Here are some steel shots.







I think this is Font steel being staged over at the Kerzner/MGM site.

The most towers in Vegas are resorts. Not special to me this one, Vegas is a nice city but I just don't like the downtown. all of the towers are too wide. they just have to build some slim towers.

The name's just plain ridiculous.

And regarding the design - you'd expect something more striking to be build in Fabuloustown.
A boring tower in Vegas... Damn. That I dare gettin to see something like this, formidable!

400,000 sq feet for the conference center alone and not a clue on the garage which i think will have 7,500 parking spaces.

the day of the storybook castles, pyramids and eiffel towers is at an end in vegas, that was a 1990s thing; expect to see alot more glass towers like planet hollywood, city center, cosmopolitian and the like "if" the financial crisis ends.

ick, not really a fan, looks rather 1980s and shiny. Still, reasonable addition in terms of height I suppose.

Considering that they are working on the 65th floor of what was supposed to be 63 floors, I personally believe that it will be higher than 737 feet. They haven't even started on the crown yet and that alone would put it at 67 floors once complete. Personally I'm kinda excited!!!
