Smith Center Las Vegas

Someone needs to showcase the lovely Smith Center for the Performing Arts by David M. Schwarz here!
It's a mezmerizing recent Neo Art Deco masterpiece reminiscing the nearby Hoover Dam. Finished in 2012.

Smith Center Las Vegas 2

I'm dedicating two more posts to the Smith Center of Vegas.

Since we didn't have some LV thread here so far that should be fair.
Certainly among my favorites of this decade so far, globally.

Well, have a look at the US forum thread for Las Vegas Metro Development News.

A Malaysian conglomerate that hopes to build a $4 billion Asian-themed resort at the site of a long-stalled hotel construction project on the Las Vegas Strip crossed a major regulatory hurdle Wednesday.

Officials with the Nevada Gaming Control Board recommended a gaming license for Genting Berhad, the investment arm of Genting Group. The matter is scheduled for a second round of scrutiny May 22 before the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Officials with Genting, which operates casinos in the Asia, the United Kingdom, the Bahamas and New York, told regulators they plan to break ground this year on Resorts World Las Vegas. The project would incorporate 80 percent to 85 percent of the buildings in the partially built Echelon project and directly create about 8,500 jobs.

The initial phase is expected to include 3,000 hotel rooms, a large casino, a 4,000-seat theater with a rotating schedule of shows and a lush garden attraction. Company officials said they're also considering adding a 20th Century Fox theme park similar to one planned at a Genting property in Malaysia.

Genting’s Strip project may house studio tour-type theme park
By HOWARD STUTZ
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Posted May 7, 2014 - 11:28am Updated May 7, 2014 - 1:43pm

There may not be pandas, but the Strip may house a studio tour-type theme park once Malaysia-based Genting Berhad finishes developing an 87-acre site for Resorts World Las Vegas.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board on Wednesday recommended Genting be given a preliminary finding of suitability to hold a state gaming license. The Nevada Gaming Commission will take up the matter May 22.

Genting will still need to apply for a full gaming license before Resorts World Las Vegas can open.

Construction of the development will take place over multiple years and include at least two or three phases.

The initial phase will cost $4 billion and will include 3,000 hotel rooms, a casino with a combined 3,500 slot machines and table games, 30 food and beverage outlets, a 4,000-seat theater and an elaborate garden attraction that will serve as the property’s front door to the Strip.

Genting will also build a rooftop sky park and observation deck atop the 674-foot-tall tower, whose height has already been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, company officials told the Control Board during a presentation at the Sawyer Building that lasted more than two hours.

Other attractions include a 50,000 square foot, 58-foot-tall aquarium that will feature a variety of exotic fish.

Christian Goode, who oversees Genting’s Americas division, said site development is already underway on the northern Strip land parcel on which the unfinished Echelon buildings stand.

Goode said Genting plans to incorporate 80 percent to 85 percent of the Echelon buildings into the Resorts World development. He said it will take 24 to 36 months to complete the project’s first phase on the former Stardust site

“You should see some major development by the second half of the year,” Goode said.

While describing Resorts World Malaysia, Genting President and Chief Operating Officer Kong Han Tan told the Control Board the company will add a 20th Century Fox World studio tour-style theme park that is expected to open in 2016.

When questioned by Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett, Tan said the company is considering adding a similar theme park to one of the next phases of Resorts World Las Vegas.

Control Board member Sean Reid asked whether the company was still considering a live panda exhibit at the Strip resort.

Goode said there are many hurdles to clear with the Chinese government before the company could get a panda permit.

“It’s a complicated process,” Goode said. “We’re looking into it.”

Genting Chairman KT Lim told the regulators that Resorts World Las Vegas would increase visitation to Southern Nevada, primarily from foreign destinations. The company has a customer database with more than 1 million names.

“Cannibalizing the Las Vegas existing market is not an option,” Lim said. “We think we can drive new visitation to Las Vegas.”

Updated 4 hours, 18 minutes ago

Findlay Sports and Entertainment and The Cordish Companies today announced plans to build a 24,000-seat stadium downtown at Symphony Park. The stadium would be designed specifically for a pro soccer team.

Cordish has been in a development contract with Las Vegas since 2008 to build a stadium at the 61-acre site and negotiate with professional leagues for a team to play there. The park already includes the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute and the Smith Center for the Performing Arts.

The agreement between Cordish and Las Vegas expires May 31. During the May 21 City Council meeting, the Cordish and Findlay groups plan to ask for an extension and request a change to the proposal to include both organizations.

An official from MLS confirmed discussions to bring a franchise to Las Vegas.

Hotel tycoon Steve Wynn peeled off a lot of greens to buy the life-sized sculpture of cartoon character Popeye created by pop-modern artist Jeff Koons at the Sotheby’s auction in New York on Wednesday night.

In fact, $28.2 million greens, and he did it by phone from his desk at his Strip hotel. It was part of a two-night sale of postwar and contemporary art that brought in more than $1 billion in record sales.

The shiny, mirrored sculpture of Popeye will go on display in the lobby of the Wynn within the month. Steve is a fan of Jeff: He purchased “Tulips” in 2012 for $33.6 million.

Jeff Koons’ sculpture Tulips is on show at the Wynn and Encore in Las Vegas. Steve Wynn purchased it in 2012 for $33.6 million.

The 9 a.m. June opening will include a Kiss for Las Vegas — actually 1 million Kisses. Hershey’s Chocolate World will give out the 1 million Kisses as part of the opening ceremonies.

The opening date announcement came the same day the store installed an 18-foot Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup as part of its signage on New York – New York Hotel & Casino.

○4: Restroom facilities (5,526 square feet each)

○16: The maximum number of events local officials would like to see per year
○11: The number of hours local officials would like to limit live entertainment to within the lot (2 p.m. to 1 a.m., specifically)
○0: Number of on-site parking spaces (all attendants will need to walk or arrive by bus, taxi, limo or shuttle; shuttle service is being proposed from the lot across from Luxor)
