The article reports on the postponement of construction on the 2 million-square-foot World Jewelry Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally scheduled to start construction in 2009, developers have also scrapped plans to include residential condominiums in the project. According to Robert Zarnegin, principal and developer of the project, they intend to begin construction when the economy recovers from the recession. The project calls for a tower that would be home to jewelry makers, in addition to office condominiums, restaurants and offices.
