The Lucky Dragon: Part 3

It's so encouraging for me to pop over to the Lucky Dragon job site and to check out the project's progress with each visit. On the day these photos were taken a few weeks ago, I could see that we were down to installing the last few panels of exterior curtain wall. . . .

This hotel used to be the old “Sahara,” at the end of the Strip, (emphasis on old and outdated) — but now boasts a beautiful, modern interior design.  It features glass and mirrors in off-beat, modern ways, with a heavy emphasis throughout the hotel on mirrors and glass in interesting, bold colors.  We had a long list of interior mirrors and glass [...]
