Hope springs eternal for condo developers in Las Vegas. Sure condo projects are folding faster than inexperienced poker players at the big tables but that hasn't stopped the announcement of new projects. The latest is the Boca Raton condo complex. Boca Raton is located on the "South Strip" a bit far away from the main drag. The mid-rise projects will have 756 homes spread out over four buildings. Amenities include two pools, a 10,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, concierge service, fitness centers, outdoor trials and a private screening room. Phase One is set to be completed in December with 172 homes and prices range from the mid $300s to over $1 million. They've even got their first celebrity client, NBA player Paul Pierce, shown here with his Boca Raton shirt.
