After Fire New Owners Transform Las Vegas Hotel Into Modern Flats

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The Alpine Motel Apartments fire site in Las Vegas has been completely rebuilt.

The structure, which was built in the 1970s, caught fire three years ago this week, killing six inhabitants.

The renamed DLUX Lofts boasts new features and art on the side of the building.

“It’s really a brand-new spot top to bottom,” Senior VP Multifamily Investments at Northcap Robin Willett said.

Before investors poured a few million dollars into the refurbishment, Willett claimed, crews had already stripped the building down to the studs.

Because the fire did not damage the building’s construction, they were able to maintain the frame while starting from scratch.

“It was truly a blank canvas,” Willett said.

All utilities, windows, roof, and flooring have been replaced. For the studio flats, there are modern upgrades such as a video intercom system and Bluetooth door locks.

The goal is to be a part of the downtown regeneration while also catering to a younger demographic.

“We figured the age demographic would primarily fall into renters in their 20s to 30s that are a little bit more into tech. This is mostly a walkable site, which again proximity is big,” Willett said.

Willett believes the location would be ideal for casino employees as well.

An unsupervised cooktop triggered the December 2019 fire. At the time, there were no smoke alarms and an unlocked escape door.

Following the fatal fire, investigators reported more than 40 code breaches.

It has now resulted in modifications in the monitoring of older long-term Las Vegas hotels. There are now necessary rigorous inspections and upkeep.

Since March, the building and safety department has gone to the old Alpine Apartments on 9th and Stewart 65 times. According to the city of Las Vegas, fire inspectors have completed six inspections.

According to the city, there have been no code infractions.

“We received a full new state-of-the-art fire sprinkler system that are in the hallway and in the rooms,” Willett said.

According to Willett, the studios will rent for $1,150 to $1,350 per month.

Tenants will begin moving in within 60 days.
