LAS VEGAS | Resorts World Las Vegas | 198m+ | 150m+ x 2 | 100m x 2 | 44-57 fl | Pro

Formerly "Echelon". The Echelon site which saw construction halted amid the 2008 financial crisis has been sold to Genting, a Malaysian casino developer. The new name will be Resorts World Las Vagas, in keeping with Genting's other casino megadevelopments around the world. Work on the new multi-billion dollar plan begins in 2014.

Asian-themed megaresort planned for old Stardust site





An Asian gaming powerhouse is planning a $2 billion Asian-themed mega-resort on the Las Vegas Strip where the old Stardust was imploded and the stalled Echelon was planned.

Genting Group plans to build the 3,500-room Chinese-themed resort with a 175,000-square-foot casino. The company calls it the “first phase” of a property to be named Resorts World Las Vegas.

The company plans to build a replica of the Great Wall of China and develop an enclosure for pandas for public display.

Executives for the Genting Group, a Malaysian multinational company considered a gaming industry powerhouse in Asia, were introduced at a news conference this morning attended by Gov. Brian Sandoval, Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Chris Giunchigliani and local business leaders.

Boyd Gaming, the Las Vegas company that started and stopped construction of a resort it called Echelon, is selling the 87-acre site for $350 million to Genting, which says it will spend between $2 billion and $7 billion by the time the project is complete. The land sale is scheduled to close today.

The groundbreaking is planned for 2014, with the first phase opening in 2016. Technically, the project already is under way because Genting plans to use some of the Echelon superstructure already in place.


Phase 1 of the project will be 8 million square feet, with at least 3,500 rooms, 210,000 square feet of dining, 250,000 square feet of retail space, more than 500,000 square feet of convention space, a 4,000-seat theater, and 300,000 square feet of pool and water park features.

According to a release issued by Genting, the casino space would be spread across several gaming floors, and several luxury restaurants and retail stores are planned.


[...]

New details for heights and floor counts as they emerge...

Nice shots, the drills probably mean the foundation work is starting.

Echelon at 650ft will be a bit taller than both the 2 Wynn towers and the Palazzo in the background, which themselves are by no means small.

The hole keeps getting wider, but don't think it will get much deeper.

Good to see that construction has started, but after looking at the new Fountainebleu renders, Echelon looks very unappealing at street level. Hopefully it'll look better in person.

With Echelon, the attention will be on the details. The building materials and claddings will be unusual and unique. This is a project that will look much much better in person than on paper. Can't wait.

the hotel and suite tower look great, the delano/mondrian complex looks interesting, but the shangri-la stump they tried to sneak into the crack between the two main towers looks, at this point anyway, very misguided. the main entrance also looks a bit bland and suburban. but it has yet to go vertical so we can reserve true judgment for later. i do really like the hotel/suite towers.

That's such a beautiful design. I love those curves. A wave -like design seems to be very popular in Vegas.
