Las Vegas - Highlights 2

Las Vegas highlights 2 photographed in December 2010:
In August 2009 I posted a thread of photos taken in Las Vegas in October 2007 and April 2008. This new thread features projects not shown in the first thread, several of which are newly built projects completed since then. Two major new projects (CityCenter Las Vegas and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas) are not featured in this thread; I have enough images of both to feature them in their own threads.

Las Vegas Premium Outlets:
Near downtown, this center is not exactly a highlight but is designed with the typical bold forms of many projects in the metro area.













Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health:
Near the outlet mall as well as the World Market Center and Clark County Government Center featured in the first thread, this small new complex is undeniably a Frank Gehry design.





















Downtown Buildings:
The edges of the city's small downtown area include some new projects, such as the Transportation Center, the renovation of the Foley Federal building, Molasky Center (Southern Nevada Water Authority), and a new condo complex called Juhl Lofts.

















Residential Highrises:
Towers along the length of The Strip vicinity are increasing the city's focus on its famous entertainment area.













Planet Hollywood Westgate:
This large hotel and casino complex on The Strip has added a tower at the rear of the property which is definitely more modern in design than the existing one. This one was intended to be residential and have a twin tower next to it; currently it looks like it is used as an extension of the hotel and there is no sign of construction on a second structure.













Bally's Entrance:
This boldly lit walkway leads to the entrance of this large hotel and casino on The Strip; it is a more modern feature that helps enliven what is a relatively mundane property compared to many of its neighbors.







Trump International Hotel:
Also on The Strip, this new tower is surprisingly mundane. It lacks the interesting forms and patterns of many of its highrise contemporaries. Furthering the surprise: it was designed to eventually have a twin next to it!



Encore Hotel and Casino:
This new property is an extension of the adjacent Wynn Hotel and Casino on The Strip. The tower is nearly identical to the slightly older one. Its interiors are similar in design to the original half of the complex, with stylized and exaggerated details that form a unique twist on bright elegance.































Palazzo Hotel and Casino and Shops:
Traditional theming on The Strip is not entirely dead, as this new property illustrates. Although it is not a shmaltzy recreation of another place or time, it is definitely inspired by Italianate themes framed in a more subdued modern context.





























Strip interiors:
The casino hotels feature many restaurants, shops, and theaters within their complexes. Together they contain a dizzying array of new design-y interiors!

Phantom Theater Lobby at The Venetian:





Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill at MGM Grand:





Tao at The Venetian:











Lavo at Palazzo:



A bar at Palazzo:



Emeril's New Orleans Fish House at MGM Grand:



Samba at The Mirage:





Stack at The Mirage:





Eyecandy at Mandalay Bay:





Aquaknox at The Venetian:





A bar at Red Rock:



Rouge at MGM Grand:







Red Sushi at Golden Nugget:





Revolution at The Mirage:





Misura at MGM Grand:



Intermix at The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace:



H & M at The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace:











Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesar's Palace:









Enjoy!

Very comprehensive! I appreciate the extra work you made in checking out the interiors (Which is often a very underrated aspect of Vegas). All killer indeed!

Had the pleasure of staying on the PH level more or less underneath the "W" in Oct... great hotel, amazing views, disastrous consequences.

Yikes! Where is Nevada getting this money from? I wonder how much water this building uses? I guess you need a command center when you have to pretty much manufacture your water supply.

Great shots!

Mr. Trump has the most god-awful taste.

tdawg, I agree, that Trump hotel is so out-of-step with the city, sited poorly, and looks to be the product of design sensibilities of 30 years ago (even though it is new).
