US – Station ready to top off on Durango Casino ResortBy Phil - 5 October 2022
Construction crews at Durango Casino Resort are set to top off the 15-story, 318-foot tower with the final beam and pour the last floor of the hotel October 7.
Leaders from Station Casinos and William A. Richardson Builders alongside, Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones and hundreds of construction workers, will be on-site to sign the final beam and celebrate this milestone.
Work on the project began earlier this year and has progressed quickly. Durango Casino Resort is slated to open late in the fourth quarter of 2023. Over 1,600 construction workers will work on the project, and over 1,200 full-time permanent positions will be filled upon completion of the property.
“Station Casinos is bullish on the local and overall Las Vegas gaming market, which is why we are investing $750m in Durango Station,” said Scott Kreeger, President of Station Casinos. “This brick-and-mortar investment will create thousands of construction and permanent jobs, generating tens of millions of dollars in economic impact and tax revenue to the state and county.”
The property will include 83,000 square feet of casino space offering the latest games and an open floorplan seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor socializing spaces, a hotel tower with over 200 beautiful guest rooms and suites, four signature food and beverage outlets, a state-of-the-art race and sportsbook and 20,000 square feet of meeting and convention space.
W.A. Richardson Builders was selected as the project’s construction manager with Las Vegas-based Friedmutter Group signed up as the architect.
Upon arrival, guests will immediately be greeted by natural stone-clad floors and walls, while the texture, light, and neutral tones flood the space. Durango’s inviting hotel lobby has relaxed energy and breeze while thoughtful design and warm light greet guests at the open doors. The stunning room effortlessly flows into the lobby bar, where cozy nooks, cool sofas, and one-of-a-kind art pieces create the perfect chemistry of conversations, relaxation, and a sense of place.
The lobby bar is a private oasis tucked away from the hotel’s main entrance. The lobby bar takes inspiration from travels worldwide and the beautiful palette of the desert landscape; the space exudes sophistication, simplicity, and softness. The lobby bar provides numerous seating groupings to create a collaborative environment, a place for guests to socialize and sip cocktails, plug-in and work, or dine, both inside and out.
