This will probably be the major retailing event of 2014, but there has been little concrete information on what to expect from the enormous Shops at Summerlin development. The buzz about Macy’s, Dillard’s and a 6,000-square-foot Nordstrom Rack signing on as tenants have learned they will also be joined by a five screen movie theater .
Built from the ground up and located across from the Red Rock Resort, the Shops have been broken down into 11 color-coded areas. Each colored district has a particular style.
Surrounding the shops are parking areas and, just like a village, (Summerlin is divided into villages, example, Vistas, Pueblos, paseos, ), each road or drive has been given a name, here they are: Festival Plaza Drive is the main street, per say , leading you into either end of the shops, joining Lavender Hill, La Madre Mountain, Sage Park, Summa, Park Centre, Market walk, Rosemary Park and Oval Park Drive. It will mainly be a walking-focused destination with enough architectural variety, foliage and shaded and cooled areas to encourage visitors to take their time as they meander though the districts.
