Palms PlaceThe condominium tower standing west of Palms Casino Resort was recently granted a temporary certificate of occupancy by Clark County. Buyers who have purchased property there may now close on them and start ferrying in furniture as early as February 29.

In addition, the buildings highest four floors hold 21 penthouses that are still being worked on and are scheduled for completion in May. Despite the currently soft real estate market here in Southern Nevada, the stellar, celebrity-flavored reputation of Palms should give it an extra boost in selling the condominiums.
