Las Vegas native Roberto Orellana has lived in Summerlin® nearly all his life. A graduate of Bishop Gorman High School who left Nevada briefly to attend San Diego State University, the 26-year-old is now a business development executive for Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., a global gaming giant that now also calls the master-planned community home.
YOUNG PROFESSIONAL FIRST RESIDENT AT TANAGER, DOWNTOWN SUMMERLIN'S NEWEST LUXURY APARTMENTS
Just a few weeks ago, Orellana and his buddy, 31-year-old Zac Zaher, a commercial real estate broker, moved into their new luxury apartment at Tanager®, Downtown Summerlin®’s second apartment complex that is helping to meet growing consumer demand for luxury rental homes for a generation that prefers the flexibility, convenience and more carefree lifestyle of an apartment with all the perks of a suburban community.
“At my age, I’m not looking for a forever destination,” said Orellana, who now enjoys a five-minute, two-mile commute to work. “Even though I could afford to buy a home, I don’t want to be tied down, nor am I ready for all that comes with home ownership. I am looking at this chapter of my life as an adventure, and I can’t think of a better place to be than Downtown Summerlin.”
“I have many friends who are planning to move here for all the same reasons that I did,” said Orellana. “The ability to walk across the street to Downtown Summerlin to catch a movie, grab coffee or a drink, grocery shop and even go to a ball game at Las Vegas Ballpark isn’t lost on me. I can literally live a full life right in my own backyard. That’s pretty cool.”
Orellana said his favorite feature of his new digs are the apartment’s floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a stunning view of the entire city, including the Las Vegas Strip. “Not only do we have Downtown Summerlin at our doorsteps, we have the whole city at our front door. Not many people can say that.”
Tanager is the newest and second luxury apartment at Downtown Summerlin®, the 400-acre urban center taking shape in the heart of the Summerlin master-planned community and conveniently located just east of the 215 Beltway on the corner of West Sahara Avenue and Pavilion Center Drive.
Boasting 267 residences ranging from 660 to 1,300 square feet and offering one- and two-bedroom units, Tanager is gated and offers the ultimate urban-style living in the city’s premier master-planned community. Onsite amenities include Dwelo Smart Technology apartments, game room, a pool with cabanas, fitness center and dog park.
