Home / Blog / FIRST LOOK—Model Preview A Soaring Success for Skye Canyon

Even thunderstorms couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm for SKYE CANYON — the next generation master planned community in Las Vegas. Nearly 2,000 people turned out for our First Look event on August 1st to tour model homes from Woodside and Pulte Homes— our first two homebuilders. When completed, SKYE CANYON will cover 1,700 acres and include neighborhood parks, hiking and biking trails and plenty of open space.

SKYE CANYON Founders enjoyed early access to the event to tour the ten model homes prior to the general public. They also received a Founders-only gift. Event highlights included a radio station remote with Mix 94.1, and there were face painters, a balloon artist, artisan flatbread pizzas, gourmet desserts and scenic backdrops for photos.

Visitors were able to see plans for Skye Center, an 8,142-square-foot contemporary-rustic community center, which will include a juice bar, coffee shop, open-air cantina and wine bar. Skye Fitness, a 9,663-square-foot facility, will feature a swimming pool, splash pad, sports field and basketball court, and both are slated to open in early 2016. Century Communities, our latest builder to come on board, is beginning construction soon.

We’d like to thank all the folks who came out and all our partners as well. We were excited to show our progress and give everyone a peek at what’s to come.
