Resorts World Las Vegas are on schedule to open at the end of 2020. Genting Berhad’s $4 billion, 59-story, 3,400-room resort is moving steadily forward and will be the first big resort opening in Las Vegas since the Las Vegas Cosmopolitan in December 2010, a company representative said this week.
Last week there were around 1500 construction workers at the site situated at the north end of the Strip, which formerly housed the Stardust and was supposed to become Boyd Gaming’s Echelon, before the Las Vegas company was forced to sell the site after construction had commenced.
It is planned that Resorts World will have an Asian theme, the Las Vegas Review-Journal says. After coming on board in April, a new management team headed by former MGM Grand President Scott Sibella has not announced any changes. He was officially named the local company’s president in May.
According to Morrow Equipment project report, the tower cranes have reached the final hook height of 686′. There is a completed full parking garage. Initial plans scheduled the build to have 6,583 rooms in four buildings, but it has been scaled back to three towers containing around 3,400 rooms.
A company representative said that Resorts World would be a “tech-forward, innovative and inclusive resort” with a “bold, fresh take on hospitality to the Las Vegas market with exciting new experiences, one-of-a-kind culture and seamless guest service.”
“Although Genting Berhad is the owner of Resort World Las Vegas, we believe there is a possibility that Genting Malaysia could play a role in the casino once it is completed, most likely as an operator of the casino,” analysts of the financial group have said.
