Other High Rise News - The Mandarin Oriental brand is leaving Las Vegas. MGM Resorts announced that Waldorf Astoria is buying the Mandarin Oriental. It will accept Hilton Honors points and the domain WaldorfAstoriaLasVegas.com has been registered. Property values should continue to be strong whether it's called Mandarin Oriental or Waldorf. It offers a terrific location with luxury finishes. It is rumored that Waldorf will be spending $50 Million to renovate the property. Another reason we don't expect any negative impact on property values.
Owners at Turnberry Place had good news as well. The moth-balled Fontainebleau structure has been sold. The NY Hotelier who bought it will be working with Marriot to finish the structure and open The Drew. No date has been announced for the completion but it will definitely be more appealing when lights are on.
Renovations are moving along at The Stirling Club in the midst of Turnberry Place. Latest newsletter says the pool has been resurfaced. Restoration of the tennis courts is almost complete. Stirling Club will be partnering with Starbucks to open a coffee shop. New owners have already invested more than $1 million for repairs and renovations. It should be back to its old grandeur in no time.

Las Vegas High Rise News - July 2017
Inventory in Las Vegas top high rise buildings is at 373 condos for sale today. That's up from last month when we reported 346 condos for sale. Part of the jump is due to a change in the buildings we track for this report. Until this month, we haven't included ONE Las Vegas and JUHL. These buildings were turned into rentals during the recession. In fact, the few owners who had closed on units in these buildings had difficulty selling the condos once so many of them were turned into rentals. The investors in control of them are now selling the condos as tenants move out. Therefore, we've added them to our reporting.
We sold 79 luxury high rise condos in July. That's a drop from the 84 we sold in June, especially since the June figure didn't include the two newly added buildings. ONE Las Vegas sold 11 units during the month. JUHL sold 2. Without their transactions, we would have only sold 66. That's about even with the 67 we sold in the same month last year.
Top Sellers in July - Panorama Towers and ONE Las Vegas tied for highest sales volume with 11 units changing hands in both communities. Signature at MGM was second with 8 units sold. Palms Place and The Ogden tied for third with 7 units sold in each complex.
Las Vegas High Rise Price Trends
Only 3 luxury condos sold for $1 Million or more in July. Most expensive deal was Turnberry Place Tower 2, Unit 3301. This penthouse was listed for $5.5M and closed for $4.5M after 341 days on the market. The Mandarin Oriental took second place for total sales price with unit 3807. Listed for $1.475M, it sold for $1.275M. While the total price paid was lower, the Mandarin condo fetched $805/sf. The Turnberry Place penthouse was close at $779/sf. Third place was ONE Queensridge Place, Bldg 1 Unit 601. Listed at $2.35M, it closed for $2.235M or $466/sf.
Las Vegas High Rise News - June 2017
Inventory in Las Vegas' Top High Rise Towers is down to 346 today. That's a big improvement in the high rise market. That's a drop from 370 last month and from 34% from the 529 luxury condos listed in July 2016.
Sales volume is up too. We sold 84 luxury high rise condos in June. Up from 64 in May and 67 in June 2016. The increased sales volume over the past few months has brought our monthly average up to 76 units for the past year. If sales continue at that rate, today's 346 condos would be absorbed in less than five months.
Top Sellers in June - Turnberry Towers was the top seller last month, with 9 luxury condos sold. Second place was a four way tie between Palm's Place, MGM Signature, The Ogden and Veer Towers with 8 transactions in each of those buildings. The Martin took third place with six condos sold.
Las Vegas High Rise Price Trends
The surplus inventory that has plagued our high rise market for years is finally being absorbed and prices are staying strong. While the market is beginning to favor sellers, units that are priced at market value are selling quicker and for better prices. An example is unit 808 at SOHO Lofts. It was my listing and the seller was realistic. Only three condos have sold in SOHO over the past year, including this one. We used nearby Newport Lofts and JUHL to arrive at our price of $269K. Within two days, we had two offers. It sold for $270K cash and the buyer contributed to the seller's closing costs. The building has eight units currently listed for sale. They've sat on the market between 35 and 203 days.
