Well, I count 46 and a half floors from the ground in those pictures. In a recent interview Steve said it would be officially topped out in November.

I think 58-60 is the final count of floors.

They are working on floor 47 as far as i can make out from the photos; that probably means there are only 3 floors of the hotel left (plus the top piece)

Wynn is 48 floors so I doubt Encore will be more than 2 floors higher.

The 60 floor thing will be less 10 floors (not sure which level they completely miss out for Asian superstition purposes)

Rossie - Encore is listed as 631' with the Las Vegas Planning Commission. If you figure 10' per floor, and the extra heigth for the top area for the signage, you get about 60 floors. I am aware Wynn does not number floors with 40's due to asian superstition, but from what I understand, and my studying seems to prove, shows that Encore will indeed be 10 floors taller than Wynn. Steve Wynn stated last time he spoke, that Encore would be topped off in November, and if you have kept track of how fast they are moving, that also proves then can't be 3 floors from the top. If that were the case, it would be topped off, in just a few weeks, as they are adding a floor every 5 days or so. We shall see I suppose.

This is a photo posted by Kirre over at SSP taken on Saturday, i still think there is another four MAIN floors to go and then the top piece which isn't added to the overall floor count i guess (at least not in Wynn's case anyway)

Superstitious bull caused the new Encore tower to decrease from 61 to 51 floors.

I think not. VT&T is showing Encore currently at 54 floors and counting.

Damn. That's a sweet picture. I don't understand those who don't like the look of this building. To each his own, I suppose. I think they look fantastic when the sun hits them.

Now that you mention it, I don't see any new pillars on top either, though usually they start a new floor from the far end, and it's hard to see from this angle. Need to find a recent photo from a different angle to see if more floors are starting.

Final count 53 floors. Swoop (crown) in progress.
Maybe this time there will be something (club, restaurant) in the swoop. Based on the elevator core rising to the top of the swoop area, I think a venue is possible.

Once I was told, the chef of Tableau, would move to Encore to open a Steakhouse that would be on the top floor. Its hard to say, we'll know in a year!
