Inside MGM Grand Macau : Exclusive Photo Feature
Sneaky Peaky Inside MGM Grand Macau's Grande Praca
The excitement is mounting for the December 18, 2007 grand opening of what some insiders are saying will be 'one of the most beautiful resorts ever built' in Macau or otherwise - the MGM Grand Macau. If you haven't taken a look at our earlier MGM Grand Macau construction preview, it might be worth it to take a little detour before diving in here.
We've gotten a hold of a handful of current construction photos of MGM Grand Macau's Grande Praca that we're sure will whet your appetites for the big December day, exclusively on MacauTripping. Enjoy!
The Grande Staircase (facing north)
I can only imagine how wonderful it would feel to saunter down those stairs in a tux with my lady on my arm. Gorgeous, glamerous. That appears to be the under-construction hotel tower of the Royal Arc du Triomphe through the ceiling. It looks like the ceiling mounted lighting cans haven't been pointed quite yet.
The facade above the grand staircase features lucky eight columns of arched window sills, with the top two floors having lucky red shutters. There is no sign that states clearly "casino entrance" but based on our look at the building models, the casino wraps around the east and north sides of the Grande Praca.
