Caesars Convention Center Expansion & Pool Area Remodel
- New Construction (Convention Center)
- Remodel/Renovation (Pool Area)
The Caesars Convention Center and Pool Area Remodel was part of a $1 billion expansion of the existing property. The full expansion included a new tower, a second meeting and convention center, a rebuilt pool area, a new poolside cafe, a new wedding garden, as well as a complete remodel of the Forum Tower, Casino front entrance, buffet restaurant, and the Race and Sports Book area.
The expansion of pool area and convention center developed from the rich existing theme currently within the property. While expanding the pools to include a new pool oasis and garden areas, the convention center expansion was seen as the termination point of an axial vista established within the existing design. From the existing Temple and Neptune pools, the added Fortuna, Jupiter, Apollo and Bacchus pool areas all step up to create a hierarchy which lead to the formal façade of the Convention Expansion.
Atop the Bacchus pool level, sit six full Corinthian columns, which frame the view both to and from the pools. These columns balance the weight of the pediment and statues above, complete with the Latin phrase, “Omnia mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis,” meaning, “All things are changing, and we are changing with them.” The key to the success of the design was among the many details that lead back to the Roman theme seen throughout the resort.
