As I said in another tread of Las Vegas, this city is awsome, is always looking to build the best hotels in the World, to atract more turists to this wondenful city.

Honestly I've never been in Las Vegas, but people have told me that it's a beutiful city, that you're neve get buried there and I believe it and I hope one day to be there in the capital city of entertainment.

LAS VEGAS

I hadn't been over to the east side of the site yet,
so ventured over there today and hey, there's another wing I didn't even know
was there. Not as wide as the others, but I'm sure it will go as tall.

Guess you found the secret. It was hidden back there but interesting it's there in the first place. You would think the hotel could do without it being that tall but maybe they needed more space.

Good shot of Trump in the background btw. Just wait when there's a second tower. A golden wall.

Just announced! A condo tower will be added to the Palazzo resort, in the front of the lot on the Las Vegas Strip and on the roof above the Barney's department store.

According to the County Agenda the tower will be a modern design with glass curtain-wall and balconies.
Planning Agenda

Story
Las Vegas Sands Adds Condos to Palazzo Plan
By Brian K. Miller
November 10, 2006 10:39ame

LAS VEGAS-Las Vegas Sands Corp. is jumping into the high-rise residential market on the Las Vegas Strip. The publicly held operator of the Venetian Resort and the Sands Expo and Convention Center here received approval today from Clark County to add a condominium tower to plans for its $1.8-billion Palazzo project adjacent to the Venetian.

Rising at the corner of Spring Mountain Road and Las Vegas Boulevard, the Palazzo includes a 3,000-room hotel tower, the 450,000-sf Shops at the Palazzo and an 1,800-seat theater. The addition to the project approved Wednesday is a 632-foot tower to be built atop an already approved building that is slated to house an 85,000-sf Barney’s retail store among other things.

Sands’ original application called for 849 units, but in a conference call last week, Las Vegas Sands EVP Brad Stone said the condominium tower would contain 370 “ultra-luxury” units. At the commission meeting Wednesday, Sands’ said it planned to develop a maximum of 400 units, a county planning source tells GlobeSt.com.

The County Commission’s approval, which is contingent upon a formal development agreement, granted Sands several code variances. Sands received breaks on requirements for parking and for the setback for the upper portions of the tower, according to the county planning source.

Las Vegas Sands is following in the footsteps of MGM Mirage and Donald Trump, both of which have found plenty of takers for their high-rise residential product overlooking the Strip. MGM Mirage has pre-sold all but a small fraction of the 2,900 residential units it is developing in three high-rise towers as part of its $7-billion City Center development adjacent to the MGM Grand, and Trump has sold out his 1,282-unit Trump International Hotel & Tower now under construction behind the New Frontier casino.

I see that they are using steel for the construction. I understand that this is not normal construction in Las Vegas. Elaborate.

Because it took an entire year to excavate the 4,400-space underground parking garage, they figured they could finish the tower faster using steel.

Most mega resort towers here use concrete, but a few others used steel. MGM Grand and Luxor used steel. The other two mega resorts under construction right now, CityCenter and Encore, are using concrete.

There are a couple smaller tower projects downtown using steel.

The standard of Vegas is so high now. Imagine the cost of building a casino there from scratch.

Are there any renderings that include the new residential tower?

This thing is an iron beast, but what pictures can't show you is the noise and smell. Hundreds of workers hammering relentlessly, it's deafening. Being this close to it I could even smell the steel dust coming off of it...

Taken today...
