Tropicana Hotel

Las Vegas Strip’s Iconic Tropicana Hotel to be Imploded in 2024 to Make Way for Oakland Athletics Stadium

LAS VEGAS, NV – The second-oldest hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, the Tropicana, will be closed and imploded in 2024 following its partial closure in November to make way for the construction of a new home stadium for the transplanted Oakland Athletics Major League Baseball (MLB) team, signifying the loss of a major piece of Southern Nevada history in the process as the city moves on to a new year.

The Athletics’ ownership has reached a deal with the Tropicana’s operator, Bally’s Corp., and the owner of the resort casino’s underlying land, Vici Properties. In addition, the industry-leading construction firms responsible for building Allegiant Stadium – the Mortenson | McCarthy Joint Venture – have been contracted to build the MLB team’s proposed new $1.5 billion ballpark on the Las Vegas Strip.

The A’s previously announced that the firms will be responsible for handling all construction-related duties on the upcoming stadium, including estimates prior to the start of construction, scheduling and logistics planning, bidding, coordinating and managing labor, and engaging with the community.

The A’s home stadium – a project expected to cost a total of $1.5 billion – is slated to take the form of a 33,000-seat retractable roof stadium. $380 million in public funds have been earmarked for the A’s new stadium, and the project in its current form could potentially also receive up to $180 million in transferable tax credits as well.

One of the big goals is going to be flexibility for a unique seating capacity, anywhere between 30,000 to 33,000 seats,” A’s Design Director Brad Schrock said. “That really puts us in a sweet spot for a lot of other events aside from just baseball. So, we want to make sure the way that the seating bowl is designed has the flexibility to accommodate multiple events and that it’s a really fun place for fans to come and watch a game.”

The A’s are expected to play their first season in Las Vegas in 2028.

Developer to Construct $380 Million Las Vegas Mixed-Use Facility; Includes NHL-Managed Ice Rink

LAS VEGAS, NV – A California-based developer is planning to construct a $380 million mixed-use sports, entertainment, and retail facility in Las Vegas, with Agora Realty & Management having recently closed on financing and land purchases at the former site of two Las Vegas casinos in order to bring the project to life.

Plans for the upcoming facility including housing, retail, and the a professional-grade public ice rink, which will be managed by the NHL‘s Golden Knights, who play at the Las Vegas Strip’s T-Mobile Arena and won this year’s Stanley Cup championship.

The 73-acre project is slated to be called Hylo Park and will be located in North Las Vegas at the intersection of Rancho Road and Lake Mead Boulevard. It will be made up of 1300 residential units, a retail center anchored by a supermarket, and many sports and entertainment aspects that will be added in a number of construction phases.

The main attraction of the project – and the aspect the rest of the facility will be built around – is Champion Square, which will be a sports village and public plaza that will include the public ice rink, as well as practice facilities that can be utilized by youth and amateur hockey and skating leagues.

The idea behind the project is to capitalize on Las Vegas’ rising profile as a sports destination following the recent influx of transplanted major sports teams and events to the region, including NHL, NFL, MLB, and Formula One racing.

Agora Realty CEO Cary Lefton said in a statement that the extensive sporting attractions at Champion Square would appeal to both the local Las Vegas community as well as traveling sports teams, and stands to be a “lucrative traffic generator” for surrounding restaurants and businesses.

From our longstanding work with North Las Vegas we knew that the city needed more housing and community services for its growing population,” he said. “We also recognized an opportunity to leverage the draw of Las Vegas’ fast-growing sports industry.”

Oakland Athletics

Construction of Oakland A’s Vegas Ballpark Slated to Begin April 2025 for January 2028 Completion Date

LAS VEGAS, NV – During a presentation last week to the Las Vegas Stadium Authority by Mortenson-McCarthy, the construction manager of the Oakland Athletics, revealed that work is slated to begin on the Major League Baseball team’s upcoming Las Vegas ballpark in April 2025 for an anticipated completion date of April 2028 – just in time for that year’s regular season. 

The presentation laid out the entire timeline for the project, including plans to incorporate a variety of local vendors throughout the ballpark’s construction, with 15 percent of the work expected to be carried out by local and minority-owned businesses. Mortenson-McCarthy also noted that they intend to employ a diverse workforce, stating that 51 percent of the total construction hours for the project will utilize a combination of female, minority, veteran, and disabled workers. 

It was also revealed at the presentation that law firms have been retained by the A’s to draw up both a stadium lease as well as a community benefits agreement, covering a financial commitment from the A’s to the local Las Vegas community in addition to promises of paying livable wages to ballpark employees, diversity requirements, educational programs, community engagement, and more. 

