Clark County Officials Approve Houston Billionaire’s Proposed Las Vegas Strip Resort Near Planet Hollywood
LAS VEGAS, NV – Plans for a massive resort and casino on the famed Las Vegas Strip submitted by Houston, Texas-based billionaire businessman Tilman Fertitta have been approved by the Clark County Commission, paving the way for work on the luxury establishment to begin in the near future.
Fertitta’s currently-unnamed resort is slated to be constructed upon a 6.3-acre plot of land located on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard South and Harmon Avenue near the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. When completed, the resort will have an impressive 2,420 rooms spread out over 42 stories, in addition to a 2,536 seat theater and an on-site multi-story parking garage as well.
Clark County records indicate that the resort will also include retail space, indoor and outdoor restaurants, an extensive 37,000 square-foot spa and fitness center, 91,000 square-feet of convention space, business offices, a wedding chapel, and even an auto showroom.
Fertitta – owner of Fertitta Entertainment Incorporated – reportedly paid the sum of $270 million in June for the parcel of land that the establishment is to be built upon. No stranger to hotel-casinos, Fertitta is also responsible for the Golden Nugget Las Vegas as well as gambling venues in New Jersey, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Rebecca Miltenberger, a lawyer from the Las Vegas law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP that represents Fertitta Entertainment Incorporated, recently laid out the approximate timeline for completion of the project for Clark County Commissioners.
“We are very excited to bring this project to fruition over the next two years,” she said.
Despite nationwide inflation reaching levels not seen in 40 years, large-scale construction projects are still making major progress in Las Vegas, with multiple venues currently in the works, including entertainment, gambling, and medical complexes, which have all begun to spring up en masse in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
