According to this RJ story the 12/31 soft opening date isn't a sure thing. They haven't been issued occupancy certificates yet for any part of the building, including the casino. Still fire testing. But the 40/40/ Club says it is planning on opening Sunday night.

Great shots, Hunter! Are you in town?

I went to the Venetian today and went over to the entrance where it connects to the Palazzo and the guard told me that the Palazzo will open on Sunday at 6 p.m.

This is the first new resort on the Strip in quite awhile.

In this rendering, the condo tower looks like it won't provide much of a stark contrast to the hotel towers. Will the tower's facade be all glass?

The interior look pretty snazzy, and looks like another great completed Vegas resort. Can a mod please change the status to LAS VEGAS | The Palazzo | 642 ft | 53 fl | 500 ft | 50 fl | Com | U/C (to include the u/c condo tower)?

I was, briefly. Unfortunately I missed the opening, which really bums me out. Great shots, I see they are appearing on other sites as well.

I was wondering if we should start a new thread for the condo tower or just continue this one. May as well just keep posting here.

But why only 500 feet for the condo tower? The official planning commission agenda sheet says 632 feet (and it doesn't say how many floors).

VTaT says it's 50 floors (on the palazzo page, in the construction stats, it says its 43 floors) so then its probably 50 floors and 632 feet.

Las Vegas Sands Corporation has been presenting their future expansion plans and vision for Las Vegas.

The vision is of a third resort connected to both the Venetian and Palazzo. It will go on the site of the present Sands Expo center (green area on site map). First they have to build a new Expo center (yellow area on site map) east of the Wynn employee parking garage. I think the new Expo Center is already approved and it will have over 2 million sq. feet of exhibit space. They also have approval for a skywalk for the public to get to the new Expo, but it will have to go over or under the Wynn employee skywalk, so it will be interesting to see how they configure that.

New Resort with possibly 4,000-7,000 more hotel or condo keys.

Here's a new render for the LVS's Palazzo condo tower that is under construction now.


And it's sky lobby balcony.

I think this is because it has lots of below grade space. To think about it, the whole New WTC must have something like 20MSF of total space.

Vegas needs to be buildings taller and I am sure it will happen soon.

thats if FT ever gets built of course

i can't see 1000-1500 foot hotels rising up along the mid and south strip as long as McCarran is there, it took them over a year to get permission to build Crown at 1064 feet and that sits OUTSIDE the FAA zone.

The problem with hotels that tall is safety and of course fire-risk, for now the next generation of vegas strip hotels will be between 600-800 feet just as the previous generation (mirage, treasure island, monte carlo, luxor, excalibur etc) were between 300-500 feet.
