Ormsby House Death Sentence

Well, I didn’t see this one coming. After sinking three years and $8 million dollars into the renovation project, the owners of the Ormsby House in Carson City have decided to cut their losses and tear down the building. They had always said it would have been more cost effective if they had torn down the thirty-year-old casino to begin with, instead of remodeling it. But by that time they had invested too much in the renovation, and were committed to it. Apparently they changed their mind this week. This project was never going to end, so they decided to kill it.

I’ve got more on the announcement at my Ormsby House site.

Also in the RGJ.
