LAS VEGAS – Skye Canyon, a 1,700-acre master-planned community in Northwest Las Vegas, will light the monuments at the entrance of the community on Monday, March 14, 2016. The monument is located at the corner of West Skye Canyon Park Drive and North Grand Canyon Drive. Garry Goett, CEO of Olympia Companies, the developer of Skye Canyon, will officially turn on the lights to the new community at 7 p.m.
Designed by NUVIS, a landscape architecture firm, the monument’s Vegas-inspired lighting elements are juxtaposed with a natural stone veneer and color palette, mirroring Skye Canyon’s mix of modern amenities with the great outdoors. Its towers are strategically placed to frame the community’s view of Mt. Charleston. At 38 ft. in height, the monument will be visible to guests and residents as they exit U.S. Highway 95 at West Skye Canyon Park Drive.
“The color palette and materials chosen for the distinctive monument provide visual orientation and harmoniously define the tone and character for the entire community,” said Robert Stone, NUVIS’ executive vice president.
The monument will contain varying light patterns and themes that will change with the seasons and holidays.
“It is important to us that our residents and guests be greeted by a monument where the design is a celebration of the unique immersive lifestyle offered at Skye Canyon,” said Goett. “NUVIS captured this idea perfectly in the design of Skye Canyon’s monument.
Skye Canyon’s grand opening celebration is taking place Saturday, Mar. 19, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It includes a farmers market, kid-friendly activities and a Passport to Win giveaway with a $1,000 cash grand prize for those who tour model homes from Century Communities, Pulte Homes, Inc. and Woodside Homes. Other prizes include outdoor gear, clothing and gift cards.
