As stated in January's news, the Tam O'Shanter Motel closed down and was demolished earlier this year (2004). This 1959 motel was familiar to Vegas buffs for its rather colorful marquee and was a survivor amidst the the sprawl of the mega resorts.

Well, no longer. The Venetian is planning another 1,000 room tower complex at this site after purchasing the site in 1998.

Well say your goodbye to the Tam O'Shanter. And say welcome to another huge tower.
