The Clark County Commissioners Approved a New Hotel-Casino for the Las Vegas Strip
What is now considered the most "Economic Productive Street in America" just got a new Hotel-Casino. Clark County commissioners gave billionaire Tilman Fertitta the green light on Wednesday to develop a Towering Hotel-Casino on the Strip.
The Commission approved Fertitta’s plans for a 43-story, 2,420-room project in the tourist-choked casino corridor. The upscale resort, at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue, would include restaurants, convention space, spa, wedding chapel, auto showroom and a roughly 2,500-seat theater. It would also feature suites and villas, VIP salons, and a bar and lounge for high-limit gamblers, all included in building plans. The resort will feature high-end dining, a 37,000-square-foot spa and fitness center and around 91,000 square feet of convention facilities.
Fertitta acquired 6.2 acres plot of land for $270 million, located between the MGM Grand and Planet Hollywood, across the street from CityCenter. The project site is where a now-closed Travelodge is. The property currently includes the motel’s parking space and a small strip mall.
