I need something to go with.
Working class neighborhoods and high end neighborhoods are side by side in pretty much anywhere you go in Clark County,NV and you cannot just use highways/freeways as some sort of "median" or guide. The most NOTICEABLE "rundown" or in your words "poor" is somewhere around North of Downtown Las Vegas.

Wow. This cringe worthy thread is not dying. Why are you guys indulging this neck beard. Don't respond to anymore of his questions, this character is trolling you.

Just remember, old wealth members will do all they can do to keep any of their wealth a secret, even driving older cars and buying clothing from thrift stores and, largely, living in the older areas of town like Huntridge.

My neighbor in Phoenix lived in a rather barren 50 year old house in north central Phoenix, and when she died, my other neighbor revealed that $1 million of her estate was to go to St. Gregory's Church, and the rest to St. Vincent De Paul. We were close neighbors but I had no idea she was worth that much and she didn't even own a car.

Very easy....the neighborhoods with expensive houses/apartments are usually higher income area.
But I agree, some rich people rather live in modest means.

HAHA wow that's the dumbest thing I've yet seen posted on this forum. Entire neighborhoods in Henderson don't have a single house below $1 million, and areas like MacDonald Highlands are full of extremely expensive houses and it's the top zip code in all of the Las Vegas Metro area, not anywhere in Summerlin. In fact most of the most expensive houses aren't in Summerlin, they're in Henderson. That may or may not change in the future, because Summerlin has plenty of room to grow. But get out of here with that nonsense.

The Summit Club and The Ridges, both in Summerlin, are by far the most exclusive developments in Las Vegas. I know many people who live in MacDonald Highlands who are moving to The Summit Club in Summerlin. The momentum of the ultra-wealthy is moving to Summerlin. The gap between Summerlin and nice Henderson in 10 years will be huge. As Iíve said previously on this forum the future delopments Howard Hughes and Discovery Land Co. are doing in Summerlin are unlike anything Las Vegas has seen before.

Do you mind stating what projects they have in the works? I know they have the Ballpark Arena which is nearing completion next year, and the new Hotel just proposed in downtown Summerlin. Along with new apartment complexes there in DT Summerlin. Are there any other projects or new developments going on up there? I'm not meaning new homes.

Yes, new high-end retail, dining and resort is going to be developed on the continuation of Summerlin Parkway just west of CC-215. This is going to be a great project with phenomenal views.

Wow that's awesome. Do you have the name of the project? I want to read up on it.
