Montreux Cancelled

The old news

This was Phil Ruffin's proposed replacement for the soon to be demolished New Frontier. The project was expected to open in early 2009. Montreux will be a 2,750-room "Swiss- themed" hotel with a 104,000-square-foot casino and massive shopping mall that will link directly to the Fashion Show Mall. It will host an array of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, and a 465-foot-tall observation wheel (similar to the London Eye), that scoops riders from the floor above the casino. Montreux's strip frontage is 1/4 mile long and is directly across Las Vegas Blvd. from the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas project.

Ruffin has 38.5-acres left after selling 3.5-acres to Trump for the twin Trump Towers condo-hotel project located at the back of the property.

The upscale resort will compete with the likes of the Mirage, Mandalay Bay and Paris, and has a solid footprint on the Las Vegas strip. It will use jazz as a draw. Ruffin says, "We don't really have a Strip casino that advertises good jazz music." A second Montreux Jazz Festival would be a yearly event at the resort. 

This is also the sixth planned location for a giant observation wheel in Las Vegas. Five of them are on the Dreams page as cancelled projects.
