Mandalay Bay Convention Center opens major expansion

Meeting space at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center grew to 2 million square feet Tuesday with the opening of the property's $70 million, 350,000-square-foot expansion.

And, it's already in use.

The Men's Apparel Guild in California (MAGIC) fashion trade show, which began Monday, is the first occupant of Mandalay Bay's new space.

"This is an important day, not only to Mandalay Bay and MGM Resorts, but to all of Las Vegas," said Chuck Bowling, president and chief operating officer of Mandalay Bay.

While the main convention hall is open, a second phase will be to repurpose existing meeting rooms, a project expected to be completed by January.

The expansion features a 70,000-square-foot ballroom that is divisible by five for flexibility and break-out areas for corporate groups. The company also is expanding the bandwidth of its Wi-Fi technology.

Atop the new space is an 8-acre rooftop solar photovoltaic array that will go live by fall. Combined with an existing 20-acre array already in place at the convention center, the facility would produce 3.4 million kilowatt hours a year, enough to power the equivalent of 1,300 homes.

It's the largest solar array on a convention center in the world.

They say you always remember your first—your first kiss, your first alcoholic drink and, probably, your first time inside Omnia Nightclub. The 75,000-square-foot space makes for a remarkable experience, but it’s the chandelier—the 33-foot-wide, 22,000-pound metal mass with eight concentric rings moving overhead—that imprints its swirling image onto your brain. It’s as breathtaking as it is technologically astounding: futuristic and opulent and completely unforgettable.

UNLV plans to talk to county about 38 acres near proposed stadium site

A UNLV official plans to talk with Clark County officials on Monday about acquiring 38 acres owned by the county that sit between The Thomas & Mack Center and a proposed stadium site off Tropicana Avenue.

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas wants the county's 38 acres because it's a key connection between the campus and the 42-acre privately owned site at Koval Lane and Tropicana Avenue where UNLV officials hope to build a stadium.

The county's 38 acres are west of The Thomas & Mack Center across the street from McCarran International Airport.

UNLV is working on the purchase. The university will need the Regents' approval in December to borrow money to pay for the $50 million land acquisition before it can close on the land deal on Dec. 18. Regents Michael Wixom and Kevin Page will not be voting on the land deal because of their professional dealings with Wells Fargo, the landowner.

At the meeting, Michael Yackira, chairman of the UNLV Foundation board of trustees, also spoke to the Regents, suggesting they study how UNLV's land deal fits with the university's other capital needs such as the medical school and hotel college.

International trade center could bring the world to North Las Vegas

International trade centers typically don’t come with taglines that describe them as “quirky.” But if North Las Vegas has its way, Huanghai won’t be a typical international trade center.

Depending on the number of foreign investors it attracts, Huanghai could be a $125 million project, with 264 units that are part showroom, part apartment, plus 120 hotel rooms, four restaurants, two office buildings, a convention center and a gas station on what is now an empty 35-acre parcel in the middle of an industrial part of town. Its current neighbors: Republic Services and a rock-crushing operation.

The developer envisions the center, planned for the northeast corner of Commerce Street and Cheyenne Avenue, as a one-stop shop for foreign manufacturers, who could come to the United States, live, eat and show their goods — everything from basic materials such as glass or plastic to consumer goods such as toys or coffee cups — all at one site. Each manufacturer would have one unit with 1,600 feet of showroom space and an 800-square-foot living quarter upstairs.

American companies typically have to travel overseas to find manufacturers. This project would bring the manufacturers to the companies.

If a company were in town for a trade show, for instance, it easily could stop by the North Las Vegas facility to meet with manufacturers to make changes to or fill gaps in its supply chains. The center ideally would include a handful of manufacturers for each type of good.

Nevada high-speed rail panel moving forward with XPressWest

During a three-hour meeting Wednesday, the five-member Nevada High-Speed Rail Authority unanimously selected XpressWest as the state’s franchisee for constructing a high-speed rail system that connects Las Vegas with Southern California. Four applicants competed with XpressWest’s bid but authority officials were in agreement that its proposal was the only one that met their evaluation criteria.

