Obviously, the number of floors will have been greatly reduced IF it gets built. But we haven't heard yet a floor number to change it to. Maybe they should put it as ? floors or something.

i think the dude may want to make some money on this project, hence he decided on vegas. i suppose he could build it in la or new york and wait 100 years to get back some of his $5 billion.

My guess is that this tower would be at least 100 floors...

I'm not sure where not going to be looking at a 100 story tower in Vegas. I'm thinking a 85-95 story tower instead. But, Hey I hope I'm wrong I hope it's 100 or more floors. Things seem a little bleek at this point to make any judgements.

That movie was f*cking awesome.

Seeing as Crown is Australian, I really hope they don't give this new casino an 'outback' theme, with Crocodile Dundee impersonators walking about, hourly crocodile wrestling and a memorial to Steve Irwin that's 200ft high.

If I were the developer, i would hold out for 1888ft. no scale downs , no compromise of the height , NOTHING, and keep fighting til I got it. Thats what Bob Stupak did to get the Stratosphere built.

If the Crown Las Vegas gets a reduced height, won't it get a reduced floor count too? (142 floors is WAY too much for a 1150-ft skyscraper) The reduced floor count should be, uh... 100 to 114?

of course they'll reduce it, the title hasn't been changed because we don't know how many floors the new tower will have

In Sunday's paper.

http://www.lvrj.com/business/11182091.html

Quote:
Officials from the proposed Crown Las Vegas project, slated for the former Wet 'n Wild site on the Strip, held meetings with their potential neighbors from Turnberry Towers last week. Developers wanted to alleviate any concerns about the potential height of the 5,000-room resort's hotel tower, now proposed for 142 stories.

The Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing a request from Crown Las Vegas to reduce the planned height of the tower from the initial 1,888 feet to 1,150 feet, one foot taller than the Stratosphere.

Crown Las Vegas officials told Turnberry residents the project could be turned into shorter, dual hotel towers, depending upon the FAA's ruling.
