mdiederi,

What's the area in the foreground in that pan? It looks like it's near Rhodes Ranch, but so much has been built out that way, I'm not sure where that photo was taken from.

Yeah, LMich, that was from just a little northwest of Rhodes Ranch.

Photos from this past week - sorry about the quality on some; I didn't have my tripod and some were taken from a car:







I was staying at the Venetian and had an amazing view of the Palazzo going up from the pool - I was one happy vacationing SSP geek!

Very nice views, Mayday! I'm getting 'home'sick just looking at these. You capture some very non-tourists views.

I had no that you'd be able to see the Trump looking down Rancho like that. I can't wait to see development eventually spread west of the freeway.

My favorite thing about this city is how fast construction occurs. I was last there about two and a half years ago and there didn't seem to be half as many buildings. Amazing.

Fast is not always better, and in the case of the hotels, it's most definitely not in terms of the finished quality.

I love the pick of the Marriot Grand Chateau. Party in the front, Business in the rear. A reverse mullet of a picture, if you will. And the sneaker on the power line is the cherry on top!

Has this one been mentioned before? Quail Village four towers with two having 1,120 condos and the other two with 2,700 hotel rooms, all 590 feet tall. On Spring Mountain Road just a little north of the Rio near I-15.

Ya Quail Village is an older (considered stale by this thread) project. Glad to see it resurface. Here are the only know renderings.





Looks like a nice project.

Interesting. Those renderings show a lot more than four towers. That must have been the "mixed use" project originally proposed. The current application is for a zone change from U-V (Urban Village - Mixed Use) Zone to H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment).

The planning staff also said:

Quote:
The building elevations submitted to staff also do not provide adequate detailing to complete a comprehensive review of the building aesthetics. According to the plans, the resulting project will involve four, 590 foot high towers, with other mid-rise structures close to Interstate 15. The towers include very little detailing other than the glass curtain walls that incorporate a combination of green and blue tinted glass. As a result, staff cannot support the design review portion of this application, and requests that the applicant make efforts to terrace Tower #1 to reduce the height setback ratio intrusion and add architectural detailing to the tower elevations.

JMA Architecture had drawn up those original plans, and it was more a vision, at the time. It still sounds like a long-shot project, to me.

As I looked further, trying to find data support his claim, I found that there are only 6 units available for lease...6/120 is 5%...Maybe he meant the building is 70% occupied, because based on what I just pulled up, there are only 38 units available for lease and sale. That would lead me to believe that the other 82/120 are occupied...68%.

Good detective work HighriseLV. I thought it sounded kind of extreme, that's why I posted it.

So I wonder if the application for the zoning change is just a ploy to boost the value of the land for future resale?
