Inspirada in Henderson NV nears a grand opening! Both of these photos were taken on 12-1-06, if you go to this link you will see some of the photos over the past months, the progress is quite amazing!  The models by KB are going to be unique for Las Vegas as the garage access will be in the back of the house via an alley access. The photo below is the new visitors center and as of today they were looking close to having it finished! I've been told we will see a grand opening later this month. Every time I drive out for a visit the road has been moved and it snakes in-between mountains of building materials and if you drive a bit too slow your bound to be overtaken by some HUGE earth moving vehicle!! Unlike a few weeks ago the streets are in and I even saw the fist street light being ins...

There are three separate initiatives:$350,000 for Central Kidz to underwrite the budget for Central's Adventure Island, Fun Factory and Gear Zone.

Tonight I attended an open house to view a sample of what is happening at one of the FIRST mid rise condos in Henderson, NV. Vantage Lofts is located at Gibson Rd. & Horizon Ridge in Henderson NV and in my opinion the best way to describe it is coooooool! I know there are lots of projects in town, mostly on the strip, where you will feel like a celeb but this is the ultimate with a Henderson address. This project is well under way with just a small percentage of it sold at this time but it will be ready for move-in in the spring of 2007! This is the perfect second home, only about 15 min. to the airport and 20 min to the Strip! This would be PERFECT if you come to Vegas a couple of times a year for those big conventions! Unlike so many of the condo projects in the area they only want a ...

If you have been following any of my past posts on Inspirada you will know that KB Homes was scheduled to start sales in October. Well from the looks of things I knew there was no way they were going to make it, as of yesterday I found out that they have now delayed their sales to December 26th. Ya, right like that's going to happen! I don't think any work gets completed between Christmas and New Years in Las Vegas, everyone is saving up their energy for the 31st! Anyway I've had lots of interest in this new master planned community and It is sure to be great! Can't wait to see the models! You will find more info and some recent photos at this link.

When most people think of southern Nevada, they think of the Las Vegas Strip or our sunny, desert landscape surrounded by colorful mountains. Today, over 1000 property owners share a new vision - Lake Las Vegas Resort, a 3,592-acre master-planned community in Henderson, Nevada. Development of Lake Las Vegas began in 1987 with construction of a dam to divert water from the Las Vegas Wash into a 320-acre lake with 10 miles of shoreline. SouthShore Golf Club, a private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, opened in 1995. One year later the first residents moved into SouthShore. Since then, Lake Las Vegas Resort's residential offerings have grown to include waterfront villas, single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums. Prices range from the 300's to over $4 million. MonteLago Village p...

When you enter the Lake Las Vegas Resort master-planned community, the road takes you along the lush green fairways of The Falls Golf Course. Just ahead, one right turn transports you from championship golf to an old-world Italian lakeside location - MonteLago Village. Cobblestone streets, waterfront restaurants and specialty boutiques with luxury condos above highlight MonteLago Village. In addition to the authentic atmosphere, there are special events year round including art, wine, cultural and food festivals, concerts on a floating stage, outdoor movies and holiday celebrations. During the winter, the stage is converted to a floating ice rink. Adjacent to MonteLago Village is The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas (courtyard pictured, below left). The AAA Five Diamond-rated hotel features...

This is a photo of the "Old" Tower at the Henderson Executive Airport. It's no longer there! Over the past couple of weeks it has been torn to the ground and they are expanding the area with new hangers. This whole airport is getting updated from new runways to a new terminal, the WORKS!This is the NEW tower that started construction about a year ago and in the past few months there has been the transition from the old to the new! So for the longest time there have been both towers and then the other day I noticed just the one! It is amazing how we do things her in Southern Nevada, when it's old or too small TEAR IT DOWN and build it bigger and better! The next big project will be the Stardust, so you'd better make you final trip and say your good-bye's to that too!I live in Seven Hills...

This is a photo taken today of the newest and only track homes under construction in Seven Hills, LaVita. This is going to be a very interesting product unlike we've seen in most areas of Las Vegas. The Builder is KB and the floor plans range from 4500sf to 9000sf, very large for a track builder. But you had better get in line because there are only 33 lots! The finish quality should be fantastic, there is even an option to add an elevator. This particular parcel has been sitting for some time but now is under-construction and will have breathtaking views from many of the lots! These are going to have a very HIGH price tag on them. It looks to me like KB is trying to compete with the likes of Christopher and Toll Brothers for some of their high end buyers. I have some more photos and in...

When Kaufman & Broad built the Springfield collection in the master-planned community of South Valley Ranch, one of the marketing methods they used was a life-sized 'Simpson's House.' Architects reviewed 56 episodes of the series to capture color schemes (vibrant yellow, baby blue, power orange, generator green, jazz age coral and pink flamingo) and details including Bart's swing set and Homer's barbecue.In 1997, the 2,200 sqare foot home was won by a retired factory worker from Richmond, KY in a contest sponsored by Pepsi-Cola and Fox. After the promotion ended the home was repainted to match the rest of the neighborhood. Today all that remains is the arched front door and Matt Groening's hand prints and autograph in the sidewalk. Die-hard fans can still view the floor plans and plenty...
