Spanish Palms reports high turnout at opening
The grand opening of the Spanish Palms condominium complex in the southwestern valley drew numerous visitors, according to project manager Brandon Schneider.
"We had more than 500 people come through the guard-gated entry last Sunday," Schneider said. "In fact, one guy lined up here at 2 a.m. so he could be the first buyer."

The project offers three floor plans: the one-bedroom, one-bath Cabana model, which measures 765 square feet; the Islander, a 1,050-square-foot home with two bedrooms and two baths; and the three-bedroom, two-bath Mediterranean floor plan, which is 1,120 square feet.
All homes come with travertine tile around the fireplaces, entries, baths, kitchens and laundry rooms, as well as raised-oak cabinetry, stainless-steel kitchen appliances, granite counter tops, upgraded lighting throughout, fireplaces and direct-access garages. A patio or balcony is also included.
"Two features that really blew away visitors were the fireplace and direct-access garage," Schneider said.
Prices start from the $170,000s.
Common areas include mature landscaping, picnic areas, a playground, basketball and volleyball courts, visitor parking spaces, a clubhouse and swimming pool. The clubhouse includes a fitness center, kitchen, party area, and business center with free Internet access and a fax. The swimming pool area features a barbecue pit, chaises, and a waterfall feature.
"The fitness center will be open 24 hours a day and features a flat-screen TV to make exercising a bit more bearable," Schneider said.
To visit, take the Las Vegas Beltway to Rainbow Boulevard and go north, past Hacienda Avenue, to the entry just south of Tropicana Avenue.
The sales office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
