Over the past couple of years, Sin City has been gaining momentum as the go-to destination for all of the major sports leagues-and the pace doesn’t seem to be letting up in the slightest. Suddenly, living in a newly renovated, luxury Park House condominium in Las Vegas puts you smack dab in the middle of Fanville, USA. From Stanley Cup Finals hockey to National Finals Rodeo to professional basketball and soccer, Las Vegas has it all. And soon will have a lot more.
The Vegas Golden Knights (NHL) Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past nine months you might be familiar with what may just be the most incredible story in sports history. The National Hockey League expansion Golden Knights, playing in their first year of existence, made it all the way to the sport’s biggest stage, the Stanley Cup Final, before losing a hard-fought series to the champion Washington Capitals. It’s hard to overstate the impact the immensely popular team has had on the community and the NHL. Rumor has it other leagues, including the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball have been monitoring how the team was received and are themselves preparing a push into our market. The team plays its games at T-Mobile Arena, a mere eight miles from the Park House condominium residences, and practices just five miles away, at City National Arena in Downtown Summerlin.
Las Vegas Raiders (NFL) In March of 2017 the NFL owners voted by a count of 31-1 to allow the Oakland Raiders to relocate their immensely popular team to Las Vegas. Raider Nation will be converging upon our city starting with the 2020 NFL Season and will make their home in the multi-billion dollar, state-of-the-art Las Vegas Stadium currently under construction west of Interstate 15 near Mandalay Bay. Season tickets are sold out years in advance and the silver and black promises to be a massive entertainment sensation for at least eight Sundays each fall. Saturdays will prove equally exciting as a rising UNLV football program will also make the stadium their home field. A luxury condominium residence at Park House practically qualifies as tailgating, being a scant seven miles away.
Las Vegas Aces (WNBA) Las Vegas has always been a basketball town, dating back to the massive success of the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels teams of the 1990’s. And now professional basketball has finally made its debut on the Strip! Led by 2018 WNBA first overall draft pick A’ja Wilson and legendary coach Bill Laimbeer, the team has kicked off its 2018 season at the Mandalay Bay Events Center and looks to build a strong “All In” fan base in this hoops-obsessed valley. The season runs through August, and your courtside seat is just minutes from your poolside cabana at Park House.
Las Vegas Lights FC (USL) Professional soccer is a natural for sunny Las Vegas, and the Lights FC are yet another brand new professional sports franchise celebrating their inaugural season in 2018. Their spirited United Soccer League matches are drawing thousands of rowdy and passionate fans to Cashman Field in downtown Las Vegas. If other sports are any indication, Major League Soccer’s rapid growth and popularity is sure to spread to Las Vegas in the coming years, bringing excitement and yet another “must-see” attraction to the entertainment capital of the world. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the Park House foosball table is a short ten or so mile dribble to the Lights’ home pitch.
Las Vegas 51’s (MLB AAA) You’re a real, homegrown Las Vegas sports fan if you cheer on the 51’s. Soon to be moving to their new home, a brand new state-of-the-art ballpark in Summerlin, the New York Mets AAA affiliate squad has produced several Major League All-Stars over the past few years. Cy Young Award candidates Jacob DeGrom and Noah Syndegaard both got their start right here in Las Vegas. The team also hosts regular dollar beer nights throughout the summer months. If you lived in one of Park House’s luxury condo residences, you could practically bike your way to the field for some peanuts and Crackerjacks.
NASCAR (Two Races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway: March & October) If the smell of burning rubber gets your engine revving, Sin City feels the need for speed more than most cities. NASCAR recently announced that Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be hosting a Monster Energy Cup race in October now in addition to its traditional March race weekend. Total mileage from your secured luxury Las Vegas condo garage to the LVMS Neon Garage? Just a lap short of 23 miles.
UNLV Basketball (NCAA) NCAA basketball fans will remember the legendary Runnin’ Rebel teams of the 1990’s who regularly challenged for the National Championship, rocking the Thomas and Mack Center and making coach “Tark the Shark” a household name. The rejuvenated program has recently had a #1 overall NBA draft pick and several first round picks take the floor, bringing a whole new energy to campus and re-inspiring their loyal fan base. From Park House to the home of the Rebs, a quick ten-minute drive.
Shriners Hospitals for Children Open (PGA Tour) With dozens of world-class courses in the valley, it’s no secret Las Vegas is a golf mecca. What makes Sin City a golf fan’s paradise is not one, but two PGA TPC facilities. Perfect for hosting official PGA tour events. Fans look forward all year for that sunny fall Sunday afternoon on The Hill, a luxurious pavilion overlooking the final hole’s championship action. Best part is, Park House residents can practically golf cart to all of the action.
Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Believe it or not, the National Finals Rodeo is one of the oldest sporting events to be hosted by Las Vegas. An institution for locals and thousands of visiting cowboys and cowgirls each year, NFR is saddling up for a 60th season of bucking action. More than 170,000 rodeo fans descend on the Strip for all of the boots and buckles each December. And yeehaw! You can practically toss a horseshoe to the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV from the Park House condominium residences.
Senior VP of Sales for Park House, Brian Krueger, himself an avid sports fan, noted the growing evolution of Vegas as a live sports powerhouse. “I’ve lived here for 14 years and I’ve never seen anything like it. This town is starved for sports, filled with passionate and loyal fans. After what the Golden Knights did, I imagine the leagues are lining up to get in here.”
This transition from a predominately gaming based destination to a vibrant entertainment capital has energized the city in ways even the most optimistic observers couldn’t have imagined. The sporting effect on the real estate market is already profound, and being reflected in rising prices throughout the city.
Krueger adds, “If you’re a sports fan this is, and will be for the next decade at least, the place to be. Owning a condo here gives you access to some of the most exciting and significant events anywhere in the sports world. Even if it’s a second home, you can come here for the weekend and theoretically catch three or four major professional sporting events in the same weekend, allwithin a short drive from Park House.”
