New Macau Photos Available - Construction Updates!

Posted by Hunter

Thanks to Brian and everyone else that submitted this to me.

Just a quick post to direct people to some new photos posted at SkyScraper City that cover all the recent construction activity in Macau. Great to see these projects moving along, especially the hotel at the Sands - Sheldy quietly hedging his Cotai bet.

Also, Drambuie Man is back in Macau and will be sharing more photos when he returns - thanks again!

I think the MGM tower itself, really looks sharp. I cannont comment on the rest as its not done enough for me to make a judgement one way or the other, but the photo's of the standard guest rooms look great as well.

From the link above and images at the Venetian's press club, it looks to me like the Venetian Macau was better planned. Although I don't like the shape of the main tower, I do like how there's more space in front to allow for an actual canal! Opposed to the one in Vegas, that does look like a parking lot with a small water hole. Sheldy should have done this in the first place with the origanal, but I don't think that would have been possible. I also found a link that showed a few interior far it's looking good. I wish I could find that link.

Damn no point for me to give you my photos. It seems the other site stole them right out the memory card on my camera. They must have been taken only a couple days apart.

I have to admit that wavy three tone glass on the MGM hotel tower is ABSOLUTLY STUNNING! The problem is everything else seems like a hopeless mess.

What I cannot wait for is the Grand Lisboa's hotel tower opeing. The domed casino at the base is just beatuiful inside and out, I cannot wait to see what it looks like with the huge golden lotus rising out of it (hey I just hit me how absolutly phallic that Grand Lisboa is, and its beging to creep me out).

One of the things I have liked charting the progress of the casinos is the way they seem to be trying to redefine casino archtecture. The whole three/four armed spoked thing along the LV strip is just getting so tired.
