LAS VEGAS, NV – Even though it is currently still in the works, the upcoming Las Vegas Ballpark is already seeing satellite businesses begin to pop up around it, and one of the most prominent is being constructed by Summerlin developer Howard Hughes Corp. in the form of a new, 14-story hotel.
Las Vegas Ballpark is a baseball stadium under construction in Summerlin, Nevada for the Las Vegas Aviators of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. The stadium site is located near the intersection of South Town Center Drive and West Sahara Avenue. Construction of the $150 million stadium began in 2018 and is expected to be completed in time for the Aviators’ 2019 season. It will serve as a replacement for the team’s previous home at Cashman Field, where the team has resided since 1983.
Howard Hughes Corp. has recently submitted plans calling for a 267-room hotel to be built on a 4.3-acre lot south of the ballpark on Pavilion Center Drive, situated across from Summerlin Mall in Las Vegas’ downtown area. According to plans submitted to Clark County – whose commissioners still have to vote on the proposal – the hotel would include various amenities for guests, such as a restaurant bar and spa located on the roof.
The hotel, if approved and built, will allow residents and tourists accommodations that allow easy local access to places such as Downtown Summerlin, the City National Arena ice rink, Red Rock Resort – a 64-acre, 796-room hotel, which would be a competitor – and, of course, the Las Vegas Ballpark itself.
The proposed hotel would not offer gambling on the premises and would strictly offer only rooms and spa/entertainment options for guests, which Howard Hughes Corp. representatives say there is a growing demand for in Las Vegas, especially in areas located near the suburbs. The smaller size and subsequent ease of access the hotel would provide when compared to competitors would also be appealing to families and those visiting relatives in Summerlin and other nearby communities, Howard Hughes Corp. reps said. In addition, those looking to stay in a quiet, non-gaming hotel, while having the option of being able to patronize gambling establishments nearby – such as the aforementioned Red Rock Resort – would also find the proposed hotel to be appealing.
Summerlin is a wealthy master-planned community in the Las Vegas Valley of Nevada, located near the Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon. It is part of Clark County, takes up approximately 22,500 acres of land, and boasts a current population of nearly 100,000 residents.
