The Start Of The Green Valley Master-Plan
Homes For Sale in Green Valley in Henderson are in high demand. Green Valley was the first master-planned community in Henderson, Nevada. Plans for the Green Valley Master-Planned Community started in 1973.
It was a brainchild of Hank Greenspun, who was the owner of the Sun Newspaper. He founded the American Nevada Corporation, and they finally got approval for the Green Valley Master Plan in 1978.
Originally Green Valley covered 8400 acres. Breaking ground in 1985. American Nevada Corporation and Green Valley built a “Best-In-Class” community that took 20 years to complete.
When The Strip hotel boom thrived in the 1990s, homes sold faster, and in 1994, Green Valley Ranch added expanded to enhance all of Henderson, including Green Valley North and South. Seven Hills started selling in 2004, also an ANC project, with 1300 acres and 2500 homes in 25 neighborhoods.
Who Developed Green Valley Ranch?
American Nevada Corporation also has a division for managing these communities. ANC developed Aliante in 2004 in North Las Vegas as joint partners with Pulte Corporation.
They built at least 9 lovely commercial complexes in Henderson and North Las Vegas in the last 30 years. Green Valley’s founders Hank and Barbara Greenspan, have an estate that gives generously to the community.
What Is A Master-Planned Community?
“Master-Planned” is where before homes are ever planned for, the area around the block of land gets planned as to the location of the amenities. These include schools, retail shopping, Parks and Recreation, emergency services, employment, golf, apartments, etc.
Then housing is added to the plan. Houses in each community include small, medium, and large homes and sometimes luxury custom or semi-custom homes. After the developer plans and moves some dirt, they install the main roads with utility hubs. Then builders buy raw land from the developer.
Houses are plotted to best utilize the available land while adhering to the basic guidelines. There are guidelines, color schemes, and CCRs that every builder incorporates and puts on their community.
Bronze Statues Everywhere
The first-time I showed homes in Green Valley was in 1993. I remember driving through streets with no traffic, great-looking homes, and green grassy walking paths and sidewalks.
It took a long time to get there on surface streets. We came to a corner with a bronzed statue of a man sitting on a bench reading an opened newspaper. It was very cool. Then at the next intersection, there were two bronzed golfers.
I had to go back without the clients to look for more, and they were everywhere! There were probably 50-100. Over the next 10 years, they were switched around a couple of times, but that was my favorite thing in all of Green Valley!
The statues are gone now. I read that they were removed for water conservation and because they confused people and held up traffic. They need to be at the Neon Museum or in a park. We have no clue where they are now. Kurt says they went golfing and then to Starbucks…
In 1995 our wedding coordinator looked for land to build a wedding venue. I showed her a 5-acre vacant land parcel fronting to Lake Mead Blvd for under $200,000. Lake Mead is now St. Rose Pkwy, and it was at Eastern.
I am amazed at the changes 25 years have brought. In 1995 we were in the middle of nowhere with no utilities. She thought that it was too far out for wedding guests to attend. That intersection is one of the busiest intersections in the entire Las Vegas Valley today. What a difference in only 25 years!
