US – Durango Station casino development green lit by Spring Valley Town Advisory BoardBy Phil - 3 September 2021
Station Casinos has cleared the latest hurdle in its efforts to bring a casino to the Las Vegas’ southwest valley, with a vote of confidence for its Durango Station by Spring Valley Town Advisory Board.
Clark County commissioners must now vote on the project if it is to see the light of day.
Rebecca Miltenberger, real estate attorney for Station Casinos through law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, said: “We are presenting a plan to you that includes just over 400 hotel rooms and a reduction in gaming floor space to approximately 99,000 square feet.”
Station added: “Station Casinos appreciate the Spring Valley Town Advisory Board and its residents for this input on and support of the Durango project. Our new development will be a great addition and a great community partner, employing thousands of construction and full-time team members and creating tens of millions of dollars in new state and local taxes.”
Station Casinos CEO Frank Fertitta III said: “We think Durango is the only non-restricted gaming location on that part of the Beltway within a 5 mile radius. It’s one of the fastest growing areas of the city. We think it’s very, very underserved and we’re currently very focused on the scope of the project and defining that and basically working to make our project, the most efficient project that we have ever built as a company, trying to take everything that we’ve learned along the way. And so we hope to be sharing those details by the next call. We’ll be able to share the timing and the scope of that project, but we would like to be in a position to be in the ground in early 2022.”
It will take approximately between 18 to 24 months to build the resort.
