It's Really Official: Imperial Palace is The Quad

No surprise here, as telegraphed by their trademark registrations and the tens of thousands of surveys they invited guests to participate in, the Imperial Palace will be renamed The Quad.
Caesars Inc. pushed out a press release with video and a ginormous rendering of what the exterior of the property will look like when completed.
The disconnect between the sexy O'Sheas replacement, the even-more-boxy-than-before IP pagoda frontage and the barely touched IP towers is a frightening mix, aesthetically.
It appears that this is the version of O'Sheas they have settled on.
As expected, the entire Strip frontage will be closed to pedestrian access... the point is to connect Linq (at Margaritaville) through what was formerly the IP casino floor, right through the new Quad porte cochere to Carnival Court.
And here is the new automobile entrance to IP.... no more getting run over.
On the whole, I'm not surprised by any of this. While we hoped that, and pleaded with, Caesars Entertainment to give the IP a proper brand amped up with attitude and ass kicking ambience, they sorta went college bar with it... on the cheap too.
