Is This The Beginning of the Aria Marquee?

We've received numerous reports over the last few weeks that a section of the walkway outside of The Crystals has been torn up and there appears to be some major excavation going on.

The Admiral stopped by yesterday and sent us a bunch of photos of the construction work, leading him to believe that this construction for the long-planned Strip-side Aria marquee.



This isn't pylon driving per se, but it is most definitely serious fortification of the retaining wall between the Strip and the sidewalk. After the walls are strengthened, the post holes will be augured, pylons driven, posts attached and the marquee will rise to the sky... a full four years after the property opened!



We are still awaiting confirmation of this from ARIA representatives.

With a hole that deep, they're either working on city utilities through the easement/allowance of MGM, or their laying a footing. My gamble is on the latter, although it would be interesting to see how a base parallel to the street will support a sign that would naturally be perpendicular.

That was my first thought that it would be parallel facing the street.

It matches the location on the plans perfectly.

plans? c'mon man.

are these the same plans that included the harmon being open bu now?

Putting the exclamation point on the most visually annoying intersection in the world.

Um, Aria opened in December 2009?

^ Yup. Time flies doesn't it?

Oh. Well, I guess I'm pointing out the error in this sentence:

"After the walls are strengthened, the post holes will be augured, pylons driven, posts attached and the marquee will rise to the sky... a full four years after the property opened!"

the intersection is going to be unusualy brightnd hasn't eveyone found out that aria is a already there? i was getting groceries and a magazine had an ad for aria and i knew it before i opened the magazine since i saw the pic.
