How to Pick a Las Vegas High Rise
The Las Vegas high rise condo market has expanded wildly as we've grown into a more metropolitan city. What used to be considered a good place to gamble now ranks among America's great restaurant cities, entertainment cities, convention cities, and is a global art destination. Vegas is also in close proximity to hundreds of thousands of acres of protected federal park land, and is becoming known as a nature lover's paradise.
As sophisticated transplants move to Vegas from all over, for both work and play, developers have responded by creating one of the most intriguing high-rise condominium portfolios in any city in the country, offering luxury high-rise penthouses that rival Manhattan and L.A., with unbeatable panoramic views of the one of a kind Las Vegas landscape.
Vegas currently boasts 17 high-rise condominium communities. With a range of style, location and price options, from chic downtown studios to palatial, architectural masterpieces on the Strip, and with price tags ranging from $200K to $7 million or more, it takes a discerning eye to help buyers find the right high-rise for their lifestyle. And for most of our buyers, it's a matter of finding the right view, location, and combination of price and amenities that fit.
What Buyers Want - A View!
The #1 amenity a high rise offers is the view. And if you live in Vegas, one of the most exciting views you can have is of the Strip. For buyers wanting a bird's eye view of the strip, one of the hottest high rise properties right now is The Martin. With residences priced from $400K to $7 Million, the Martin's sheer glass exterior is a shining gem where east facing units look out at the posh City Center and the ultra-modern architecture of the Crystals Mall. West views include the city and mountains framed in the background, with spectacular sunsets. Penthouse units at the Martin can be up to 13,000 square feet, expanding the visual possibilities to include panoramic views of the entire Las Vegas valley. There are many other highrises with great views, depending upon the unit. You'll have to decide what view suits you.
Like to Walk to your Entertainment? Live On the Strip
The Las Vegas Strip is one of the most walkable urban areas in the country. With so many restaurants, entertainment venues and nightlife within a few square miles, strip highrises will always be in demand. The Veer Towers is a great option if you want to roll out of bed and walk to the strip. These ultra-modern twin, angled highrises at CityCenter offer everything from studio units around $250K to penthouse units for $1.7 Million. The Veer features a rooftop pool, exercise room and sauna, 24-hour security, a billiards room, business center and concierge service, all just steps away from Las Vegas Blvd. There are very few highrises RIGHT ON the strip - Veer is one, Mandarin Oriental is another. Other highrises are a block off, but still close.
But Perhaps A Little Quieter Locale Fits Better
If you like to be close to the action but not right on top of it, Turnberry Place is one block east of the strip, near the Las Vegas Country Club. Turnberry offers a community pool, gym and valet, and units with strip, city, or valley views. Or if you're looking for that truly metropolitan lifestyle, why not consider the Ogden, located in the heart of Las Vegas' resurgent downtown. You won't have heavy hustle and bustle of the strip, but you're still within walking distance to grocery shopping, restaurants, galleries, vintage casinos and nightlife, in the center of what has become Las Vegas' hippest neighborhood.
If you're after a quieter location, One Queensridge Place is located near the desert's edge in Summerlin, and most units offer stunning views of neighboring Red Rock Canyon Natural Preserve. Units at Queensridge come standard with Viking appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinets and elegant patios where residents can relax and watch the sun set over the mountains. Amenities include an outdoor pool and spa, indoor lap pool, billiards lounge, Pilates room, fully equipped gym, valet, 24-hour security, and concierge.
Great Amenities may mean High Fees
One consideration in choosing a highrise will be the HOA fees. These fees are used for maintenance of the building and the common areas, but also go towards salaries of the workers that give residents luxury service.
In most Las Vegas high-rises, fees fluctuate depending on square footage, with smaller units getting charged less, and the amount of the HOA fees usually gives you an idea of what to expect in terms of amenities. For example, The Martin has some great community facilities, like pool, spa, fitness room and meeting room - all at approximately 52 cents/SF per month. At the ultra-posh Mandarin Oriental, residents enjoy access world class spa facilities, an owners lounge, concierge services, a community dog park, valet parking, doorman, access to the elevated pool, an exercise studio and yoga center, 24-hour security and more. Monthly fees at the Mandarin are on average $1/SF per month.
