The Lucky Dragon Is Roaring!

Construction at Lucky Dragon is roaring.

Since topping out the hotel tower at amazing speed and finishing the parking garage, Penta Building Group (Las Vegas Arena, Grand Bazaar Shops, SLS Las Vegas) have turned their focus to the hotel tower interiors.

It appears that Penta have brought a pallet of interior materials required to build each room (drywall, aluminum stud framing etc) and placed them on the floor inside of where the rooms walls will be built. A mise-en-place of construction!

Teams of framing workers have been racing through each floor, setting up the aluminum stud framing for every room. They appear to be at the mid-way point of completing the Lucky Dragon's hotel tower room skeletons.

I would imagine shortly after the framing is complete, electrical and plumbing work will be roughed in and then the curtain wall glass will start to be attached. Once the curtain wall goes up the stacks of drywall (you can see the labels on the spine) will be next to go up. They are making quick work of Lucky Dragon. Incredible!

You can barely see it, but the first bits of foundation work for the casino floor (the dirt between this rooftop and the hotel tower) is also starting to be dug up and moved around on the East side of the parcel.

Amazing progress on the Lucky Dragon!

Big huge thanks to VT reader and VIMFPer @dunebug81 for the Tweet tip!

Wow, they are moving fast. Will they open early?

One of the most distressed neighborhoods in the urban core does not seem like a place for a new shiny casino.

On the other hand, $135 million won't buy you much luxury, either. I'd expect Downtown Grand South.
