Two More Developments in the High-Rise Market!

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

The Greek Isles Hotel on Convention Center drive (right next to the Marriot) is yet another building in the immediate strip area that is sitting on land that’s just too valuable for the building itself. Moshe Mor, president of M&M Real Estate Development of Queens, N.Y., said Monday his investment group will pay $52 million for the Greek Isles, which Chicago-based Mark IV Realty owns. Mor said he hopes to close the transaction in April. What are the plans? To demolish the current 206-room hotel (of course) and build a 600-room luxury condo project (yes, another one) on the main portion of the site. Las Vegas High-Rise Condos….there’s no end to the projects because there is still no end to the demand. The product demands global attention and the market for High Rise Las Vegas real estate reflects this more every day. The Showcase Mall (right on the strip in front of MGM) is about to get in the game as well. San Francisco-based City Center Retail and partner Angelo Gordon & Company bought the Showcase Mall two weeks ago as well as an adjacent 3/4 acre parcel where Denny’s now sits (next to the Walgreens). Mark Stefan, a City Center Retail principal, said Monday that the new owners will add up to 80 luxury condominium units on the parcel where Denny’s restaurant now sits just a few feet north of the Showcase mall. “It’s one of the few residential projects that is right on the Strip,” Stefan said. “A lot of the other (announced condominium) towers are set back, but this is (ideal) for somebody who wants to be right in the center of things.” MS Las Vegas Real Estate is fully prepared to present the entire range of options in the market for Las Vegas High Rise Condos.

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

While the number of new-home reservations continues to expand at Mountain’s Edge, so does infrastructure work at the 3,000-acre master-planned community in the southwestern valley. Company officials said that when the first residents move in, they will see that flood-control measures have been taken, numerous roadways have been paved, and common areas have been landscaped with mature trees and plants. Additional infrastructure has either been completed or is near completion, including a power substation that will serve the community of more than 12,000 homes. Custom streetlights have already been installed. Mountain’s Edge is planned to include a fire station, four elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school, shopping centers, restaurants and office space. MS Las Vegas Real Estate would be happy to introduce you to this exciting new master-planned community.
