Raiders owner Mark Davis remains ‘committed to Las Vegas’

Raiders owner Mark Davis said he remains “committed to Las Vegas” and is not swayed by Oakland’s attempts to prevent the NFL franchise from relocating.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said Tuesday the city has agreed on the framework for a new stadium plan. However, Davis said the Raiders are not part of that agreement.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Oakland City Pro Football Group LLC, a team of investors led by former NFL star Ronnie Lott, met in a closed session with the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to discuss terms for selling or leasing the Oakland Coliseum, the home of the Raiders. Details of the plan, which were not made public, are expected to be presented to the Oakland City Council next week.

Las Vegas venues would add oomph to Northern Nevada bid for Winter Olympics

“We believe that Lake Tahoe will be the site of the next Winter Olympics in the U.S.,” said former Nevada Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki, who has been leading the effort to bring the games to the state for more than a decade as chairman of the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition. “It is our goal and our hope. But it is complicated.”

Nevada’s opportunity to host a Winter Games — perhaps as soon as 2026 — has been enhanced by the opening of T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, soon to be home of the city’s new National Hockey League franchise, as well a potential new 65,000-seat domed stadium in the city.

More than one facility would be needed for the men’s and women’s Olympic hockey tournaments, so Orleans Arena and the MGM Grand Garden also could be viable venues, Killoran said.

South Point owner Gaughan buys additional land surrounding hotel

Property records indicate that Gaughan bought 29.4 acres near South Point for $17.1 million since early last year. His most recent purchase closed Oct. 31 and was a steep discount from what prior owners paid during the real estate bubble a decade ago.

Altogether, Gaughan’s new parcels form an L-shape of sorts that extends south of the casino-resort along Interstate 15. Clark County commissioners in March approved plans for an outdoor, equestrian staging area for South Point – which has a 4,600-seat equestrian arena and hosts bull-riding contests, horse shows and other events – and a new 28,800-square-foot maintenance building with carpentry and auto-repair shops.

It seems unlikely that hotel guests would notice the project. But it’s yet another expansion effort by Gaughan, who in the past eight years has added, among other things, casino space, bowling lanes and a third hotel tower to South Point, located at 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South, some six miles south of the Strip.

Host of projects being planned or built right now will change landscape of Las Vegas Strip

There are major projects — the kind that was the norm on the Strip until the recession hit — planned for Las Vegas Boulevard.

They are Resorts World, being developed on the former Echelon site by Genting Americas; Alon, being developed across from the Wynn by a group of developers; and Paradise Park, a Wynn project planned for the golf course behind the Encore and Wynn Las Vegas.

Of the three, the mega-sized Asian-themed Resorts World seems to be furthest along.

“We have been working very diligently to refine our design,” said Michael Levoff, vice president of corporate communications for Genting Americas. “That is work that’s ongoing. Also, we have done a lot of work on the site in term of preparation.”

NFL officials optimistic about Las Vegas at league meeting

“These issues have been going on for an awful long time. We have not made great progress in Oakland and San Diego,” Goodell said. “We feel strongly about keeping our teams where they are. Relocations are painful and something we want to avoid at all costs, but that is something that we have to continue to work on. Those are decisions the clubs have to make.”

“There are some real strengths to the Las Vegas market,” he said. “It’s clear the Las Vegas market has become more diversified and more broadly involved with entertainment and hitting big events. There is a growth to the market. You can see the trajectory and where it’s going when you look at the data. There were some very positive things about it.”

Raiders owner Mark Davis reacted to Goodell’s comments by saying, “I’m not making any predictions.”

Davis laughed and added, “They have asked us not to talk about relocation, so I’m not going to talk about relocation. There’s a gag order, and I guess it’s just on me.”

“At this point, there’s really no reason for optimism in either market for the Chargers or the Raiders,” Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said.

“I think Las Vegas is a big enough market, and it’s a different market than Oakland. There’s a real enthusiasm from the powers that be that run that city and state to have an NFL team, and that goes a long way.”

“It’s not the biggest market, and you would prefer a bigger one,” Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said. “But sometimes you have to go where the opportunity is.”

Raiders, Adelson family fine-tuning stadium development details

Meeting on Thursday in Las Vegas, Raiders executives and several Adelson family members, including Las Vegas Sands Corp. Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson, discussed details from stadium naming rights to parking revenue to locker-room design, said Andy Abboud, vice president of government relations and community development for Las Vegas Sands.

Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak also attended the meeting and tweeted afterward, “Had a great meeting today with the Raiders and the Adelson family. Both are working very hard to finalize a complicated deal.”

Sisolak said the meeting, attended by Raiders President Marc Badain and Dan Ventrelle, one of the team’s attorneys, was conducted in Adelson’s office at The Venetian.

