Station Casinos has received approval to move forward with its plan to build a resort in the southwest valley of Las Vegas.

The Clark County Commission approved the proposal to build a 211-room hotel with an 83,178-square-foot casino on South Durango Drive (south of the 215 Beltway).

The construction, supposed to end by the close of 2023, will have two phases. The first phase is planned to have a single 216-foot-tall hotel tower, water features, a parking structure, four restaurants and beverage stops, a meeting space and a pool space. The second phase calls for a second 216-foot-tall hotel tower with an additional 214 hotel rooms; phase two would increase the casino floor size to 92,911-square-foot, a new parking structure and more lobby space.

The resort’s construction is scheduled to start early next year on the 71-acre plot of desert land that Station Casinos has owned since 2000.

Bob Finch, COO for Red Rock Resorts (Station Casinos' parent company), commented: “Once again Stations, as a true locals casino, is coming to the rescue in the southwest, I’d say, by providing them with a place where they can dine, where they can go hang out. This is a statement to the local market that, you know what? We’re rebounding, and it’s going to be good. Las Vegas is going to continue to grow.”

Amanda Belarmino, Hospitality Professor at the University of Nevada, added: “Not only will this provide entertainment options, but it will provide new job opportunities to that part of the city as well.”
