Yeah, they don't mess around with construction around here. Before some of the glass was installed, it looked like some giant moonbase- I counted at least 9 cranes just driving by one day. The slowest construction by far was Trump's first tower. That thing took forever.

I just went to the GlobXplorer Image Atlas and I saw that the parking garage for the nearby Monte Carlo Hotel was destroyed for this project. Now the Monte Carlo won't have a parking garage of its own.

Yeah, here it is a couple days after being imploded. It was really small compared to the gigantic one they are building in its place that will be used by both CityCenter and MC. But yeah, right now MC only has surface parking.

No, not from me. It's been too hot all summer to spend much time out shooting down there and tomorrow I'm moving my office to Summerlin and won't be going to the strip as often as I did the past year. Maybe twice a month I'll go down there.

Stay away from Monte Carlo if you could.

I was there about 2 weeks and the parking was quite horrible. Valet parking too the longest of all the hotels on the strip, and if you come back @ night, they got no parking NOR VALET! They actually make you park across the alley on the surface lot, which obviously is always full, and you have to find your way round to the NYNY parking garage, which doesn't even have a way for you to go up by elevators! Not to mention to steaming hot weather! Ugh

No wonder their rooms are so cheap.

However you CAN get really good pix of the CityCenter if you request the right room. Mine was on the 31st facing the pool, which means full view of the construction site.

Here are a couple business news stories talking about what is happening as a result of Dubai World buying half of CityCenter and part of MGM/Mirage.

Another CityCenter construction worker died on the job. Fell 55 feet. This is the fourth fatality on the site so far.

Yeah, this project is developing quite the reputation! The man had a harness on, too.. doesn't help if the harness isn't hooked up to anything though...

A stupendous project

This is really a world class construction project. Please, Las Vegas people, keep us informed how the construction is progressing! What floor has been reached? Is it on schedule? We wanna know!
