Nice to meet all guys here,

Duration : Phase 1 : Podium to be opened by the end of 2006; Phase 2 : 2008

It feels like this is going to be changed like the old Trump Tower in Palm Jumeirah

I had no idea it was already so far into construction!

It will certainly be one of the strangest skyscrapers ever. I can't decide if I like it or not though?!

It's pretty ugly but, then again, Macau is not exactly renowned for its taste and restraint. It should fit well.

Not really an extension,
yap, it locates just next to the original hotel/casino,
however the developer is aiming at enhance her market share by introducing a world-class one,
you know the original one is really disgusting.

On the other hand,
somebodies raise that the new constructions surrounding the original one have damaged its fung shui atmosphere,
therefore the new building is to regulate it and "work" against the competitors.
