Proposal to build 2 hotels near Town Square

Town Square could soon become more than just a shopping mall. The owners of the property want to build two boutique hotels.

The outdoor mall is located near Sunset Road and Las Vegas Boulevard.

The project is still in the early stages of planning. While it appears that Town Square has the space to build two small hotels, one major hurdle must be cleared before moving forward with the proposal.

The owners of Town Square, TH Real Estate and Fairbourne Partners, want to build two boutique hotels on the northwest end of the property.

"I think it's a creative concept," said Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak.

The proposal was first presented to Sisolak about two months ago. The idea is to keep the hotels small. Combined, both hotels would have about 200 rooms.

"They seem pretty committed," Sisolak said. "I don't know that they're 100-percent because like I say it's all contingent on the FAA saying it's appropriate use for that area."... Read More

Sources: Virgin Hotels could possibly buy Hard Rock in Las Vegas

8 News Now sources say the owner of Virgin Hotels is looking to buy the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Billionaire Richard Branson of Virgin Airlines, Virgin Records, and so many other ventures owns Virgin Hotels.

The Hard Rock is currently owned by Brookfield Asset Management which is in discussions with an investment group regarding a potential sale of the Hard Rock.

The transaction is only in negotiation at this point, meaning the sale hasn't closed, and any potential transition from a Hard Rock to a Virgin most likely would not occur until 2019 at the earliest.
