The Las Vegas Premium Outlets is an 11-acre upscale shopping mall located in downtown Las Vegas, in the heart of the Las Vegas Downtown Redevelopment Area. The site is across the street from the World Market Center, the Clark County Government Center, and the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute respectively. It has become a highly sought after tourist destination, filled with high-end, name-brand shopping opportunities.
JW Zunino provided the landscape design for all phases of this project, including perimeter landscape planting, as well as planting within the pedestrian circulation areas between the boutique shops. Through the use of thoughtful plant material selections, JW Zunino was able to paint the ground plane with lush and comforting compositions – which provide year round interest to accent entryways and pedestrian gathering areas. Repetition of materials encourages pedestrian movement within the space, and the utilization of large palm tree plantings aids in wayfinding for shoppers. Perimeter planting incorporates lower water use flowering plants and decorative rock groundcover to harmonize with the established surrounding context, providing a more natural and native design aesthetic.