XpressWest officials said they could start construction as early as fall 2016. The project aims to link Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

The board, created in May by Senate Bill 457, was charged with selecting a private developer to operate the rail system and was required to evaluate the applications based on the completion of environmental studies, level of private investment, pending regulatory permits, and how far the applicant is from the start of construction. XpressWest is now required to provide the board with progress reports twice a year. The board, in addition to reviewing the progress, can also help facilitate intergovernmental partnerships.

The initial phase of the XpressWest project, which will link Las Vegas to Victorville, Calif., will cost $8 billion. “In high-speed rail terms, most projects are a lot more expensive than this,” said Nick Hann, an executive at the Macquarie Group working with XpressWest.

The line will mostly run adjacent to Interstate 15, offering roundtrip service for under $100. The project’s second phase will link Las Vegas with Palmdale, via the Victorville station. Riders will then be able to connect with Metrolink to take the train to Los Angeles. In its last phase, XpressWest plans to link its system to California’s high-speed rail. Its technology is interoperable with California’s.

Earlier this month, the Las Vegas-based XpressWest project, formerly named DesertXpress, announced a $100 million investment from a consortium of state-owned Chinese companies. XpressWest officials said they do not plan to seek public funding from the state.

At Wednesday’s meeting, XpressWest’s Chief Operating Officer Andrew Mack said China Railway International, the firm that has committed the $100 million, has a “deep and proven track record in building and operating and financing high-speed rail.”

Construction and implementation of the project is expected to take about five years, with both the Las Vegas to Victorville line and the Victorville to Palmdale line finished at the same time.

Not much has changed from the original XpressWest proposal. It still contemplates as its first phase 185 miles of dual tracks with no grade crossings between Las Vegas and Victorville, roughly along the Interstate 15 right-of-way.

The second phase would extend the track west from Victorville to Palmdale where it would intersect with existing commuter rail service.

Eventually, that commuter rail would be upgraded to high-speed rail when the California High-Speed Rail system is completed. Finally, in the third phase, XpressWest trains would link directly to the California line.

Andrew Mack, chief operating officer of XpressWest, told the authority board that records of decision for environmental permits have been completed for the Las Vegas-Victorville phase and a final environmental impact statement drafted by Caltrans on the Victorville-Palmdale phase is expected to be approved in April.

That means construction on both phases could begin by fall and be completed in five years.

Aria to get $154M convention center expansion

MGM Resorts International will spend $154 million to expand the Aria convention center by 200,000 square feet, which will include indoor/open-air spaces and a glass-enclosed venue offering views of The Park and the new Las Vegas Arena.

With completion of the expansion, Aria will offer more than 500,000 square feet of meeting space.

Construction is scheduled to start in May — a month after the $350 million arena opens — with anticipated completion in February 2018.

The Aria expansion will include technologically advanced, flexible meeting space across four stories.

"Convention business at Aria is booming, and demand is currently exceeding the space we have available," Aria President Bobby Baldwin said. "Hosting large meetings and conventions is a core part of our business. As our clients' needs grow, we are committed to grow with them."

Aria's convention center was built to LEED Gold standards as will the expansion.

The facility's top floor will have an outdoor patio that can accommodate receptions for up to 2,000 guests.

Las Vegas smashes tourism record

Las Vegas has broken its own visitation growth record, surpassing 42 million tourists with New Year's Eve totals still uncounted.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority announced smashing the record in the morning ahead of Wednesday's release of November statistics, which are expected to be robust.

"Las Vegas couldn't have reached this achievement without the support of our resort partners and the dedicated workers who make the Las Vegas experience what it is," said Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO of the authority.

"Whether a first-time visitor or a returning Las Vegas enthusiast, the destination continues to astonish travelers from all over the world with luxury resort experiences, world-class dining and exciting entertainment."

Bolstered by new domestic and international nonstop flights, increased convention attendance throughout the year and the successful opening of several music festivals and special events, the city shattered last year's record of 41.1 million visitors.

Official 2015 totals will be announced in January.

Monte Carlo rebranding draws celebrity chefs to the Strip

Plans are underway for the transformation and rebranding of Monte Carlo, I’m reliably told, with orders from head honchos at MGM Resorts International to “out-Cosmo the Cosmopolitan — hotter and hipper.”

