MARKETING NEWS:

  • You might have noticed on the third-floor social area there is an addition of the NiRR model. Many of you may have seen this model at the off-site marketing office while NiRR was being built. Phase II could be a different configuration when the appropriate time comes.  This Phase II is only a rendering and there are no plans at the present time to begin construction.  La Vida Llena is still in the midst of construction for their private Health Care rooms.
