Brief History Of The Ridges And Summerlin Las Vegas
Created in 2000, The Ridges Las Vegas was (and still is) the ultimate addition to the Summerlin master-planned community.
The first neighborhood to be developed in The Ridges was Promontory at The Ridges, which quickly sold its more than 50 ultra-exclusive properties.
Additional neighborhoods soon followed, attracting affluent residents from around the world.
Fun Fact: The Ridges Construction Began When Summerlin Was 10 Years Old
Although neither The Ridges nor the greater Summerlin master-planned community is that old, the history of Summerlin dates all the way back to the 1950s.
When Howard Hughes Jr. purchased the land in 1952, his original goal was to turn it into an aviation center and relocate his California-based business concerns there.
But plans changed, and the land ended up sitting dormant until 1998, when Summa announced the start of the Summerlin project.
Since then, the master-planned community has seen many changes, such as the completion of the Summerlin Parkway in 1990 and, significantly, the development of The Ridges in 2000.
Development in Summerlin is still ongoing and won’t conclude until 2030.
The Ridges Las Vegas Gated Communities
The Ridges is home to 14 upscale neighborhoods. They are as follows:
What sets Topaz Ridge apart from other neighborhoods in The Ridges is that it only offers single-story homes.
Don’t let these single-story properties fool you, though. All of the homes in Topaz Ridge are luxurious and come with many customized features, such as outdoor kitchens and courtyards.

One perk of living in Falcon Ridge is that it’s located close to Club Ridges, allowing residents to easily access the club’s fitness center, swimming pool, tennis courts, and more.
Boulder Ridge has some of the best homes in the entire Summerlin community, hence why the neighborhood has such a high average price point.
The average price for homes in Boulder Ridge is $4MM, although you can find homes that range anywhere from $1MM to $8MM.
