A company out of Irvine California called 'Medifarm' just closed escrow on the Scotland Yard Spy Shop building at 1085 South Virginia for $1.2 million. The Scotland Yard spy shop dude then bought the building across the street, 1092 South Virginia Street for half that price. Hopefully he is moving his spy shop over there. That's a cool shop.

Medifarm is associated medical marijuana dispensaries in California and looks to be opening up shop in Nevada in both Las Vegas and Reno.

I had heard a rumor before that a medical marijuana dispensary was looking to open in that building, looks like it's not a rumor anymore!

Midtown will be getting a medical dispensary soon.

The Kings Inn is now completely gutted. You can see right through it. All of the exterior windows have been removed, leaving only support columns and the ceiling and floors. This leaves a clean slate for a variety of architectural styles.

I am hearing through the grapevine 'luxury apartments' with floor-to-ceiling glass, stained concrete floors, etc. That's just a rumor though.

As I originally reported here, the Liberty Buildings have now been leveled. The buildings were not structurally sound from what I've been told, and even the artist who painted the murals, John Ton, did not have an issue with seeing the buildings go.

Arterra was originally planned for this lot, which has since been bought by its neighbor to the West. It could be anything from a surface parking lot (I hope not) to a new office building, to maybe even new residential.
