One of developer Roy Fey's most notable projects, Canyon View Estates engaged the talents of the Los Angeles-based architectural partnership of Palmer & Krisel. Built in several phases starting in 1962, Canyon View Estates was projected to be a 225-unit complex. Later, 45 units were eliminated to allow for more open space, creating a park-like setting that still exists today. In a November 1965 Palm Springs Life magazine advertisement entitled "The Wonderful World of Canyon View Estates" the complex was described as "Palm Springs' finest and most successful Condominium Homes."

On March 1, 2017 the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation sent checks of $1,500 to Canyon View Estates (CVE) Homeowners Association (HOA) #1, $500 to CVE HOA #2, $1,000 to CVE HOA #3, $1,000 to CVE HOA #4, and $1,000 to CVE #5 for a total of $5,000 in grant monies.

In a July 25, 2016 email a CVE HOA #2 representative reported that PSPF grant monies had been used to help convert landscape lighting to LED. Additionally, the grant helped support the HOA's ongoing xeriscaping effort.

On February 26, 2016 the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation sent checks of $1,000 to Canyon View Estates (CVE) Homeowners Association (HOA) #1, $1,500 to CVE HOA #2, $500 to CVE HOA #3, $1,000 to CVE HOA #4, and $1,000 to CVE #5 for a total of $5,000 in grant monies.

On March 18, 2015 the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation sent checks of $2,500 to Canyon View Estates (CVE) Homeowners Association (HOA) #2, $500 to CVE HOA #3, $1,000 to CVE HOA #4 and $1,500 to CVE #5 for a total of $5,500 in grant monies. The PSPF letters to the various CVE HOAs required that the grant monies be used "for community improvements, including, but not limited to, investment in the architectural integrity and historical character" of the various HOA [common properties] and [their] individual homes and elements.

On Tuesday, February 17, 2015 during Modernism Week 2015, PSPF held its "Grand" Canyon View Estates Tour. The popular house tour was attended by 300 enthusiastic tourgoers and showcased 10 midcentury "lifestyle" condominium units designed by the architectural firm of Palmer & Krisel in 1962. The tour's ticket price included a tour map and a copy of PSPF's 36-page tribute journal The Architecture of Desert Leisure.
