Development of Summerlin's newest village underway |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
Development of Summerlin's newest village is officially underway.
It's located on 300 acres at the base of the mountains west of the the 215 between Cheyenne and Lake Mead.
It's been in the works for years, but was stalled by the recession. The fact they're finally moving forward is another sign our economy is getting back on track.
"Lots of different views, some canyon, some mountain, some city views, depending on your lot," said Jason Demuth, PulteGrouup
Perched at an elevation of 3,200 feet, future residents of Summerlin's newest village will have a view of the Las Vegas valley to the east and the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area to the west.
"It is Red Rock Recreation Area, so there will not be development up that canyon, so homeowners with those lots, they've got that great view," Demuth said.
This is not the development that generated so much controversy recently with the Save Red Rock group. This village is being built on Summerlin's northern most edge. You can't live any closer to the western mountains.
"So there will be no further development beyond this point here," Demuth said.
The 900 homes in the village, which will be called Reverence, will range in size from 1,500 to 4,800 square feet.
They haven't announced pricing yet.
Just the fact they're moving forward with this project is further evidence of our recovering economy and growth of the valley.
Analysts say Clark County's population is growing by about 25,000 people a year. And with an improving economy, there is growing demand for higher-end homes like the ones being built there.
They've been working at the site for several months. The first model homes are expected to open in late spring. Reverence will be a gated community with a portion of it being guard gated.
