The shuttered resort continues to lose a bit more of its Moroccan-inspired facade. Greg notes that most of the work appears to focus on the Tangiers tower right now. As he states, "all of the Moroccan-style crenellations have been removed from the roof edges and the windows along the the south stairwell are out." (Crenellations: pointy things on the roof.)
Meanwhile, signage of things to come (The Bazaar, Fred Segal, and more) can now be seen ringing the property's exterior. And, the dome that once towered over Sahara's main entrance has now been completely erased.
For the history lovers, Greg found an old snapshot of The Beatles hanging on a balcony at the Sahara, taken by photographer Curt Gunther.
The year? 1964. Greg says the photo was taken from room 2344. He was able to capture a shot of that same balcony back in 2011:
Sadly, it's not a piece of lost Vegas as it's been completely removed now.
SLS Las Vegas is due to debut in the fall of next year.
