More than a few land-based casino hotel and resorts have relied on larger-than-life iconic statures to draw the betting public’s attention to their real money gambling venue. Las Vegas built itself into the undisputed casino gambling capital of world with its famous Strip that offers any number of oversized statues to attract the masses from the Eiffel Tower to an Egyptian Spynx.
A new casino and resort renovation being built by one of the biggest players in the casino industry has caught some attention both good and bad in the Hollywood region of South Florida, north of Miami. As reported by www.CBSMiami.com as well as the local news affiliate 4 CBS Miami, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino has decided to take its iconic guitar statue to a whole new level in the form of a 450-foot building that is currently under construction.
Why Is The Hard Rock Cafe’s Giant Casino Guitar StrumingBad Chords with Florida Locals?
Hard Rock has always used a large guitar structure as part of the design scheme in its casino properties before, but this latest six-string structure has caught the attention of local residents in light of its overall size that is guaranteed to dominate this part of the Hollywood skyline at its present size.
The guitar tower is part of a complete overhaul of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Some of the negative reactions to the oversized guitar design have called it ugly and there is a genuine concern that its overall massive size could distract drivers going past the property. Many of the initial complaints have been recorded by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, which is mentioned by name in this report.
Hollywood Commissioner Peter Hernandez Feels They Are Cool And Iconic?
At least one local resident has a different point of view. Hollywood Commissioner Peter Hernandez was quoted as calling the new hotel tower, “cool’ and “iconic”. He was actually happy that the giant guitar can be seen from miles away.
Hard Rock has shown little to no sign that it might consider holding back on promoting its latest casino resort offering, which is scheduled to open to the public in the fall of 2019. Preliminary plans call for 12 beams of light projected up into the sky to make the neck of the guitar tower appear to be longer than it already is. If these plans go according to schedule with no outside interference from any local government officials, the beams of light will be able to be seen as far away as Miami Beach to the South and Boca Raton to the north.
