This morning it was announced that Boyd Gaming would sell the site where they planned on building Echelon to Genting Group. The empty lot with a partially built building across the street from Wynn will be home to Resorts World Las Vegas in 2016.
Resorts World Las Vegas is expected to open in 2016 with multiple restaurants and dining options, along with 250,000 square feet of retail, more than 500,000 square feet of convention space, a theater and outdoor pool amenities.
It looks like Resorts World will use all the land similarly to what previously planned for Echelon. When construction begins it will bring a lot of excitement to the north end of the Vegas strip which is barren with stalled projects. Fontaine Bleau is decaying every day and SBE says that the SLS Hotel has begun construction even if we can’t see anything.
