LAS VEGAS - UNLV Football Stadium (40,000)

Developers laid out plans today for a 150-acre master-planned development near the UNLV campus that would include retail space and residential housing, with a 40,000-seat domed stadium as its centerpiece.

The proposed domed stadium would evolve around a movable seating sections concept, like one used in Japan at the Saitama Super Arena.

Silverton Casino Lodge president Craig Cavileer said the stadium would have 40,000 seats to accommodate UNLV football games, with seating of about 20,000 for UNLV basketball games and other events such as concerts, soccer, boxing and bullriding. It would have the option of seating as few as 7,500 people.

Pics here.



Edit: Also can a mod rename the city name to LAS VEGAS in the title? How embarrassing.

Looks really cool. When I was in Vegas this summer I saw the rendering and walled off area for that other arena on the strip. Are those plans scrapped or still there aimed at stealing an NBA team?

This is a huge, complicated and expensive looking project. And they already waffled when asked for a cost, saying that it is "far too early" to put on a price tag. To me that is male cow droppings.

San Jose State has trouble drawing the minimum average for whatever they are calling Division 1-A nowadays.

The developers gave no timetable and no cost estimates for this.

To me that means that that they are attempting to elude the city/county who shot down arena plans in June 2010 since they asked for public money and they are going directly to the state.

The state will conduct public meetings on the state budget and possible education cuts this Saturday.

And now they want "a private/public partnership". OK

Last June, the three separate arena projects went to the city asking for public financing or tax breaks of some sort. The city council told them all that no public funds or rezoning for tax breaks would be given.

In this "Proposed" section there is the story under one of the potential facilities...Silver State Arena

If the UNLV On-Campus Football Stadium is built, what will be done to Sam Boyd stadium, Demolition?

Silver State. That's the one. There was a hole section of land fenced of with Silver State and the arena's rendering all over it as if it was under construction or about to be built.

Here's another proposed Las Vegas stadium project. This one is a proposed arena, baseball park and stadium all on the same plot of land behind Mandalay Bay.

I wish Vegas would get a 60k stadium so they could play the Pac-12 Championship Game there. It wouldn't be smart since it would be empty 99% of the time, but it'd be awesome for that event.

Trust me: a Vegas venue wouldn't sit empty, especially if they landed an NFL franchise and/or utilized it for concerts, championship boxing/MMA events, Wrestlemania, and the like.
