#631 Villa de Flores: Grungy Little Apartment Building the Mirage Las Vegas Can’t Get Rid Of

2 min read

Welcome to Wonderhussy Adventure #631
Date of adventure: 5/3/22

When Steve Wynn bought the land to build the Mirage and Treasure Island hotels in Las Vegas, there was one little problem standing in his way: the owner of a grungy little apartment building who refused to sell! So Wynn ended up building his giant megaresorts all around it…and to this day, the Villa de Flores is a tiny island of blue-collar affordability in one of the most expensive real estate districts in America!
