Las Vegas occupancy was 94.1 percent in the first quarter. It stood at 95.4 percent during the fourth quarter.

This note from CB Richard Ellis about a record amount of office space that will be built in Las Vegas in 2007 and 2008. There is more than 4.2 million square feet under construction and 25.2 million square feet.
