Genting Group, the developer of the Resorts World Las Vegas, has released new details about the $4.3 billion Asian theme integrated resort. Genting conceived the project in March 2013, which would be one of its kinds in the City of Sin. The resort will feature Chinese palatial architecture, the first property on the Strip to be Asian themed.
However, the Resort World developers are trying to incorporate other aspects to appeal to all kinds of demographics. In their update, Genting revealed that the property will be inspired by Asian furnishing, but will include both traditional and modern architecture. The property is to add gaming venues with the latest technology and world-class guest houses.
Resort World is being built on 88 acre site which is situated north of the Strip between Encore property, Phil Ruin’s Treasure Island, and Trump international.
Newest Strip Resort
According to Casino.org, Las Vegas hasn’t seen a new casino resort open since the entry of Cosmopolitan in 2010. The $4.3 billion Resort World will be the most expensive development on the Strip. Currently, Blackstone owned Cosmopolitans is the most treasured property on the Strip valued at $4.18 billion. The group has agreed to acquire Bellagio from MGM at $4.25 billion.
Resort World will have 110,000 square feet of the casino floor, which will incorporate slots, table games, private gaming salon, poker room, and high-limit gaming areas. An additional of 14,000 square feet space will be an entertainment zone plus a sportsbook house.
Resort World will also include a hotel with 3,500 rooms plus a luxury suite, villas, penthouses, open balconies, and even a sky casino. Resorts World Las Vegas president Scott Sibella says the goal is to redefine Las Vegas hotel standard.
Another 350.000 square feet will be set aside for convection space, pools, and clubs. Resorts World will amaze Las Vegas visitors by a 50 feet diameter video globe, which will display more than 6,000 square feet of LED content. On the West Tower, 100,000 feet LED will be set, one of the largest in the world.
Sibella believes the property will be a renaissance on the northern part of the Strip. He is, however, optimistic about the future of Circus Circus in the hands of Ruffin. The project is expected to open in 2022.
