According to this article, and also the wikipedia entry for it, the new mall (2002) called Neonopolis has been a commercial failure; it is located on the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas.
I remember hearing about how downtown was being revitalized–this for years. But yet even while the economy was good, the mall seems to be a failure “mostly empty, save for a restaurant and pool hall anchoring one ground floor corner, and a sparsely attended movie theater complex on its top floor.”
Why did this thing fail so bad? Why is downtown las vegas such a money pit? I would have thought even with just a small proportion of the Strip tourists, the mall would have done better. Why is downtown going down?
