Sounds like there is a very real possibility that the New Frontier will be demolished in 2006.
The Las Vegas Sun reports on comments by owner Phil Ruffin:

When is the fountainbleau expected to break ground?
Don't hold your breath. Any date put forth right now is speculation...
There is a LOT of planning on that project and until financing is coming together, which it probably will, it's just an announcement.
I stayed there once... my 21st birthday... DEMOLISH THAT P.O.S!!
I stayed at the Wynn last week, and wandered over to the Frontier. I was told by one of the desk personnel there that:
a) Steve Wynn won't let Donald Trump get a gaming license in Las Vegas
b) Therefore, Trump will partner with the Frontier owner where Trump provides the hotel and they rebuild the Frontier, attached to the Trump hotel, as long as Trump doesn't take part in the gaming
c) the Frontier is supposed to come down in October of this year.
That's just a second-hand report.
