Implosion Makes Way for Project City Center Las Vegas
Tuesday morning at 2:34 am, the Boardwalk hotel was imploded to make way for the $5 billion Project City Center being developed by MGM Mirage Las Vegas. As you can imagine, this hotel and casino, located on the Las Vegas Strip was taking up some expensive real estate.
Project City Center will be filled with condos, one hi-rise being Cosmopolitan Condos, hotel rooms and shopping malls. It’ll be another major step for the condo craze on the Las Vegas Strip.
Construction on Project City Center Las Vegas is scheduled to be complete by 2009. And unlike other hotels, only Boardwalk’s main building will be imploded. The rest will be torn apart.
The Boardwalk hotel and casino was owned and operated MGM MIRAGE Las Vegas. The Holiday Inn hotel was built before the era of the huge casinos, and is small in comparison to many of its neighbors, Mirage Casino and Bellagio Vegas and across from the Aladdin, Paris, and MGM Grand.
The hotel’s Coney Island theme can be seen in front of the hotel with an original 1906 parachute drop ride and a wooden fake roller coaster. The hotel is comprised of 3 distinct buildings all built at different times in Las Vegas real estate history.
