Expected to open for the year-end holiday season, the Shops at Summerlin is currently undergoing construction over a 106-acre span on the northeast corner of Sahara and the 215 Beltway in Las Vegas. The Shops are right next to the Red Rock hotel-casino and are set to open with a Dillard's and Macy's among other smaller retailers including Nordstrom Rock and Trader Joe's.
Observers say the movement of this project reflects a great rebound for the Las Vegas economy. Construction has been sparse in the valley since the Great Recession hit, and this project was on a hault until it resumed this past May. The Shops at Summerlin are set to create 2,000 construction jobs as well as 2,000 permanent jobs for retail and restaurant uses. When the retail center is complete, it will include 1.4 million square feet in an open-air pedestrian-friendly streetscape retail center and 200,000 square feet of office space.
