DOWNTOWN SUMMERLIN TO OPEN MAJOR RETAILERS, RESTAURANTS AND ENTERTAINMENT VENUES OCTOBER 9
Las Vegas (May 15, 2014) – Summerlin, the valley’s largest master-planned community, is a hotbed of excitement and anticipation with this week’s announcement of new tenants and an Oct. 9, 2014 opening date for Downtown Summerlin, the community’s 106-acre retail, dining and entertainment venue. Executives with The Howard Hughes Corporation, developer of Summerlin, gathered with community leaders and media on Thursday to mark significant progress on the community’s emerging 400-acre Downtown Summerlin with a 1.6 million-square-foot retail and lifestyle center by the same name at its core. Envisioned as the city’s second major downtown, Downtown Summerlin is designed as a walkable urban core with significant office and residential developments to create a true live/work/play complex in the heart of the community.
“Downtown Summerlin will soon be the place to be for fashion, dining and entertainment in Southern Nevada, and we are happy to see the excitement from the entire Las Vegas Valley for this first class development,” said Kevin T. Orrock, president of Summerlin. “Our mix of tenants will include world-class brands that are new to Nevada in addition to retailers who want a Summerlin location for their growing customer base.”
Already announced anchor tenants, Macy’s and Dillard’s, will be joined by popular national brands including Michael Kors, True Religion, Sephora, Nordstrom Rack and Victoria’s Secret. Other recently announced additions in Downtown Summerlin include Boston Proper, Brighton Collectibles, Buckle, Everything But Water, Francesca’s Collection, Pandora, Republic of Couture’s Resto Lounge, White House|Black Market and a Mackenzie-Child’s boutique by LG Galleries.
Three top destination restaurants will join Downtown Summerlin’s growing number of culinary spots. Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill will be the restaurateur’s first Summerlin restaurant and will feature contemporary American cuisine. Elizabeth Blau and chef/husband Kim Canteenwalla will also open their first Summerlin restaurant to create an upscale sibling to the acclaimed couple’s other restaurants, Honey Salt, Buddy V’s and Simon Palm’s Place . A third eatery, CRAVE Restaurant, will feature quality, local and regionally sourced food, a chic atmosphere and diverse choices that will create an unforgettable dining experience.
Downtown Summerlin will include the ultimate cinematic experience with the opening of a luxury Regal Cinema. The five-screen theater will be highlighted by innovative and upscale design and provide every movie-goer with exceptional comfort and spacious seating in addition to gourmet dining options.
Downtown Summerlin’s newest office building, One Summerlin, is a 200,000-square-foot Class A office tower that will also open this fall. The nine-story office tower features street-level retail on the first floor and offers unmatched 360-degree views of the valley from the Las Vegas Strip to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Built to LEED Silver certification standards, One Summerlin provides all of the advantages and amenities of Class A space typically found in more urban areas, but is literally close to home and within steps of dining, shopping and socializing venues.
Located in the heart of Summerlin between West Charleston Boulevard and West Sahara Avenue along the
eastern edge of the 215 beltway, Downtown Summerlin is easily accessible from all parts of the valley. For the latest on Summerlin and its amenities visit www.summerlin.com and www.downtownsummerlin.com.
