Wondering where you’re going to park for NFL Raider games when the team takes up residence at the new Las Vegas Stadium. Well, if you’re fortunate enough to live in a luxury condominium on South Las Vegas Blvd., you can literally tail-gate at home, Uber-it four miles to the stadium, and still make it in plenty of time for pre-game activities and kick-off! Now that’s the ultimate definition of location, location, location.
Ask any realtor where the hot locations are in Las Vegas and they will tell you that the emergence of luxury high-rise living in both Downtown and on the South Strip makes a Las Vegas Blvd. address hard to beat.
Located on South Las Vegas Blvd., the 20-story, two-tower luxury condominium complex – One Las Vegas – is an easy eight-minute drive from McCarran International Airport. It’s South Strip location is amazingly quiet while still providing convenient access to the best the city has to offer. With Town Square just down the road, dining options are plentiful from casual neighborhood joints for a quick bite or family outing to fine dining for date night and special occasions. And, whether you’re running out for groceries or browsing the mall, shopping is a breeze, again, thanks to proximity to Town Square with more than 115 stores and restaurants.
If you’re of a mind to spend the day taking in some art and culture, just up the Boulevard at Aria is the first major permanent collection of art in Las Vegas that is integrated into public spaces featuring work by a roster of internationally acclaimed painters, sculptors and installation artists. For the ultimate sports fan, a South Strip address is a dream come true – four miles from the Raiders and an 8-minute drive to T-Mobile Arena, home of the National Hockey League’s Vegas Golden Knights.
To the delight of city-dwellers, North Las Vegas Blvd. in Downtown Las Vegas is also a premier address for luxury high-rise living. Located on the Boulevard is The Ogden, a 21-story luxury condominium tower. Around the corner is Juhl, a loft-style community that spans an entire city block.
Here, the city’s origins meet neighborhood-camaraderie as locals and visitors relax over a cup of java at locally-owned coffee houses; dine and drink at hipster restaurants and bars; shop in sustainable shipping containers at Downtown Container Park; support local artists at nearby 18b The Las Vegas Arts District; party at festivals like Life is Beautiful; and wander through The Mob Museum and the Neon Museum – museums that could only be found in Las Vegas.
Within walking distance of The Ogden and Juhl are more than 150 restaurants, bars and nightlife venues, including the Fremont East Entertainment District – a trendy block bustling with sidewalk cafes, cocktail lounges, rooftop party decks and vibrant nightlife. In Downtown Las Vegas, the bar scene covers a lot of ground. Trendy bars and dives are sometimes one and the same and an impressive number of bars are serving innovative craft cocktails. Downtown Vegas is also home to an explosion of new restaurants, that alongside a few established favorites, are serving up some of the best food in the city.
Once and for all, Downtown Las Vegas has squashed the image of a city devoid of culture. At the center of performing arts is The Smith Center – home to touring Broadway productions, concerts, community theater and the city’s two beloved resident companies – Nevada Ballet Theatre and the Las Vegas Philharmonic. The Smith Center boasts a robust schedule for a variety of cultural tastes.
And of course, when you’ve got the urge for world-class entertainment, the Las Vegas Strip is only minutes from both North Las Vegas Blvd. and South Las Vegas Blvd.
But even in a city that’s open 24/7 and never lacks for something to do, it’s nice to get out of town! A quick 30-minute drive will take you to a day sailing on Lake Mead, a hike at Red Rock Canyon or a day of skiing during the winter at Mt. Charleston.
And, with easy access to major highways from both North and South Las Vegas Blvd, the beaches of California are only a few hours away for a weekend get-a-way. Or, set out for a leisurely three-hour drive to experience some of the country’s most majestic national parks including Utah’s Zion Park with its red cliffs, flowing rivers, emerald pools and Bryce Canyons’ spire-shaped rock formations.
The only thing that tops living in Las Vegas is experiencing the high-rise lifestyle with a Las Vegas Blvd. address.
