Chanel J12 Las Vegas Style: Serious Wrist Candy

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

There can be no question that Las Vegas luxury real estate has risen to world-class status right along with the golfing, dining, nightlife and shopping to be found in our fabulous city. Hey, did someone say shopping? Ask yourself this question…..what good does it do to have a sumptuous Las Vegas luxury home if you can’t supplement it with the appropriate trimmings? The MS Las Vegas Real Estate Blog has taken on the tremendous responsibility of keeping readers up-to-date on the latest in luxury goods to accompany your palatial estate in the hottest city in the galaxy. Past blog posts have highlighted the latest in diamond encrusted satellite cell phones, the local Lamborghini dealership and luxury suites at The Palms, just to name a few. Now it’s time to feature the latest in luxury wrist candy, the new limited edition Chanel J12 Casino timepiece. How limited is this edition of the coveted Chanel J12 watch collection? The only Chanel stores in the world to provide access to the one dozen J12 Casino’s in the world……are the two Chanel stores in Bellagio and Wynn Las Vegas. That’s right, there are only 12 of these incredible J12’s available for purchase. If you have to ask, believe me you can’t afford it ($56,000). Absolutely stunning craftsmanship and design by Chanel has created a J12 evocative of a distinctly French 37-slot roulette wheel. The bezel consists of 18 rubies, 18 black ceramic stones and one emerald, all in baguette, as if you had to ask. Designed exclusively for the Las Vegas Chanel locations, it should come as no surprise that Las Vegas is one of the strongest local markets in the universe for the entire Chanel J12 line. Measuring out at 41-millimeters, the J12 Casino makes a statement that is impossible to ignore, just like the city itself. Ready to make your statement in Las Vegas? The Michelle Sterling Team at Prudential Americana is ready to roll right with you. We’re major players…..and you?

Active Adult Community Sun City Anthem

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

The very first residents began arriving in their new Sun City Anthem homes back in 1998 and it’s there where our story begins. At MS Las Vegas Real Estate, we honestly had no idea what was about to happen, and it’s very likely that no one else did either. By the end of this year, Sun City Anthem real estate will take the final step on an incredible journey and close the last 300 Henderson homes in the master-plan. To date, Sun City Anthem has completed and closed over 6,500 homes, and in so doing, has become the most successful residential master-planned community in Southern Nevada history. What did Sun City Anthem have to offer that was so appealing? For starters, buyers could choose from 12 single-story homes in floor-plans ranging from 1,496 to 3,175 square feet. Without question, Del Webb quality and a concerted effort from Day 1 to create a true sense of community added to the allure of Sun City Anthem as well. It certainly didn’t hurt that the Anthem community boasted some of the finest golf courses in the Las Vegas valley either. The Michelle Sterling Team at Prudential Americana has sincerely enjoyed doing business on behalf of both buyers and sellers in the Sun City Anthem community for almost eight years now. We currently feature a highly attractive home at a highly attractive price in the Solera active-adult community at Anthem. Feel free to give us a call at 888-349-2595 for more information.

McCarran International Airport: A Leader in Technology and Customer Satisfaction

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

The Southern Nevada economy has consistently ranked as one of the top growth engines in the entire country for the better part of a decade. One of the most important components of the Las Vegas success story is McCarran International Airport. Would you believe that an airport in the middle of the Nevada desert is ranked fifth busiest in the United States and tenth busiest in the entire world? The MS Las Vegas Real Estate Blog has been repeating the same thing for over two years now and it gets more obviously true every day. Las Vegas, Nevada is THE next major American metropolis and there’s just no doubt about it. Read on and learn more about our technologically advanced airport, one of the finest and most efficient in the world, and tell us if you’re not convinced about our future metropolitan status.

McCarran International was the first airport nationwide to tap into CUTE technology. Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE) is one of those advanced McCarran features that you’re literally not supposed to notice. What does CUTE do? Every ticketing counter and every gate station in the entire airport can be used by any airline in the McCarran mix. The flexibility provided by such a system means that everything from last minute gate changes to sudden airline bankruptcy filings can be responded to quickly and efficiently. Resources can be redeployed to newly open desks and terminals “on a dime” simply because all terminal equipment is Common Use. McCarran International Airport is also first in the nation to adopt RFID tags instead of barcodes for luggage. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags are 99% accurate, which can be highly appreciated by anyone that has ever lost a highly important piece of luggage while traveling. Because the technology is so advanced and so reliable, the TSA has approved three non-airport luggage drop-off locations in the Strip corridor to facilitate tourist travel more conveniently. This is quite an accomplishment in a post 9/11 world. McCarran International has also begun construction on the fourth wing of the ever expanding D concourse, a project that will add nine additional gates. Even more significant is the development of the new stand-alone Terminal 3, slated for completion in 2011. Self sufficient operationally, Terminal 3 will have 14 gates and it’s own arrival, departure and ticketing functions independent of the main terminal.

