New Joint : Crown Las Vegas

The days of the North Strip being bunch of patches of rubble seperated by a handful of vintage casinos has moved one step closer to history.

Australian gaming giant PBL has bought into the dubiously financed Las Vegas Tower project is planned for former Wet N' Wild dirt patch. The new property will be called the "Crown Las Vegas."

Crown Las Vegas will be adjacent to the currently stirring with construction $3.4 Billion dollar Fontainebleau site. Crown/PBL purchased $300 million dollars worth of Fontainebleau in April.

PBL has entered into an agreement with IDM Properties, a Texas-based property developer, and York Capital Management, a New York-based private investment fund to develop, construct and operate a new casino in Las Vegas - named Crown Las Vegas.

It surely is exciting to see what's going to happen to the north end of the strip. Fontainebleau, Crown Las Vegas, Echelon Place and the Project Circus-Circus Center are going to dramatically change the landscape. One can only wonder how long it will be before The Worlds Largest Gift Shop builds some condos on top of it.

Yep. It won't be long before the Strat is right smack dab in the center of things.
