Over 3,000 prospective homebuyers attended the public grand opening of Skye Canyon, the next generation master planned community, on March 19.
Prospective homebuyers enjoyed a free pancake breakfast and smoothies from the Skye Center Bistro. Other event activities included a farmers market produced by Connors Farmers Market, which is known for offering exceptional farm-to-community experiences. Local vendors included C&D Honey Company, Van Dyke Farms, and Winder Farms among others. There were also a variety of kid-friendly activities throughout the event.
Guests also participated in the Passport Giveaway where they had the opportunity to win $1,000 in cash and other prizes by touring model homes from the community’s Phase 1 homebuilders, Pulte Homes, Inc., Woodside Homes, and Century Communities. Skye Canyon’s most recent addition, Pardee Homes also participated; the builder’s model home park will be ready later this summer so guests learned about its neighborhood Keystone at the Pardee Homes booth. Other prizes included a Star Trac Spinner bike, Samsung Galaxy tablets and four $250 Visa gift cards.
The 1,700-acre master-planned community in northwest Las Vegas is referred to as the basecamp for the great outdoors with its fusion of healthy lifestyles and outdoor activity. Prospective homebuyers also had a first look at Skye Canyon Park, which includes Skye Center, an 8,142-square-foot rustic contemporary community center featuring The Bistro, a coffee and wine bar, outdoor patio, fireplace and fire pits, as well as interactive home finding tools. Guests also toured Skye Fitness, a 9,663-square-foot state-of-the-art facility that includes a juice bar, yoga room, and an outdoor Junior Olympic swimming pool.
“Skye Canyon offers a variety of floor plans and amenities for residents who enjoy leading an active lifestyle and who value having a connection to their community,” said Garry Goett, CEO of Olympia Companies, developer of Skye Canyon. “Our vision for Skye Canyon is to blend the natural outdoor environment with our amenities such as Skye Center, our network of hiking and biking trails and community parks creating a one-of-a kind community experience in the Las Vegas. No other community offers what Skye Canyon offers.”
Skye Canyon is located on US Highway 95 at Skye Canyon Park Drive (formerly Horse Drive). Offering entry-level, move-up and luxury neighborhoods for individuals, couples, families and active adults who share a passion for outdoor activities, wellness and immersive living, it is the first master-planned community to break ground in Las Vegas in nearly a decade. Along with commercial and gaming offerings, Skye Canyon will include 9,000 home sites and unique amenities like designated bike lanes, an extensive trail network for hiking and biking, an amphitheater and Skye Center, a state-of-the-art community and fitness center, among others.
