“Canyon Edge” is one of the more unusual abandoned construction sites I have come across since moving to the Las Vegas area. Location is about a quarter of mile north of the intersection of Horizon Ridge Pkwy. and Green Valley Ranch Pkwy. in Henderson. This is a collection of “single family” homes of about half which were completed. The rest of home sites have never been built on.
I would imagine that these homes were selling for well over $1 million dollars before the crash, now the the entire project sits empty with not one residence occupied. I will give some credit to the bank that owns this property – they have the place surrounded by a chain link fence and there is 24 hour security protecting the place. I know this because I got chased away from the property one afternoon while trying to get some close in photos.
These residences are modern looking and appear to be of high end construction. I just don’t see how they are ever going to get sold, even at a huge discount. Who wants to buy a home like this in a neighborhood that is half finished? I have a feeling these places are going to sit empty for many years.
Here are are a few photos the project. Though the homes appear to be finished and occupied, all these homes are empty.
