Formerly industrial land, this remediated site– cleared of the industrial chemicals that had leeched into the soil and water many decades ago – will be the home for a new sustainable community of approximately 40,000 residents and workers that rejuvenates East Henderson socially, economically and environmentally.

Cadence was modeled after traditional neighborhoods that have smaller neighborhood parks spaced closely together and gridded streets for better pedestrian mobility. Additionally, the community will have three mixed use districts including an urban center which is planned to be the new downtown of East Henderson.

  • Over 500 acres of land was remediated as part of a brownfield reclamation project on the property.
  • A majority of all homes are within a 1/4-mile walking distance of a park, open space or nature way
  • The property will provide a link to the Las Vegas Wash, the region’s only natural open space in the valley.
  • Two major nature ways will provide areas for storm-water collection, water-quality treatment, creation of habitat and pedestrian/ bikeway connections.
    Reclaimed water will be used for landscape irrigation of public streetscapes and parks.
  • Drought tolerant or climatically adapted plants will be used in streets and parks to help conserve water
  • Streets were designed in a grid pattern, narrower than most, helping to reduce the amount of asphalt paving from a typical city roadway profile.
  • A BRT station is planned within the urban district of the property. Additionally, other community bus lines will provide public transit.
  • LED lights are being used in the parks and considered for major streets which will further reduce the amount of energy consumed by this community.
