Historic Frontier soon to be dust

Within the next 24 hours, New Frontier Hotel will be imploded. As usual for Las Vegas, change is constant. The Frontier is being demolished to clear the way for the Plaza Hotel complex, that will be like the one in New York City. The project will be in the multi-billion dollar range. The 34.5 acre property was purchased for over one billion dollars, making it some of the pricest Las Vegas real estate on the strip.

Construction is slated to start in 2008 with a completion date some time in 2012. Early reports state that the project will have a 3,500 room ultra luxury hotel, retail shops, convention space, dining and condominiums. No word yet on whether they will condo hotel units like the Cosmopolitan or regular residential high rise condos like ones at the Sky Las Vegas.

Yet another huge construction project to hit the strip.
