Anyone with a recent aerial photo so we can compare size and impact on the skyline with the existing buildings??

Great photos M-Die!

The panorama shot of the main citycenter building is great. It occurs to me that the views from this building may not be as great as a lot of us may have imagined. A majority of views are probably of the I-15 freeway, or else the Monte-Carlo, or other close buildings such as Vdara (may or may not be good view).

Anyway, it may be like driving around in a flashy sports car and looking out the window and just seeing a lot of beat up civics all around you.

?

^If I have a billion dollars, I would acquire the land opposite of CityCenter and build a hotel. So my hotel guests can look out their window and see the beautiful view. Kind of like living in Paris and looking at The Bellagio.

They should be assembling the first truss and you should be seeing more trusses being put up in the next couple of weeks ;-)

Thanks for that info.

Is that the odd shaped building that this red arrow is pointing at or the building below it?

I love the look of that thing, but really, as far as the way it associates with the surrounding neighborhood (if you can call The Strip a neighborhood) turns it into Le Corbusier's dream.

From the plans it looks like that would be the Cirque du Soleil theater. The convention may be behind it.

The arrow does point to the theatre. That is correct and yes, the convention center I was talking about is right below it.
Where did you get that picture from??

Okay, now I see, looking back at the construction photo the steel frame is further west and they haven't started the showroom yet.

The rendering is in the March 22nd JP Morgan presentation pdf.

Wow, awesome rendering.

I can't help but think of an airport terminal when I see that road system at the bottom - not a whole lot of difference.

How many cars will that garage hold? 5,000-10,000?

So there are 12 tower cranes on the site so far.

Here are some shots around the southwest side.

This project seems to be moving forward at an alarming rate, imagine what it will look like in 3 months!

I would love to see how they are working the scheduling and organization for this project.

It would be absolutely great if someone could get a set of pics from above. With these megaprojects that is usually the best angle to understand the site, progress, and vision.
