Downtown Summerlin is located in the community of Summerlin, Nevada, in a village known as Summerlin Centre, which is bordered by Charleston Boulevard to the north, Sahara Avenue to the south, Hualapai Way to the east and Desert Foothills Drive to the west. Aside from being located on 400 acres in the middle of Summerlin Centre, Downtown Summerlin was also once planned under the name "Summerlin Centre".
The Howard Hughes Corporation began planning Summerlin in the late 1980s, along with plans to build a town center, which would ultimately become the village of Summerlin Centre. Tom Warden, vice president of community relations for Howard Hughes Corporation, said the village of Summerlin Centre would be "the center of Summerlin geographically, as well as many other ways. It will be the center of entertainment, business, retail, culture and education." The town center would include a shopping mall, office space, and a casino resort, as well as movie theaters and restaurants.
The planned Summerlin Town Center project would include the proposed mall as well as office space. The project would be developed by The Rouse Company and its subsidiary, The Howard Hughes Corporation. Development of the Summerlin Centre village was underway in 1999. The village was expected to take five years to complete, with the mall scheduled to open in 2004. By December 2003, the upcoming Red Rock Resort was intended as the centerpiece of a planned downtown Summerlin area, known then as Summerlin Centre or Summerlin Town Centre. Summerlin Town Centre would include the proposed mall – rescheduled to open in 2006 or 2007 – as well as office and residential components. In 2004, General Growth Properties (GGP) purchased The Rouse Company and its Howard Hughes subsidiary, gaining control of the property.
In October 2005, ground was broken on the property for a new 150,000 sq ft (14,000 m2) headquarters for Business Bank of Nevada. Summerlin Centre was to feature at least 1,000,000 sq ft (93,000 m2) of office space upon completion. The Red Rock Resort opened in April 2006, as part of the Summerlin Centre project. In May 2006, GGP announced details regarding the 400-acre mixed-use project, which would feature 1,200,000 sq ft (110,000 m2) of retail space, including four anchor stores. Other planned features of Summerlin Centre included restaurants; office space; a 250-room, 11-story hotel; and at least 5,500 residences, ranging from houses to condominiums. GGP planned to begin construction of Summerlin Centre in spring 2007, with a grand opening scheduled for fall 2008. Summerlin Centre would ultimately become known as Downtown Summerlin. Following delays, the mall portion eventually opened in October 2014, also under the name of Downtown Summerlin.
One Summerlin, a nine-story office building, opened at Downtown Summerlin in April 2015, followed by the City National Arena in 2017. Two Summerlin, a six-story Class A office building with approximately 150,000 sq ft (14,000 m2), was opened in August 2018. The Las Vegas Ballpark opened at Downtown Summerlin in 2019.
The Downtown Summerlin Shopping Center is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment district. Its directory includes over 125 stores and restaurants, including major retailers like Macy's and Dillard's. It is also home to a Dave & Buster's and a Regal Cinemas movie theater.
Local events are held in Downtown Summerlin throughout the year. Popular events include farmers markets, outdoor fitness classes, wine walks, holiday festivals, and visits from celebrity guest speakers.
