Master-Planning Communities in the Sun Belt

October 31, 2023 2:00 PM – 2:30 PM (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time Special Program
Open to All Attendees

This session looks at the expert master planning behind the communities of Summerlin in Las Vegas and Teravalis in the Phoenix West Valley—two of the Howard Hughes communities driving long-term sustainable development in the Sun Belt as the area continues to be the overwhelming recipient of domestic migration. Both Nevada and Arizona have experienced more than 10% annual job growth over the last 5 years, more than double the US average of 4.1%, defining both states as locations for opportunity, growth and success. A look at Summerlin by President Frank Stephan will explore the community’s ability to offer an exceptional quality of life in a business-friendly environment. Heath Melton, President of the Phoenix region for Howard Hughes, will look at the significant opportunity and responsibility of building a new community form the ground up, including the need for innovative technological advancements when it comes to water conservation and sustainable development.
