According to the website lasvegasfocus.com, the implosion will be planned for sometime early next year. The new owners will then build a Plaza Hotel in its place, like the Plaza Hotel in New York. new owners of the land are going to spend between 5 and 7 billion dollars to build a Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, which will resemble the Plaza hotel in New York.

The Holy Cow Casino located just north of Sahara on Las Vegas Boulevard was a place to stop over on a hot day if only to visit the brewery and cafe.
