Las Vegas is welcoming a new combination of sophistication, luxury and sly attitude. Named after the Rat Pack’s residency at the Sands more than 50 years ago, The Summit is elevating Summerlin living to new heights – in all ways possible. Mike Meldman is the founder and CEO of the Discovery Land Company, the driving force behind the community. He spoke to Luxury Estates International about how the 555-acre project is taking shape.
LOTS AND LOCATION
Known for developing resort-style residential properties in exclusive locations, the Discovery Land Company has kept a close eye on Las Vegas for years. “It’s always been the time. We just weren’t able to find the right piece of property,” says Meldman.
By teaming up with the Howard Hughes Corporation, the company took advantage of a prime Summerlin location to develop The Summit. “We have bigger lots than most of the communities and views as good as anywhere in Vegas, whether you’re looking at the Strip or Red Rock.”
A NEW WAY TO GOLF
The centerpiece of The Summit is an 18-hole championship golf course and the only true private club in Las Vegas, strictly for residents only. In addition to its elite design, the course has spectacular views and a unique mix of style and atmosphere. Comfort stations, a staple of Discovery properties, offer golfers drinks and food on their own time between holes.
AN EXCLUSIVE CLUB
A spectacular clubhouse offers lifestyle benefits that will rival even the best hotels in Las Vegas. Dubbed Club Village, it features restaurants, bars, swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness center and personalized services, including kids activities and off-property outdoor excursions. “The clubhouse is the hub of the resort amenities,” explains Meldman. “Everything you could want is at the clubhouse.”
