Even More SLS Las Vegas Renderings Unleashed

sbe entertainment is continuing to scramble for cash via the EB-5 visas for cash program in the hopes of funding the transformation of the decrepit, shuttered Sahara into the gleaming SLS Las Vegas.
To this end, they've updated the project website (linked above) with some new renderings and have removed the restaurant / nightclub listings we previously reported on. Ooooops.
SLS from the street... with Katsuya billboard. They've removed the Jose Andres Bazaar and Foxtail signs from the previous version of this.
The porte cochere entrance remains the same as previously. What we will learn is that those blobular columns are a "design thing" that are repeated in various places throughout the resort.
Here's a new rendering... the entry lobby which used to be covered in lightbulbs and Moroccan tile work. It also offers a glimpse into the casino floor. White ceilings with red rectangular accents, brown carpeting with circular patterns, an array of crystal chandeliers and other light fixtures. Looks sorta like a cross between Planet Hollywood and the new Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
The reception desk remains largely the same, in the same configuration... just de-Saharaized. It appears that SLS will be appropriating another Cosmopolitan idea and putting a large video display above reception which will most likely feature artwork and advertisements.
Surprisingly understated, particularly if you have been to the confusing avant-over done clusterfudge that is the SLS Beverly Hills. Looks great.
The pool. New cabanas, new furniture. The big red building there will be the entrance to the Foxtail day/night club thingy... you can see where they photoshopped the logo out.
The projected project looks great... no bones about it. I don't see it competing on the luxury scale, or even just below luxury, but if they can get it financed and get it completed with competitive fit and finish within the boundaries of their budget, I don't see why it won't be gorgeous. Location is still a big sticking point as is the stiff competition from larger operators with a much deeper rolodex.
