The New Treasure Island
In a strange way, plunder and pillage truly is the theme of Treasure Island.
Previous owner MGM took a swing at transforming the joint from swashbuckling family destination into a wenchy sex dungeon vibe, replete with sexy sushi joints, Mist ultra lounge and a Christian "Ed Hardy" Audigier nightclub. Hell, even Steve Wynn performed a "bootyectomy" on his creation shortly after opening, as told to the Vegas Gang by Roger Thomas himself
Raid. Ravage. Ransack.
Inch by inch, Phil Ruffin has pored over every actionable piece of TI's real estate. He's plopped in a Starbucks (yet drinking Folgers!), Margarita bars, lousy Mexican food joints and now this....
A three level building which will contain a CVS on the bottom floor and an auto dealership on the top two floors.
New Oldsmobiles are in early this year!
And now the good news... the new addition at TI isn't going to look like a taco shack. It's going to look like a medical office building.
It could've been worse.
But what about the rest of Buccaneer Bay? They're putting in a fountain show in the unused portion... for now. Check out these construction photos via our friends at SkyScraperCity.
Thanks to VT superfriend JZ and Mac78130 for the tips!
