Thanks for starting this thread.

It will probably be a long, long time before the second one gets built.

The red glass is really something special. I wonder how red the light inside those hotel rooms will be. Will the human eye get used to that color after a few minutes and "compensate" the colours? I think if you leave those rooms, everything will appear green and blue for some time.

It's on the south side of the parking garage on the north west corner of E Harmon Ave and Audrie Street.

Cool red glass. It's what really sets this building off.

2nd tower already looks like it's at floor 3-5, according to webcam. It broke ground sometime in May, so its definately rising. The podium is integrated and requires both towers, since the pool is in between the two towers, I don't think the residents will like a dirty construction site on one side! EDIT: I see tower 2 is set back a bit from the pool area, but for the high-end residents I'd still think it's too close for comfort.

Twipsy: The red glass is only for the balconies for some condos, so most of the condos will have normal glass and even most of the area of the condos with the red balconies won't have red light inside.

And rossie, you're right, someone change the thread title to LAS VEGAS | Planet Hollywood Towers | 183m x2 | 600 ft x 2 | 50 fl x2 | T/O | U/C

I messed up the thread title, I'm sorry.

I drove by this morning. There is no work on the second tower, it's just a dirt hole.

Great, this is the 2nd twin tower in LV delayed, and this would be worse than Trump. Trump was designed as one tower, but this won't look complete without the 2nd tower. Oh well, I can wait.

Seems like they're using the 2nd tower area as a staging lot.
