Plans have been announced for the first master-planned community in southern Nevada since the recession.
The Olympia Companies announced plans to build Skye Canyon, a 1,700-acre community near Grand Teton Drive and U.S. 95 Wednesday. Plans include 9,000 homes along with commercial development and gaming uses.
There are also plans for a hiking and biking trial system and parks designed for outdoor activities.
The same company developed the Southern Highlands master-planned community in the southwest part of the Las Vegas valley and the Southern Highlands Golf Club.
Groundbreaking for the new community is set for the spring.
