Mirage Las Vegas

The Mirage Las Vegas to Close Down July 17, Rebranded into Hard Rock for 2027

LAS VEGAS, NV – A firm date has been established for the end of yet another iconic piece of Las Vegas history, as the Mirage Hotel & Casino will close its doors for good this summer as its ownership plans to rebrand and redevelop the property into the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Guitar Hotel Las Vegas and an anticipated reopening approximately three years down the line.

The Mirage – which originally opened in 1989 – will be shuttered for good on July 17 and will see the property undergo a multiyear redevelopment to transform it into a new Hard Rock-branded resort with a nearly 700-foot guitar-shaped hotel by 2027, according to Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen in a release put out this week.

We’d like to thank the Las Vegas community and team members for warmly welcoming Hard Rock after enjoying 34 years at The Mirage,” Allen said. “We’d also like to thank the unions, community leaders, local and state government organizations and the Gaming Commission for their support and fair negotiations over the past year. Also, we are grateful to MGM for assisting with our transition.”

The Mirage Las Vegas transferred operations in December 2022 from MGM Resorts International to Hard Rock – the gaming arm of the Seminole Tribe of Florida – who purchased the rights to operate resort for $1.075 billion; this marks the first time that a Native American tribe has run a Las Vegas Strip-based casino in history.

While Hard Rock announced plans to continue operating The Mirage under its original name for a limited amount of time, the stated plan was to re-brand the resort with the Hard Rock name in 2024 and redevelop the building into the same trademark guitar-style shape as other Hard Rock resorts.

As of the July 17 closure, The Mirage will be demolished to make way for a brand-new resort which will include a 600-room, 660-foot-tall project situated along Las Vegas Boulevard – slated to be built exactly where The Mirage’s iconic volcano attraction was located – with 49,000 square feet of gaming area and 96,000 square feet of retail and restaurants; amenities will include a pool, spa, fitness center, and salon.

Knievel

New Home of Evel Knievel Museum Begins Construction in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV – Formerly located in Topeka, Kansas, the upcoming new home of the museum dedicated to celebrating the life and daredevil accomplishments of stunt performer Evel Knievel began construction this week in Las Vegas.

Ground was broken on the 32,000-square-foot Mission Linen building located at 1001 South First Street in downtown Las Vegas, which in addition to featuring the Evel Knievel Museum will also have retail tenants including Mothership Coffee Roasters and a pizza parlor with a heavy metal music theme.

It is currently unknown when the museum – helmed by developer Dapper Companies – is expected to be completed, but once it is, it will be a fitting tribute to the legendary entertainer, according to Kelly Knievel, son of Evel Knievel.

I can’t think of a better place to display the legacy of Evel Knievel than Las Vegas,” he said “With guts, charisma and showmanship, he built himself a legacy that’s still going strong 50 years after that crash at Caesars Palace. We’ve got all of my dad’s memorabilia, plus the latest and greatest razzmatazz, fitting for the ‘King of the Daredevils.’”

Co-founder and principal owner of the Evel Knievel Museum, Mike Patterson, noted that the establishment first opened its doors in 2017 in Topeka; later, plans were announced in 2021 to move it to Las Vegas.

The museum, Patterson said, was brought into existence to gather and preserve countless examples of memorabilia, photographs, documents, and other artifacts chronicling the life and deeds of one of the most famous stunt performers ever to live for future generations to experience.

[The museum] has garnered numerous prestigious awards over the years,” Patterson said. “The accolades caught the attention of J. Dapper, inspiring him to make it his mission to create a space for the attraction to move from Topeka to Las Vegas.”

Throughout his career in the 1970s, Evel Knievel – real name Robert Craig Knievel – attempted over 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps, with his most famous stunt being an attempt to jump the fountains at Caesars Palace, which resulted in serious injuries. Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999, and would later pass away in 2007 at the age of 69.

Henderson

Henderson Community of Cadence Leading in Las Vegas Home Construction, Sales

LAS VEGAS, NV – A new report indicates that a community within Henderson known as Cadence has become the new leader in terms of both the rate of construction of new homes within its borders as well as sales within the Las Vegas Valley as a whole.

According to statistics provided by residential construction data company Zonda, construction within Cadence – located in the northeast section of Henderson – and its Symmetry Trails neighborhood has yielded 153 new homes completed within the span of the last 12 months, averaging at a rate of 12.8 built per month.

The mass construction efforts within Cadence are being spearheaded by approximately a dozen developers, including Century Communities and as one of the largest builders of homes nationally, Lennar.

Cadence is currently in its 10th year of development, with homes ranging in price from $400,000 to $700,000 and up, which is above the $425,000 median sales price for single-family homes in the Valley. When development of the community is completed in about five years, the number of homes is slated to be approximately 12,250; the current number sits at 5,200.

