North Las Vegas Approves SunCal’s Master Plan for Park Highlands West

SunCal is adding to the master planned community wave that has hit the Las Vegas area in recent months as a number of projects were revived by developers. The North Las Vegas City Council recently gave its approval to master developer SunCal’s proposed Park Highlands West community project. The development is just a part of the overall Park Highlands development initiative, and the recent approval essentially means that that large plot of land is being divided into East and West master-plans.

SunCal is adding to the master-planned community wave that has hit the Las Vegas metropolitan area in recent months as developers revive stalled projects. The North Las Vegas City Council recently approved SunCal’s proposed Park Highlands West project. The development is part of the larger Park Highlands development initiative, and the recent approval essentially means that the site is being divided into east and west portions.

Park Highlands West is one of the largest remaining undeveloped parcels in North Las Vegas. The 600-acre site features  access to established job centers via the I-215 beltway, as well as Summerlin and other emerging hot spots. The Park Highlands West site is also near other residential and retail developments.

The Park Highlands site was originally purchased by a consortium of builders for $635 million in 2006. Two years ago,  SunCal purchased about 208 acres that are now part of Park Highlands West. SunCal is the master developer for that entire 600-acre section.

According to Frank Faye, executive vice president of SunCal, the developer’s close working relationship with local authorities is critical to the Park Highlands West project. He added that the approval “will significantly expedite the development of the Park Highlands West master plan.”
