LAS VEGAS-- The Howard Hughes Corporation® and Crate and Barrel announced today that the retailer signed a lease to open a store at Downtown Summerlin®, the 106-acre premier fashion, dining and entertainment destination located in the heart of the acclaimed Summerlin® master planned community. This will mark the first Nevada location for the industry-leading home furnishings brand, known for its exclusive inspirational designs, excellent value and superb customer service.

“We are pleased to welcome home furnishings leader Crate and Barrel to Downtown Summerlin," said David R. Weinreb, Chief Executive Officer of The Howard Hughes Corporation. “As yet another first-to-market retailer, this addition further cements Downtown Summerlin as the ultimate shopping, dining and entertainment destination for the entire Las Vegas Valley.”

Crate and Barrel will be located on the northwest end of Downtown Summerlin and will neighbor Lazy Dog and Ethan Allen.

“We are excited to announce the opening of our first Nevada location in Summerlin,” said Doug Diemoz, Chief Executive Officer of Crate and Barrel. “We've wanted to be in the Las Vegas area for some time, and the enthusiasm surrounding our Fall 2013 pop-up shop confirmed just how important a market this is for Crate and Barrel. Downtown Summerlin is the ideal location, and we can't wait to open our doors.”

“This is such an exciting addition for Downtown Summerlin and the residents of southern Nevada,” said Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager, District F. “Crate and Barrel has long been rumored to be coming to our valley, so the reality of its arrival is even sweeter and speaks to our area’s economic vitality. We are pleased to welcome Crate and Barrel to both Downtown Summerlin and Clark County.”

Since opening in October 2014, Downtown Summerlin has welcomed an estimated 17 million visitors, opened 115 retailers and steadily increased occupancy to 90% leased. The initial phase consists of 1.4 million square feet of mixed use development on 106 of the approximate 300 developable acres in the heart of Summerlin. ONE Summerlin, Downtown Summerlin’s first Class-A office building, is currently 70% leased; and Downtown Summerlin’s first multifamily residential development, the Constellation, a joint venture of The Howard Hughes Corporation and the Calida Group, will soon begin leasing 124 luxury rental units.
