Sunstone, a 3,000 home housing community located at US 95 and Skye Canyon Park in the upper northwest valley of Las Vegas, has broken ground.
As a result of the combined efforts of Lennar, Woodside Homes, and Shea Homes, the project will cover about 630 acres. This will include 30 acres of park and green space.
Homes sales in the community are expected to start in 2021. The land was purchased in early 2018, but hasn't been developed yet. This comes at a time when housing prices and demand have hit all-time records.
The purchase of the 600+ acres is the largest land acquisition in the Las Vegas in decades.
The groundbreaking ceremony was an event attended by the builders as well as local politicians. It marks the beginning of a massive project to add new homes to a market that has been struggling to have enough inventory for years.
