The History of Summerlin Las Vegas
Howard Hughes purchased 25,000 acres of very remote desert land in 1952 for $3 per acre. He bought the land as a possible future company site. Howard Hughes and his corporations purchased and sold 5 Las Vegas Hotels. He died in 1976.
After sitting dormant for almost 40 years, Summa – the Howard Hughes Corporation, presented its plan for Summerlin to the city. Howard Hughes’ paternal grandmother, Jean Amelia Summerlin, was the namesake for the community.
The timing couldn’t have been better as the grand opening coincided with the boom on the Las Vegas Strip. With every casino built on The Strip, Las Vegas and the other cities in the valley exploded.
An average of 5000 people relocated to Vegas each month for the last 30 years. Summerlin has attracted the attention of many of them because of the brilliance of Summerlin’s original design team.
Summerlin’s concept combined with exemplary marketing has shown the world how to create a world-class community. As a result of this brilliance, 30 years later, Summerlin is the best area to live in Las Vegas.
New Construction Homes
In 2017 Summerlin officially hit the 100,000 residences milestone, and the growth in the last 4-5 years is staggering. Part of Summerlin’s success is due to being flexible and changing their home products and amenities to meet consumer demand.
The pandemic created lumber shortages that have progressed to supply chain issues. Demand for townhomes, condos, attached housing products as well as higher-end homes increased. Builders adjusted their communities to include denser lots and more “Lock and Leave” lifestyle choices.
Several condominium communities and some age-restricted luxury apartment buildings were permitted last year and are now being built. View lots in prestigious communities developed long waitlists.
Single-family home floor plans now have options for study areas and dens. At the same time, sliding door walls bringing the outside in and the inside out became a desirable trend.

The Howard Hughes Corp. Golden Plan
Del Webb Sun City homes for sale in Summerlin started in 1988. As Sun City was selling homes in their own Village, HHC continued moving dirt The Hills Village was where the first homes were released.
1990 marked the completion of the Summerlin Parkway, and finally, in 1991, the first family called Summerlin home. HHC also built the Meadows School and donated it as Summerlin’s first private school. The Clark County School District was a little slower.
To navigate and identify the different areas of Summerlin, each land release is called a Village. Each Village is master-planned and has design criteria that each builder must adhere to.
Howard Hughes Corporation takes on the development of a large sports park featuring a designated sport. They build and landscape walking paths connecting neighborhoods. The remaining land is sold to builders with predetermined home sizes and design criteria.

BLM Land Exchanges For Views
The first area of land to be developed was The Hills Village in Summerlin North. Sales in all of the Villages – Sun City, The Hills, The Paseos, and The Trails were booming. The Howard Hughes Corporation proposed a land exchange to the BLM.
They eventually traded 5000 acres of beautiful red rocks to the BLM, expanding the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. In return, BLM gave them 5000 acres with views in the south part of town. This exchange is now The Cliffs Village in Summerlin South.
