Station Casinos has broken ground on a project to build a new casino in Las Vegas, the Durango Casino & Resort, and is set to launch towards the end of 2023.

Expected to cost in the region of $750m, Red Rock Resorts, which is Station Casinos’ parent company, gathered hundreds of employees, contractors and project managers for a private ceremony to mark the launch of the project. 

Plans for the new casino and resort include a 200-room hotel and an 83,000 square foot casino, which is expected to feature dedicated sportsbook and race betting areas, four food and beverage facilities, a swimming pool, an environmentally friendly event lawn and space for meetings and conventions. 

Scott Kreeger, President, Red Rock Resorts, commented: “We bent a lot of rules in what was traditionally viewed as a gaming property, and I know that was met with great success. So I think the types of things you saw with Red Rock you’re going to see at the next level with Durango. 

“For 45 years, we’ve been the go-to in the market for entertainment and gaming; and each time we build a new property, we’ve taken what we’ve learned along the journey and created something new that’s relevant for the time, the customer preference and stretch the envelope of creativity and offering from one property to the next.” 

Kreeger, who recently rejoined the company, previously served in the operations, property management, marketing and technology departments before returning as President. 

He previously served as President and COO at Revel Resort and Casino, based in New Jersey, before serving as Operations Director at Galaxy Entertainment Group in Macau. 

Durango Casino will add to the six other Station casinos currently in operation in Nevada, with a further three of its venues currently closed following the Covid-19 pandemic.  

Richardson Builders and Friedmutter Group were selected as the project’s construction manager and architect of record, respectively. Looney & Associates and Avenue ID will serve as designers.
