Las Vegas Construction - Barbary Coast, Bills, Gansevoort

Las Vegas, NV.  This structure at the northeast corner of Las Vegas Blvd at Flamingo was Barbary Coast, then it became Bill's Gamblin Hall & Saloon, then it was going to be called Gansevoort.

Recent issues have arisen which will likely mean it won't be named Gansevoort, however whatever the name is or will be, the construction goes on.

The large building next to Gansevoort is Flamingo.
