Progress can be cruel sometimes. A drive by the former O’Sheas casino is proof.
The good news, and there’s lots of good news, is that dramatic progress has been made on the Las Vegas Strip to make way for The Linq, the $550 million development project that will include an entertainment and dining corridor, as well as The High Roller observation wheel. Read more about The Linq.
We’ve got some recent photos of the area around O’Sheas, including Imperial Palace, and while it ain’t pretty, it’s exciting to see how Vegas is transforming itself, yet again.
The O’Sheas parking lot was imploded on May 1, and construction crews have made quick work of removing the rubble.
Relax. Sin City knows what it’s doing.
The Imperial Palace is slowly losing its Asian influence, too. The hotel won’t even be called the Imperial Palace much longer. The hotel will soon be renamed The Pulse, after this blog, unless we’re completely making that up.
Never a dull moment in Vegas.
The Rockhouse bar and nightclub, outside Imperial Palace, has had its innards removed. Word has it the Rockhouse will be opening down the road in the Venetian. (We try not to ask too many questions.)
Out front, the former home of the Rockhouse is barely recognizable.
There’s a new building being erected behind Flamingo Las Vegas.
Take heart, Vegas fans. Out of the ashes shall emerge The Linq. And it shall be fancy.
You’ll live forever in our memories, O’Sheas.
More updates to come! Happier updates. With fewer buildings having their faces eaten off.
