Chicago-based Fifield Cos. announced that it has sold a two-story, 4,237-square-foot duplex penthouse at Allure Las Vegas, the luxury high-rise condo on Sahara Avenue just west of the Strip, for $1.7 million.
It’s one of the largest condo penthouse sales in Las Vegas this year and shows the strength of Allure’s brand, said Alan Schachtman, senior vice president at Fifield.
The 40th-floor penthouse has three bedrooms, three baths, a lavish kitchen and a 1,500-square-foot balcony facing the Strip. Schachtman said he continues to see "tremendous demand" for residences at Allure, which has sold 60 percent of its 427 units. Studio units are priced from $160,000.
Realtor Rob Jenson of The Jenson Group in Las Vegas said he’d like to know who the "idiot" was that paid the $1.7 million. "There’s no value there. I hope he likes it," Jenson said.
He said you can buy units at Panorama Towers closer to the Strip for the mid-$200,000 to low-$300,000s.
