Steelman Partners to design Resorts World Las Vegas integrated resort for Genting
Leading Nevada elected officials including Governor Brian Sandoval, US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Architect Paul Steelman of Steelman Partners, this month joined Genting Group Chairman KT Lim in announcing plans for a transformational new development project at the Echelon site along the Las Vegas Strip.
Genting has announced that it has acquired from Boyd Gaming Corporation the 87-acre parcel, which will be used to create ‘Resorts World Las Vegas,’ Genting’s first destination resort in Las Vegas.
“We are incredibly grateful to the leaders of the State of Nevada, Clark County and the City of Las Vegas for joining us in announcing what will be a fantastic addition to the top resort destination in the United States,” said KT Lim, Chairman and Chief Executive of the Genting Group. “This is a great day for Genting, Las Vegas, and the State of Nevada, and we look forward to taking full advantage of this exciting new opportunity.”
Resorts World Las Vegas will be a world-class destination resort with 3,500 rooms in the first phase, as well as 175,000 sq ft of total gaming space across several gaming floors, and several luxury dining and retail amenities. The resort will also include additional convention space for Las Vegas trade shows, helping the city attract international business travellers with a distinct focus on business-to-business events and conferences.
The facility will feature many entertainment features including a 7 acre enclosed water park, a first for Nevada. “This is an unparalleled opportunity to showcase what has made the Resorts World brand a globally recognised success for the past several decades,” added Lim.
