In 1996, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was negotiating a property swap with the Arizona-based Olympic Group. Olympic Group completed the first phase of the BLM land exchange deal in October 1996, while the second phase was completed on April 26, 1997. The following month, the Clark County Commission gave tentative approval for Olympic Highlands, an 1,850-acre luxury master-planned community with a total of 6,000 to 8,000 homes. The development could also include casinos, offices, retail centers, and an industrial park. Olympic Group hoped to break ground in late 1997. The community would be located south of the Las Vegas Strip at the southern end of the Las Vegas Valley. The property was bordered by Cactus Avenue to the north, Jones Boulevard to the west, Interstate 15 and Lake Mead Drive to the east, and Larson Lane to the south.
