Stalled Echelon project in Sin City to get new owner, to open as "Resorts World Las Vegas"

Quote:
LAS VEGAS - An Asian conglomerate says it will break ground next year on a long-stalled project that could help revitalize a dilapidated section of the Las Vegas Strip.

The Genting Group announced Monday that it is buying the site where Boyd Gaming Corp.'s partially built Echelon project has gathered dust for four years.

Genting says it will build a multi-billion dollar casino, its first in Las Vegas, on the 87-acre site.

The "Resorts World Las Vegas" project will feature 3,500 hotel rooms, a convention center and a 4,000-seat theater.

...

The Genting Group said it plans to break ground on the new project in 2014, and open in 2016, creating tens of thousands of jobs in the process.

"This is an unparalleled opportunity to showcase what has made the Resorts World brand a globally recognized success for the past several decades," CEO KT Lim said in a statement.

Officials are expected to release additional details during a morning press conference.

The conglomerate already operates casinos in New York state, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, Singapore, and the Bahamas.

It opened its first casino in 1971, in Malaysia.

That would be fantastic news. It's very sad this was on-hold so long. Now it's just some concrete floors. I will stay at the Circus Circus in july. So I will have good views on this.

In the last photo here, it shows that this had about 5 floors built when it was put on-hold. So are they going to demolish them and restart or proceed with the existing plan?

I've found a new rendering, looks a lot like the color of the Wynn and Encore Towers, to much brown for my liking, I wish they would've kept a lighter color scheme, although It seems that a new Asian type resort will be going up as Imperial Palace is being renovated and changed.
This was actually posted today.

Credit: Genting
More info can be found here,
http://blog.vegas.com/las-vegas-hote...s-vegas-28664/

There is even a news video, also from today that shows the new visual rendering aswell.

The whole complex, especially the Chinese city, appears to be absolutely marvelous. It looks like Vegas may be returning to the theme casino trend which is always fun.

Great, looks attractive to take a look in when finished. Also looks like at least 3 100+ towers.
