LOL.

It would actually be neat to have Las Vegas and Dubai get into a skyscraper war with each other.

Vegas doesn't need any mammoth skyscrapers to compete and even lead the world stage when it comes to entertainment and just getting away from it all.

As someone who's been there before (and has been caught in the LA traffic jams with all the weekend traffic traveling there), it's my stance that Vegas shouldn't even both with this tower. No need.

If they really wanted me to think that, then they wouldn't be proposing this, now would they?

Dubai has nothing to do with this building, so why don't you keep the Dubai Schmubai crap out of this thread, okay?

Last I heard is that it's supposed to be reviewed by the planning commission again in March, so we might know soon.

As long, as it gts design change, it'll be okay. Not to brng up Dubai, but that tower looks like it bengs there. Come on, look at the other supertalls in the US, and this one. The redesigned version should look something like Trump Chicago, or BoA NY.
