Howard Hughes Holdings Inc., developer of the Summerlin community in Las Vegas, announced the addition of a Whole Foods Market in Downtown Summerlin, the community’s 400-acre walkable urban core. Whole Foods Market, the retailer of natural and organic foods, will anchor a 7.4-acre, new retail center.
“Whole Foods Market is known for its standards of excellence and being an industry leader when it comes to natural and organic foods, and we believe it is an ideal addition to the Summerlin community,” said Frank Stephan, President of the Nevada Region for Howard Hughes in a statement. “The brand exemplifies the high level of quality that our residents are seeking, and that Howard Hughes is known to deliver.”
Downtown Summerlin welcomes the fourth Whole Foods Market location within the Howard Hughes portfolio—following openings in Downtown Columbia in Maryland (2014), The Woodlands in Texas (2015), and Ward Village in Honolulu, Hawai’i (2018). This announcement marks the launch in one of Howard Hughes’ fastest growing downtowns across the country. Downtown Summerlin has entered a new chapter of growth, with additional office, inline retail, and multifamily housing options planned for the new retail center to be anchored by Whole Foods Market.
The new retail center is being built to achieve LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, reflecting Downtown Summerlin’s focus on sustainability and walkability. Residents of the nearby luxury apartment communities of Tanager, Tanager Echo, Constellation as well as adjacent neighborhoods will enjoy pedestrian connectivity to Whole Foods Market via a well-developed interior trail system as well as access to electric vehicle charging stations.
Construction commenced in September with core and shell completion for the new retail center slated for Q3 2024 at which time Howard Hughes will turn spaces over to tenants for buildouts.
Field Paoli Architects is the project’s architect, and Nevada General Construction is the general contractor.
