That's quite a loss. I'd like to know how the fire started. Squaters? Developer?

I took in fall 2005-after the fire-pretty much it's just the signage left, held up with timber, is this bound for the sign boneyard museum?

this just in...

it's great someone wants to develop the property BUUUUT, i am tired of people not noticing that the original outlying motel buildings (called dilapidated in the article) are PART of the original footprint and look pretty darn intact and restorable to me.

they still have the MR dingbats on them - and i might mention - one of the very very few dingbats i have found in las vegas. (dingbats are practically non-existent here)

rebirth is coming

The Las Vegas Business Press printed an article about the Moulin Rouge indicating that redevelopment has become a bit more realistic due to a deal with a large developer. Read the article here:

http://www.lvbusinesspress.com/articles ... 187601.txt

My understanding is that some of the hotel wings are still standing in the rear portion of the property.

This might be a great opportunity to attempt to save those existing structures.

Further update: The website for the architect is here:

http://www.edvanceassociates.com/


The text in regards to the Moulin Rouge indicates a renovation of the existing 60-room hotel. Still might be good to start a dialogue to understand what they are planning and to ensure that the midmod details a preserved.
