Cool Fontainebleau Resort Sale Center

The new Las Vegas Fontainebleau Resort sales center is going to be very contemporary just as expected for this great project. I just reviewed the renderings and hope to post them soon on here. Check out details at

Are we ever going to get better renderings of the project or will it be a secret till we see the real building??? I want to get excited about the project, but it's hard to get excited about a build that has no public renderings...? The one in the paper left more questions then answers.

I couldn't agree more. I think it looks stupid. The new tower blocks the south views of the Palace tower and the Palace Tower blocks the north views of the new tower. This placement will also block the sun from the pool, during the nicer months.

The new tower should have been adjacent to the Palace tower (parallel to I-15). What the hell were they thinking.

I did a study using my quick sketch-up model. For those of you who don't know, stetch-up has a shadow feature where you can set the date and time.

With the new tower, the pool area at Caesars will only have sun during the hottest months (when shade would be nice) and will be in partial of full shade between Sept and March (when sun would be something folks would welcome).

Here is a screen shot showing the shade on Oct. 15th at noon.

Here's how they should do it - IM(not so)HO
I'm really hoping someone at Harrah's sees this and slaps their forehead.
Can anyone here tell me why this is not a better idea or why this wouldn't work?

-Better views for all towers
-Sun all year
OK, I'll admit, there would be a longer walk to the tower - but that's the only negitive I can come up with

Harrahs are idiots, plain and simple. they have been running a rinky dink operation for far too long now.
i have 0% hope towards their plans for their "big" plans at ip, harrahs, ballys and barbary coast.

I have a feeling that they may actually add a tower over there in that direction after they build this latest one. Then they will have towers with views of the pool all the way around like thier Flamingo hotel towers across the street.

not a bad rendering but still poorly planned. are they re glassing the old towers? re painting removing the reed roof?
btw they forgot to inclue the massive power lines that will be blocking a majority of those lower level views.

on another note, the pulse project looks too dense. something i thought id never say about a project.

Why not, the whole place is a clusterfk now, they might as well box it all in for a real claustrophobic feel.

The Flamingo is fairly open where the main pool is and the giant wall of pink mirrors gives reflectivity to the whole courtyard. Not bad. But this is another story altogether.

Also, I don't care for the similar-yet-different design of the towers. In this case, they should have built a clone of the Augustus Tower.

I wholeheartedly agree. That project is way toooo dense for its own good.

Thanks for using My Model of Ceasers Palace Its really kind of a compliment.

Well the new Tower SUCKS! It has no real detail (You know, the Major Colums) I've always loved the architecture of the whol complex, like a mini City Skyline, but this Tower ruins it all!

Who wants views of the Other Tower or the Bellagio's Ass? While your in the Agustus Tower, Dont forget to wave at the people in the other hallway 1 cm away!

Jazfingr, you plan is way better, I though thats what it was going to turn out like!

Your models are real good, Patrick. They make it easy to remodel and add to the existing structures. Thanks for all your dedicated work.

I would agree that their new plan is not thought out as well as it could be. I think it is hillarious that people on this blog are much better planners and designers than the people paid.

Harrah's is doing a great job with designing the new Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi though. I have been allowed to see some great sketches and designs of the master plan and hope to post them on the MS Gulf Coast blog soon. ( ). It seems like Harrah's has always been better at planning things outside Las Vegas and MGM has been the masters of Las Vegas.

This is apparently a new project, near the Hard Rock.
