It's a shame Vdara is stuck all the way in the back corner because it's my favorite.

I think it will still be very visible from the freeway however.

I think that was shot from the top of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas. Vdara is just out of that picture to the right. See post number 266 for a recent picture of Vdara.

Looking at the rendering you can see why Vdara is arguably the dictionary definition of sleek.

Seeing the actual facade above makes even the render pale in comparison.

Vdara looks like something The United Nations would take up space in.
