The old courthouse is for sale in DT Las Vegas, just south of Fremont, sitting on 2.5 acres, a full city block, with a minimum bid of $10 million. The building is structurally sound, just needs some asbestos removal, new wiring, plumbing, etc. Sealed Bids will be opened 10/1, highest bidder over $10 million gets the property.

Alright! Dream time! You have the money to renovate the building, or tear it down and rebuild, and what would your dream project be for this property?

Myself, a great lover and appreciator of 1950-1970 construction methods, I'd want to salvage the building and sell off half the land to another developer to help pay for my half of it.

I'd either turn it into a boutique hotel, providing you could turn the roof over to a rooftop deck, or turn it into a condo building.

What would be your dream for this project?

There is a mechanical fire breathing praying mantis on Fremont next to the shut down Western casino. I wonder what's that all about. Good ole Tony.

Worse: have Carl Icahn (owner of the Fountainbleu who's still waiting for the market to recover to continue construction on it) buy it, and wait for the market to recover to re-sell it!
