Las Vegas Palazzo only weeks away from opening

The Las Vegas Palazzo hotel is just weeks away from opening. Quite when it will open is anyone’s guess, though, as there are contradictory reports of its opening day. The Las Vegas Sands Corp, the Palazzo’s owners, are claiming that it’ll open on December 20th, but the Palazzo web site will only let you book […]

Crown Las Vegas gets closer to construction

The impossible looking Crown Las Vegas hotel is inching towards becoming an actual real-life project, rather than just an architect’s outlandish dream. Now outlandish in Las Vegas terms is pretty normal, of course – in fact, you can’t build a hotel on the strip unless it’s more outlandish than its neighbours. But the Crown Las […]

The Palazzo confirms opening date

The Palazzo, one of the new Las Vegas hotels currently reaching skywards, has confirmed its set to open on December 20th 2007. Some people are surprised by this given its current state of construction (see pic above, taken on 7th July 2007 and courtesy of Mark Adams), but the Las Vegas Sands Corp., owners of […]

New Elvis-themed resort heading for the Strip?

Disturbing news reaches us that a new Elivs-themed property is being planned for the south of the Las Vegas strip between the Harley Davidson Cafe and the Smith & Wollensky building just north of the MGM Grand. This area of the strip is currently occupied by the Hawaiian marketplace, which I’ve never liked. It’s full […]

New Project CityCenter renderings

As the giant Project City Center development continues its construction, some more renderings of the new Las Vegas hotel complex have appeared from some of the project’s architects, Rafael Vinoly. The renderings show what the complex will look like both from within its center, and also how it fits in with the existing Las Vegas […]

Pictures of CityCenter Las Vegas taking shape

Project CityCenter, MGM Mirage’s mammoth $7.7 billion series of hotels and condos on the Las Vegas strip, is slowly taking shape. Actually, it’s quickly taking shape, as these new photos show! What’s interesting to me is that despite still being in the early stages of construction, the glass is being added to the building. Now, […]

Huge Las Vegas Pulse merges the Strip with Downtown

This is an artist’s rendering of Pulse, a massive mixed-use development that’s just been approved by Las Vegas City Council. Like all good Las Vegas projects, Pulse has several interesting features. The first is its location. Situated just north of the Stratosphere, Pulse aims to extend the strip further north, effectively blurring the boundaries between […]

New Echelon Place gallery added

As more renderings and photos of Echelon Place are emerging, I felt it only best to create a new Echelon Place photo gallery. Seeing the pics in the main blog is OK, but you can’t get a sense of the detail, so as there’s more room in the gallery section, it seems best all round […]

Echelon Place’s Delano Tower to float 400 feet in the air

The somewhat bland renderings of the new Echelon Place that were released a few days ago caused something of an upset on the main Vegas forums. The renderings seemed to show a pretty soulless set of buildings that would look anonymous in any city, let alone a city like Las Vegas. However, an anonymous building […]

MGM Mirage and Kirzner to build Atlantis mega-resort next to Circus Circus?

MGM Mirage purchased over 30 acres of land next to its Circus Circus hotel on the north end of the Vegas strip back in April. This gave the company over 100 acres of contiguous land in a rapidly developing area of the strip. Rumours were rife that MGM Mirage could be planning to build another […]
