One thing I have noticed amongst clients looking to buy a Strip condo is their interest in the history of Las Vegas, so here is a bit of background information.
The Strip started out life as Route 91, thus the name of some of
its first nightclubs: 91 Club. Back in the 1940s 91 Club struggled
to compete with Downtown, and folks weren’t attracted to spending
their leisure time on what was considered the Los Angeles Highway.
Things changed with the opening of El Rancho Vegas in April 1941.
This casino hotel, developed by Thomas Hull, had retail,
restaurants, shows, horse riding, a pool, and 63 rooms. It was the
beginning of the Strip as we know it. The path to mega-resorts
offering rooms, restaurants, entertainment, sports and even Las
Vegas Strip Condos was in motion.
Thank you for reading.
Robert Swetz shows his creative eye capturing the many angles of MGM City Center in Las Vegas Nevada (Must see Post)
I spent several hours photographing MGM City Center on Black Friday 11-27-2009 and it was the third day in a row that I went down to try and satisfy my needs as a professional photographer.
I have captured a set of photographs that are truly amazing and at least half of my pics will not be posted because I will be sending them to the Architects that created MGM City Center before they are posted over the world wide web.
These photographs on this post really show how LasVegas is stepping into the future of building structures and I am very impressed once again with these photographs and I hope you like them!
