Only two tower cranes so far. These towers are really wide, so I think they'll need more cranes than that.

Shot these. The big hole in front will be the underground parking for the Cosmopolitan, a completely different property being developed at the same time. The actual foundation for the Pelli towers is only 12 feet deep!

I never heard that, but they did knock down the Boardwalk. Currently, MGM is busy squishing rumors about imploding the Excalibur. Monte Carlo is much nicer than Excalibur on the inside.

Breadth of the main tower facing the strip with a large hole being dug in front for underground parking below the retail area.


Corner of the main tower.


Vdara will go here, right next to the hole where the Cosmopolitan will be.

When I drove by today I noticed a third tower crane being erected on the main tower.

Also, there is now a model in the Bellagio, near the conservatory, but they wouldn't let me take photos of it.

When I drove by today I noticed they had installed a fourth tower crane. This one is a different type than the others.

That's an older model, but "Sobella" is the name of the mall complex in front.

That's the "Lifestlye" by Foster.

BTW I previously checked the Foster & Partners' site b4 posting this and nothing on Lifestyle nor aka The Harmon - one of the same.

Also thanks indeed for the PDF site you also posted! Great work all round there mate

Yeah, I had read something in the newspaper that one of the residential towers would be called "The Harmon" and will have a pool on the roof, and Harmon Road does run right through the development, but couldn't figure out which tower they were talking about. There are like three or four more future residential towers planned in the back of the lot. Have to snoop around some more and clearify the name for the Foster tower.

Shot some more progress photos on my lunch break today.

The main Pelli tower


Sobella, Mandarin and Foster dirt


Vdara dirt

This project looks amazing, Las Vegas always build the best, not for nothing is the entertaiment capital, because visiting the city is like visiting the world in one trip.
