Kestrel is situated on an exquisite expanse of elevated land west of the 215 Beltway, offering vistas from select vantage points throughout the area. The district is designed to offer walkable connectivity between neighborhoods and open spaces, including carefully planned pedestrian access to future neighborhood services and community parks.

“Kestrel is the next district to take shape in the exciting and dynamic Summerlin West area on elevated topography that overlooks the Las Vegas Valley,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience for Summerlin. “Builders like Taylor Morrison are meeting the demand for homes that are designed with today’s families in mind, offering open floor plans, flex spaces and smaller footprints that mean less maintenance to deliver more experiential living.

“Taylor Morrison is a longtime Summerlin builder whose track record of designing, building and delivering popular homes speaks volumes about what’s to come for Crested Canyon.”

Now, in its 32nd year of development, Summerlin delivers more amenities than any other community in Southern Nevada. These include more than 300 parks of all sizes; resident-exclusive community centers, pools and events; 200-plus miles of interconnected trails; 10 golf courses; 26 public, private and charter schools; a public library and performing arts center; Summerlin Hospital Medical Center; houses of worship representing a dozen different faiths; office parks; and neighborhood shopping centers.
