Paris building Sugar Factory on Strip

Paris is making some changes to the front of the hotel on the Strip. What used to be a fountain is now being transformed into a Sugar Factory store. Sugar Factory is an upscale candy shop. They have locations at Mirage and Planet Hollywood.

This is what it will look like when finished:

The thing that strikes me about this project is the amount of space that will be taken away from the sidewalk. This is a very busy area of the strip and what once was a wide area for walkers to move will now be pretty narrow. Hopefully this spot won't turn into a pedestrian bottleneck similar to the sidewalk in front of Margaritaville.
