Las Vegas Sands proposes $1B domed stadium

Casino giant Las Vegas Sands Corp. will lead a consortium of investors planning to build a $1 billion domed stadium on 42 acres near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas that would house the school's football team — and possibly a National Football League franchise.

Andy Abboud, Las Vegas Sands' senior vice president of government relations and community development, said Thursday that Las Vegas needs a modern stadium with at least 65,000 seats to drive additional tourism to Southern Nevada.

"We are moving forward with the stadium concept with or without an NFL team," Abboud said Thursday. "We see a lot more opportunities — conference championships, bowl games, NFL exhibition football, boxing, soccer, neutral site games, and music festivals. There is an entire segment out there."

The project, so far only a concept, involves Los Angeles-based Majestic Realty Co. and UNLV, which bought 42 vacant acres along Tropicana Avenue east of Koval Lane earlier this month. UNLV wants to move its football program from the aging Sam Boyd Stadium in the east valley to a new facility closer to campus. A donation through the UNLV Foundation covered the $50 million site purchase.

Abboud said the project would be a "public-private partnership" in which Las Vegas Sands or the Adelson family would contribute an unspecified large portion of the financing. He said the company, which operates The Venetian and Palazzo, as well as casinos in Macau, Singapore and Pennsylvania, also could raise financing for the project.

Abboud said Las Vegas Sands may seek legislative approval for diversion of hotel room tax revenues that now support the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to the project. The company plans to present its idea in February or March to the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, which is tasked with finding ways to further grow the tourism economy.

"Nothing will move that needle like a new world-class stadium," Abboud said.

Public funding would cover two-thirds of UNLV stadium costs

A domed stadium proposed for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas football team has a price tag of $1.2 billion, and developers would seek $780 million in public financing, according to a document provided by Las Vegas Sands Corp., which is leading a consortium behind the project.

Private investors would contribute $420 million toward the planned 65,000-seat stadium, with various tourist-driven tax sources — commercial conveyance on taxicabs, rental car taxes or hotel room taxes — providing the bulk of the funding.

Las Vegas Sands announced plans for the domed stadium on 42 acres near UNLV last week. Andy Abboud, Las Vegas Sands' senior vice president of government relations and community development, said Las Vegas needs a modern stadium to drive additional tourism to Southern Nevada.

The stadium would house the university's football team and possibly a National Football League franchise. Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis met with Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson to discuss the proposed stadium Friday.

According the 22-page presentation, legislative action would be required to establish a budget and funding formula for the public financing. Lawmakers would need to authorize creation of a Stadium Authority Board to oversee the 42-acre site.

Enabling legislation for a “fee”-based source of public revenue is required for the $780 million in public money.

According to the presentation, the domed stadium would open in 2020 if construction were to begin in 2017.

Las Vegas Sands said the domed stadium would provide $600 million to $800 million in total annual economic benefit, including $200 million in direct construction wages and $300 million annually for Las Vegas resort and retail sector.

NFL sends memo to teams about Raiders' possible move to Las Vegas

Hours after Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis visited Las Vegas on Friday to explore a new home for his team, the NFL sent a memo to all 32 franchises that said the league has no rules against moving to any particular market.

The memo, first reported by the Los Angeles Daily News, specifically addressed the talk of Las Vegas as a possible destination for an NFL team and addressed Davis' tour of the proposed stadium site along Tropicana Avenue.

Much of the buzz around Las Vegas luring the Raiders has centered on whether the NFL would bar their move because of the state's legalized gambling. However, the memo tells the teams there are no preconceived rules regarding relocation.

The memo directed the teams to not assume that a move to Las Vegas would be vetoed by the league. It said the NFL, which needs 24 yes votes by owners to move a franchise, would take Las Vegas as serious as any other prospective home for relocation.

Raiders owner Mark Davis says 'brand would do well' in Las Vegas

Speaking for the first time since visiting Las Vegas on Friday, Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said Monday the prospect of moving his team to Nevada is "interesting" but he's not sure how well it would be received by the rest of the NFL.

Davis, speaking on a podcast with San Jose Mercury-News columnist Tim Kawakami, said he had a "great meeting" in Las Vegas, where he toured the 42-acre site near UNLV that Las Vegas Sands Corp. has proposed building a $1.2 billion domed stadium.

Davis said he met with casino giants Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn, Ultimate Fighting Championship owner Lorenzo Fertitta, UNLV president Len Jessup and former school president Donald Snyder.

