Strip Changes In 18 Pics
The Strip of today is not the Strip of tomorrow. And, when we say tomorrow, we don't just mean the near|distant future, we mean tomorrow tomorrow.
On-going construction continues to bring us a slightly different Vegas each day. Last week, we checked up on six different projects, from the tear-down of a never-completed resort to a casino remodel. The 18 photos below, snapped by Greg C. and @paperposter, were captured between August 19 and August 22. So, yeah, expect five of these projects to be slightly more advanced today.
At The Harmon, the latest phase of a year-long demolition brings a crane and black barrier drapes. The condo-hotel never opened due to construction errors.
Caesars Entertainment has been mysteriously mum on this project for sometime now. The outdoor mall is expected to begin opening this fall. A more specific timeline has yet to be announced.
*p.s., someone please water the trees!
We believe construction that's cut into the Strip-facing facade around the dome below is related to the new mega-club that will replace PURE. The still unnamed nightlife venue will debut early 2015.
(soon-to-be The Linq Hotel)
Before The Quad morphs into The Linq Hotel it's getting a
horrifying paint job. Let's hope the new room remodel is much more pleasing. The resort will take on its newest name October 30.
The budget hotel-casino is spending big bucks ($14 mil) to renovate and expand its entire northern flank. Construction will bring back Denny's and add a Walgreens in 2015.
(Casino Floor Improvements)
Harrah's recently completed a remodel of its casino floor. VegasChatter reader @paperposter snapped the below images and reports a revamp of the high-limit room and the opening of a new casino bar, among the many noticeable changes.