Coming up second behind Cadence in terms of the development of new homes in the Valley is Saguaro North Landings – situated in the western Valley, southeast of Enterprise – which so far has seen homebuilder KB Home erect 151 new residences and counting in the past 12 months.

New home construction in Las Vegas appears to be returning to levels previously seen prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Zonda report notes; ground was broken on 9,600 single-family homes in the fourth quarter of 2023, which represents an improvement over pandemic-era levels. However, that number is still below the recent peak of home development in the Valley, which occurred in the first quarter of 2022, at which time ground was broken on an 13,229 homes.

10918 Summit Club Dr, Summerlin, NV 89135

Summit Club Home Sale Sets All-Time Las Vegas Record at $35 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – The $35 million sale price of a home in The Summit Club in Summerlin has set the all-time record for Las Vegas, with the irony bring that the residence in question is next door to last year’s previous record-setter at $30 million, the former estate of pop singer Celine Dion.

The 1.5-acre mansion – located at 10918 Summit Club Dr, in The Summit Club’s exclusive luxury resort community Discovery Land Company, home to numerous celebrities and billionaires – has five bedrooms, seven baths, six-car garage, and measures 11,427 square feet in size. It also boasts numerous high-end amenities, including a large infinity pool with a waterfall and a spa.

The $35 million price tag not only sets the record for a Las Vegas private home sale, but also the record for price per square foot, which in this case would be $3,063. However, Anthony Spiegel of IS Luxury, the agent representing both the buyer and seller, noted that the home may actually be 600 square feet larger than the official listing denotes, which – if true – would lower the per square foot price to $2,900.

The sellers, Patrick and Andrea Ramsey, originally purchased the Discovery Land Company lot for $2.5 million in 2016, later constructing the home in 2017. The names of the buyers are not currently listed in Clark County records.

Spiegel said that he was proud to have been the man behind the new all-time home sale record in Las Vegas, but that he was even more proud that he had served both the buyer and seller to the best of his abilities.

I only feel as good as my clients feel. I don’t do this for the accolades but do this in service to my clients and the city of Las Vegas,” he said. “We can’t sell homes if we don’t have a great city to live in. I’m proud that we command world-class valuations because they follow buyers and sellers. That’s what the city needs to become a world-class city.”

Las Vegas’ 21 high-rise condo

Prices of Luxury High-Rise Condominiums in Las Vegas Set New Record in Q1 2024

LAS VEGAS, NV – Prices of luxury high-rise condominiums in Las Vegas have set a new record during the first quarter of 2024, both in terms of the average sales price as well as the price per square foot.

According to data supplied by research group Applied Analysis, between the months of January and March of this year there were 162 closings in Las Vegas’ 21 high-rise condo towers, which is the same exact number of closings recorded in the first quarter of 2023 as well.

However, the difference is that the average condo sales price jumped significantly year-over-year; in Q1 2023, the average price was $641,181, whereas in Q1 2024 that amount was $828,902, which represents a whopping 29 percent increase.

In addition, the price per square foot in Q1 2023 was $527, but fast-forward to Q1 2024 and that amount was 16 percent higher at $613 per square foot.

And when compared to Q1 2022’s numbers, average condo prices are now 43 percent higher and the price per square foot is 29 percent higher in 2024.

The highest-priced Las Vegas condo sale in Q1 was a 43rd floor penthouse at the Waldorf Astoria which went for $9.5 million, an all-time record for the building; the previous record-holder at the Waldorf was an $8 million penthouse sold in 2022, which was the highest amount paid for any condo in Las Vegas that year.

The new record-holding Waldorf Astoria condo sale boasts three bedrooms and four baths, spread out over 3,922 square feet of living space. As can be expected given its $9.5 million price tag, the space features numerous high-end amenities and many exceptional and costly finishes, including quartz countertops and heated limestone flooring in the bathrooms and a kitchen with Miele appliances, a Gaggenau wine fridge, and a backsplash designed by noted artist Alex Turco.

Las Vegas Real Estate

Home Sales in Las Vegas Increase in April, Condo and Townhome Prices Hit All-Time High

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to a new report by industry group Las Vegas Realtors, home sales in the Las Vegas Valley increased during the month of April, while the prices of condominiums and townhomes hit a new all-time record high.

In April, the median price for an existing single-family home in Las Vegas was $469,000, an increase from March when that amount was $465,000 and a significant jump of 9.1 percent year-over-year.

However, the big news comes from the condo and townhome sector of the real estate market in Southern Nevada, which saw the median price hitting $290,000; this represents both a 7.4 percent increase from April 2023 and a new all-time record high, besting the previous record set in August 2022 of $287,000.

