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 #11

Map picture

“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.
