedication to preserving the environment has been demonstrated in many ways over the years, most notably two land exchanges in which Hughes pulled Summerlin’s boundary eastward out of Red Rock Canyon, adding 6,400 acres to the National Conservation Area and creating a permanent gateway and buffer zone that will forever protect Red Rock Canyon and preserve its pristine character.Additional Info
How many more years do we anticipate until Summerlin is fully developed?
We currently have at least 20 more years of anticipated development. Our teams plan and engineer future lands for at least five years in the future working through land and traffic studies in partnership with respective municipalities. There are some areas that take an evolutionary approach to develop and more time than other villages. Downtown Summerlin is the perfect example as this village began with the opening of Red Rock Resort-Casino-Spa and the master plan has ebbed and flowed through designs and trends allowing us to meet market demands and take advantage of unexpected opportunities like developing an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment mecca and bringing the NHL practice facility and Las Vegas Ballpark home to Summerlin. Somethings beautiful take a little bit more time curate.
