Why is this thread so dead? What happened to other non casino projects that might have kept this thread alive?
Or is it that there is absolutely nothing new going on there? What went wrong?
I remember this thread three years ago and was buzzing with so much activity even if there were cancellations.

Can you say "Dead dead DEAD"?!!!

ALL of the architecture firms are IMPLODING - most of the firms that are still standing have only 2 or 4 persons left. Even the firm where I was a Senior Architect at is down from over 160 persons to just under 10 or less now.

There is absolutely NO work here at all - even the Fountainbleu and Echelon were started - and were stopped.

Fountainbleu had a couple storys to enclose near the top with their curtain wall, and it still stands open with all sorts of infiltration of birds and other flying rodents - they only "restarted" to close off the elevator shafts so no further water damage would occur - and that one's 61 or 62 stories. They spent a couple BILLION dollars on it so far, and they will have to spend that much in YESTERDAY'S dollars to finish the whole interior - so it's just a big shell. The new owner says he plans to mothball it for a LEAST TEN YEARS till he can justify it - he got it at a bankruptcy auction.

Echelon managed to get to the first couple floors of raw steel and then stopped - so now we have this nice pile of rusting steel right next to Desert Inn super arterial that crosses the Strip - nice visual. They did manage to enclose the mechanical building so the brand new newly installed AC equipment, etc. wouldn't be totally trashed if and when they restart.

All the casinos have been bought out over the years so now there are only a couple very large casino owners - and NONE of them are doing even any remedial/upkeep work - it's that bad here...

There is a rumour that because of problems with its concrete skeleton, The Harmon (of Project CityCenter) will have to be dismantled. If I had a plan to replace that tower, I would propose a 30-storey boutique hotel with 500 rooms and a steel skeleton. Norman Foster will be angered if he found out about what is wrong with the Harmon.

Just tear the Harmon Hotel down and rebuild it exactly as it should have been the right way. No implosion needed since there are many good-looking structures that will be damaged if this happens. I said this because many architecture critics would hate to see a building designed by Norman Foster to be dismantled before its time.

Abortion in Vegas. It is like a fetus being pried out of its mother's stomach just two weeks before its birth.
