Icon canceled

Another Las Vegas high rise project has announced that it will not be going forward. Icon Las Vegas announced Friday that the project has been scrapped. Specific details aren't available at this time. Icon is the 3rd major high rise project to be canceled. It joins the Aqua Blue and Krystal Sands. Some analysts had predicted as many as 1/4 of all announced projects would never come to fruition. So far, they are woefully short of their predictions.

Icon was to be located on Convention Center drive, just a few blocks from the strip. There is no word yet as to the disposition of the property. Parties that have made deposits on Icon units can still reach the listing broker for Icon at 1-866-988-4266.

Despite this cancellation, the high rise boom is still going strong. Pinnacle One just starting selling as well as Vegas 888. Units for George Clooney's project, Las Ramblas are also still available.

In other news, the Sunset Casino had its grand reopening of its buffet. The marquee in front advertised it with more fresher selections. If only it were true. In addition to paying $3.00 more per person for lunch, the food selection was actually less. The entire Texas section is now gone. The international station is mainly Mexican food and the salad and desert stations are half their original size. I sure miss the old buffet... At least the Orleans still has a nice buffet.
