What makes the perfect Las Vegas casino? World-class restaurants,
no smoking, crunchy cannolis, … and 3:2 blackjack payouts

By Andrea Domanick

Thursday, April 11, 2013 | 2 a.m.


Malaysia-based Genting Group purchased the Echelon site in March and plans to revive
the space with a multibillion-dollar resort. A rendering of the property is pictured.


With Resorts World Las Vegas, the Gansevoort and SLS on the way, the Strip is preparing itself for a new wave of hotel-casinos, each promising a unique Las Vegas experience to top their predecessors and draw tourists the world over.

Novelty, however, isn't enough to guarantee that a casino will thrive. Greenspun Media Group staff members from Vegas Magazine, Vegas Inc. and the Las Vegas Sun weigh in on the elements they'd like to see, as journalists and Las Vegas residents, that would make for the perfect casino:

Resorts World To Commence Construction Within A Year

Quote:
Resorts World has gone on record. Construction on its Las Vegas destination will commence within one year, or by June 19, 2014, specifically.

Property representatives went before local government officials yesterday regarding several points and, unsurprisingly, received approval for all of its requests. A thumbs up was given to its intention to add trees and various other landscaping along its Las Vegas Boulevard border; to drop plans to 'wrap' the long dormant Echelon husk it will replace away from view; and to build a 35-foot-tall wall that will announce the new mega-resort to come. And, not just any wall. This one will have a sound component (mandated to be no louder than 60 decibels, or the volume of a normal conversation) that will play music as well as help direct passersby to one of two preview centers that were also green-lighted.


The $2 billion dollar Resorts World project is expected to make its Las Vegas debut sometime in 2016.

Resorts World, the new mega-resort complex set for the site of the failed Echelon project, should commence construction by June 2014, with an opening sometime in 2016.

While we wait for things to kick into gear, new filings with local zoning officials are providing added insight into what to expect. We've already known the project will be inspired by a "Forbidden City" design and will feature multiple towers (four ranging from 44-57 stories) in a complex not dissimilar to CityCenter. Now we know those towers will offer a combined 6,583 hotel rooms, 22 VIP villas, and 43 Aqua Suites. We don't even know what Aqua Suites are, but we so want to stay in one!

There will also be an on-site convention center, a separate event arena, two production theaters, restaurants, bars, an arcade, gaming, yadda, yadda, yadda. But, here's where our eyes popped --

It will also have an 8-screen movie theater (sorry, UA Showcase), a 28-lane bowling alley (sorry, South Point), an indoor pool, a water park (sorry, Wet'n'Wild), a panda exhibit (sorry, Venetian), and a 17,000-square-foot aquarium (sorry, Shark Reef).

Genting to Spend $4 Billion Finishing Off Las Vegas Resort

Dec 17, 2013 6:27 PM MT

Genting Bhd. (GENT), Southeast Asia’s largest casino operator, will spend as much as $4 billion on completing an unfinished Las Vegas resort it bought from Boyd Gaming Corp. (BYD) earlier this year, its chairman said yesterday.

Genting, controlled by Malaysian billionaire Lim Kok Thay, paid $350 million for the 87-acre (35-hectare) site, once home to the Stardust. The Echelon project will be re-branded Resorts World Las Vegas, with the opening of phase one planned for 2015, the company said at the time.

“We’re at the moment at the planning stage,” Lim told reporters at Malaysia’s Genting Highlands resort, where he operates the country’s only casino. “The group is undergoing regulatory investigations by the Nevada Gaming Board, which is one of the strictest you can get. I’m quite confident we’ll obtain this license and only with that we’ll commence the construction.”

Genting has been pushing into U.S. gambling amid restrictions on opening more casinos on home soil, where Muslims are forbidden from gambling under Malaysia’s Shariah laws. It runs the Resorts World Casino at New York City’s Aqueduct race track, the top-grossing U.S. slot machine parlor, and is pursuing one in Miami. Lim also opened a 750-acre beach front resort on the Bimini islands in the Bahamas in July as part of the group’s expansion in the Americas.

The uncompleted Las Vegas resort became a symbol of U.S. real estate excesses and city’s woes after Boyd stopped construction in August 2008.

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.

I still miss the Stardust I like the throwback to tacky theme Vegas that this building exudes (I hated the CityCenter/Cosmopolitan rebranding of Vegas) but still wish we had Stardust. A lost icon.

The Stardust Sign is at the Neon Boneyard. The Frontier my personal favorite was destroyed.

Genting’s Las Vegas property to break ground May 5
Mar 24, 2015 Newsdesk Latest news, Top of the deck, World


Malaysian conglomerate Genting Bhd is to break ground on its first Las Vegas casino resort on May 5, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper, quoting an email from a company spokesman.

The US$4-billion Resorts World Las Vegas (pictured in an artist’s rendering), on a site formerly controlled by United States-based operator Boyd Gaming Corp at the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip, is likely to be a multi-phase development. No date was mentioned in the report for the opening of the first phase.

Genting gets nod from Nevada gaming board


PETALING JAYA: Genting Bhd has obtained the approval of the Nevada Gaming Control Board to become a publicly-traded entity and finally move forward with its US$4bil (RM16bil) Resorts World Las Vegas development.

According to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal (LVRJ), regulators, via unanimous votes, recommended approval of the suitability of officers, directors and shareholders, as well as Genting’s registration as a public company and its interactive subsidiary for mobile gaming and a loyalty programme.

“The recommendation will go to the Nevada Gaming Commission for consideration May 19,” it said yesterday.

The 3,000-room resort, which will include a 56-storey tower, was supposed to open in 2018.

That would be great, it has been like this way too long. The longer it stays unfinished, the more there needs to be done to finish it.
