    I'm interested in seeing what happens to the northern end of the strip in the upcoming few years. SLS is open. Riviera gets a nice revamp. Hopefully the site of the Frontier actually gets done and someone actually buys and completes the Fountainbleu building.

    oh my, spending 100 million on the Riviera in it's current condition sounds like slapping some lipstick on a pig. This place needs a complete overhaul in combination with low rates to be able to compete with the other resorts (at least that's what I believe). Where to start and where to end? A renovation of the complete property is in place and renovating the hotel and casino while leaving out the dated pool area wouldn't make much sense to me.

    It is important to understand this article is NOT saying that anyone has committed funding and plans to actually spend $100 million renovating the Riviera. What it says is "POTENTIAL renovations to the property COULD cost upwards of $100 million" which is a great way to get media and public attention. Talk is cheap!
