Honestly, It looks more disgusting rather than interesting.

They did the cladding rather quickly. Here are some older photos from last Christmas :

The exterior looks very kitsch, but once you step inside, the interior looks rather nice.

Can't say I like the design, but it sure as hell is pretty unique.

BTW where did the height figure of 258m come from? So far I've only heard 228m and 240m for this building.

Wow. Cladding already? I saw this 5 months ago and everything was like in hkskyline's photos -- very much unfinished.

A Las Vegas Style building with an Asian Theme. Not exactly a beauty, but not butt ugly either. I praise it for its efforts.

eDit: i haven't been to Macao for about 10 years, it looks very different now.

Yes, different sources give different figures. Don't know which one is official. The figure 258m is from China Radio International Online. As for me, the building looks shorter than 258m.

I love the design. Macau is going to be the Las Vegas of Asia and I can't wait. I've read from BBC that its gambling winnings (or something like that) is higher than that of Las Vegas already.

The casino industry revenues/profits have surpassed that of LV.
