Las Vegas is still growing- a new hotel, Fountainbleau, will open in 2009. I coped this article in today's paper.

The reopening this fall of the historic Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach may set the stage for the late 2009 unveiling of the $2.9 billion Fontainebleau Las Vegas.

Fontainebleau officials are focused on opening the South Florida resort, which has undergone a $1 billion remodeling and expansion. Now, executives are starting to unveil some of their plans for the north Strip hotel-casino, which is expected to top out at 63 floors by October. The property will have 3,800 rooms, including more than 1,000 condominiums.

Howard Karawan, the chief operating officer for Fontainebleau Resorts, said he expects the Fontainebleau Las Vegas to be one of the most technologically advanced resorts on the Strip. An announcement is planned in a few weeks about a deal with a well-known technology provider that could enhance in-room offerings.

Karawan said the Fontainebleau's 150,000-square-foot casino will be fully outfitted for server-based slot machine technology. Even the pool deck will welcome technology. Fontainebleau has commissioned the design of new pool lounges that have pockets to keep wireless telephones and iPods dry but accessible.

"Our whole environment, from lobby on, is being designed to create something spectacular that will become an experience that makes the Fontainebleau a must-see resort," Karawan said.

Karawan said the Las Vegas project will get a boost from the reopening of the Fontainebleau Miami, home to legendary entertainers during the 1960s and a setting for the James Bond film "Goldfinger." The resort will be center stage later this year as host of the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which will be televised on CBS.

Las Vegas is a great place to live. The weather is fantastic compared to other parts of the country. Prices of homes have come down. There are some great deals on high rise condos and single family homes. Now is the time to buy!! Don't be one of the people who say, "I should have bought property back in 2008"

I will always be honest with you.

Michael: Do you think Fountainbleau will out do the other hi rises on that end of the strip as far as prices?
