I didn't even notice earlier, but I see in my last picture that they are adding the glass part of the facade now.

I recently discovered where they where keeping the Palazzo model and took shots.

The top of the tower has two unusual greenhouse like glass rooms on each side, I wonder if it's decoration or something else.

Thanks for shooting that.

Not sure what those glass rooms are, but it looks like balconies on both sides of it.

That must be the Barney's store, in the middle photo, that the condo tower will sit on top of. Was wondering if they had a model of the condo tower yet, now we know they don't.

Sheldon Adelson is confident about his Cotai Strip Plan

Growth Potential??

Wynn has a huge parcel of land to expand on, MGM has the city center and many other vacant land to build upon, but Adelson is running out of space to expand.

He seems to expanding VERY QUICKLY in the Asian market where he is building the whole Cotai Strip in Macau and the Marina Sands in Singapore. However, he doesn't seem to have a long-term plan for the Las Vegas property. He should at least be thinking about buying new land if he intends to have continued growth beyond the Palazzo project.

Adelson is a very smart man (and the 3rd richest man in the United States), I am just trying to figure out what his rationale behind this decision is. Does he think there is not much growth potential in Las Vegas in the future?

Any thought?
(I may post this in skyscraperpage to get more opinions)

He must be doing something right, by jumping from 20 something on the richest list to number 3. Incredible.

As for vegas growth, if the potential isn't there, why are projects like $7B CityCenter and $3B Echelon being built?

I'm no business analyst but China with its billion+ population is obviously a lucrative region to open Vegas style casinos in. (as opposed to the smaller ones there in the past).

Maybe he found his new niche, there are already too many players in Vegas right now.

His new Palazzo, for example although a Vegas type megaresort and actually VERY heavily geared Asian gamblers from, yep China. The same ones who go to his Cotai hotels.

Especially the famous high rollers. There are two megasuites in the Palazzo at over 10,000 square feet reserved for these types and the suites have express elevators leading directly to the baccarat pit!

Looks like it will be a massive place, doesn't look too special though.

There's plenty of potential and demand for growth on the strip still IF (and that's a big "if") you have the land. There's no land left for Adelson to expand on the strip after the Palazzo is built ... unless of course Harrah's might want to sell a couple of the older hotels next door to the Venetian.

Well, Harrah's has plans to plan for a new huge project in the center Strip and they've accumulated a lot of property there, but so far there are no real plans. Harrah's, the company, is in the process of being bought and if the new owners pay too much for the company they may be forced to sell some assets i.e., hotels. The Venetian and Harrah's already have a joint project in an employee parking garage they built and share behind Harrah's hotel and the Sands Expo. On the other hand, the new owners of Harrah's will take the company private and that might make it esier to finance a huge new project, which will leave Adelson stuck on his corner with no place to expand on the Strip. Adelson does have a bunch of land behind the Sands Expo across Koval that he can do something on, but it's off the Strip.

Around 600 feet (182 meters) across, maybe a little less, from the edge of the south wing to the edge of the north wing.

So this thing is almost as wide as it is tall. Interesting.
