Las Vegas is renowned the world over for having the latest in technology and architecture. It’s out with the old and in with the new. This has been seen over the decades, particularly with hotel and casino’s. Spectacular demolitions of older properties on the Las Vegas strip to build bigger and fancier mega resorts. Even commercial and residential spaces over the years have had a similar fate. However, if your looking for something mid century or historical, you still have options in Las Vegas!
