Our sharp-eyed colleagues at Travel Weekly
have found an online investor's video that offers many details about Malaysian gaming-resort company Genting Group's forthcoming Las Vegas project.
Until recently, details have been scant on the $4-billion Resorts World Las Vegas property. The resort is expected to play a major role in the revitalization of the north end of the Strip, which has already welcomed Sam Nazarian's SLS Las Vegas earlier this year. The video
includes a 3-D "flythrough" of several sections of the proposed Resorts World property, highlighting the Chinese-themed architecture.
According to the video, the first phase of the project will encompass 10 million square feet, and includes a 315,000-square-foot Grand Theater with room for 4,200 attendees; a rooftop nightclub; a Forbidden City retail village; lush gardens; and a Great Wall passageway connecting the property to the Las Vegas Strip.
Earlier announcements include Phase One details such as a 1,000-room hotel tower; a 100,000-square-foot casino; more than 30 restaurants, bars and, other dining facilities; an aquarium; a main bar featuring live entertainment; a main showroom; and an observation deck with a view down the Strip.
Subsequent phases of the project will include a convention center of about approximately 1 million square feet, 2,000 more rooms spread across a total of four hotel towers, more casino space, a water park, a movie theater complex, a bowling alley, and a "new, still-to-be-determined large-scale attraction," according to a presentation Genting made to the Nevada Gaming Control Board in May.
