Great, now none of the rooms in the Venetian Tower will have a decent strip view.

I'm not so sure about that. Every room on the west side of the Venetian will still have the same view that they always had of the Mirage volcano directly across the Strip. This tower is not directly in front of the Venetian or the Palazzo, it's in between. But yeah, it's closer to the street so will block their views looking down the strip. But the condos will have unobstructed views down the Strip and command top prices.

I am talking about the rooms in the "Original" Venetian Tower. None of the rooms have a view of the volcano directly to the west. The rooms on the south side of the original tower has one of the worse views in the city because the Venezia was built too close; the view on the north side of the tower will be obstructed by the new Condo tower (outlined in red) and will not be able to see the Pirates lagoon at Treasure Island either.

In terms of providing views, Sheldon Adelson CEO of Sands is not the best in this business. Yeah, you can have great views if you stay in the Venezia, the Palazzo, or the condo if you have truck loads of money.

Hmm, I see what you mean, I thought the Venetian was turned a little more facing the Strip, but it's not.

See that parking garage directly across the street by the pedestrian bridge? Last year MGM was talking about putting a condo tower or boutique hotel right there. That would start to turn the strip into a narrow canyon of buildings.

It's all personal taste. No right nor wrong, so what's yer b33f?

If I didn't know it was being built in Las Vegas, I would've said somewhere like Moscow.

Other than what looks like the same light drilling that's been going on, nothing substantial has been seen over the condo tower site yet. They are in no rush it seems.
