Should They Re-Name the Block Turnberry Lane?

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

What in the world are we talking about? There is a stretch of Paradise Road right between the Sahara Hotel and the Las Vegas Hilton that you could plausibly rename Turnberry Lane. Why so? Turnberry, Ltd. has built two spectacular Las Vegas high rise condo developments (within two blocks of each other) right on that small section of Paradise Road. Turnberry Place condos (a total of four structures) have the distinction of creating the market for Las Vegas high rise condos. Until this project went skyward and sold like crazy, no one imagined such tremendous demand in the Las Vegas real estate market for this type of luxury product. Right up the street is the new sister property aptly named Turnberry Towers Las Vegas. Stretching skyward at the corner of Paradise Road and Karen Avenue, Turnberry Towers condos will be comprised of two 45-story buildings. The east tower is scheduled for completion in June of this year and the west tower is slated for occupancy in the spring of 2008. The Michelle Sterling Team at Prudential Americana is ready to take you on a tour of Turnberry Lane! Give us a call at 888-349-2595.

NBA All-Star Game Another Huge Success for Las Vegas!

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

We did it! The NBA All-Star Game was a huge success! Las Vegas showcased this fantastic sporting event with a style and flair that no other city could possibly match. It should go without saying that it was a sellout crowd of 15,694 in the Thomas & Mack Arena. The Western Conference cruised to an easy win (153-132) thanks in large part to the MVP performance of Kobe Bryant. But the game itself was only part of the show. Christina Aguilera performed at halftime, Danny Gans sang the national anthem and Wayne Newton sang “Viva Las Vegas” during the player introductions. The entire show was broadcast in 210 countries, which took no less than 10 satellite television trucks (five times more than usual). What did the NBA big-shots think of it all? “We couldn’t imagine a better reception, and we thank you for it,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said after the game.

MS Las Vegas Real Estate can tell you for sure that it was our pleasure to be host-city for such a prestigious sporting event. How much pleasure? The All-Star extravaganza brought in an estimated $26 million in revenue over the weekend. It took over 6,000 hotel rooms (spread out between seven hotels) just to handle the cast and crew of All-Star weekend. More than 25,000 tourists descended on Las Vegas specifically for All-Star weekend. Food and drink sales at Thomas & Mack Arena hit a new record ($160,000), shattering the previous record of $135,000 set during National Finals Rodeo. Pretty amazing stuff from the most amazing city on the planet!
