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 #7


IMG_9271a

Welcome to Echelon.  A project started and abandoned by Boyd Gaming on the LV Strip on the site of the Stardust Hotel.   When will this monstrosity get finished, who knows?  Until then it’s just another silent concrete and steel reminder of the construction insanity that swept across Las Vegas a few years ago.  I wonder if “condo” sales were part of the business model on this thing?  Imagine you spend big bucks on a room at Wynn/Encore or Trump and your room faces toward this mess?  Nice.
