November 2007 LV Strip Construction Photos Posted

Posted by Hunter

I've posted my Las Vegas Strip construction photos: Most Recent Las Vegas Photos

All sorts of great stuff including Encore's high and low rise buildings, WLV's villa atrium, Palazzo, the white tiger pit at The Mirage, City Center, P-Ho, Bellagio, and more.

The link above should show them all but you can also visit the November 2007 tag. Also, based on some feedback I plan to add new searching and sorting capabilities to the photo database soon.

What a fantastic update! You hit on all the things I wanted to see.

Those Encore shots, especially of the low rise, are spectacular. I must say, I followed your construction pics of WLV year ago and you've improved tremendously. It looks like you practically handed your camera to construction workers to take some shots.

Speaking of WLV, the atrium looks great. With even more glass mosaics, I wonder if they finally solved the issue of them chipping off. Also, do you know if that little lounge off the atrium where you wait for a taxi/limo got the mosaic treatment too or are they still stuck with the original carpet?

Thanks Mike!

As far as the carpet in the anteroom, it remains, yes. The tiles are only in the actual villa atrium.

I like your pics of the hanging lightshades in Blush. Didn't know they did that rainbow effect. Perhaps you also noticed the sign outside, in the casino, which "blushes" to a deep red once a minute.

Among the pics I have yet to send is a video clip of some of the fixtures pulsating to the beat of the music in the club (ultralounge, whatever), and also the Blush sign "blushing."

Thanks for the P Ho pics. It's a bizarre change. The street level facade is turning out to be kind of frenetic which was obviously the point. It reminds me of a contemporary and less gaudy version of Harrah's. I think it works. Sort of in the same way that a Quentin Tarantino movie is oddly fascinating. Wouldn't want every movie to be like his but one out of many makes for a nice change.

You're willing to get those kinds of pictures that I'm too scared to get lest I get shoo'ed away by a man in a uniform.

Should I bother with sending you my own pictures from yesterday? I've got Company at Luxor, the new bar at NYNY, etc.

Heh, I like climbing over stuff and I'm not really very scared of security guards. Worst case I play the confused tourist bit and be on my way.

Anyway, yeah, I'm prepping your Strip Walk for later today-ish. Thx.
