LAS VEGAS | Pulse Arena Development News

6/20/07 The Las Vegas City Council approved plans for Pulse, a massive $9.5 billion mixed-used development anchored by a 22,000-seat arena, that integrates approximately 85 acres of downtown land into the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. The project (code named Pulse) is to be developed by REI, a Bloomfield Hills, Michigan-based real estate development firm.

REI acquired the property from TR Las Vegas LLC which is credited with assembling the over 120 parcels of land. located just south of downtown Las Vegas. The land assemblage was previously called "Project Neon Lights" Tom Prato, President of TR Las Vegas and his partner, Robert Reel, have worked hard for several years on this, in an effort to enhance the City.

The project will feature:

- 22,000-seat arena
- 300,000 square feet of gaming floor space
- 6,000 hotel rooms
- over 1.5 million square feet of commercial and retail floor space
- 3.5 million square feet of office and permanent exhibition space
- 1,500 condominium units
- 1,600 timeshare condominium units.

"This is the most exciting and dynamic development corridor in the United States. Our project continues the Strip experience, anchored at the north end by an easily accessible and iconic sports arena. This is great for the City, great for the Strip, and great for the residents of the Valley,” said Jon Weaver, President of REI.

Mayor Oscar Goodman said “We are ecstatic about this project and how it proposes to change the face of Las Vegas. What more could we ask for – the City could get an arena that we are in desperate need of, in addition to millions of dollars of ancillary development in our burgeoning midtown area, and all at no risk to the City .”

Cool! More hotel rooms means more competition among the Vegas hotels. This will help keep Vegas hotel room prices cheap.

Everyone should buy a Las Vegas high rise condo. Vertical Living is the future. Manhattanization baby!!! Leverage yourself to make above average returns!!!! China's bubble economy will implode within a year and a half. The debt ridden American dollar will likely freefall. Forget gold, protect yourself with a luxurious modern condo with breathtaking views on the world famous Las Vegas Strip. can we Confirm?????$$???$$???$$???

sorry couldn't resist. who comes up with such a phrase haha


anyway kickass project hopefully if they spent that much effort in getting the land together they will build the thing.

Good old downtown gets the most expensive project by far proposed in Vegas, that's saying something!
