MGM Cotai Renderings Revealed

MGM Resorts International released a number of renderings of the upcoming MGM Cotai project to investors.



The design theme builds on the layer cake design of MGM Grand Macau, but arranged into a tower of lucky 8 individual of jewel boxes and one glass atrium between the top two.



The window patterns are fascinating. I'll bet they don't exactly come out this way as meticulously framing the glass in these panes will cost a fortune and take a long long time.



It is a damn shame that MGM doesn't do similar designs for their burgeoning network of casinos in the United States.... Springfield and National Harbor.

Can't wait!

With the U.S. President Barack Obama now re-elected, the eyes of one journalist has turned to the man who funded challenger Mitt Romney's campaign, Sands Chairman Sheldon Adelson.

The U.S.'s National Broadcasting Company raises long lingering questions about Adelson's connection to organized crime, prostitution and other unsavory (?) sins while also indicting Macau via the old Jane Russell flick. Like, the coulda chosen the new James Bond film Skyfall as that has a few unsavory scenes in Macau (as imagined on a London soundstage) as did Roger Moore Bond chestnut The Man with the Golden Gun.
