Home / Blog / We Did it Again! Skye Canyon Named a Top-25 Master-Planned Community in the United States

Why is Skye Canyon so appealing to homebuyers? It could be the nature-effect. Studies by academic researchers show when people are immersed in beautiful natural surroundings, our brains and bodies are restored. Taking in the natural environment, like Skye Canyon’s awe-inspiring views of the Spring and Sheep mountains and our magical mountain sunsets, allow the brain to rest and recover from the stress of city life. We are just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Las Vegas, so residents arrive home from work and easily slip into relaxation mode.

The appeal of a daily mini-vacation could be why Skye Canyon once again landed on RCLCO’s mid-year list of the United States Top-25 Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities. Skye Canyon has created amenities that facilitate social interaction and community connection like walking trails, Skye Bistro, and Skye Canyon Park. Skye Fitness includes yoga and Pilates instruction along with a junior Olympic-size swimming pool so our residents can lead the healthy, active lifestyle they desire. Skye Canyon’s programming creates fuller lives for residents as they gather to hike and kayak or enjoy family Trivia Night at Skye Center.

Add to all that fun a line-up of award-winning home builders offering modern floor plans that consider the environment and function. Home shoppers appreciate our home builders’ design elements that allow residents to savor Skye’s unique views. Floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that when opened to a pool or patio give our homes a resort feel. Skye Canyon’s homebuilders offer both one and two-story homes, with floor plans to accommodate both the young families and empty-nesters. Now it’s easy to understand Skye Canyon’s allure.

Since our grand opening in 2015, Skye Canyon has also been named on the Top Selling 50 Master-Planned Communities list by John Burns Real Estate Consulting and has received two Silver Nugget Awards, for Best Active Lifestyle and Best Master-Planned Communities Parks and Amenities. We also received the 2018 Urban Land Institute Placemaking Award for Excellence in the Healthy Place category.
