A Chicago investment fund has acquired a suburban Las Vegas strip mall.
Jones Lang La Salle Income Property Trust on Thursday bought Montecito Marketplace in the northwest valley for about $63.5 million, property records show. Allan Swaringen, president and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust, said Montecito is an “excellent fit” in its retail portfolio as the company increases its “exposure to high-quality, grocery-anchored centers in strong metropolitan markets.” JLL did not disclose the seller in its announcement, but property records indicate it was New York-based Brixmor Property Group.
In a press release, the company said the 190,000-square-foot plaza, located on North Durango Drive near the 215 Beltway-U. Highway 95 interchange, is fully leased and anchored by a Smith’s grocery store and T.
Las Vegas is an American comedy-drama television series which aired on NBC from 2003 to 2008.
The show centres around a team of employees who work at the Montecito Resort and Casino in – you guessed it – Las Vegas.
The team must handle every high a low, dangerous and mundane predicament that they encounter as they try to operate the various parts of Montecito.
In the fictitious Las Vegas resort and casino, the cast was met by famous faces, terrifying criminals, and hilarious occurrences within the team which kept the series chugging along for five solid seasons of hijinks in Sin City.
The series originally centred around Ed Deline (played by James Caan) as he made his way up from being the head of security at Montecito to being named the head of operations, watching him deal with the new responsibilities as he rose up the ladder as well as the major occurrences along the way.
This was until part way through season four when Ed left after becoming a suspect in the murder of Mary Connell’s (Nikki Cox) father, forcing him to go into hiding.
With Ed gone, his protégé, Danny Mc Coy (Josh Duhamel), stepped up to become the president of operations and Mike Cannon (James Lesure), who had worked as a valet and in the security department – both at Montecito – got promoted to head of security and surveillance.
Among other key members of the team was Sam Marquez (Vanessa Marcil), the self-proclaimed best casino host in the world; Delinda Deline (Molly Sims) manages the entertainment, food and beverages; organising the special events was Mary Connell (Nikki Cox), and the one known as “The Ice Queen”, Nessa Holt (Marsha Thomason).
The excitement and character development were always rolling in Las Vegas.
