Once you venture off the strip there are plenty of undesirables ready to rob you.

Can of course happen...but rare to the point of non existent. Well inside the highly patrolled strip zone.

Had an RN for a month who lived there. She considered the place almost too tame.

Have to remember LV has this set of knockers who will willingly testify that you will be disemboweled in the lobby at Bellagio. Could happen of course. But more chance of getting hit by a meteorite.

Of course it could, anything can...I assumed that path over the Harmon Bridge from Martin to Vdara was safe.

I own the copyright on the image - a screen shot of an excel spreadsheet of my own creation. Yes, the excel spreadsheet is of data from public records, but that is irrelevant to my copyright.

The C-D rules prohibit posting images where someone else owns the copyright. That is why I created a spreadsheet from data, took a screenshot, and then posted the image here.

If you find an image on the web, most likely someone else owns the copyright to that image. You can post the reference here (the URL of someone else's copyrighted image) but the C-D terms of use (terms of service?) prohibits using the image tags so someone else's image shows up embedded in your post. You can get a C-D infraction for doing so.

So, I'm just letting mods know that because I own the copyright of the image of the excel spreadsheet, it is not in violation of the C-D rules.

If there are any mods reading - did I get this right? Did I misunderstand anything? Can you clarify?

Urban areas with solid demographics will skyrocket and iffy areas like the arts district/huntridge will eventually gentrify(it's already happening). I wouldn't be surprised if areas around Fremont gentrify as well as near arterials that lead to the strip like Flamingo and Sahara, and Trop.
If light rail gets built along MD parkway (2025), it may be the first to attract developers. Much of the area between the strip and MD Parkway is designated as an opportunity zone, where investors get preferential tax treatment. I envision some development like midtown west in Atlanta (townhomes, Atlantic Station) since building towers is now too pricey (steel) to make a profit here.

In order to get anything going along Maryland Pkwy they're going to have to bulldoze what's there first and start new. The demographic in that area can't afford to live in anything being built new. Commercially, the area is full of a lot of low-rent operations that aren't going to be attractive to more upscale homeowners.When you have a Goodwill as the anchor in your local mall... Well....


I still think building light rail on Maryland is a terrible idea. It's going to be like one of those "bridge to nowhere" projects... Light rail to nowhere... Lol. In order for a light rail to work there are going to have to be at least a few high traffic stops to make it worthwhile, or nobody will ride it.

If anything... Have light rail run from parking lots to stadium to arena to rumored baseball stadium and any parking structures in between. Have the county put in county owned pay garages for these events and let the casinos reopen their lots for free parking.

Have you ridden any of the different light rail systems in cities around the country? Like Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Denver, Portland, Dallas, Minneapolis? And what will you see? Development at the rail stops! It matters not where it's built, development will follow, bank on it!

One potential massive housing development could spring up at the corner of DI/Maryland. Tear out that Applebee's, and with Sears failing, do they need all that parking space? There's enough space there to build 500-1000 units of housing, and it would create a city within a city, as the shopping venues are all a short walk away. Let's put some imagination into this!

I think the Maryland route is the best choice of the first light rail line. As a result of it, hopping on a train at the Airport and being whizzed to Fremont street will greatly benefit Fremont Street, and some possible expansion.

After the first rail line is complete, then shoot it out on Charleston to downtown Summerlin. What a profit maker that might be!

Just remember, no Federal help unless the line serves mostly residents.
