The business corridor on East Freemont and Charleston, nearby the Blue Angel Motel, was once a hot center of Las Vegas; about forty years ago. Over the decades it has been in decline.
Developer Arnold Stalk wants to turn it around. He and his group have purchased thousands of square feet of properties in the area, including the Blue Angel, and plan to build retail space but the biggest draw, they hope, will be a bar of live Latin Music.
Can he turn this once rundown sector into a hotbed of business? And, is he trying to provide the large Latin community with more entertainment opportunities?
Restaurants, bars, and gallery and performance spaces will fill out the spaces on East Fremont itself. But in order to really make the area thrive, we need affordable apartments nearby that will attract young people to the neighborhood. Add to that basics like grocery stores and we'll see downtown Las Vegas become a lively neighborhood.Gabrielle –Jan 3, 2012 09:34:53 AM
