Station Casinos has received approval from Clark County Commission to move forward with its plan to build a 211-room resort hotel and casino in the southwest valley. Station plans to break ground on its new project, which includes an 83,000 square foot casino, early next year and say the resort will focus on gaming, have little competition within five square miles and cater to the area’s growing population. Station Casinos has owned the 71-acre plot of desert land since 2000, but the 2009 recession foiled the company’s plans to start building at that time. A site plan from 2008 showed two hotel towers, a casino, a movie theatre and several retail buildings. Gaming options are few in the area when compared others around the periphery of Las Vegas and Amanda Belarmino, Hospitality Professor at UNLV commented: “Not only will this provide entertainment options, but it will provide new job opportunities to that part of the city as well.”Station Casinos has received approval from Clark County Commission to move forward with its plan to build a 211-room resort hotel and casino in the southwest valley.
