The retirement communities they are currently building in Las Vegas are Del Webb Lake Las Vegas which is near golf at Lake Las Vegas and Del Webb at North Ranch in North Las Vegas. Del Webb at North Ranch is not a golf community which keeps the homeowner association fees down.
With large plots of vacant land getting scarcer in Las Vegas, Del Webb shifted to building non-golf neighborhoods while maintaining the other desirable amenities that Del Webb is known for.
Del Webb at Lake Las Vegas has golf within the master plan but not within their neighborhoods. The award-winning golf course was built 25 years ago and residents are permitted access to both golf and the lake after purchasing a social membership.
The community of Lake Las Vegas was started in the 1990s as an exclusive custom home community. At that time, it was about 5 miles past most Henderson development. Fast forward 25 years and Lake Las Vegas is a fabulous place to live.
The homes are affordable and elegant surrounding a pristine man-made lake that allows electric and manual watercrafts. Besides water activities, there are stores, dining, and casino and resorts for both tourists and residents to enjoy. Besides Del Webb at Lake Las Vegas, there are condominiums over the water, tract homes in multiple price points, and luxury semi-custom and custom homes. Vacant land to build on is available in case you might want to consider building a custom home. Views are varied and stunning!
North Ranch in North Las Vegas is adjacent to the 1 million square foot VA hospital, with the nearest golf at Sun City Aliante a few miles away. Del Webb at North Ranch is located within the master-planned community of North Ranch. Homes in North Ranch range from condo/townhouses to large 2 story homes. This still-under-construction community is gated and across the street from the VA hospital. Many seniors consider this 55+ retirement community to be a better match for their desired lifestyle.

Del Webb’s Housing In Las Vegas History
Del Webb Las Vegas was the first builder to build homes in the new master-planned community of Summerlin in 1989. Sun City Summerlin is now home to over 15,000 residents. The area was so popular that Del Webb bought more land in an adjacent Summerlin Village to continue their community within Summerlin.
In the resale market, you’ll find Del Webb homes for sale in Summerlin, McDonald Ranch, Aliante, and Anthem’s Sun City communities. All are known as friendly and fabulous places to live. Their activities, amenities, and community centers are top-notch and include multiple swimming pools and sports courts. Casinos arrange transportation as well as residents forming group activities to provide activities during both day and evening hours.
Residents who have skills teach classes; clubs form to meet like-minded neighbors, and clubs are also formed to assist people living in the community. The assistance that I’ve heard so much gratitude about is people who can drive others to doctor or treatment appointments and then wait to bring them home. This is a no-charge service based upon the idea of giving and giving back when you can.
The three brand new home communities that Del Webb currently builds have a vast array of options to choose from to upgrade their basic home. A basic home comes with tile in wet-areas and traffic paths, carpet in the bedrooms, and walk-in closets. Walk-in showers in the master bath have safety bars and emergency call buttons where they might be needed.
Emergency alert systems typically connect with the community guard gates or flash exterior lights for roving patrols and neighbors. Extra-large laundry rooms are designed to be altered or transformed into offices and craft rooms as needed. Golf communities will include golf cart parking in the garage.
Del Webb – The Beginning
Del Webb is an exemplary builder of Active Senior Communities in the United States but didn’t start that way. Delbert E. Webb’s family was not wealthy as he grew up, and a familial illness had him quitting school to bring in a paycheck as a carpenter’s apprentice for a few years.
A career in semi-pro baseball was supplemented by doing carpentry jobs to make ends meet. While playing a baseball game with San Quinton Prison, Del contracted Typhoid Fever and, after barely surviving, was advised to move to a dry climate.
Del and his family had $100 in their pockets when they relocated to Phoenix, AZ, at age 29. He did carpentry jobs wherever he could find them until the government awarded him a contract building grocery stores in Arizona during the depression. With his foot in the door building grocery stores, he applied for more government contracts to a point where his company was building over 3 million dollars of buildings a year – in the 1930’s!
Towards the end of the depression, the NY Yankees owner needed to sell, so Del Webb and two others bought the team for 2.89 million dollars. In the late 1930’s they diversified into building schools and airfields. During WWII, they built the Japanese internment camp at Poston, AZ, among other government facilities for the next 15 years.
Del Webb Corp. Started The Las Vegas Strip
The next expansion Del Webb Corporation made was moving into the Las Vegas market. They were the construction company that teamed up with Bugsy Segal in 1946 to build the Flamingo Hotel on Las Vegas Blvd. Soon Del Webb became part-owner of the Flamingo Corporation and went on to build many Flamingo Hotels.
After meeting Howard Hughes in Las Vegas, Del Webb Corp. built several Hughes factories and office buildings. The 1950s were all about houses, hotels and hospitals, and a few smaller projects for the Del Webb Corporation. Of course, his World Champions, The NY Yankees were his passion.
Sun City’s – 55+ Living
In January 1960, the first retirement community in Sun City, Arizona was built. It became the model for retirement communities across the United States. Going public on the NYSE in late 1960 led to the acquisition of the Sahara Hotel and The Mint in Las Vegas while ironing out how to build a successful retirement community. Del Webb Corp. continued to build all types of high rises, Madison Square Gardens, and the LA Art Museum in the 1960s.
Diversifying, they tackled creating an infrastructure in some US cities and several South American countries. Del Webb died in July 1975, but Del Webb Corp. remained strong. Continuing to build more retirement housing, schools, hospitals, hotels, high-rises, convention centers, stadiums, and airports Del Webb Corporation was a top company for years.
In 1987 corporate decided to restructure and focus strictly on their extremely successful retirement communities. This lead to selling off their other divisions and collecting monthly overrides from Sun City residents. Still having a relationship with the Howard Hughes Corporation, when HHC planned Summerlin, they asked Del Webb to become a big player.
Today Sun City Summerlin has 3 18-hole golf courses, 4 community centers, and about 1000 acres. Sun City Summerlin is one of Summerlin’s 25 villages within the master-planned community, the largest in the United States.
