Around ten months to go until the bridge is finished. It really is coming along nicely.

Whoever did the new citycenter website needs to use this pic as a reference. The Harmon looks great.

The casino is located in Aria. http://arialasvegas.com/

Vdara will be connected to Bellagio via a covered walk way. A tram is also available, with three stops: Bellagio, The Crystals and Monte Carlo.

Making up for the disappointment that was this years New Years celebration. LVCVA has announced that the fireworks will be fired from tops of hotels for next year. Hopefully this will improve tourism for New Years. Here is a link to the story including the list of hotels participating in the fireworks.

i visited the monte carlo's new parking garage... you can only park on the second floor, but still "AMAZING" I so regret not having a camera, because i went up to the top level and the all around views were unbelievable, including the view of citycenter.

Crystals Place Cont.

Deborah Berke and Partners will be creating the Chihuly Gallery. Here's the description http://www.dberke.com/work/com/chihuly/t.htm








The Press Center for Rodney Lough Jr. mentions MGM MIRAGE choosing five, world renowned artists to occupy "Artist Row". (Note Philipp Plein is a fashion designer, but I guess he can be considered an artist)

Crystals Place Cont. Cont.

After seeing the few renderings, I believe "Crystals Place" is not inside The Crystals but closer to the Mandarin Oriental (I could be wrong). The Mandarin Architect Kohn Pedersen Fox does have that section of the Mandarin labeled as retail. Here's KPF website http://www.kpf.com/main.asp
