Best Las Vegas Movers – 702-651-1520

When we think of Las Vegas we tend to think of the gaming industry. Most people are aware of colorful characters like Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky who helped bring casinos to Las Vegas. However fewer are aware of our rich history of business and do not know much about business people who made their fortunes away from “The Strip”.

Waclark - wikipediaOriginally part of Mexico, the area around Las Vegas was sparsely populated until significant well digging took place. The availability of water attracted railroad tycoon and U.S. Senator William Andrews Clark.  Clark used what is today Las Vegas as refueling stop for the cross country railroad network he was building. When the U.S. government decided to build Hoover Dam the population of Las Vegas boomed, growing 5,000 to 250,000 people overnight. The inrush of single men with extra money on their hands resulted in the growth of the casino industry.

By the fifties Vegas was quite literally booming. Of course the expanding gaming industry brought growth, but the establishment of major military bases, including the forerunner to the mysterious Area 51 spurred growth. In fact one could pay to witness a nuclear test !!!

This began string of acquisitions that would see Hughes buy many of the hotels and casinos owned by organized crime and led to the more business oriented gaming of today.

Part of his philosophy was that he wanted a liveable fun working environment. When he was planning to move his headquarter from outside of the   city  to downtown, he was disappointed that the area was not well developed. Downtown Las Vegas does not get the attention that “The Strip” does. He decided to invest in his city and make downtown Las Vegas the next Austin or Bay Area.  He literally purchased city hall as his new headquarters and is now working to re-engineer the area. He calls it “Playing REAL Sim City“.

With visionaries like Clark, Hughes and Hsieh the future looks as bright for downtown as the lights of “Glitter Gulch”. If you want to bet a city that’s on the move come to Las Vegas. If you do come our way, call your friends in the moving business, All My Sons Moving & Storage.

Proposed Stadium Rendering via Cornish Cos.

The miasmic mingling of sweat and nacho cheese, the indecipherable congealing of boos and cheers, and those jerks that wear the other team’s jersey. Going to see your team play in a stadium may have a few drawbacks, but it’s also great to experience. We’ve seen the city council propose building a stadium of one sort or another every few years, but this Soccer Stadium could be the time it happens.

The main reason we don’t have a stadium is that it wouldn’t make enough money. With teams playing only seventeen home games per season, revenue would need to come from other events like concerts, trade shows, and corporate events. Being that this is Las Vegas, venues aren’t in short supply.

Mayor Goodman, a vocal supporter of the stadium, has decided that the only way to support the stadium is to get outside funding. While a proposal earlier this month would’ve had Las Vegas paying for over half of the cost of the stadium, a deal on the table right now leaves our city with only twenty three percent of the financial burden.

While it may be wishful thinking, perhaps we’re about to get a stadium of our own.

The Showcase Mall located on the Strip, was sold to a new ownership group in late may. The sale is rarity for Strip properties, as most owners tend to hold on to their properties forever, due to their great value and constant foot traffic.

An ownership group from New York bought 190,000 square feet of the property for 145 million dollars. The ownership group includes the Nakash family, who owns the Jordache jeans line. Though the family, and their partner Eli Gindi do not own the entirety of the property, they are majority owners of the land now. There are two other owners who have significantly less property control than the new group.

The family was not only attracted by the location and price of the property, but it was also attracted to the tenants of the property, which include Coca-Cola and M&M’s. One of the malls most iconic features is a giant Coke bottle that sits out front. The new owners plan to renovate the bottle, keeping its size, but making its presence more exciting. They are hoping that it will look something like the giant LED Coke bottle in Times Square.

People’s preferences are moving towards malls and retail centers on the strip, rather than casinos, and as this trend continues the Showcase will thrive.
