It may come as a shock (not really), but the Las Vegas Strip could soon see a brand new 43-story resort and casino around the corner from Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Ave.
According to an article published by Eli Segall on ReviewJournal.com, billionaire Tilman Fertitta filed plans with the Clark County Commission to build a high-end project on approximately 6 acres of land on the southeast corner of the Undress at Harmon. Clark County filings show plans include “restaurants, convention space, a spa, a wedding chapel, an auto showroom and an approximately 2,500-seat theater,” plus “suites, villas, VIP lounges and a bar and lounge for high limit players”.
65 years Tilman Fertitta has a whole bunch of stuff, including Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino downtown Vegas, the NBA Houston Rockets basketball team, as well as many other restaurants, hotels and commercial businesses. According Forbes magazine, his net worth is estimated at $7.7 billion. This adventure project in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip would make him a real player on the Vegas casino scene.
But wait, there’s more! Fertitta’s property at Las Vegas Boulevard and Avenue Harmon is just one of the major ongoing projects in this area. By Segall’s article on ReviewJournal.com, New York investment firm Capital Gindi recently had plans approved by the Clark County Commission for a “new three-story shopping complex just south of Fertitta’s property.”
Then there is The luxury group Flag of New York, led by developer Brett Torino, who plan to build a four-storey shopping complex across from Fertitta’s land at the southwest corner of the bandaged at Harmon. This property includes plans for a restaurant chain Ocean Premium to invest approximately $20 million in a new location.
I sure hope that famous quote from the movie field of dreams is true: “If you build it, they will come.”
