Third Tower at Marriott’s Grand Chateau Tops Out; Court Approves Harmon Tower Demolition

One of Las Vegas’ most high-profile luxury developments of the year is undoubtedly Marriott’s Grand Chateau project. The three-tower complex that would offer residents a wide range of amenities and villa-style accommodations has only recently reached an important milestone. The general contractor of the project, the Tutor Perini Building Corporation, has topped-out the third tower of the complex, a mere 13 months after breaking ground at the site. The third tower of Marriot Vacation Club’s ambitious project will complete the overall appeal of the development, complementing the other towers that comprise the Grand Chateau.

Thirteen months after breaking ground, Tutor Perini Building Corp. has topped out the 37-story third tower of Marriott’s Grand Chateau project.

According to Marriott Vacation Club, the property will begin to accommodate owners next summer. Comprising 223 one-, two- and three-bedroom units, the third tower will offer such amenities as a lobby-level lounge, a billiards area with electronic game tables, whirlpool spas, and a three-level parking deck. Upon completion, the third tower will bring the total number of units at Grand Chateau to more than 600.

Grand Chateau will feature contemporary-style villas with sizes ranging between 810 and 2,070 square feet. In-unit features will include granite countertops, fully equipped kitchens, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, generous living space, multiple flat-panel LED TVs with Blu-Ray capabilities and WiFi access throughout. Grand Chateau’s three-bedroom villas can accommodate up to 10 guests.

Tutor-Saliba also figures prominently in the latest twist to another high-profile Las Vegas project. Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez ruled that MGM Grand will be permitted to tear down Harmon Tower, which Tutor-Saliba built as part of CityCenter, the Las Vegas Sun reported. Gonzalez’s decision follows a fourth series of tests on the troubled project. Demolition could start in 2014.
