Del Webb Housing In Las Vegas History
Del Webb was the first builder in Summerlin in 1989 and now is home to over 15,000 residents. The area was so popular that Del Webb bought more land in an adjacent village to continue the community within Summerlin.
In the resale market, Summerlin, McDonald Ranch, Aliante, and Anthem’s Del Webb/Sun City communities are known to be fabulous places to live. Their activities, amenities, and community centers are top-notch and include multiple swimming pools and sports courts. Casino’s arrange transportation as well as residents forming group activities.
Residents who have skills teach classes; clubs form to meet like-minded neighbors, and clubs are also formed to assist people living in the community. The assistance that I’ve heard so much gratitude about is people who can drive others to doctor or treatment appointments and then wait to bring them home. This is a no-charge service based upon the idea of giving and giving back when you can.
The homes that Del Webb build have a vast array of options where you can upgrade their basic home. Their basic home comes with tile in wet-areas and traffic paths, and carpet in the bedrooms. Walk-in showers in the master bath have safety bars wherever
Emergency alert systems connect with the gates or flash exterior lights for the roving patrols. Extra-large laundry rooms are designed to be altered or transformed into offices and craft rooms. Golf communities include golf cart parking in the garage.
Del Webb – The Beginning
Del Webb is an exemplary builder of Active Senior Communities in the United States but didn’t start that way. Delbert E. Webb’s family was not wealthy as he grew up, and a familial illness had him quitting school to bring in a paycheck as a carpenter’s apprentice for a few years.
He went on to play semi-pro baseball while doing carpentry jobs to make ends meet. While playing a baseball game with San Quinton Prison, Del contracted Typhoid Fever and, after barely surviving, was advised to move to a dry climate. With $100 in their pockets.
Mr. and Mrs. Webb moved to Phoenix, AZ, when he was 29. Having started building grocery stores, he applied for government contracts during the depression, building over 3 million dollars of buildings a year.
Towards the end of the depression, the NY Yankees owner needed to sell, so Webb and two others bought the team for 2.89 million dollars. In the late 1930’s they diversified into schools and airfields. During WWII, they built the Japanese internment camp at Poston, AZ, among other government facilities.
Del Webb Corp. In Las Vegas
The next expansion Del Webb Corporation made was moving into Las Vegas, teaming up with Bugsy Segal in 1946 to build the Flamingo Hotel. He became part-owner of the Flamingo corporation going on to build many Flamingo Hotels.
After meeting Howard Hughes in Las Vegas, Del Webb Corp. built several Hughes factories and office buildings. The 1950s were all about houses, hotels and hospitals, and a few smaller projects for the Del Webb Corporation. Then, of course, their World Champions, The NY Yankees.
Del Webb – Sun City
In January 1960, the first retirement community, Sun City, Arizona which became the model for retirement communities across the United States. Going public on the NYSE later in 1960 led to the acquisition of the Sahara Hotel and The Mint in Las Vegas while ironing out a model retirement community model. Del Webb Corp. continued to build all types of high rises, Madison Square Gardens, and the LA Art Museum in the 1960s and created an infrastructure in some cities and several South American countries. Del Webb died in July 1975, but Del Webb Corp. remained strong by building retirement housing, schools, hospitals, hotels, high-rises, convention centers, stadiums, and airports.
In 1987 corporate decided to restructure and focus strictly on their extremely successful retirement communities, which lead to selling off their other divisions. Still having a relationship with the Howard Hughes Corporation, when HHC started Summerlin, they asked Del Webb to become a big player.
Today Sun City Summerlin has 3 18-hole golf courses, 4 community centers, and about 1000 acres. Sun City Summerlin is one of Summerlin’s 25 villages within the master-planned community, the largest in the United States.
