I can't help but think, with all the push to bring retail and shopping strip side these days, we are seeing the Fuglification (Yes that's a real word I made up) of the Las Vegas strip era. Sure we have guys like Wynn and his team who push new design, and even the Linq is way better than the Carnival Court / IP mess. But look at the other projects under construction. The ever erroding of TI facade, which has become a playbook for bad design, the updates to the Fashion Mall Cloud area a multi-tier turd fest, Bally's Grand Bazzaro Shops , and the Rock in Rio fairgrounds make me think we are going to see the strip evolve into an ugly street side shopping mall with hotels and casinos attached. It's almost as if the planning commision folks will pass anything that looks to increase the tax base.
