New Casino/Hotel/Retail Development for L.V.

Boyd Gaming announces $4 billion complex for Las Vegas Strip
Associated Press
LAS VEGAS - Boyd Gaming Corp. plans to tear down the old Stardust casino to make way for a $4 billion hotel and casino complex on 63 acres of the Las Vegas Strip - one of the largest such developments planned in a town known for mega projects.
The complex, to be called Echelon Place, is scheduled to open in 2010 on the northern end of the strip, the company announced Wednesday. It will include four hotels with 5,300 guest rooms and suites, a 140,000-square-foot casino, theaters, a shopping promenade, spas and acres of convention space.
The site currently houses the aging, 1,500-room Stardust, home to "Mr. Las Vegas" singer Wayne Newton.
Boyd also owns Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City, Ind., the recently opened South Coast casino in Las Vegas and properties in Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi and New Jersey.
Boyd said it plans to continue operating the Stardust through 2006, though in the first quarter it will record a charge of $50 million to $60 million, before taxes, for the pending casino closure.
The company also said Bob Boughner will leave his position at Boyd's Borgata casino in Atlantic City, N.J., to head the new complex.

What do you think about this? I think it is great. The more stuff the more tourists will come. Our version of hotbed Dubai!

This is exciting and all, but it's a shame that they don't keep the iconic Stardust name for any part of the development. It's not going to be the same without a Stardust on the strip (or it's great sign!)
