According to this Globe Street report, CityCenter is now costing over $11 Billion. I hadn't heard that figure before.

Vdara has their website up www.vdara.com
Nothing really special right now, but I'm sure as the opening gets near it will be more informative.

Me too!

Reminds me of my Lego Building block days as a kid!

I want to see more interior shots of the lounge areas. I want to be a lounge singer in one of those bars!

WOW!!! Great impact on Las Vegas skyline!!! I would love to see Las Vegas to build more modern towers around the Strips than just on Las Vegas Blvd. I know there are some towers outside the Strips but sometime it look like it is lined up along Las Vegas Blvd.

they would if they could encourage large non-gaming corporations to come to town, for now only hotels and condo build high rises in vegas and for the most part those are only built on are very close to the strip because that is what customers/visitors demand