"I think Las Vegas is coming along," he said. "I don't know if the environment is correct for the National Football League or not. That's for the other (31) owners to decide."

However, Davis said the "the Raider brand would do well there." The NFL circulated a memo late Friday that the league would consider all cities as possible relocation sites.

Davis reiterated that he is not interested in moving the team, even temporarily, to Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, current home of the San Francisco 49ers and this week's Super Bowl 50 site.

Wynn Las Vegas plans to build a two-story, 86,502-square-foot shopping center addition with a basement, according to papers published by the county.

The shopping center, intended to have retail outlets and restaurants, will be situated southwest of the Wynn Las Vegas parking garage and north of the resort’s main gate. Plans also include a colored concrete sidewalk along Las Vegas Boulevard South and fabric awnings outdoors.

The building is designed to have a “flat roof with parapet wall and corniced edges at varying heights” as well as facades with “varying geometrical shapes and depth,” according to the county papers.

SLS Las Vegas, meanwhile, intends to open a three-story, 52,000-square-foot building with a pool on top and convention space below, county papers show.

The SLS convention building, meanwhile, follows the announcement last year that Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. would take over management of the Lux tower at SLS and turn it into a W Hotel by the end of September.

The new convention and pool building will be in a courtyard area at the center of the SLS, near the soon-to-be W tower.

The roof will include a bar, bathrooms and back-of-house area to support an “outside bar/nightclub with swimming pool,” according to county papers. A statement from when the W project was announced said the redone hotel tower would feature a an “exclusive outdoor pool and bar” called Wet.

Both plans were approved by the Zoning Commission at its meeting today.

Will video game arena come to Las Vegas Strip?

The Las Vegas Strip may eventually be home to an arena for competitive video games if one Chinese company gets its way.

Beijing-based Ourgame International Holdings Ltd., the parent company of the World Poker Tour, wants to build multiple arenas for competitive video games, or e-sports, around the globe — and it sees Las Vegas as a prime location. Ourgame already runs such an arena in Beijing, and officials said this week that the company was teaming up with a group of other Chinese businesses to expand to other countries.

Frank Ng, Ourgame’s chief executive, said in an interview that he would like to see at least a dozen e-sports arenas worldwide within the next three to five years. If one came to the Strip, it would probably function similar to the company’s Beijing version, a 14,000-square foot complex comprising a 200-seat arena, a broadcast studio, hundreds of gaming stations and more.

Second electric car company plans manufacturing plant in Southern Nevada

A second electric car company is planning to build a manufacturing plant in Southern Nevada, and it's further along in development than Faraday Future — it has two car models it is showing off in Las Vegas this week.

Executives with 2050 Motors, which has a distribution agreement with China's Jiangsu Aoxin New Energy Automobile Co., Ltd., said Friday they are evaluating sites to build a plant in Las Vegas.

The 2050 Motors vehicles are the first electric vehicles manufactured with carbon fiber materials. That makes them lighter and stronger than conventional vehicles, giving them added range. Company officials say their cars will have a range of more than 200 miles on a charge.

The "Bliss Dance" sculpture created by artist Marco Cochrane is seen during an unveiling at The Park, MGM Resorts International's outdoor dining and entertainment district, on Friday, March 4, 2016. The 40-foot statue of a dancing woman weighs 7,500 pounds.

Boulevard Mall nets 31,000 square-foot aquarium

The Boulevard Mall has landed some unusual tenants in its makeover bid, but its latest catch is really fishy.

The Sansone Cos.’ turnaround project on Maryland Parkway has signed a lease with Sea Quest Aquarium to open a 31,000 square-foot, interactive attraction that will let visitors feed caimans and swim with stingrays, among other activities.

Making tracks: Light-rail proposal for Maryland Parkway is moving forward

Regardless of what happens with light rail on the Las Vegas Strip, plans that could produce a similar system just a bit to the east are moving full speed ahead.

The Regional Transportation Commission held a series of public gatherings this week to collect feedback about developing either urban light rail or bus rapid transit on and near Maryland Parkway between downtown Las Vegas and McCarran International Airport. Officials seem inclined to support the light rail option, should the necessary funding be available — and they’re not waiting to see whether the transit technology will come to the Strip as well.

