As many of you know, we are investors in a Strip-view 1-bdr at Panorama Towers, which stands on the west side of I-15 across from CityCenter. I've several times on this blog offered photo progress reports on the now-$11.2 billion project from MGM Mirage. You can see an aggregate of those earlier images here.
The reason I haven't been able to provide more frequent updates on this score is that we miraculously rented the money pit out in April 2008. And, predictably, it was to a turd who has now decided he doesn't want to stay. Fortunately, rather than disappear on us, he found someone else to move in immediately and sign a new lease, so the damage was minimal.
But I did use this interim moment to go see what damage the turd did to our place -- surprisingly, none -- and to shoot some new images. The top photo above is the broader view. Below is a direct-view look at the back of Aria with Vdara to the left. I assume the circles in the ground will be swimming pools? The one below that was from April 2008.
I think this, below, is a parking garage. I know the brown square all the way to the right is the power plant.
And here you can see where the Harmon overpass will bissect the project and, after that, the same shot from July 2007 when we closed on the property and April 2008:
Hey, maybe my new renter will be a deadbeat, too, and then I'll get to go back and shoot some more!!! We can only hope.
