I can't wait to see a render. Hopefully that doesn't take a year as well.

Just think... The Crown tower/s will be built around the same time as MGM starts on the S/W corner of Sahara/LV Blvd!!!

The North Strip is going to be an amazing place to be at the begining of the next decade!!!

I don't think it's going to take that long. During the hearing they said it was costing $70,000 a day in interest while they were waiting for the FAA, so I think they are anxious to get going and that's why they aren't going to waste more time appealing the FAA decision. And I think they'll start before Kerzner/MGM starts across the street.

And I think this tower would be built faster than other towers in the US... Just look at the City Center, Palazzo, Fontaneibleu??? etc,...

Useless Crown facts: When the original Crown opened in Melbourne in 1997, it was the most expensive building in Australia, even more expensive than Parliament House.

They're busy expanding their complex in Melbourne too, the third hotel tower in the complex is under construction and it's planned to be the biggest hotel in the country.

But hey, they're ******* rich.

Some more useless Crown info. Yesterday they bought 100% of Cannery Casino Resorts, for $1.8 billion in cash. The acquisition includes the Cannery in North Las Vegas and the $250 million Eastside Cannery, which is being built to replace the Nevada Palace on Boulder Highway. Cannery also manages the Rampart Casino in the JW Marriott in Summerlin. They also own a temporary casino next to the Meadows Racetrack outside Pittsburgh. The company is building a $155 million permanent facility at the racetrack. The Cannary was 58% owned by Bill Paulos and William Wortman. Paulos worked for Kerry Packer in the 1990s, and was in charge of the Crown Melbourne when it opened. Paulos and Wortman will stay with the company for at least two years. So it seems these are people Packer already knows and it's his way of getting some experienced Las Vegas management on his team so he'll be ready for the bigger projects on the Strip. And also this way he will be licensed in Nevada way before the Strip properties are finished.

Yeah, that's not good. Seems the long drawn out fight with the FAA wasn't worth it. They should have adjusted their height earlier when credit was still available. Now it's too late to get the construction loan, or maybe at the minimum it might cause a year or two delay before financing becomes realistic again.
