“The opening of Downtown Summerlin along with the development of this unmatched resort community will further strengthen Summerlin's unique position as the top place to live in Las Vegas,” said David R.

The new luxury community is located just minutes from Downtown Summerlin, a vibrant 400-acre urban center in the heart of Summerlin that opens this fall. It features a 106-acre outdoor, pedestrian-friendly fashion, dining and entertainment destination along with Class A office and urban style residential opportunities.When complete, it will include retail, entertainment, office and multi-family residences, designed to create a vibrant, walkable downtown in the heart of the affluent 22,500-acre master planned community.
Residents of the new resort community will also enjoy access to all the amenities of a Summerlin address, including more than 150 miles of trails, more than 150 parks, nine golf courses, top-notch private and public schools and a robust offering of special events, classes and programs exclusively for those who live in the community.
Each of Discovery’s projects is distinct from one another with their own themes and architectural styles inspired by the natural environment and traditions of the projects’ locale. “Our clubs offer privacy, world-class resort amenities with high levels of service and club programs that work in sync to create an appealing lifestyle and culture that is focused on family and a multi-generational membership,” said Michael S. Meldman, Chairman & CEO of Discovery Land Company. “Nothing like this yet exists in Las Vegas, so we are particularly pleased to partner with The Howard Hughes Corporation in bringing this unparalleled resort-style living opportunity to the area.”
