I mentioned in a previous post my tour of the then still-in-progress Venetian Macao (which opened on Tuesday) how massive the building was. I had no idea, but according to this video from the magazine Destination Macau (via editor Jennifer Welker), it is not just the world’s largest casino, but also the world’s second-largest building. Presumably that means by total floor space – 10.5 million square feet, according to the fact sheet they sent me. The largest, if this is still right, is the Boeing factory outside Seattle – not the Pentagon as I had originally believed. Then again, maybe different measurements are being used here – the Boeing article doesn’t mention the factory’s floor area, just its total volume (472 million cubic feet).
