Ah yes, the good 'ol Space Needle. I still remember countless visits to the top of that when I was young. Good times...

I did! Vegas really needs more supertalls. It should be the Dubai of the US, but it is not even close!

Just received a notice from Clark County about the July 17 planning commission meeting regarding the current owners of the Crown Las Vegas site. (Sahara Las Vegas Corp.) They are asking for a use permit to build temporary storage facilities for Fontainebleau. No mention of any other permit requests.

What on Earth could you possibly mean? How could anything "suit" or "not suit" the Las Vegas Strip. It is one of the most diverse areas architecturally in the world. Someone could take a dump on the sidewalk and that would "suit" the strip just as much as the Taj Mahal would.

Just announced, a 124-story hotel tower as part of a casino. Sounds like we'll know more about it shortly.
