They will probably just push it back again since they don't want to admit that this thing doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of being built at this height.

I agree!
Regular [looking] skyscrapers don't go with Las Vegas right now...

Only thick, wide, hotel/casino/resort buildings do.

I don't know, I think it might actually get reviewed this time. Shortly after the last date, they submitted some new documents and then there was a flurry of news reports about the tower. Nobody would say what the new documents said, but the news reports were talking like as if it was a real possibility of happening, even though they were only reporting the same details they were pessimistic about when it was first proposed last year. Also, the Hilton timeshare across the street has decided to apply for a height increase for their next tower and they say that it will encroach into Nellis airspace.

I just noticed that the thread title has been changed to "1886ft". Why? The proposal states that it will be built to exactly 1888 feet. 1888 was a symbolic number the developer specifically chose. Maybe the moderator saw the meter measurement rounded down and figured it didn't equal the same number of feet. In that case, the thread title should read "... 575.4624m | 1888ft ..."

Apparently the numbers are rounded from meters. The Freedom Tower is listed at 1775 feet, when 1776 is what was really chosen, also symbolically. It doesn't really make any sense.

Hey, they must have read our posts, the title's back to 1888. Now they just need to fix the Freedom Tower thread title back to 1776.