The new home of the Athletics’ will be on a nine-acre plot of land situated on the 35-acre site of the Tropicana, located at Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue. Currently, the plan is to demolish the Tropicana to make way for the A’s stadium and to build a new 1,500-room hotel and casino on the remaining acreage. 

The A’s home stadium – the project is expected to cost a total of $1.5 billion – is slated to take the form of a 35,000-seat retractable roof stadium, with the project currently pending the passing of state legislation for public financing. Once the monies are obtained, full development of the ballpark will be in the hands of Bally’s. 

The A’s relocation from Oakland to Las Vegas still needs to be approved by MLB team owners, who are expected to vote on the matter next month.

Mortenson | McCarthy brings an exceptional level of expertise and experience to our project,” he said. “Their focus on innovation, safety and efficiency makes them the best in their field.” 

Despite the announcement, hiring of Mortenson | McCarthy still must be approved by the Las Vegas Stadium Authority before the deal can go down, although that is considered merely a formality.

Construction of Athletics’ New Las Vegas Stadium Will Create 5,000 “Good-Paying” Jobs, Union Says

LAS VEGAS, NV – Following a committee hearing on Monday for a bill for the proposed Las Vegas ballpark stadium of the Athletics – which recently announced they would be transplanting themselves from California to Nevada – the Southern Nevada Building Trades Union (SNBTU) has publicly shown their support for the project, saying that the construction of the famed MLB team’s new home would benefit the local economy by generating over 5,000 new jobs

The A’s recently reached an agreement with Bally’s Corp. to purchase a nine-acre plot of land currently occupied by the Tropicana Resort & Casino, where they will now construct their new stadium. Currently, the plan is to demolish the Tropicana to make way for the A’s stadium – which is slated to take the form of a 35,000-seat retractable roof venue – and to build a new 1,500-room hotel and casino on the remaining acreage.  

SNBTU has launched a new campaign to support the A’s move to Las Vegas, dubbed “A+ Jobs,” which will “educate the community about the positive impact building the stadium would have on Las Vegas.”  

The reason for SNBTU’s support of the A’s move, according to the organization’s Secretary-Treasurer, Vince Saavedra, is that the development of their stadium will allow “SNBTU to expand its roster to put the construction trades to work.” 

Vegas has proven itself as a major-league sports town, so it makes sense for us to add a Major League Baseball team,” he said. “Our roster of skilled construction workers have always built the biggest projects in Vegas and we’re ready to step up to the plate to build the stadium. By showcasing our members on baseball cards, we are highlighting the impact this project will have on jobs and working families in our community.” 

SNBTU noted that the development of the A’s new stadium will create over 5,000 “good-paying” jobs for individuals in numerous trades, including ironworkers, bricklayers, laborers, electricians and more; in addition, its construction would also spur new investment opportunities in Las Vegas, in addition to increasing tourism as well. 

The stadium is projected to spur billions in new investment and bring 400,000 additional visitors to the area each year – all without raising taxes,” Saavedra said.

Oakland Athletics

Oakland Athletics Ditch Previous Las Vegas Ballpark Deal, Sign New Agreement for Tropicana Site

LAS VEGAS, NV – After initially announcing a deal in late April to purchase property off of the Las Vegas Strip in order to construct a $1.5 billion ballpark, the Oakland Athletics MLB team – who are following the NFL Raiders in uprooting and transplanting themselves from California to Nevada – reversed themselves this week and announced they have instead reached an agreement with Bally’s Corp. to purchase land currently occupied by the Tropicana Resort & Casino, where they will now construct their new baseball stadium.

The new home of the Athletics’ will now be on a nine-acre plot of land situated on the 35-acre Tropicana site, located at Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue. Currently, the plan is to demolish the Tropicana to make way for the A’s stadium and to build a new 1,500-room hotel and casino on the remaining acreage.

The A’s home stadium is slated to take the form of a 35,000-seat retractable roof stadium, with the project currently pending the passing of state legislation for public financing. Once the monies are obtained, full development of the ballpark would be in the hands of Bally’s, according to the company’s president, George Papanier.

“We are honored to have been selected to partner with the Oakland Athletics on this monumental step in helping to bring Major League Baseball to the great city of Las Vegas,” Papanier said. “To be a part of the once in a generation opportunity of having a professional baseball team located within a short walk of the Las Vegas Strip.”

Papanier noted that the development of the A’s new stadium would be steeped in the long-standing history of the site on to which it is to be erected, becoming an iconic landmark in the city of Las Vegas on par with the Tropicana itself.

“The Tropicana has been a landmark of Las Vegas for generations, and this development will enhance this iconic site for generations to come.” he said. “We are committed to ensuring that the development and ballpark built in its place will become a new landmark, paying homage to the iconic history and global appeal of Las Vegas and its nearly 50 million visitors a year.”

The project is expected to cost $1.5 billion.