In-N-Out is opening its first location on the Las Vegas Strip

This’ll be welcome news to the millions of Las Vegas visitors who hail from east of the Rockies (well, except for those from Dallas): Caesars Entertainment Corporation has announced that In-N-Out Burger — the iconic West Coast chain that inspires envy in much of the rest of the land for burgers made from pure beef chuck ground in its own facilities, french fries hand-cut while you watch and shakes made from real ice cream — is opening its first outlet on the Las Vegas Strip, at The Linq Promenade.

LAS VEGAS — Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis was back in Las Vegas on Friday, and it wasn’t for April Fools. He toured UNLV’s Sam Boyd Stadium and evaluated whether the school could serve as a temporary home for the NFL team if a deal is ultimately reached to construct a new football palace in Sin City.

His attendance on the tour was revealed after a photo was tweeted showing Davis walking with UNLV heavyweights — Sands Casino chairman Sheldon Adelson has proposed the construction of a 65,000-seat stadium that would be shared between the Raiders and UNLV Rebels football team.

Mike Newcomb, executive director of Sam Boyd Stadium, said the 90-minute tour went well, and that Davis left with an overall positive feeling of his team playing football games at the venue. “They’re really excited about Las Vegas,” Newcomb said of the Raiders. “Mr. Davis had never been to Sam Boyd before, and I think he was surprised and excited about how nice it was.”

MGM celebrates opening of the Park entertainment district

MGM Resorts International on Monday celebrated the opening of its Park dining and entertainment district, which officials praised for bringing a new kind of public space to the bustle of the Las Vegas Strip.

CEO Jim Murren, Gov. Brian Sandoval and others kicked off the Park’s debut with a news conference and ribbon cutting this morning in advance of the $100 million development’s opening to the public later Monday afternoon.

The Park features a series of restaurants alongside a lengthy stretch of landscaped open space between New York-New York and Monte Carlo, leading customers from the sidewalk of Las Vegas Boulevard back to the new 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena, which opens Wednesday.

With no new gambling space and an emphasis on the outdoor environment, the Park continues a trend on the Strip away from traditional casino development and toward nongaming attractions. Caesars Entertainment’s Linq promenade, the accompanying High Roller observation wheel and the Grand Bazaar Shops in front of Bally’s have taken similar approaches.

T-Mobile Arena lives up to the hype

Believe everything you’ve heard. While there was plenty of hype about tricked-out T-Mobile Arena leading up to Wednesday’s opening concert headlined by The Killers, fact is, the venue was designed with the fan experience in mind.

Those who arrived when the doors opened just after 6 p.m. were rewarded with easy access and entry (this wasn’t the TSA screening checkpoint at McCarran), ample amenities and beers priced between $10 and $13, depending upon your tastes.

And no lines. For anything — bathrooms, bars or food.

Needless to say, it was a shining moment for Las Vegas and The Killers. The homegrown act was more than deserving of being the first band to get top billing in the Strip’s stunning new arena. Since forming 14 years ago, the Killers have climbed to top to become one of the most celebrated acts to ever come out of Las Vegas, and this was their moment.

Wynn Resorts announces major Las Vegas expansion project

Steve Wynn intends to transform the golf course behind his Las Vegas resorts into an expansive new development that includes a 38-acre lagoon attraction accompanied by a 1,000 room-hotel tower, a small casino, restaurants, nightlife and meeting space.

Wynn, chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts Ltd., revealed the plans during a presentation to investors in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Tentatively titled Wynn Paradise Park, the development would be built on 130 acres that are currently home to the golf course just east of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore.

The project does not appear to have a firm price tag yet, but Wynn indicated that it could cost as much as $1.6 billion. It still needs approval from his company’s board of directors.

As described by Wynn, Paradise Park will function largely as an entertainment attraction centering on the lagoon, which will have a white sand beach, boardwalk and an island in the middle. Guests could water ski, paddle board and parasail during the day, and at night they could see a fireworks show that Wynn described as “just like Disney.”

Customers would pay admission to enter the attraction, Wynn said.

Aside from the aquatic options, the park will also come with an additional 260,000 square feet of meeting space with waterfront views, comfortable hotel rooms with “a separate bedroom, living room and balcony,” and “a variety of restaurants,” according to a statement from Wynn Resorts.

Announcement of the project comes as Wynn Resorts also moves forward with plans for a large luxury retail complex, Wynn Plaza, on its property near Las Vegas Boulevard. The development will include more than 75,500 square feet of luxury retail space, and it’s expected to debut in fall 2017.
