In another life (just a few years ago), it was the Streamline, a clunky pink condominium tower built when the boom felt like it would last forever and the city was permitting one mediocre high-rise after another. Thankfully, the Streamline quickly mastered the Las Vegas art of reinvention. A lot of white paint has helped transform it into the Ogden, a far more sober apartment tower that now capably holds down the northern end of downtown and hovers above East Fremont. One-bedrooms are now quickly leasing for $1,200; three-bedrooms for $2,000. And management expects the 275-unit property to be fully leased before year’s end. The Ogden is still not great architecture—but with Zappos coming a block away, it is poised to lead the creative-class charge back to downtown. 150 Las Vegas Blvd. North, 685-0300.
