Pawn Stars Try To Build Up Area

In this image provided by PR Plus in Las Vegas, a rendering for Pawn Star Plaza shopping center, an addition to the downtown Las Vegas Gold & Silver Pawn Shop featured on the reality show "Pawn Stars," is depicted.
From the Las Vegas Sun:
The long parade of tourists who regularly stop by the downtown Las Vegas shop featured on the History Channel reality show "Pawn Stars" could soon have something better to do while waiting in line.
"We have always tried to improve our customer experience while waiting in line," Spyer said, pointing to misters, benches and a hot dog stand at the premises. "Now we intend to take it to the next level. We are currently working on a line system that will enable the fans to patronize Pawn Star Plaza without losing their position in line."
The plaza, which Harrison estimates would cost $2 million to build, would consist of several colorful, modular units fit together like a Rubik's Cube. Harrison said he was inspired by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh's nearby Container Park, which is built out of shipping containers commonly found on trains and barges.
"It was more of the look, flexibility, ease of construction and simplicity of design that created Rick's vision for the space," Spyer said.
The pawn shop, which is open 24 hours a day, is located in a gritty area near bail-bond offices and a now-closed tattoo parlor. Harrison said he wants to help rejuvenate the area without using city redevelopment funds.  http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/jul/28/pawn-stars-tv-star-plans-stores-near-famous-shop/
I don't know, but the area is fairly small and so the building will have to be small.  And the colors being shown?  All I can say I "Damn, that's butt ugly".


  1. Why be original?

    Tony Hseih builds a container monstrosity, these idiots parrot.

    One useless Ferris wheel isn't enough. Let's make two.

    Same with zip lines.

    Or luxury shopping centers attached to resorts.

    Or a homogenized community called Summerlin. Let's make another one called Green Valley.

    Let's make super luxury hotels INSIDE hotels.

    Or four dozen luxury lounges where a $20 bottle of Finlandia costs $400.

    What's better than one Cirque de Soliel show? Many Cirque de Soliel shows!

    At least Tropicana shut down their mob museum.
