I'm not sure if there was a thread for this, don't think so, if there is I'm blind and should make sure I wear my glasses but anyhow!

The expansion at the casino is well underway with formwork starting to go up. I had a feeling when the Aria crane went down we'd be seeing it back up very shortly, I went for a little drive to the store this evening and detoured past the Casino and sure enough, the crane from Aria is sitting there. The mast has been erected with the boom, apex, counterweights and all that fun stuff sitting right outside the site office!...At least we're taking one down and putting another one back up! - I'll have some photos on Saturday or Sunday of the progress/crane on this job unless someone happens by and snaps a few!

Cheers

That's so strange. Three tower cranes are now lining "the strip."

I guess its been long enough to let people know. As of Monday, the casino renovation/expansion has been cancelled, they will finish off the parkade, but thats it.

I wasn't told the reason, but I would suspect it has something to do with finances and the global financial crisis.

Construction is continuing on the parkade as it is only a few weeks from completion, but all work related to the casino itself has stopped with no indication is will restart anytime soon. I can't see them starting a hotel with a casino expansion half completed
