Water Features at the Shops at Summerlin
Posted in News -
Having made the list of USA TODAY’s 10 Best Locations, the Shops at Summerlin in Las Vegas, Nevada have everything it takes to make it world class destination. Located west of the strip, Downtown Summerlin is one of Las Vegas’ newest and most popular shopping centers equipped with a wealth of selections for shoppers to choose from.
Developed by the Howard Hughes Corporation, the Shops at Downtown Summerlin have all the necessary components that successful modern retail destinations need.
With 1.6 Million square feet of retail space, the shops in this 22,500-acre miniature village have been broken down into 11 color-coded areas. Each colored district has a distinct style and content. Surrounding the shops, this walking-focused destination is not only equipped with an array of architectural variety, but the landscape variety and foliage create shaded and cooled areas. This allows patrons to take their time as they meander through the districts in comfort.
Along with the amazing architecture, what separate the Shops of Summerlin from other retail destination centers is the immersive experience their state-of-the-art water features constructed by OTL throughout the center create.
Near the 180,000-Square foot, two-level Macy’s, in the Pink District, OTL carefully placed 32 individually controlled pop jets, each with RGB lighting and capable of shooting water six feet in the air within a 30-foot circular basin of stunning black granite.
Near the Dillards, in the sage district, six LED white lights illuminate a round basin crowned by a sculptured bronze dome pinpointed with holes through which synchronized mists of fog cool delighted shoppers from morning into the night.
At the destination’s main passageway, a statement-making water wall features a constant flow of water that elegantly follows the trails of kiln-formed Wavelet decorative glass created by Nathan Allan Glass Studios, Inc.
For the urban retail center’s main water feature, OTL orchestrated twists of water that cascade down three sides of an iconic, illuminated 35-foot bronze sculpture conceived by SWA Architects and fabricated by Metal Arts Foundry in Lehi, Utah. The continuous flow of water congregates in a 100-foot long, kidney-shaped stepped reflecting pool constructed by OTL with sandstone quarried from Utah.