It’s all set to tie in with the new 5,000-seat concert venue there opening late this year for large-scale concerts. Lance Burton’s original theater became home to Blue Man Group, which has subsequently returned to its first Las Vegas home in the Luxor, while the Jabbawockeez returned to MGM Grand to accommodate the shuffling stars.

The theater expansion, which will come in multiple configurations, is in a sense an addition to MGM’s plans for the 2-acre entertainment district and Park, with the new $375 million, 20,000-seat Las Vegas Arena opening in April behind Monte Carlo and New York-New York and its pedestrian-friendly outdoor dining-and-retail complex.

Here’s what I’ve been told: Monte Carlo will eventually get a new name when the transformation is complete. Four new restaurants will be brought in as some existing ones are changed.

Beer Park by Budweiser

With plans to open in early 2016—just in time for the Super Bowl—Beer Park by Budweiser will have 10,000 square feet of outdoor playground with grills, picnic tables and multiple TVs for sports viewing. The Paris venue will offer more than 100 various beers, 36 of them on tap; the food menu will offer American cuisine, including meats grilled on a custom-made Budweiser Beachwood Grill. Roaming carts will sell concession-style treats.

Sugar Factory American Brasserie

Sweet lovers everywhere can begin to rejoice as Sugar Factory American Brasserie will open its largest location in the brand’s portfolio sometime this year. The venue will cover 16,000 square feet and two levels at Fashion Show. The restaurant and retail haven will offer cocktails, cuisine and its famous confections and couture pops. A highlight will be the 3,000-square-foot Chocolate Lounge ,where chocolate fondues are paired with wine, champagne and liquor.



Topgolf Las Vegas

Score! Or should it be “fore”? Come this spring, a four-level entertainment complex on the MGM Grand grounds will house all things golf. The facility will offer 102 climate-controlled hitting bays that can host six players at a time and a 215-yard outfield. Special features will include VIP cabanas, a stage for live musical acts, water features throughout the facility, views of the Strip, event spaces and a restaurant and bar.

MGM Resorts revealed details of the new destination Tuesday. Essentially a large pedestrian mall, The Park will be between the New York-New York and Monte Carlo hotel-casinos. It will link Las Vegas Boulevard with the recently named T-Mobile Arena, which sits behind the two resorts.

The Park is scheduled to open April 4. The 20,000-seat arena, which will host concerts and sporting events, will open two days later, on April 6, with a gala featuring The Killers, Shamir and Wayne Newton.

Upon entering the mall from the Strip, visitors will be greeted by water walls that soar as high as 10-story buildings. Farther along, there are seating areas amid desert plants.

Mature trees and sculptures shaped like trumpets will provide shade. At night, those 50-foot sculptures will glow with LED lighting.

Alongside The Park, MGM Resorts is constructing a 5,000-seat theater at Monte Carlo.

In addition to Bruxie, a number of bars and restaurants will border the new attraction.

Las Vegas Sands Wants Stadium for UNLV, Possibly Raiders

The billionaire owner of the Las Vegas Sands casino company wants to help build a domed stadium on the UNLV campus and is meeting with the owner of the Oakland Raiders, company officials said Thursday.

Sands spokesman Ron Reese said the casino company envisions a public-private partnership to build a $1 billion, 65,000-seat stadium that could be shared by a professional team and UNLV. The Sands would likely partner with other investors and might seek to draw on public revenue sources, such as hotel room tax revenue earmarked for promoting tourism.

Sands owner Sheldon Adelson has scheduled a Friday meeting with Raiders owner Mark Davis. Reese didn't elaborate on the nature of their discussions and the Raiders declined comment.

Adelson's company includes the Venetian and Palazzo hotel-casinos on the Las Vegas Strip as well as casinos in Macau, Singapore and Pennsylvania.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval commissioned a tourism infrastructure committee to screen ideas to attract more visitors and "nothing will move that needle like a new world-class stadium," Reese said in a statement about the development, which was first reported by Nevada political journalist Jon Ralston.
