    Good luck with that location and the all-Asian theme. I don't know if they are drawing to a large enough base to be sustainable, or at least profitable

    Well, I'd say China is a pretty large base actually .... and it is just a boutique hotel (201 rooms) nowhere near the size of strip resorts.

    But yeah, timing does not seem the best for courting that market, and location remains a potential issue.

    From that article: "The hotel-casino wants to position itself as an attractive spot for domestic Asian customers, instead of focusing largely on the international market."

    yep, because 90% of the "international" players are from LA.

    This will be interesting to see/follow. I hope they do well. I like increased competition for gamblers. It can't hurt.

    Spring Mountain Road probably would have been a better choice for location. They could have tapped into the Gold Coast and Chinatown locals market for their Mon-Thu numbers.

    a couple of the other recent boutique hotels didn't work out either that were in non-prime locations

    There was a guy from Japan and some other American partners I believe involved in another place around downtown, that has been going on for some time. The guy from Japan has big dollars but Vegas officials are calling for financial investigation and conclusive evidence as to where he complied his funds from. He has been talking about hundreds of millions if not more of investment and even putting in a monorail or something. His people tell the story that the city of Vegas doesn't want to change downtown because of the strip and the officials from Vegas say something like, we need time to conduct our investigations.

    It is not the same people, but something along the likes.

    So many proposals, but that sounds like the "Tokyo Casino," just west of I-15, between Owens and Washington. The location is about halfway between the Moulin Rouge site and Jerry's Nugget, or about a mile north of the Plaza downtown casino.

    The developers intend to start with a small, slots-only casino, then expand to include hotels, restaurants, and a gondola spanning I-15.

    Personally, I think the gondola is a genius idea, because I've noticed the homeless people east of the highway appear slightly more affluent than the ones on the west side.
