In a city where mega resorts rule the landscape, never has a property done so much with so little.  4.4 acres is all the land that Cosmopolitan resides on.  Granted, it cost as much as a mega resort with a 3.9 billion dollar price tag but still.  Its clear the future of the strip is in properties like this and Cromwell, boutique hotels doing more with less.  @maverickheli captures the property in ways only it can.  Seriously need to get off our ass and take a helicopter ride around the city

It was really inevitable.  How can the city claim to be the entertainment capital of the world and not have sports in the list of available options?  We are halfway there with the addition of the hocky and football.  Just basketball and baseball to go to complete the collection so many cities around the states have.  When and where is still up for debate but close to the strip is a solid bet.  @Maverickheli highlights sports addition to the famous skyline.  Las Vegas is finally becoming what it has coveted for so long, respect as a legit big city.
