Another historic property being renovated

I had reported on our other blog about the Sahara being bought, so it was only a matter of time before the news would come out that it was being torn down. The Sahara was featured in the original Ocean's 11, starring Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. County approval was granted. The mid-rise tower will be completed demolished and the two high rise towers remodeled. The property will remain open during all of the construction (I'm guessing no implosion) and construction should be complete by 2011, helping to fuel the booming construction industry for another 3 years. The renovation will add another several hundred rooms to the property.
