Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Las Vegas Abandoned Construction Site #4

The latest addition to this sad spectacle across Las Vegas is "Manhattan West" -- 215 and Russell Road on the way to Summerlin.   The project appears to stacked condos and may have been very close to completion.  Now it just sits there abandoned.  Perhaps one day it will get finished... 

These failed "condo" projects are everywhere across the city.  Some are finished but completely empty, others are like this -- abandoned.

  1. Cutesy names and minor luxuries can't overcome economic reality. Offer shuttle services to the strip and heated shaving mirrors and dog walkers and you will still get buyers who, although flattered, still look at economic reality.

  2. As I wrote in the email I sent to Jimmy, my friend was the Project Manager for the Architect who designed the project.
    The contractor was a paver who had no business building any thing taller than an 8" curb.
    When I lived in Vegas I drove by this every day. It could have been a nice project but the incompetence on the contractor messed it up....
