It may have seemed like a blast from the past, but with a new look.
Saturday the Inspirada master planned community hosted a multi-community Grand Opening to mark the opening of a new 8,500-home development. It was the largest sales blitz in the Las Vegas area in years and reminded some people of the celebrations of new home communities during the housing boom.
Hirschi Masonry, the premier masonry contractor in the Las Vegas area, was right in the thick of things, displaying our expertise in both residential and commercial masonry. We are participating in both onsite and offsite masonry construction of the new Inspirada, whose rebirth could mark a milestone in the recovery of the homebuilding industry in Las Vegas.
No master plan has debuted so many neighborhoods and models in one day since the downturn, said Dennis Smith, president and CEO of Home Builders Research in Las Vegas. You’d have to look to the days of 30,000 local building permits a year — back in 2005 or 2006 — to see this kind of single-day sales event. The confidence boost that results from the opening could have ripple effects across the housing market, Smith said.
“This is huge for home builders and contractors. If, in fact, it is as successful as people hope — and early reports are that it may be — then it really helps everybody with their projections on what’s going to happen in the future, and they’ll be able to hire more people.”
As the article and the accompanying video attest, parks play a large part in the design and appeal of Inspirada, with a number of existing parks and several more under construction.
Did someone mention parks?
Hirschi Masonry is playing a major role in the soon-to-be-completed parks in Inspirada. We are building the masonry walls and columns for the structures in two of the new parks and the rockery retaining walls in a third.
In addition to this work we are also bringing our Expect More philosophy to one of the major projects of Inspirada – Pardee Homes’s Alterra. Hirschi Masonry is installing the block walls and the stone veneer on this exciting new project.
The rebirth of Inspirada signals a new chapter in Las Vegas’s comeback and Hirschi Masonry is excited to be in the middle of it all!
