Despite all of the growth on Fremont East, one monstrosity of a failure still looms large over downtown. I’m speaking, of course, about the largely vacant mall, Neonopolis. However, the Las Vegas Review Journal reports today that brighter days may be ahead. In addition to last week’s announcement that Denny’s signed a 20-year lease (ensuring Fremont Street bar patrons they’ll always have a place to get some cheap food after a long night of drinking), several other shops are apparently on the way.

I can’t help but be a tad skeptical because the owner of Neonopolis has announced several tenants over the years that have either bailed after a few months or never panned out at all (Star Trek Experience). I remain hopeful. A thriving Neonopolis would certainly benefit the rest of downtown.

    After they dropped the ball on the Star Trek Experence, I’m begining to think that the owner of Neonopolis is trying to lose money. Perhaps it’s tangled up in a messy divorce or maybe he just needs a tax write off. Given the freemont street crowd, Denny’s seems like it may be a good idea … which means that it probably wont happen.

    I would be more hopeful if somebody different owned Neonopolis. I just don’t think this guy knows what he’s doing. I would be happy to be proven wrong, though.
