Venetian: Il Gran Ristrutturazione

Perhaps some of you remember the confidential Venetian Renovation documents that were accidentally posted to their website? Well they've been making good on their promises to completely transform ingress/egress points from urine soaked concrete corridors to elegant extensions of the Q-Bert hallway.

VT super duper pal Jake Z sent us some pix of the exterior work:

Here's a fact that has never been published, the St. Regis tower podium was originally planned to be an exclusive shopping dining district for St. Regis residents and Venetian/Palazzo high rollers. The name the almost settled on calling it was "The Common Good." Marketing plans were drawn up, logos created, the whole schmear.... until LVS top brass gave it the kibosh. Very interesting name.

Good for Venetian for doing this. I've always walked into those tunnel ways and felt like I was heading taking steps towards my personal demise, not a lavish Las Vegas casino resort. They also plan on installing new signage up and down the exterior of these buildings, some of which will have audio components. No word yet on estimated arrival of Aquassage, oxygen bars or stands selling blended ice booze in the shape of St. Mark's Campanile.

That was fast. When I was there last week, none of the scaffolding was up but they had already started construction in the outside plaza and inside.

Forgive me if I am wrong, but isn't this the third or forth time they have redone the interior of the entrance?

"The Common Good". I guess they were going for irony, and missing.

What exactly was supposed to be good about the Common Good? The name doesn't seem to match what was planned for the space.

This is the same place that has a huge Walgreens nearby that was sorta designed to go with the rest of the property...have to agree with trying to get into the place..just kinda creepy in spots, this should work much better..
