New Frontier To Close - Replaced by Montreux

As other casino operators announce plans to redevelop their older properties, New Frontier owner Phil Ruffin hasn't had a lot to say about his long-awaited plans for his aging Strip hotel. Ruffin says he's not sitting on his hands.

The name of his planned megaresort will be Montreux, after the Swiss resort town with a famous annual jazz festival. "These things take time," Ruffin said. "It can take nine months to do an architectural plan and five months to come up with parking plans." "I'm trying to do something nobody's ever done before, which is develop a resort without any help or partners. It's very hard to do," he said.

To capitalize on the resort town's brand, Ruffin said he's also working on plans to bring the internationally known Montreux Jazz Festival to the new property, which is scheduled to break ground sometime next year and open by 2010.
