Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 17, 2014
Skye Canyon is proud to announce it has officially sold to its first two builders – Pulte Homes and Woodside Homes. Combined, this first phase represents the initial 80 acres of land to be developed in the Vegas master planned community. Skye Canyon is the first large-scale residential development to break ground in the Las Vegas Valley since the great recession and at full build-out is slated for 9,000 homes and a variety of outdoor amenities.
Pulte Homes is one of America's largest homebuilding companies with operations in approximately 50 markets throughout the country. The Company is one of the industry's most versatile homebuilders, able to meet the needs of multiple buyer groups and respond to changing consumer demand.
“Pulte is excited to bring its innovative consumer-inspired home designs to this fantastic community that offers homebuyers a wonderful lifestyle,” said Ryan Breen, president for PulteGroup’s Las Vegas Division. “Skye Canyon will offer Pulte homebuyers a robust and active, outdoor lifestyle in a great location.”
Woodside Homes is a significant regional builder whose reputation for quality is backed by decades of experience. Woodside has been working on perfecting the homebuilding and buying process for nearly 40 years.
“We are excited to be one of the first builders in Skye Canyon, in the coveted northwestern area of Las Vegas," said Mike Casey, Director of Sales and Marketing for Woodside Homes of Nevada LLC. “With our ability to build a home based on our buyers’ needs and wants, we are a natural fit for this development and we’re confident we will have a home design that will fit anyone, especially those looking to incorporate the active lifestyle of this community.”
Designed to complement the surrounding scenery, the 1,700 acre community in Northwest Las Vegas will offer a variety of amenities including community parks and an extensive system of hiking and biking trails. Along with well-planned homes, the property, located along Highway 95 and Horse Rd. is currently preparing land for commercial and gaming use. Additional hand-selected builders are expected to be announced soon and the first models are slated to open in the fall of 2015.
“As the master developer of Skye Canyon, we are excited to bring our expertise to this new development, just as we did for our other premier community, Southern Highlands,” said Garry V. Goett, Chairman & CEO of Olympia Companies. “We are only selecting the highest quality builders for Skye Canyon to provide well-designed, beautiful homes. This fantastic piece of property will continue to fully come to life as we work to complete infrastructure for future homes as well as the development of our wonderful amenities.”
