Faux Finishes Taking Shape at Caesars Forum Shops Expansion


 

KHS&S is creating highly stylized faux marble finishes and more than 7,000 ornamental elements for the Phase III expansion of The Forum Shops, Simon Properties highly acclaimed retail development located at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. Once the expansion is complete, shoppers can walk through the Roman street scenes in the original shopping areas, then enter a breathtaking view of an ancient Roman palace in phase III. "The level of faux finishes in the project, and the artistic processes we used to create the finishes are remarkable," says Phil Cherne, KHS&S senior vice president. "We worked closely with the designer to create the right look, color and feel for the finishes. The final result is very important to the overall look of the project. It brings a real richness to the environment." The project is expected to be complete in August 2004. Perini Building Company is the general contractor.

A complete overview of the project and KHS&S' work is available in the February cover story of Casino Enterprise Management magazine.
