Sense of Community:
Actor J. Carlton Adair conceived Lake Las Vegas around 1967 as Lake Adair. At the time he purchased the land and water rights. In 1987, Ronald Boeddeker acquired 2,000 acres from the US Government when Adair went bankrupt. The property was acquired by Transcontinental Properties in 1990. That same year, 3 billion US gal of water was diverted from nearby Lake Mead to fill the lake.The lake was built on top of the Las Vegas Wash, which continues to flow under the lake in two 96-inch diameter pipes. In 1995, Henry Gluck, the former chairman and chief executive officer of Caesars World, became the co-Chairman of Transcontinental Properties. With Sid Bass and Leen Bass, two billionaires from Fort Worth, Texas, he developed the new community. The project cost US $5 billion dollars.
