The future home of The Cliffs.

The first new village in 12 years in Summerlin broke ground today. The Howard Hughes Corp. plans to develop this new master-planned community dubbed The Cliffs, set against a ridgeline in the 25-year-old community’s southernmost tip. Eventually the area will be home to 11 planned neighborhoods with more than 1,700 homes.

Kevin Orrock, president of Summerlin and Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager headlined the event that includes a skydiving demonstration by SkyDive Force Inc., a group of jumpers who travel the globe.

The 450-acre Cliffs village sits along the base of the Spring Mountains, just south of the private prep school Bishop Gorman. The village will include both single-family and multi-family homes in a variety of price points and styles. Regency, a luxury age-qualified community by Toll Brothers, is slated to begin construction this month and have models open first quarter 2016.

New neighborhoods in The Cliffs plan to showcase views of the valley as well as the Spring Mountains with some neighborhoods terraced with unobstructed views. Still other plots of land will remain undisturbed and undeveloped to retain their desert beauty.

Chunky stone, wood-like tiles, metals and integrated outdoor living spaces are some of the design features that will help homes in The Cliffs blend with the natural terrain.