What results have been achieved by all this hard work, new construction and technological development? McCarran International Airport was recently rated highest in overall passenger satisfaction for the large airport category by J.D. Power and Associates. How impressive is that? The tremendous ability of McCarran International to “keep pace” with the growth and development of Greater Las Vegas is but one of many reasons that we feel so confident about the future of the Las Vegas real estate market. The Michelle Sterling Team at Prudential Americana Group Realtors is at your service should you decide to purchase a Las Vegas home and become a participating member of the next great American city!

The Streamline Tower Vegas Grand Prix Broker Event!

Friday, April 6th, 2007

Over 300 Las Vegas real estate agents and brokers were recently whisked to the 16th floor of the newly unveiled ($365 million) Building B at World Market Center for a gala event featuring Streamline Tower luxury condos. Mark Stark, CEO of Prudential Americana Group Realtors, kicked off the evening with a fantastic presentation that captured the tremendous potential inherent in the 14-billion dollar Downtown Redevelopment Plan. Las Vegas is nothing less than THE next major American metropolis. A key component of this stunning urbanization process is the revolutionary transformation of our downtown corridor. As Mark pointed out to the assembled guests, the revitalization of Downtown Las Vegas seeks to fulfill a vision very much “on par” with the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego or Miami’s South Beach district. It’s never wise to bet against Las Vegas……and you can be sure that this town will provide the perfect mixture of brains, guts, cash and audacity to make the “Downtown Dream” a reality. In fact, it’s already happening, which brings us back to Streamline Tower.

Imagine yourself securing the residential status provided by the premier Las Vegas high rise condo development in the downtown entertainment district. Streamline Tower residents will soon indulge in 21 stories and 275 units of luxury high-rise living at the intersection of Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard, the very heart of downtown! Imagine finding yourself just steps away from classic casino action, a wide variety of casual and gourmet dining venues, hip watering holes and red-hot nightclubs. Streamline Tower places you in the middle of the action that IS the downtown experience. Need to escape the intensity of it all? Chill-out on the rooftop pool-deck and savor expansive views of the surrounding mountains by day and the shimmering Vegas lights at night.

Already very much part of the downtown culture, Streamline Tower is the exclusive high-rise sponsor (and WiFi provider) for the inaugural Vegas Grand Prix. The 2007 Vegas Grand Prix (April 6-8) is a three day downtown non-stop party dedicated to the sport of racing. Scheduled special events include extreme sports and stunt demonstrations, a charity gala starring Jay Leno, a celebrity poker tournament and the feature event, the 2007 season-opener of the Champ Car World Series.

Pretty exciting stuff in what is arguably the most exciting city in the world.

The Continued Expansion of World Market Center

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007

Greater Las Vegas is the fastest growing upscale residential market in the country. Las Vegas luxury homes of every style and variety have exploded across the desert landscape over the past decade. There is no better recognition of the power, potential and depth of the Las Vegas luxury real estate market than the development of World Market Center. The contract furnishings and interior design industries have found a new home right in the epicenter of the next major American metropolis. It’s no accident that Las Vegas, Nevada was chosen as the site for 12 million square feet of state-of-the-art exhibition space. World Market Center will reach completion in 2012 and be comprised of eight monumental structures spread across a 57-acre campus. How much progress has been made thus far? Weighing-in at $345 million, Building B has just been completed and features 16 floors of cutting-edge showrooms (300 total). As you may have guessed, Building B is the second fully completed structure and construction on Building C is already well underway! Take note of another important factor in this story……economic diversification. You won’t find a single slot machine anywhere in World Market Center. Las Vegas is quite simply the next MAJOR American metropolis. Want a piece of the action? MS Las Vegas Real Estate is standing-by with a team of real estate professionals fully prepared to present every residential facet of the most dynamic city in the world.
