Hughes Corp. Plans Apartments for Downtown Summerlin

The Howard Hughes Corp. and the Calida Group have unveiled plans for the first multifamily residential development in the 400-acre Downtown Summerlin in the Summerlin master-planned community in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas—The Howard Hughes Corp. and the Calida Group have unveiled plans for the first multifamily residential development in the 400-acre Downtown Summerlin in the Summerlin master-planned community in Las Vegas. The development will be a 124-unit gated community on 4.5 acres.

The property will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from about 1,000 square feet to 2,040 square feet. Common amenities will include a fitness center; a spa with tanning services, on-call masseuse and aesthetician; and a resort-style pool with an outdoor barbecue area and pool-side cabanas. Third-floor units include 20-foot ceilings along with a fourth-story rooftop deck. Some residences also include attached garages.

The apartments will also have the advantage of being in Summerlin. For example, they will be adjacent to the 1.6 million-square-foot, upscale shopping center opening later this year in Downtown Summerlin. The apartments themselves are slated for opening in the spring of 2015.

Downtown Summerlin is a smaller patch of planned development within the much larger Summerlin planned community. Besides the aforementioned multifamily property, other plans for the area include various kinds of commercial space and entertainment, as well as a proposed baseball stadium for the Las Vegas 51s, a minor league baseball team that the Howard Hughes Corp. bought last year.

Summerlin itself has been a going concern for about a quarter century now, and is currently home to more than 100,000 residents. The planned community includes more than 150 neighborhood and village parks, 150 completed miles of trails, 22 public and private schools, 14 houses of worship, nine golf courses, shopping centers, medical and cultural facilities, business parks and a variety of residential properties.
