go vegas tower.
I agree wholeheartedly!!! Within the next 10 years we will be seeing a lot more development upward rather than outward. The edges of the metro area are already at the edge of the mountains. Also, it is great to see so far over the last few years that Vegas is finally growing up with multiple projects getting taller and taller as each one is announced. Someday the Stratosphere will not be lonely, if anything it will have several neighbors just as big as well as bigger!
