Uhhhh... huh?

It seems an Israeli company wants to build what would be the world's largest hotel in Las Vegas, just next to the Hard Rock on Harmon.

The hotel would have 6,745 rooms and include a casino.

Yet another project slated for this piece of and that will probably never happen. Perhaps this land is home to an ancient burial site?

Meanwhile, I'd like a pony. I've got a feeling that I'm more likely to get my wish than this company is.

Isn't the Venetian/Palazzo considered one property with over 7,000 rooms?

It's a 7,000 room complex, not a single hotel. For hotel room count purposes, it's a single hotel... though you will hear them refer to them as a 'complex'.

The Edge will have four hotel towers, and First World Hotel has more than one tower (and also has the world's worst paint job).

Just to make sure that we're all working on the same level of reality here, I am going to take this moment to announce that I am building a Space Elevator to the Moon.

It's going to happen on the same day as this project!

On the AFI Group website it says that it will be built in phases, not all at once. So they're not totally crazy. They're a big company with big buildings all over the world, but they did report a loss in the first three quarters of '08, so you have to wonder what they are thinking with the timing of this announcement. If they want to resell the land it will be worth more with entitlements. The W and Las Ramblas entitlements have expired.

Mke, I'd like to invest in your Lunar Elevation System. As soon as my investment in this Hotel/Casino pays off, I'll be in contact. Don't bother to give me your email, I'll contact you via mental telepathy.

Put me down for some shares in Mike's LES, too. The R-J story details various belt-tightening measures that AFI is currently making, so they're sending a very mixed signal, to say the least. However, it could only help the supersized Hard Rock if it had some company out there instead of being all by its lonesome.

I guess it could make sense. Start buliding it now so the hotel will be done and ready to go when Las Vegas is booming again.
