LAS VEGAS (November 16, 2016) – Skye Canyon recently recorded its 100th home closing. To mark the occasion the 1,700-acre master-planned community in Northwest Las Vegas is donating 100 bicycles to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. The bikes will be presented to the non-profit at Skye Center on Giving Tuesday, November 29 at 11 a.m. Andy Bischel, President/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs will accept the donation from Garry Goett, CEO of Olympia Companies, developer of Skye Canyon.
Las Vegas Cyclery helped to facilitate the purchase, assembly, and delivery of the bikes that are a range of youth sizes for both boys and girls. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada donated 100 youth helmets.
“Skye Canyon emphasizes, encourages and offers unique fitness opportunities for all ages. Biking is a highly popular activity and we’re pleased to introduce kids who might not have otherwise had an opportunity to own their own bicycle to this lifelong sport,” said Goett. “Olympia has been a longtime supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada. Knowing that local kids will have the opportunity to enjoy one of life’s great simple pleasures, riding a bike, through this donation is exactly the kind of community connection we envisioned when creating Skye Canyon. We can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season and celebrate our community’s milestone.”
In August, Skye Canyon rounded out phase one of the development when Pardee Homes opened its Keystone neighborhood, joining other Skye Canyon phase one homebuilders Century Communities, Pulte Homes, and Woodside Homes.
“We are very fortunate to have a great partner like Skye Canyon that cares about our youth. 100 brand new bikes will lead the children to a healthier and active lifestyle. We look forward to a long relationship with Skye Canyon!” said Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, President & CEO, Andy Bischel.
Skye Canyon’s official grand opening was in March 2016 when more than 3,000 prospective homebuyers toured Skye Canyon Park, the centerpiece of the community. Skye Canyon Park includes Skye Center, an 8,142-square-foot rustic contemporary community center featuring Skye Bistro, a coffee, and wine bar, an outdoor patio, fireplace and fire pits, as well as interactive home finding tools. It also features Skye Fitness, a 9,663-square-foot state-of-the-art facility that includes an outdoor Junior Olympic swimming pool, yoga and spin rooms and top-of-the-line fitness equipment.
“Today’s homebuyer in Las Vegas is interested in maintaining a particular type of lifestyle. At Skye Canyon our amenities cater to those who prioritize community connection, an active and healthy lifestyle and who have a deep appreciation for the area’s natural aesthetics,” said Goett. “We are very proud of Skye Canyon Park, which is a unique amenity for a master-planned community, and our homebuilders, who embraced the Skye Canyon vision to redefine indoor-outdoor living in the Las Vegas market.”
Skye Canyon is the first master-planned community to open in Las Vegas in over a decade. It is the vision of Olympia Companies, developer of Southern Highlands, along with Stonehill Capital Management and Spectrum Group Management LLC. The 1,700-acre master-planned community in Northwest Las Vegas is referred to as the base camp for the great outdoors with its fusion of healthy lifestyles and outdoor activity.