In April 2024, existing homes, condos, and townhomes in Vegas sold for a combined amount of 2,960, representing more than a 19 percent increase for homes in over a 16 percent increase for condos and townhomes.

In April, the Las Vegas Valley’s sales pace represented less than a two-month supply of housing; a healthy housing market is one in which approximately six months of housing units for ownership are on the market, experts say.

According to Las Vegas Realtors President Merri Perry, despite mortgage interest rates showing signs of rising once again recently, home prices in the Valley have nonetheless remained resilient and sales are now steadily rising.

Mortgage rates have been slowing down home sales this year, so it’s good to see more homes and condos selling,” Perry said. “Overall, demand continues to outpace the supply of homes here in Southern Nevada, and that’s driving up prices.”

At the end of April, there were 3,476 single-family homes and 1,248 condos and townhomes listed on the Las Vegas real estate market without any offers.

Oscar De La Hoya Mansion

Oscar De La Hoya Looks to Flip Lavish Mansion He Just Moved into for $20 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya certainly doesn’t like to let the grass grow underneath his feet, it seems, as just two months after holding a media event to publicly unveil the newly-constructed lavish mansion in Henderson’s affluent MacDonald Highlands community that he and his wife would be moving into, he is unexpectedly now attempting to flip the residence instead for a tidy sum.

Nicknamed “The Golden Boy of boxing,” De La Hoya, 51, had originally purchased the mansion in May 2022 – while it was still under construction by Las Vegas-based luxury builder Blue Heron Homes – in an all-cash transaction for $14.6 million, coming in as the priciest Las Vegas home purchase that month.

However, the legend of the squared circle has just now listed it on the open market for $20 million, which – if it sells for that amount – would represent a $5 million profit on his initial expenditure. It is currently unknown why he has decided to suddenly part ways with the property.

The residence, 720 Dragon Peak Drive, is located on a 1-acre plot of land and features 10,460 square-feet of living space, with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and an eight-car garage.

720 DRAGON PEAK DRIVE, HENDERSON – $20,000,000.00

De La Hoya reportedly spared no expense when it came to decorating the abode, building a trophy room celebrating of his boxing career in addition to a $500,000 man cave. The mansion boasts views of the city, mountain, and the famed Las Vegas Strip.

It also boasts numerous high-end amenities, including a golf simulator, game space, media room, home gym, hair salon, temperature-controlled wine room, and wet bar. In addition, the primary bedroom offers a spa-inspired bath and a private garden with outdoor shower.

The backyard features multiple pools – including one for doing laps – and outdoor dining spaces with TVs.

Over the course of his career, De La Hoya won 11 world titles in six different weight classes and a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics.

Report: North Las Vegas Home Prices Have Doubled Over the Past 7 Years

LAS VEGAS, NV – The prices of homes in North Las Vegas have doubled over the course of the past seven years according to a new study; a rate of growth that is one of the highest not only in the Las Vegas Valley, but the entire United States.

As per a new study released by Point2, the price of the average house in the city of North Las Vegas is currently $410,000. Not far behind in terms of home prices doubling within the span of time examined in the report is the city of Las Vegas itself, which took just a bit longer – seven years and one month, to be exact – to see home prices hit the point where they were 50 percent higher, with that number now being $430,000.

Point2 notes that, as far as price growth in the nation goes, North Las Vegas now ranks at number 10 and Las Vegas number 11; the two Southern Nevada cities occupy space on the report with other cities that have seen home values grow at similar rates, including Charlotte, North Carolina; Chandler, Arizona; and Cincinnati, Ohio.

Another Nevada city closely coming up behind North Las Vegas and Las Vegas is Henderson, which took eight years for home prices within its borders to double to $485,000. Other cities in Nevada have also shown exceptional growth in home values, although not to the degree of those already mentioned in this article. For example, it has taken Reno nine years to see prices double, with the average value there recently hitting $504,000.

As per a report by Redfin, home prices nationally continue to increase while new home listings continue to fall. The end of March saw the biggest decline in new home listings since January 2022, where they fell 6 percent from the previous month. Meanwhile, the median sale price of the average home in the United States as of April 21 was a record high of $383,725, a jump of 5.2 percent year-over-year.

tallest resort on former waterpark site

Las Vegas Real Estate Developers Planning on Building City’s Tallest-Ever Resort on Former Site of Waterpark

LAS VEGAS, NV – If the plans of a group of real estate developers in Las Vegas come to fruition, the city’s tallest-ever hotel/resort will be built on the former 27-acre site of the Wet ‘n Wild waterpark, previously the potential location of a failed entertainment complex project spearheaded by businessman and former basketball player Jackie Robinson called the All Net Resort & Arena.

