The Trump International Hotel and Tower is scheduled to open by early 2008.

Does anyone know people who bought units in the tower? The tower, as shown, will be a mix of condominiums and hotel rooms.

If the school zoning boundaries do not change when the tower opens, it will be zoned to the following Clark County School District schools:
* Paradise ES
* Orr MS
* Clark HS

(This is based on the school locator tool and the address given - 3128 Las Vegas Boulevard South)

I'm thinking you won't find many families with kids living in that tower, and those who do will likely send their kids to private school since the schools in that area are pretty poor. The residential area behind that area of the strip near Sierra Vista and Maryland Parkway is often said to be one of the worst areas in the valley.

Default definitely not

You won't find familites living in a trump tower, it's a hotel condominium, and there are no permanent residences. These are primarily real estate investments, however you feel about them they are successful. Because of the demand for the Trump brand, Trump has decided to do a second Trump Tower in Las Vegas.

In general there is almost no permanent occupancy in the high rises in the strip area. Turnberry is purportedly 80% dark every night.

There are some permanent residence in Soho but almost none with school age children.

Boca Raton was estimating something over 40% full time residence but they have not yet moved anyone in. I would expect one Queensridge to have a high full time occupancy...but that is in the good suburbs.

There are, by the way, funny glitches in the zoning of the schools. Some areas west of 15 don't go to the obvious school.

Clark high school is also somewhat unusual. While strictly a middle of the pack high school it generally has national merit scholars in keeping with the top suburban high schools. Some sort of a split program I suspect.

I appreciate some of these comments. Especially the one about Trump - seems to be fairly impressed with himself. In general I think it's a shame that end-users won't be occuping these high rises. It's almost embarrassing. Just another quirk of Las Vegas. Many out-of-town buyers don't realize the neighborhoods these properties are being developed in. Queensridge is the only one done right - in the burbs with heavy local participation.

I think people forget that Las Vegas is resort destination. We have nearly 4,000 conventions and trade shows per year. I don't know the stats, but I'd guess that at least half of the 40 million guests that visit here annually are on their company's dime. And you might be surprised at what those companies are willing to pay for business entertaining. Those high rises are investments for corporations to have a place to entertain their clients. I'm sure they write it off on their taxes. Only the extremely wealthy can afford them, but fortunately, Las Vegas attracts the extremely wealthy from all over the world. I'm sure a few wealthy locals will buy them and actually live in them, but not many. However, I do have it from a very reliable source that the best investment for residential high rises will be those in the downtown area. According to him (I have my doubts but it's his business to know) the furniture mart will eventually grow larger than the casino business, and everything that is happening in that area will provide a lot of jobs. Those people will occupy the downtown highrises as there are fewer houses and apartments in the area.

Maybe one day...but not this day. In general the downtown high rises have difficulty selling. I expect we will see a substantial price drop particularly when a couple of the new ones come on line.

Good place to rent right now. Not a good buy.

If you were rich and had a family why would you live in one of those highrise condos. Would not you rather live in green valley or summerlin?
