I think the sign is where the elevator shafts/core were built, so it will not block any views...

Great picture!!!

Incredable shots!!! Thanks for the close-ups as well as the shot of the entire skyline! Regarding Fountainebleau, I counted 63 completed floors with progress on the 64th floor. Appears that 36th floor is a mechanical floor as well, you can see there is no glass facade on that floor... Also, appears that the hotel rooms start on the 5th floor.

Welcome to the forum... I myself am pumped to see Las Vegas grow more everyday! Fountainebleau is my favorite of the whole bunch.

BTW, I also counted 47 floors for Mandrian Oriental...

you think the pics of citycenter look amazing... wait till you see the thing in person. pics can't even explain how amazingly large this project is.

I was looking at the fountainebleau from the freeway, man that thing is tall... it dominates all the buildings around it.

one qstn... there's a pretty big parking garage that just went up halfway between the freeway and the stratosphere, what is it for?

I think you might be talking about the one on Industrial Rd that will be used by a taxi and limousine company.

also today boyd gaming hit its lowest in stock points in 5 years


the bellagio turned 10 years old (could be demoed soon - j/k)