The principals of Las Vegas-based real estate development company LVXP – CEO James Frasure Jr., Chief of Staff Christine Richards and Chief Construction Officer Nick Tomasino – stated that the multibillion-dollar ultraluxury resort will boast 2,500 rooms and will have an attached, cutting-edge sports arena geared specifically for NBA basketball games.

When speaking to the local media, Frasure noted that where the All Net Resort & Arena failed, LVXP’s resort project – which he said would be the city’s “first seven-star property” – would succeed due to a careful combination of the best developers in the business.

We are the antithesis of the previous project,” he said. “We are pulling together the best talent in the valley, such as Nick and some other people that we have worked with and the plan is to make this a success quickly and impactful for the whole valley.”

When completed, the currently-unnamed resort would feature rooms with numerous high-tech bells and whistles already in use by resorts overseas, as well as a casino, convention facilities, a retail plaza and food outlets. In addition, the attached arena is slated to have between 18,500 to 20,000 seats for events ranging from entertainment to sports. There are plans for a subterranean parking facility as well.

The project would create thousands of jobs for Las Vegas residents, Frasure said, and would employ sustainable development and green initiatives led by “world-class” construction partners and unionized labor. He also noted that the resort would serve as a large boon to the local economy.

Clark County Commission Chairman Tick Segerblom threw his support behind the LVXP project in a press release announcing it to the public.

This is a well-conceived project that has the potential to transform a valuable undeveloped land parcel into a highly productive destination that contributes meaningful long-term value to the community and visitors alike,” he said.

Vegas New Home Sales and Construction

Las Vegas New Home Sales and Construction Increasing Amid Lowering Mortgage Interest Rates

LAS VEGAS, NV – Amid lowering mortgage interest rates, new home sales in Las Vegas have begun to increase yet again, with February showing the most home closings in the region since 2007. As a result of the recent surge in purchases, home builders in Southern Nevada have ramped up their efforts to keep up with the renewed demand, purchasing land and pulling an increased number of permits.

Andrew Smith, President of Las Vegas-based Home Builders Research, reported this week that in February there were 1,110 new home closings, which represents a whopping 42 percent increase year-over-year. That is the most new homes sold in February in Las Vegas since 2007, when that number reached a very impressive 1,427.

The sales numbers for all types of homes for the first two months of 2024, both new and pre-existing, also show a positive upward trajectory. So far this year there have been a total of 1,888 sold, which is an increase of 31 percent year-over-year.

Smith noted that the increase in sales in Las Vegas can be attributed to lowering mortgage rates over the past month after previously peaking at 7.79 percent in October 2023; in January, 30-year fixed mortgage rates were at approximately 6.6 percent, and currently sit at 6.87 percent this week.

Builders have responded to the spike in sales in earnest, taking out 1,023 permits in February, an increase of 42 percent from February 2023. The total for the first two months of this year combined is 2,196 permits, a year-over-year increase of 79 percent.

Among buyers acquiring financing for their home purchases in February, Smith noted that the average loan amount was $419,421, with the largest loan being $1.3 million by Digital Federal Credit Union for a home in the Arches community in Summerlin.

Brightline

Construction Commences on $12 Billion Brightline West Railway Linking Las Vegas and Southern California

LAS VEGAS, NV – Construction on Brightline West – the long-gestating, $12 billion high-speed railway system linking Las Vegas and Southern Los Angeles – finally commenced on Monday after years of delays.

Brightline began the process of laying the 218 miles of track that the rail system requires, which will feature all-electric trains that, once up and running, will shuttle passengers between a terminal that will be built just south of the Las Vegas Strip and another new facility in Rancho Cucamonga in just two hours. Normally, the trip takes well over three hours by automobile.

Experts say that the railway will be used by approximately 11 million one-way passengers per year – or about 30,000 per day – and fares will be far cheaper than traveling by air. The trains themselves will have numerous amenities for passengers, including restrooms, Wi-Fi access, food and beverage sales, and the ability to check in luggage.

Brightline notes that the Brightline West rail system will be the first of additional railways they intend to build in the future to link other cities that are too close for flying but too far for driving to make either option practical, which is the case with Las Vegas and Southern California.

Brightline also noted that the railway could be responsible for removing “millions” of cars from the I-15, which would go a long way towards reducing pollution.

With the groundbreaking originally announced to take place back in 2020, the Brightline West project will take the form of a 34-mile stretch of track in Nevada running along Interstate 15, with a station stop in the Victorville area. The system will be fed by several other lines from various locations in California, resulting in a total of 218 miles of track overall. Travelers from Las Vegas would be able to continue from the system to Los Angeles via the Metrolink, which will effectively link Las Vegas with L.A.

The project is scheduled to be complete by the summer of 2028.