Much of the discussion centered around the process that lies ahead as the Raiders prepare to file a request with the NFL to relocate the team from Oakland to Las Vegas. That request is expected to be made in January, prior to owners’ meetings preceding Super Bowl 51 in Houston.

Really? A Dave & Buster's playground with some frat-tastic touches like beer pong and a gratuitous reclaimed wood bar?

This looks exactly like what out of touch gray executives would speculate that "kids these days" want.

I'm pretty sure....100% sure....that the move of the Raiders to Las Vegas has not been finalized, at least not yet.

I wonder what odds are being given? If you take the "no" you could make yourself rich.

Intangibles make Las Vegas competitive for NFL franchise, analysts say

“The Raiders situation is unique because they figure on getting Raiders fans who followed the team in Los Angeles that can drive to the game and they might also get fans from Oakland who are willing to travel for games,” said associate professor Jim Cross. “It’s not like you’re putting a team in St. Louis where you’re not going to have people coming in from out of town.”

As a leading resort destination, Las Vegas also has the advantage of being a desirable place for a leisure trip in addition to being the site of a game where out-of-town fans can see their teams play.

While Oakland possesses several attributes that market studies would say are positives, Cross pointed out that the Raiders aren’t the only NFL team in town.

SIMILARITIES TO NASHVILLE

“I think a better analogy to Las Vegas may be someplace like Nashville. Nashville is actually a smaller town than Las Vegas. They’ve got NHL hockey and they’ve got NFL football and I think the current population is around 2 million,” Cross said.

THE 24-HOUR APPEAL

“It’s a 24-hour town, so one-third of our people may be working at any given time. There are a lot of other entertainment opportunities. How is our economy evolving? We’re becoming more diverse, so that’s a good thing.“

After New Year’s, the next big show in Las Vegas is CES

This year will be the biggest CES ever with 2.5 million square feet of exhibit space. Most conventions and trade shows measure their success on how much real estate they can lease rather than by how many people show up. But CES is no slouch for attendance, the number that grabs Las Vegas’ attention, with somewhere between 165,000 and 175,000 people planning to be here Jan. 5-8.

The exhibit space for this year’s CES will be in record territory, thanks to the city’s tourism leaders anticipating growth not only for this show but for others that are expanding. There also are show producers who want to stage their shows in Las Vegas but can’t as they can’t elbow their way onto the convention calendar because of prior agreements with other shows and date commitments.

To MGM Resorts International’s credit, that company saw the trends coming and moved to expand its convention center at Mandalay Bay and convert a theater that once housed the Cirque du Soleil show “Zarkana” at Aria into convention space.

The LVCVA made its move by announcing a plan to acquire the Riviera, knock it down and then provide additional space for outdoor exhibits before developing plans for a new exhibit hall.

The authority is just about to wrap up Phase 1 of the plan, imploding two Riviera towers over the summer and sweeping everything up for outdoor exhibit use.

CES will be the first show to take advantage of the new space.

A newly striped parking lot where the Riviera’s buildings once stood, designated as the Diamond Lot by the LVCVA, will be available for parking.

New downtown Las Vegas theatres aimed at locals, not tourists or children

There’s a new theater downtown, ending the area’s six-year streak without the silver screen following the closure of Galaxy 14 Neonopolis on Fremont Street.

Eclipse Theaters, at 814 S. Third St., opened Nov. 30. While Galaxy 14 Neonopolis catered to tourists with a few local events mixed in, Eclipse Theaters is separated from the resort areas, on the edge of the Arts District, and the staff hopes to be part of the downtown scene’s burgeoning growth.

California’s energy needs could boost Nevada

As part of a final push for clean energy in the remaining weeks of the Obama administration, the Department of the Interior approved a 728-mile power line Dec. 13 that will move wind energy from Wyoming to Southern Nevada. That wind power, which the federal agency says is enough to supply 1.8 million homes, could then be sold to Western states, especially California.

California is a key market for many clean-energy projects — even beyond its borders — because of its high renewables portfolio standard. Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law requiring power providers to acquire 50 percent of their energy from renewable sources by 2030.

“California needs a lot of renewable energy and cost-effective renewable energy,” said Kara Choquette, a spokesperson for the wind-energy transmission project, known as TransWest Express. She explained that delivery of thousands of megawatts from a wind farm in Southern Wyoming to existing energy infrastructure in Nevada will optimally position sales of electricity to a variety of Western customers, similar to the Hoover Dam. Even if TransWest Express does not deliver its power to Nevada households, the state could benefit from an economic standpoint. The $3 billion project, crossing 140 miles of Nevada land in Lincoln and Clark counties, is projected to bring 250 construction jobs and generate $24 million in tax revenue.
