The article reports on Neonopolis, the mostly vacant mall at Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street in Nevada, which operates without air conditioning in much of the property. According to the article, the condition already drove Galaxy Theaters out of the mall. H. Stephen Jackson, an architect and artist who is among the Neonopolis tenants, said the building was too warm during the winter months. He adds that the said condition is undermining his efforts to showcase his art for clients.
