IMAX films futuristic Hyperloop in North Las Vegas for movie about engineers

IMAX moviemakers are filming the futuristic Hyperloop under construction in North Las Vegas.

The revolutionary Hyperloop is designed to transport people and cargo in tube cars at a potential 760 mph — faster than commercial jets — using solar-powered electromagnetic motors.

Futurism supergenius Elon Musk launched Hyperloop with engineers from SpaceX and Tesla. The first successful use of its test tubes came in May. The company hopes to build a full line for cargo by 2019 and for passengers by 2021.

Las Vegas art museum a step closer to reality

Representatives of the city of Las Vegas said last week the city will set aside up to 1.5 acres of city-owned land to be donated for The Art Museum at Symphony Park, fulfilling an agreement signed with backers last year to provide a location if the group raised a million dollars. The museum’s supporters surpassed that target last month, raising more than twice that amount.

“I’m so very excited about the burgeoning community support for a world-class art museum at Symphony Park,” Mayor Carolyn Goodman said. “We will continue to work with the backers and leadership on this project.”

Proponents cheer stadium at event that draws Raiders great Howie Long

Long told the crowd that when the Legislature meets to consider the package for the 65,000-seat domed football stadium it could become a part of history that the Raiders are attempting to make on the field this season. Long said the Raiders, who are now 3-1 with three road victories, invited him to address the team prior to the beginning of the season.

“As I told them this summer, it’s time for (players) Derek Carr, Khalil Mack, for (head coach) Jack Del Rio, for (general manager) Reggie McKenzie, for (owner) Mark Davis and now for the city of Las Vegas potentially to make their own history. It’s hard to put history in perspective when it’s happening and this, to me, is a win-win, it’s a no-brainer.

The proposal to put both the stadium financing and the financing of a $1.4 billion convention center expansion project into one legislative bill puts a new wrinkle in the debate. The convention center expansion, also recommended for approval by the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, appears to have solid backing by legislators. Packaging the projects together could either bolster support for the stadium by convention center backers or torpedo both projects.

Former Las Vegas Mayor Jan Jones Blackhurst, a Caesars Entertainment executive and a leader in the new Win Win Nevada Coalition of gaming, business and community leaders supporting the stadium, noted that jets departing from McCarran International Airport are filled with tourists visiting the city and more would come with the addition of the stadium.

Other speakers supporting the stadium effort included Steve Hill, director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the chairman of the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee that delivered the recommendation for the stadium to Gov. Brian Sandoval; Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, who chairs the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors; Tommy White of Laborers International Union Local 872, a supporter of the stadium project; and UNLV head football coach Tony Sanchez.

If a Las Vegas stadium deal is going to happen, it must happen now

There is no such thing as a perfect timeline.

A year from now, the NFL isn’t going to suddenly lower its desired (insisted) percentage of public funding for a stadium, and any support owners like Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft have gathered for relocating the Raiders to Las Vegas would be tested and dissected daily.

This happens now for Las Vegas, or it doesn’t happen.

“If the (stadium) vote takes place in the next week or so, we can walk into a league meeting (on Oct. 18) in Houston and say, ‘The funding has been approved. There are no contingencies,’” Raiders President Marc Badain said. “We will have a fully financed plan ready to go. It solves the Raiders’ stadium challenges for the league and it opens up a solution for some of the other teams still trying to find a stadium for themselves.

“If you add a whole other year of uncertainty and complexion to it, you never know what could happen. Other markets could open up. We have a real opportunity to close the door on it now and come in with such a compelling offer that everything else would be secondary.

“For us, if we can get this approved and go to the league, we think it’s a slam dunk for the league to look at and say, ‘This is a solution for the Raiders and we will pursue it.’ We believe this is the deal.”

Nevada governor calls special session for Monday to consider Raiders stadium plan

Gov. Brian Sandoval on Wednesday summoned Nevada lawmakers to Carson City early next week for a special legislative session to consider financing for a 65,000-seat football stadium and convention center expansion in Las Vegas.

The session won’t include funding for education saving accounts because of time constraints, though the governor said he will make that a budget priority when the 2017 Legislature convenes in February. But Sandoval next week will call for a “minor adjustment” to the lodging tax to fund a “temporary” solution supporting public education through the next two-year budget cycle to cover potential shortfalls.

Topping the agenda will be a measure to raise Clark County room taxes to finance $750 million of a proposed $1.9 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas, the potential new home of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders and UNLV football team. Included in that bill will be an additional room tax hike to help fund $1.4 billion to expand and improve the Las Vegas Convention Center.

City of Las Vegas renews bid for NFL stadium at Cashman site

As far as the city of Las Vegas is concerned, the battle to bring an NFL stadium to the Cashman Center site isn’t over.

The Las Vegas City Council directed staff Wednesday to continue pursuing options for the roughly 50-acre complex north of downtown that includes the Las Vegas 51s’ aging ballpark and convention space. Planting an NFL stadium or the team’s practice facilities on the plot remains high on the city’s priority list.

The city even worked with a firm to create architectural renderings, showing a football stadium surrounded by an 18-story boutique hotel, soccer arena and entertainment district at the site.

Owner breaks ground on NHL team’s new practice facility
Team name and color scheme will be announced on Nov. 19 in event at Toshiba Plaza on the Strip

The construction helmets didn’t quite fit, but the shovels worked just fine this afternoon as majority team owner Bill Foley and several others gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Las Vegas hockey team’s practice facility at Downtown Summerlin.

