The mega-company, which includes Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood and Rio, outlined its plans to build an elaborate dining and retail venue on land it owns across the street from Caesars Palace. Its neighbors include the Venetian on the north, Paris to the south, and Caesars and the Mirage across the street. Now occupied by a honky-tonk mishmash of old-school casinos, cheap retail and several outdated hotels, including the Imperial Palace, Flamingo and Harrah's, the tract has always struck me as an eyesore.
