PALAZZO SLATED TO OPEN IN DECEMBER

Las Vegas Sands Corp. announced Wednesday it would open the $1.6 billion Palazzo on Dec. 20.

The 3,068-room resort, under construction next to The Venetian, will open its gaming area, hotel and restaurants, the company said during its second-quarter earnings conference call Wednesday.

The Shoppes at Palazzo, the property's 450,000-square-foot retail space that is anchored by Barneys New York, will open in January. The Palazzo theater, which will feature the Broadway musical "Jersey Boys," is expected to open in the spring.

When completed, The Venetian and Palazzo complex will represent the largest integrated destination resort in the world, with 7,128 hotel rooms and 2.3 million square feet of meeting, convention and exhibition space.

Because the Palazzo is being operated as an extension of The Venetian, Las Vegas Sands President Bill Weidner said, the company expected to obtain back-of-house and other operating savings of between $40 million and $60 million for the combined complex.

"The resort is designed to appeal to our important high-end Asian customer," Weidner said.

The Palazzo will be the first new resort to open on the Strip since the April 2005 opening of Wynn Las Vegas.

Some of those figures are astonishing.

...and as early as December? For such a huge project, I bet they'll be opening sections in stages. Soooo many rooms to fitout.

Thanks for posting

Yeah I too have stayed in at the Mandalay Bay, and I have to say it's a great hotel and the facilities are fantastic. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and great value. The pool and aquatic centre is wonderful, overall a ******* awesome place to stay. IMO, It's still the best looking hotel in vegas too, with Wynns a close second.

Generally though american hotels are much lower-grade than what we have in Australia and through Asia, where the hotels seem to have better in-room facilities.

That almost looks, no, it does look like the best computer rendering I've ever seen. So clean, it doesn't look real- but, that's how it looks! I was wondering how it was to be topped out, it looked ridiculous for the longest time. Now, I understand.

It looks like a rendering
At first I really though it was a render. That's amazing

Damn I was at that mall of the Venetian a couple of weeks ago, and I didn't see the top so I thought the Palazzo was just a part of the Venetian and was already open! Now I know

Nice. Still reminds me of many residential projects in Moscow (which I like).

Majestic.
