High-rise living remains an extremely attractive lifestyle — and investment opportunity — for a significant segment of the population. It is one of the best ways to get a great view of Las Vegas everyday. For others, it gives them a highly secure, minimal-maintenance residence in Nevada, a state with a very attractive tax structure. In many cases if you live here half the year, plus a day, you’re a resident. There are other I’s to dot and T’s to cross, but you get the picture. Many of the high-rise condos in town have been built within the last 15 years, making contemporary design the rule of the day. Most of them are within close proximity to the Las Vegas Strip. The physical locations of the high-rises are generally split into the Strip; downtown; “midtown” between the Strip and downtown (where Juhl, Newport Lofts and Soho Lofts are located); and off-Strip. The high-rises directly on the Strip, like the Mandarin Oriental, give owners a bird’s eye view of the action as well as the ability to get there by simply walking out their front door. To the contrary One Queensridge Place is off-Strip and offers residents a lifestyle experience complete with an impressive array of amenities that will make you feel as if you were living in a custom home in the sky. Las Vegas currently boasts many 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. For most buyers, it’s a matter of finding the right view, location and combination of price and amenities that fit.
