In Las Vegas, size does matter. That's what the developers of the long awaited Ivana Las Vegas are saying about the biggest skyscraper the city has yet to see.
At 80 levels, 923 feet tall and 945 luxury residential units, Ivana Las Vegas super tower is set to dominate the Las Vegas skyline. It will stand shoulder to shoulder with the Stratosphere at the northern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, which is developing as the hottest end of the ribbon of gold that is the Las Vegas Strip.
With Ivana Las Vegas, Ivana Trump returns to her property roots and cements her ever-expanding Australian connections. For this project, she has teamed up with Australian developer Victor Altomare.
In addition to the super tower on the strip, Ivana also has a 45-unit luxury condo project in Australia's World Heritage Great Barrier Reef.
"Ivana Las Vegas will not house a casino. However, the project will create approximately 1,000 new full time jobs in Las Vegas. There will be restaurants, bars, a spa, shops, gyms, 24-hour concierge service and a host of other amenities befitting a five star facility," says Victor Altomare, CEO Sahara Condominiums, LLC and partner Ivana Las Vegas.
"The project will be profitable for our company and all vested partners. However, our priority is achieving our goals of creating community prosperity in Las Vegas," he concluded. "Ivana Las Vegas is not just a high rise or skyscraper, it is luxury living at its finest and the tallest habitable residential building west of the Mississippi River," says the buildings namesake, Ivana Trump.
To put Ivana's height in perspective, the outside viewing deck of the Stratosphere is at 900 feet. The Ivana Las Vegas will stand at 923 feet. Las Vegas Mayor, Oscar Goodman has called the building, "Iconic." The project is scheduled to complete in 2008.
On July 12, the Ivana Las Vegas was presented to more than 1,500 real estate agents at the Bellagio Grand Ballroom in Las Vegas.
