That Sky Photograph is from two weeks ago. I did not notice whether the top was completed but I assume it was.

Sky is topped off now and the topping off tree is on its roof. Over 600 workers have been building this great luxury high rise and it's still expecting to be ready for its new residents in January 2007. Can't wait as it's my future home.

Set Back Requirements for Casinos, High Rises etc

In case you were not aware, the County planning commission created set back rules for casinos, high rises and other tall structures. Ref chapter 30-56 Site Development Standards. Now let's see if they hold to such rules or allow lots of exemptions. They are in summary format (rules are more complex but here's a high level guideline):
  1. Zero to 200 feet high = 17 foot setback
  2. 200 foot high = 80 foot setback
  3. 300 foot high = 113 foot setback
  4. 400 foot high = 146 foot setback
  5. 500 foot high = 180 foot setback

When you look at projects like Maxim and its oddly shaped foot print of land, the set back requirements are going to be very interesting. So far, nothing has been submitted for the Maxim project but they are digging like crazy on the land. Possibly removing all of the previous service station underground tanks etc.

Cool Sky Las Vegas

For sure. Helped the developers redesign the top of the building for their Sky Suites and now they really rock. Original plan wasn't a good use of space or layout and the revised one reflects what our luxury high rise buyers want in that type of unit.

this mornings news talked about the klondike losing, then it showed new renderings and animation of CITY CENTER. A pretty different look now, they said today in a press conference they are going to talk about some NEW amenities that will be there. ALSO, today they mentioned work starts over the boardwalk site- today the REAL work get started?

Project City Center Update

From the Review-Journal:

Construction on MGM Mirage's $7 billion Project CityCenter got under way just after midnight Sunday with the arrival of a convoy of trucks delivering 10,000 cubic yards of concrete to the largest privately financed construction project in the United States.

Mirage Resorts President Robert Baldwin, who is overseeing the 18 million-square-foot, mixed-use urban village, said the pour is one of the largest in Las Vegas history and marks the first stage of construction on the project.

Further, he said it underscores MGM Mirage's commitment to the project and marks a paradigm shift for the company.

This is the first time MGM Mirage has undertaken a project this large, one that will integrate residential condominiums and a major retail mall with a hotel-casino development, Baldwin said.

MGM Mirage Chairman Terry Lanni said Project CityCenter marks a "significant milestone in our vision to create a living experience like none other in Las Vegas."

Deutsche Bank analyst Andrew Zarnett said Project CityCenter will "drive growth in the company over the next five years."

Brian Gordon, a partner in the Las Vegas-based consulting firm Applied Analysis, agreed that the project represents a major change for Las Vegas.

"This is a shift in the way Las Vegas has developed. Instead of three-winged hotel-casino towers like we've traditionally seen, this will be a truly self-contained metropolitan resort, maximizing the value of its every square foot on the Las Vegas Strip," he said.

The biggest differences from past Strip developments, Gordon said, are that Project CityCenter will include a large component of residential condominiums, more amenities that offer something for everyone and enough entertainment that it will generate little foot traffic to neighboring resorts.

In the next week, Perini Building Co. will pour concrete in three phases for the 12-foot-deep foundation of the Cesar Pelli-designed hotel-casino tower, the most visible architectural component of the project.

One million cubic yards of dirt were removed to pave the way for the concrete pour and construction work for the new tower.

MGM Mirage has had 600 people working on the design and construction management phase of the project, Baldwin said.

When construction peaks in 2008, 7,200 employees will be working on the project.

And when it is fully built and opened, Project CityCenter will have 12,000 employees.

Project CityCenter will feature the 60-story, 4,000-room Pelli hotel-casino, the foundation of which is now being poured.

It will also include two 400-room, nongaming hotels; 500,000 square feet of retail shops, dining and entertainment venues; and residential condominiums.

MGM Mirage is expected to announce at a press conference this morning the addition of Studio Daniel Libeskind, Murphy/Jahn Architects and Rockwell Group to the architectural design team.

These firms will give shape to the project's retail and residential components, a modern urban residential district with high-end shops, gourmet restaurants and unique pedestrian environments, Baldwin said.

"The addition of Studio Daniel Libeskind, Murphy/Jahn and Rockwell Group -- architectural firms acclaimed for their remarkable global portfolios -- appropriately round out a design team with the credentials to shape the future look of Las Vegas and set the benchmark for new growth in this city and beyond," he said.

CityCenter

They made some pretty big changes to the plan. If this is indeed the latest model, there is now a big central tower in front of the twin hotel towers. Looks like the Mandarin hotel was changed to a boring retangular tower. I liked the old design more. The circular walkway is also gone?! There seems to be no replacement walkway. Don't tell me you can build a 7 billion dollar resort and not have a walkway. In a news clip the nice spiral tower seems to be awol. I'm happy with the project as a whole but the changes, oh never mind. Least the main resort towers are still the same.

thats great news about citycener. From the article is appears the foundation pour is going on for only one building in the complex; the tallest building. Is that right? Or is the foundation pour occurring for multiple building in the complex?

The reason I put it back is because, Ivana may be cancelled but The Summit isnt, if it keeps appearing on the Las Vegas 3d project Maps then it isnt cancelled.

That particular project has been cancelled, though. There is currently no plan for the site, only a vision/concept. It's not a proposal as nothing has been seriously proposed since. The only thing the site still has the the option to build up to the approved height, but that is highly unlikely. The site is currently a development zone, not the Ivana or Summit.
