The buzzy, newly renovated condominium townhomes at Park House are not only a stylish landmark of Las Vegas’ new urbanism, they’re riding the resurgence of one of the valley’s unsung neighborhoods: MidTown. West of Interstate 15 and the resort corridor, and bordered on the North by Spring Mountain and to the South by the 215 Beltway, the MidTown area is the perfect jumping off point (or nesting point) for everything Vegas has to offer in 2018 and beyond. Owning a condo in Las Vegas is exciting, owning one in MidTown Las Vegas gives you a hub for a complete, and completely convenient, lifestyle you won’t find anywhere else. Here are just 11 of the many reasons to take a look at this thriving part of town:
1. McCarran International Airport
For snowbirds and those on the move, MidTown is minutes from an airport that welcomes some 44 million visitors a year. Every major domestic and international carrier offers frequent service. And talk about convenience, residents could be sitting in a resort-style poolside cabana for mimosas at breakfast and lounging in a Cabo San Lucas, Mexico beach cabana for sunset margaritas. Local’s hot tip: park at the South Strip Transfer Terminal for free (up to seven days) and take the RTC Airport Express directly to McCarran’s Terminal 2.
2. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
If you buy a condo in Las Vegas you’ll no doubt find yourself gazing at the stunning natural beauty of the Red Rocks on the west side of the valley on many a clear desert day. If you buy a luxury condo at Park House in MidTown you’ll practically be living within them! Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is a world-renowned destination for outdoor enthusiasts and offers world class mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing year round. Local’s hot tip: buy an annual “America The Beautiful” pass and get the entire U.S. National Park System for the cost of a few visits to Red Rock.
3. Vegas Golden Knights Hockey
For those who are new to the valley, Las Vegas has officially become a hockey town! The NHL’s expansion Vegas Golden Knights are off to a historically hot start and are lighting the hockey world on fire. Having a condo in Las Vegas’s MidTown puts you right in the middle of the action. Homeowners will be nearly equidistant from the team’s game home, T-Mobile Arena on the Strip, and the team’s practice and corporate home, City National Arena in Downtown Summerlin.
4. Las Vegas Raiders Football
OK, so maybe you’re more into NFL Football than hockey. With a condo at Park House you’ll be closer to kick off than anyone in Summerlin or North Las Vegas. Forget game day traffic from the suburbs, the spectacular new stadium being built for the Raiders will be just over 7 miles from your luxury condo doorstep. Scheduled to begin play in Las Vegas for the 2020 season, the Las Vegas Raiders will surely be the biggest attraction in town for years to come. Why not have a front row seat to the action?
5. Golf, Golf and More Golf
With more than 50 golf courses, including two PGA TPC Courses, Las Vegas has long been a destination for year-round, world-class golf. Courses are spread from the southern Nevada/California state line to the northern reaches of Clark County and everywhere from the shadows of Red Rock in the west, to Lake Las Vegas in the east. Buying a condo in Las Vegas will give you access to all of these, but buying one in the MidTown area puts you in the ‘middle of the fairway’ so to speak.
Lost in all the glitz and glamour of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip is the city’s unexpectedly vibrant Chinatown area. Many of the resort corridor’s luminary culinary stars have opened outposts here and the food scene is among the best in the country. Take a trip down Spring Mountain Road and be sure to visit such stars as Chada Street (Thai), Raku (Japanese) or District One Kitchen & Bar (Vietnamese fusion). Having a condo in MidTown is as delicious as it is exciting.
7. The Arts
Las Vegas isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think of culture and the arts. Yet the city is host to a very vibrant cultural mix of performing arts, visual and public art. One destination of note is the relatively new Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Located in downtown Las Vegas’ arts district, the Smith Center hosts world renowned travelling productions of Broadway hits, orchestras and any number of musical virtuosos. Of interest to those who choose to make MidTown their home would be the upcoming development of the adjacent Symphony Park area, soon to be home to a mixed-use development sure to be the highlight of Las Vegas cultural life.
The good news is Las Vegas is home to world-class shopping, with nearly every global brand represented in outposts throughout the valley. The bad news? They’re spread to all corners, limiting even the most avid fashionista’s ability to shop without dropping. A condominium for sale in the MidTown area comes with one important shopping perk, convenience. The intersection of Flamingo Road and Durango is a virtual sweet spot for Vegas shopping action, nearby Downtown Summerlin, Town Square and many other retail hotspots.
9. Foodie Heaven
No question the Las Vegas Strip has long been a global foodie destination, and always will be. But the MidTown area is quietly staking a claim of its own to foodie stardom. Local favorites like Other Mama and Honey Salt are nearly at the doorstep of a Park House condo, and downtown’s hipster food scene is mere minutes away. Of course, if you have to “settle” for the Strip’s latest 5-star addition (you can count on about one every month!) you’ll be closer than practically any other condominium community in town.
10. The ‘Lock and Leave’ Lifestyle
Empty nesters, snowbirds, successful singles and anyone else enjoying their duly earned independence knows the ‘lock and leave’ lifestyle is the holy grail of urban living in 2018. One distinct advantage to living in a condo in Las Vegas’ mid-city area is the convenience of both location and privacy. And at many locations like Park House, these are amplified with secured underground parking and a fully secured building. As mentioned earlier you’ll be minutes from an international airport with nothing holding you back. Lock it, forget it and go!
11. The Medical Corridor
If you’re in the Las Vegas’ medical community you already know where we’re going with this, the industry is growing like never before in Southern Nevada. Many of those buying a condo in Las Vegas are doctors, physician’s assistants, techs, nurses and executives of the dozens of hospitals and medical facilities all over the valley. For professionals in these specialties, the MidTown area is particularly convenient, being located in a virtual “medical corridor” between Southern Hills Hospital and UMC Trauma Center.
