New Stations resort destined for Vegas

Clark County’s southwest Las Vegas Valley is currently experiencing a boom in growth so it is not surprising that the Clark County Commission recently greenlit plans for the construction of two hotel towers by Stations Casinos. The new project will be located on a 72-acre plot with over 450 rooms, entertainment and dining facilities, and a 93 000 square foot casino.

Construction is expected to commence in 2022 with the first phase set to be completed by the end of that year.

This is far from the only new development changing the local landscape. UnCommons, a $400 million Matter RE Group mixed-use property is currently being built across from Stations’ planned site. This monolithic project includes half a million square feet of office space, eateries, fitness facilities and over 800 residential units.

Also taking shape within the vicinity is a 1300 apartment complex project that is expected to cost around half a billion dollars.

A Site in Waiting

The site of Durango, the proposed new Stations venue, has been approved for a new casino for around 25 years, which made making securing zoning permissions a fairly simple exercise.

The council previously pointed out that the project’s widespread use of water features may be an issue, but as it turned out, the developers had only allocated less than half of the allocated 13 283 square feet to install 5 low-use water features like cascading steps and planters with none of the features exceeding a height of 36 inches.

The property will be situated within a 15-minute car ride of the Las Vegas Strip following the trend of other Stations casinos that focus on serving locals as opposed to attracting tourists.

Stations Casinos is owned by Red Rock Resorts which operates a dozen casinos in the area such as the Red Rocks Resort in Summerlin and Palms.

Red Rock’s full portfolio of land in Las Vegas comprises 315 acres of real estate, including a 57-acre site in Las Vegas and 2 sites in Reno.
