The Venetian Macao Resort, a $2.4 Billion dollar mega-resort in Macau, opens today amidst much fanfare and media hype. The New York Times has posted an excellent article about the Venetian's opening including a slew of numbers that compare the size and breadth of The Venetian Macau to casinos in Las Vegas. Here's some stats extracted from the article done up in Harpers Index style:

The Venetian has:
$2.4B - cost of Venetian alone
14 - number of hotels that will comprise the greater Venetian megalopolis in Cotai
$12B - cost of greater Venetian megalopolis
4x more floor space than the Empire State Building.
3x more casino floor space than the largest Vegas casino (currently MGM Grand, but will be Echelon Place when it opens)
15,000 - number of seats in the Venetian's sports arena (roughly the size of Madison Square Garden)
3 - number of indoor canals with gondoliers and the whole schmear
$140 - introductory room rates
2 - number of NBA exhibition games planned for Venetian's arena
1 - number of Cirque du Soleil shows
1.26 days - length of the average Macau visit
