hopefully this sets a new standard as far as buildings interacting with the streets. the problem with too many of vegas' buildings is that thy are uninviting from street-level...hopefull this changes things.

Cosmo Podium Glass Facade Prototype

Hi everyone,

Just received the Cosmo newsletter for May 2007

In it they reveal the glass facade for the 100 foot podium:

Nice Piece Of Glass

A 14,000-mile trip, just to look at some glass? Not just any glass of course. Attention to detail and the absolute finest materials are what discerning individuals like you demand in a residence. That's why Ian Bruce Eichner led a group from Perini Building Company (General Contractor for The Cosmopolitan) on a trip to Shenzen, China to examine the prototype of The Cosmopolitan's glass facade. Everyone was thrilled with the result. Customized to our exacting standards by Far East Glass, the facade is sleek, modern and striking. The dramatic contours of the glass have never been seen before in Las Vegas. Veering out and over the Strip, it acts as a translucent canopy. Innovative. Thought-provoking. Utterly unique.



Cheers,
Kevin L.

Thanks for posting that cosmo2k9.

The glass itself doesn't look very unique, but the angles of the framing are certainly different.

It tooks ages for it get get above the pit but now it's humming away just like CityCenter next to it.

I heard swimmers at the nearby Jockey Club pool get a rather up and personal view of the action, with steel beams going up only tens of feet away.

Here's the core for the east tower. I think they call it the Beach tower.

Great Pictures

Thank you for the update Mark!

I'm imagining when the podium section of the Cosmo is complete it may very well be the tallest one on the Strip perhaps rivaled by only the Fontainebleau!

I was wondering if you will be starting a Planet Hollywood / Westgate Towers thread soon or if one already exists?

Cheers,
Kevin
