It's Not All That Great To Live On The Vegas Strip
From the LVRJ:
It’s probably a safe assumption that the typical Las Vegas high-rise buyer expects a view of at least one or two directions. In a $5.5-million penthouse, they probably expect even more, and No. 3301 in Turnberry Tower Two delivers in spades. Although not panoramic, every one of its rooms offers a view of the valley, and you can see in every direction from somewhere in the entire unit.
What differentiates the Turnberry Towers, which were erected in the early 2000s from some newer high-rise buildings is their open floor plans and indoor-outdoor living spaces, said luxury Realtor Kristen Routh-Silberman of Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty, who has the listing. “Patios and decks have always made the Turnberry high-rises the ultimate in luxury residences in the sky,” she said. http://www.reviewjournal.com/real-estate-millions/living-sky-high-near-the-las-vegas-strip-photos
So, some people say it's great to live on the Vegas Strip because of the lights and views.
Sure, during the night, the lights are nice....for the first week or so, then, so what? The lights rarely change, so you don't you don't variety and you get bored with them. You will also see traffic jams, street performers badgering pedestrians and drunks getting sick or falling down.
During the day, when the lights go away, what do your see? Besides the mountains, which are cool, especially they are covered in snow, you also see roof tops, tops of parking garages, air conditioning units, dumpsters, swimming pools and other things that are quite boring.
And this being in Las Vegas, where murders and shootings are happening almost everyday, you might see some gang violence. So, there can be some excitement.
And to pay $5,500,000 large condo in the sky?
Not worth it.
