Spanish View Towers

Rumour has it that Spanish View Towers is set to resume construction. Believe it when I see the crane moving.

Trump looks sharp. Love the tower, mostly for its glass color. Fits perfectly in Vegas.

I wish Trump would have accented it a complementary color like green or burgundy. There's too many all gold buildings in Vegas.

Last week I was driving down Rancho south of Palace Station, along the freeway, and I noticed that they were tearing up the Scandi miniature golf site and was wondering what was going there.

Well, here's a little news:

Station makes first move in Palace revamp

BY ARNOLD M. KNIGHTLY
December 22, 2006

A subsidiary of Station Casinos and FBLV Holding Company have entered into an operating agreement that combines 52 acres of land behind Palace Station stretching back to Desert Inn Road, according to a notice that was filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Calls to Station Casinos executives revealed that the office is closed until Wednesday for the holiday.

The Las Vegas Sun reported in July that realtors were buying up houses behind the Palace Station, which is located on the corner of Rancho Drive and Sahara Avenue. While the agents never revealed who they were working for, residents of the area speculated that Station Casinos was behind the purchases.

According to the SEC filing, it is anticipated that the joint venture will develop, construct and manage a master development plan with mixed-use residential, retail, and entertainment.

The agreement includes the old 4.39-acre Scandia Family Fun Center that was sold to the New York-based Fisher Brothers for $6.35 million in September 2005. That sale closed earlier this year.

Hate seeing stalled construction like that. Here's a link to the story in the press:

These EIFS facades are killing me. I know they are cheap, but they look cheap, too.

what is eifs facades?

turnberry towers elevator shafts are now almost completely done being painted. it is weird, having a big white void from all the gree windows, but i still dont understand why they didnt bring the balconies around the shafts? why leave that space empty and unusable?

also, i dont know when, or how but the roller coaster on the strat is now completly gone! you can see it in the above picture, i dont get how they took it down without a helicopter or crane...?

lately allure is topped out! the crown skeleton is done. it looks nice.....and real change in the skyline.

^^ Scott, the roller coaster on the Strat was taken down a while ago, and I'm almost positive it was by helicopter. IIRC, the reason it was removed was so a night club space could be added to the tower.

When they'd take down the Higher Roller?!

EIFS is Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems, which is a mult-layered exterior wall system that consists of an insulation board, a base coast which is painted onto the insulation board and usually reinforced with fiberglass mesh, and lastly a finish coat that is painted to look like a certain type of stone material.



As for why they didn't do anything with the elevator cores/towers it's really as simple as cutting costs.

Happy Holidays folks,

EIFS has been a pet peeve of mine for several years now. You can get up close to this crap at you local suburban strip mall. It usually resembles stucco, but it can look looe anything, brick, stone, you name it. It has seems filled with a flexible silicone. Most of the "reasonablly priced" track homes, and virtualy everything on the L V Strip is made from this stuff. For instance, most of the Venetian, inside and out, is all EFIS.

Glad to see I'm not the only one that has a pet peeve when it comes to EIFS and GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete). I'd even prefer they use stained, precast concrete, which is the lesser of two evils, IMO.
