Downtown Summerlin shopping center is an outdoor business, entertainment, fashion and retail district within the affluent community of Summerlin, Nevada. It houses more than 125 stores and restaurants, a five-screen movie theater, mid- and high-rise condos and luxury apartments, as well as One Summerlin, a nine-story office building. The 400-acre shopping development’s design is centered on pedestrian thorough- fares with plenty of shade throughout and where Stone, steel and various metal facades provide a contemporary feel to the area. David Weinreb, CEO for Howard Hughes Corp, principle investor in the development, does not see the project as a mall, but as a real downtown. The property on which Downtown Summerlin is being built has been slated to be the community’s downtown area since the 1980s when the master-planned community was designed. Approximately 6,000 acres have been dedicated to housing development, specifically mid- and high-rise condos and luxury apartments. Construction will begin this fall on a three-story, 124-unit multifamily residential development that is opened in spring 2016. For this project, the developer chose Atelier Vierkant MRR130 vases in black anthracite clay, together with UR80 which prevent the cars to drive on the pedestrian areas. At the Park Centre Dr, UK vases planted with succulents rhythms the space, in combination with a water with different water plays, which were put in place to cool down the extremely hot temperatures in summer.
