While you stand around, like us, taking photographs of the escalator for your scrapbook, face the opposite direction and admire the Aria Pylon. Oh, weíre big fans. We canít stop writing about it. And, the 54-feet-wide, 260-feet-tall vertical advertising sign advances ever skyward. Itís so big, people walking under it don't even seem to notice. Wait 'til they turn on the 150-foot-tall digital screen. Theyíll notice.
And, over at CityCenter, youíll notice the occasional fussing of construction around the edges. Itís part of a series of improvements to the Casino Center Drive area, including attention to the planters, lighting and drainage. Itíll cost about $700,000. They could have almost bought an escalator.
One visual improvement in the area is the removal of the rather bland Aria sign on the south-facing side of Crystals. The Aria pylon will be doing the job of advertising in this area in the future. Way back in June of last year, we heard about this change so here's proof things move slowly at Crystals. We believe it to be that a fancy Dolce & Gabbana sign will replace it, if you are taking notes at home. Another future photo for your scrapbook.
