And the Las Vegas Trend is....:DRUMROLL: High Density!

Las Vegas Cranes a Peak at Downtown & HighrisesOK, not a big surprise, I KNOW!  Everyone KNOWs about the high rises that are being built on the Las Vegas strip.  Those are being marketed to appeal to vacation property or second property home buyers!  It really doesn't have much appeal to the average person who lives and works here.  The price tag involved is a big turn off too! 

Most of the highrise developments that are being built are mixed use developments.  This means that you can stay, eat, shop and work in the same building.  This concept is new to us but not new to NYC or LA.

One of the most successful mixed use developments off strip is The District at Green Valley Ranch.  It is eclectic, cultural and appealing to the locals.  I am seeing signs pop up all over town for mixed use developments.  I personally love "The District" so I hope they are just as beautiful and well planned!

The other types of Las Vegas New Construction trends in high density housing you are NOT seeing are the patiothree story homes high density trends in las vegas homes, three story homes and regular condominium/townhome developments.  Builders are using the most of their available land to provide affordable housing solutions for the entry level market. 

These high density single family solutions are packed in pretty tight and most provide a small yard (patio sized, hence the name!) and community amenties for roaming such as a park, community pool, spa, etc.  Some are even being built ultra urban style with roof top decks!  Couple that with balconies and your patio sized backyard and you have a decent amount of outdoor living space on each level!

The higher density homes just entered our market on a larger scale during our boom (2003/2004) and when it became apparent that we would have to make the most of a scarce resource we don't have much of ~ Land!
