Amazing pics, thanks! Man that sneak peak of the inside of Crystals is killing me. I can already see the tree house looks near exact to the concept drawings.

Next week it all starts happening!!

Did you guys notice how that streetlamp near Vdara lights up? It lights up in the shape of a CityCenter logo. Kinda nifty.

So... I guess it's a good time to ask- who will be attending the Grand Opening of Aria? I booked my rooms and flights... Vdara ended up sold out (missed it) but they booked us in the Spa Tower at Bellagio for the 15th. Moving into Aria the 16th and 17th!

I absolutley love this part of the timeline prior to opening. There are so many factors which must fall into place!

I'm arriving on the 15th, they offered us $99/night at the Bellagio. I will be at the grand opening on the 16th and will post pictures as soon as I can, late that evening. Want to meet up for a cocktail? Hopefully still closing on Veer condo in February.

Oops- my dates are off... I'm at Bellagio the 16th (Grand Opening Night) and moving into Aria the 17th and 18th... Would definitely like to arrange a meet up for all those who would like to attend? After all, this may be the last opportunity for a meet at a grand opening for quite a while...

By chance- if one wanted to pursue staying at Aria on the 16th, (Invited Guest Only?) how does one get on that list?

It's my understanding that Dec 16th is the grand opening party only, no one yet staying in Aria's rooms until the 17th.

Oh wow- then perhaps those of us staying in the hotel on the 17th will be staying in a brand new Aria room! I would have assumed that they would have invited only guests (celebrities, media, etc) fill the rooms on grand opening night (the 16th..?) I know this has been done in the past at other resort openings.

Does anyone have a schedule of events for the 16th? I'm wondering what time they plan on opening Aria (assuming midnight Wednesday) and what type of events they are planning. Exciting times!

According to my schedule of events, there are fireworks scheduled for 11pm on the 16th with the public opening at 11:30pm.

There's a party preceding, starting at 8pm for invited guests.

Maybe I'll just pull a "Michaele and Tareq Salahi" and crash the 8pm party...

Build It Bigger: CityCenter

Caught the Build It Bigger: CityCenter special on the Science Channel last night.

They highlighted a lot of the complexity of Veer Towers which was incredible. The elevator core is the only part of the building that is plum and acts as the spine of the building. If the core was built even 1 degree off it would compromise the entire building.

All the pillars lean at a 4.63 degree angle in two directions that move away from the core.

Aria is two opposite interlocking "Cs" that share the elevator core right at the center, creating four not-so-lengthy hallways of rooms. The hotel couldn't surpass a 600ft height restriction and Aria's design was the result of a competition among architects.
