Unrealized Dreams – Titanic Hotel-Casino. At a press conference in 1999, Bob Stupak, man behind the Stratosphere, announced his new vision: the Titanic Las Vegas. The proposed project, expected to cost $300 million to $1.2 billion, was planned for the Las Vegas Strip with a casino in an 800-foot replica of the Titalic, giant “icebergs” housing a hotel and theater, an aquatic petting zoo, and amusement park.
"With its glistening walls of ice towering over the Titanic Resort™, this magnificent architectural wonder makes a statement all of its own," reads the project’s website. Look for yourself - www.titanicresort.com
Las Vegas City Council nixed his plan. Stupak died in 2009
