I think what's weird about the timing of the closure is they are closing right before what surely would have been a huge two weekends for them with Rock in Rio going on.

And of course Mayweather vs Pacquiao.

I booked a room for the last night of operation, I would have kicked myself if I didn't do it.

It won't, LVCVA (Las Vegas Visitors Convention Visitors Authority) purchased the property to expand the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Would be nice if they imploded Fontainbleu to collapse on the Riviera, that would be a site to see and a great way to get rid of the biggest eyesore in our city's history.

*IF* Resorts World actually opens, the Rock in Rio festival site can get more shows besides just the Rock in Rio one, and SLS somehow manages to survive...I think someone will finally buy that eyesore.

They need some good anchor down at that end to draw in the people. As it is now people won't go past The Wynn.

^Definitely. The expanded convention center will be a good start to help draw business travelers that way, and if MGM is able to keep their new festival site booked with more big shows...that's a solid foundation. Resorts World could be the anchor, since SLS has been floundering.

Resorts World sounds promising. They need a destination resort and SLS was not it down at that end.

Also possibly coming in the next five years is a project from Crown Resorts run by the former COO of Wynn (who also happens to be Steve Wynn's nephew).
