A few weeks ago I mentioned the Waldorf=Astoria project at Lake Las Vegas
. I realized that I have never written in depth about the massive Waldorf=Astoria project in Las Vegas
which was announced last fall and is set to break ground soon. That project will also have condo units as part of the Conrad Las Vegas, an $825-million, 60-story hotel that will be located on the Strip in the site that was formerly home to the La Concha Motel. This hotel will have luxury hotel rooms on the lower floors with floors 46 to 60 devoted to condo-hotel units (eight per floor). The building will also be home to five restaurants, a large spa and fitness center, an expansive network of pools, cabanas and lounge areas and retail space. Owners will have a separate residents' entrance and lobby, 24/7 concierge services, private elevators and access to Club Waldorf=Astoria, which will feature a piano lounge, a library, a screening room, a cigar bar and a wine cellar. The 2,000- to 5,000-square-foot residences and penthouses will have designer kitchens and baths, private balconies, walk-in closets, multi-directional views and fireplaces. They are priced $2.8 million to $10 million and completion is scheduled for 2009.Vegas Today and Tomorrow
has an interesting history of the project showing several incarnations of the tower before the current design. The question is though, is this project already sold out? One real estate blogger, Diann Tonnesen said
that the project was "oversubscribed just from word of mouth" while another real estate blogger Olivia McClellan
recently posted about the project which seems to indicate that there are units available.