Located near Pavilion Center Drive and Griffith Peak Drive, the 120,000-square-foot facility will include two full sheets of ice that will service not only Vegas’ first major professional sports team but also local youth and adult leagues. About 200 people turned out for the event, adding further proof, Foley said, that Vegas is ready for hockey

Digging into economic projections tied to a Raiders move to Las Vegas

In September, the infrastructure committee released a summary of its own economic analysis produced by Jeremy Aguero of Applied Analysis, the go-to local research firm for economic modeling. Aguero arrived at his numbers by taking information from the other reports, tweaking assumptions within them that seemed too presumptive, and using existing information about tourists who come to Las Vegas for special events.

The result: The state-backed economic impact report shows a total economic output of $620 million, as well as $35 million new tax dollars each year. Those projections are based on the stadium hosting 46 events per year and drawing 451,417 new visitors. They do not factor in locals spending money at the stadium or other tourists who would have visited Las Vegas regardless of events at the venue.

Casino chiefs urge Nevada lawmakers to fund proposed Raiders stadium in Las Vegas

Heavy hitters testifying on behalf of the multi-billion dollar projects included Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts Ltd., and Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International.

Wynn urged lawmakers meeting on the first day of a special session to take advantage of a rare opportunity to move Las Vegas forward to the next level.

Former Las Vegas Mayor Jan Jones Blackhurst, representing Caesars, said the projects will help push visitation to Southern Nevada beyond the more than 40 million who came to the region last year.

In another favorable development to the stadium project, the Nevada Taxpayers Association on Monday announced that it had withdrawn its opposition, opting instead to take no position on the proposal.

Nevada Senate passes bill to fund proposed Raiders stadium in Las Vegas

The Nevada Senate on Tuesday amended and passed a bill raising room taxes in Clark County to help fund a football stadium and convention center improvements in Las Vegas.

Senators approved Senate Bill 1 on a vote of 16-5, clearing the 14-vote threshold needed to pass a tax increase. The bill now moves to the Assembly, where a challenge for backers could be a tougher climb.

Tuesday’s action capped the second day of a special session called by Gov. Brian Sandoval to consider the tax hikes and usher in what the Republican governor described as an opportunity to take Las Vegas to a new level as the entertainment capital of the world.

Approval of Las Vegas stadium plan might face bumpy ride in Nevada Assembly

Assembly majority leader Paul Anderson, R-Las Vegas, said late Wednesday that lawmakers were working toward a possible final vote for sometime on Thursday. But when asked if there were enough votes to secure the bill’s passage, Anderson said, “I don’t think I could answer that at this point.”

On Wednesday, the Consumer Technology Association, which owns and produces the Consumer Electronics Show, the largest trade event held annually in Las Vegas, praised the Senate’s step to renovate the convention center.

“This critical investment will help us grow CES … and will allow us to continue to bring hundreds of millions of dollars each year in into the Las Vegas economy even in the interim while the expansion takes place,” Karen Chupka, CES senior vice president, said in a statement.

Segerblom: Lawmakers may kick final decision on Raiders stadium to Clark County Commission

Republican lawmakers might punt a final decision on a $1.9 billion domed stadium to the Clark County Commission if there aren’t enough votes in the Assembly to approve the project outright, a Democratic legislator said Thursday.

Kicking the deciding vote on the financing plan, which would boost the county hotel room tax to partially fund the stadium and upgrades to the Las Vegas Convention Center, would require only a simple majority vote by lawmakers, not the two-thirds supermajority necessary for direct legislative approval of tax increases.

Nevada lawmakers adjourn after marathon session but no vote on Raiders stadium bill

A long-awaited vote on a bill that would increase hotel room taxes to fund a domed stadium and improvements to the Las Vegas Convention Center failed to materialize early Friday morning after a marathon 17-hour Assembly session that saw plenty of controversy.

The Nevada Assembly recessed until 9 a.m. Friday after spending more than an hour hearing new testimony on the financial implications of the stadium project on Southern Nevada road construction. The early morning testimony was hastily arranged late Thursday night after lawmakers learned of a report showing up to $900 million in road projects that could be prioritized as a result of the stadium construction.

After the hearing ended just after 1 a.m., Assembly Majority Leader Paul Anderson, R-Las Vegas, said late news of the report made passage of the stadium proposal more difficult. But he also said the explanation from administration officials answered lawmaker concerns.

Anderson said he expects a vote Friday and said “yes” when he was asked if he expected Senate Bill 1 to pass.

Nevada Senate passes amended Raiders stadium bill; Sandoval to sign Monday

A supermajority of Nevada lawmakers on Friday passed an increase in Clark County’s hotel room tax to help finance a 65,000-seat domed stadium, clearing the path for the relocation of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas.

Senate Bill 1, which was amended to address concerns of some Assembly members, saw final passage when the Senate agreed to the changes early Friday afternoon, capping a weeklong special session.

Gov. Brian Sandoval will sign the bill in Las Vegas on Monday.

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis praises ‘historic day’ in Nevada

An “excited” Davis said he plans to fly to Las Vegas on Monday, when Sandoval is scheduled to sign the stadium bill at a news conference.

“All parties have worked extremely hard to develop and approve this tremendous stadium project that will serve as a proud new home for the entire Raider Nation.”

The next step for Davis is to present Las Vegas’ proposal to other team owners and NFL executives at the league’s fall meeting Tuesday and Wednesday in Houston. The Raiders and San Diego Chargers will update league officials on their respective stadium situations.

Davis said he has no plans for the Raiders to play regular-season games in Las Vegas until the new stadium opens, likely in 2020. He said the Raiders are considering potential training camp sites in the Reno area.
