The strip features pyramids, "Roman" palaces, Parisian mansard roofs, a fake NYC skyline, rollercoasters, castle parapets, Venetian bell towers, etc. I realize there is a major push to de-theme the place and build more "grown-up," but I think it's a mistake. Vegas ought to go with the flow and build the over-the-top, multi towered Plaza replica.
Now that is truly a nonsensical comment, to say the least, providing no positives in Las Vegas' small replication of other cities....

the back side of fountainbleau is amazing at the moment - the entire parking/convention/podium is exposed - you can see a mess of steel everywhere - the size of these trusses are amazing - 20 foot deep shears of metal hanging 100s of feet in the air - wow

that building back their is i think, 20 stories - HUGE

the podium / casino is interesting right now - the center part is still dirt, but they built the area close to the street (the riviera blvd facade is going up now - its some weird curvy / wavy thing - new.


the FB sales center looks good - but i think empty -


curious that the venetian condo project has taken down one of its cranes...?



the echelon mcdonaolds is almost done - itll be a snazzy place - lcds all over the front - very fresh

they are taking down the TRUMP sales center sign - possibly they building too soon


they are also taking down the second bellagio sign along the 15 freeway


i went to juhl again today - i LOVE that place - there are parts that look like old warehouses (brick / curtain walls) then staggered balconies, alternating porches - a tower component, loft - double height / single height ceilings -
RETAIL (which is almost all sold) -everything is great, it should really change that area


(not only is streamlines 1st floor vacant - soho, still has not filled their first floor tenant)

i forgot who it was, but someone was saying that they thought that the elevator shaft for the citycenter's main hotel was in a bad location because it took away rooms that could have had good views.

I thought i'd mention that the elevator shafts, first of all, have to be in the 2 taller towers...duh. and secondly they are built where the shorter east and west wings merge out.. the narrow crevice where people wouldn't get much of a view. As you can see in this photo..

I don't like CityCenter's location inside the strip...it kinda ruins the strip's vibe for that stretch...

Hugo, it used to be mostly an empty lot there for many decades, just a couple very small t-shirt shops and a restaurant along the edge of the strip, the small boardwalk hotel in the corner, a helicopter pad, a golf course way in the back and a huge empty lot in the middle. There was no vibe.
