Even the airport is closer to the heart of the strip than this. One of the selling points of rail is usually that you deboard and are immediately in the heart of the city. This ain't that.The Strip is the heart of the Las Vegas as far as future Brightline passengers are concerned, not downtown Las Vegas. So for Brightline is concerned, downtown Las Vegas is not worth the additional construction costs to reach.
Also with Brigtline’s real estate investors are concerned, having 110 acres on the LV Strip will be far more profitable than 10 acres in downtown LV, assuming there is 10 acres available near downtown.
