Tallest hotel in the US has gained preliminary approval as Crown Las Vegas Resort hotel and casino by Clark County commissioners and the Federal Aviation Administration this week. It will be located in the old water park of Wet N Wild Las Vegas Nevada real estate near the Saraha hotel on the Strip.
The first architectural plan for the $5 billion mega resort and Las Vegas, NV hotel, included the tallest building west of the Mississippi, at 1,888 feet. The Crown Las Vegas Resort Hotel tower has been scaled down due to air traffic concerns to 1,064 feet, slightly smaller than the top of Stratosphere. The Stratosphere’s tower does not include any hotel rooms.
Crown real estate in Las Vegas will include meeting space, 3,000 square foot showrooms, retail, 250,000 square foot casino and 5,000 rooms.
The first phase of development could open in about three and a half years with another in 2013.
The hotel and resort is a joint venture between Australian billionaire James Packer, with casino ownership in Canada, Australia and Macau, and Christopher Milam, a Texas based developer.
Christopher Milam has agreed to buy the Wet N Wild real estate for $475 million. With the previous concept of a 1,888 foot tower and the current 800 feet less, the design might take a turn for an additional tower. Some close Turnberry Place luxury Las Vegas condo residents are concerned of what this might do to their views. Source: Review Journal
