SLS Las Vegas Construction

Las Vegas, Nevada.  SLS Hotel & Casino.  This used to be Sahara, a rather famous old place.  At one time not too long ago, I believe that a billion dollars went into renovating Sahara.  Sahara has since been closed and you can see right into the gutted main tower.

A new street sign has already been installed identifying SLS Way.  It used to say Sahara.

This location is at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Sahara.  To the right of SLS/ex Sahara used to be Wet n Wild Water Park; not there any longer, although they have opened a location far from the Strip.

Directly opposite SLS/ex Sahara used to be El Rancho Las Vegas, (not to be confused with a different El Rancho that opened some years later on the other side of Las Vegas Blvd) which was destroyed by a fire in 1960.  That lot remains deserted to this day.
