Paradise Palms is a Mid Century Modern housing tract in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the 1960s Molasky Development hired the young architectural firm of Palmer and Krisel fresh from their success building hundreds of successful tract homes for Alexander Homes and other custom projects in Palm Springs, California.
“This unique subdivision was the first planned community in Clark County. We used curvilinear street patterns instead of rectilinear. Paradise Palms won the American Builder magazine award for one of the best planned communities in the U.S. “The architects were two young men by the names of Palmer and Krisel. The interior designs were by world renowned C. Tony Pereira.” Irwin A. Molasky
