MGM Resorts have been forced into denying reports that they planned to scrap the famous Bellagio fountains to make way for a shopping centre.
The fountains are one of the most iconic attractions in Las Vegas, attracting millions of visitors every year to the dramatic displays.
But according to a new report by The Las Vegas Review Journal, MGM Resorts which owns the site has been discussing whether to transform the 8.5 acres into shops and restaurants.
The fountains are incredibly popular with tourists, who can be found crowding the railings in front of the lake from morning until midnight, but they don't make any money.
With the lake taking up prime real estate on the Las Vegas strip though, it is unsurprising that talks could have taken place regarding its future.
The Review Journal reported that "preliminary discussions have been held among top MGM Resort execs for the 22 million-gallon Bellagio Fountains to be drained and replaced with a boutique shopping and restaurant promenade." However, it appears that if the talks did take place, nothing came of them.
MGM Resorts have released a statement saying: "We have no plans or intention to eliminate the iconic Bellagio Fountains, one of the most identifiable tourism landmarks in the world." Steve Wynn's MGM Resorts is in the process of transforming land outside some of its biggest Vegas resorts though.
Just last month, execs have permission for a $1.5 billion (£1.156 billion) lagoon theme park on a 130-acre golf course property that they own.
