I have already stayed at Wynn before, so I will stay at the Palazzo this winter.

mdiederi any idea on the current floor count of encore? I count 40 floors based on that photo but i cannot make out the number of floors at the bottom below the cladding (i assumed it was four).

Based on the current rate of progress i estimate Encore will be topped in roughly 3 months

Yeah Encore is on 39-40 now, out of 60 I think. I took extensive pics of Encore this week. Here is the link if interested.

Encore is scheduled to be topped out sometime in November.

I have to admitt I would never choose gold as the color of my building, but it probably looks great in vegas and that is what makes this city so unique.

Encore is a nice, rich, dark bronze. most of us hate gold, like Trump, but this is much different.

I love the color it remids me of the red rock of the desert and the curves make it look like one massive cylinder.

In this interview Steve Wynn says it should be topped out in Nevember and the casino interior will be designed after the one in Macau.

Well, the Palazzo is already topped out and the cladding is to the top and they announced they will open in December this year. Encore won't open until December next year.

I was watching a National Geographic special on the building of the Venetian this week. Originally Adelson had given a strict two-year time frame to build the entire complex from ground break on April 14 1997. Of course come the deadline date (April 1999), it wasn't finished or ready to open and the grand-opening had to be put back for one month. When the Venetian did open in early May 1999, half the rooms weren't ready and the shopping mall wasn't completed.

I can see the same thing happening with Palazzo. The thing is barely topped and Adelson is talking about it opening in November/December

I predict February at the earliest for this thing to open

If you go to the Palazzo website and click reservations you can see that it says December 20th.

I don't know, more power to them if they can pull it off...ambitious to say the least.

But don't want to get too far off topic.

Here you go Brian. Sorry about the delay. My office used to be half a mile from the Strip and it was easy to get down there any time to shoot updates. But over Labor Day we moved the office out to Summerlin. The good news (at least for me) is that the new office is half a mile from my residence.
