A few days ago, the Genting Group purchased the unfinished Echelon property and stand ready to build a $2-7 Billion dollar Strip hotel / casino complex. It will take approximately 3 years to complete and will add 3,500 more hotel rooms. The new project will be called World Las Vegas and cater to the middle income Asian market. The Genting Group is a company based in Malaysia and has casino / hotel operations in Asia, United Kingdom, and several other international markets.  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

I dont like foreign companies buying into the Vegas market.   Glen Tolliver

My first thought is that a new casino where the unfinished echelon project is will be good for las vegas, but will another 3,500 rooms will that hurt the market.  George J.   Tulsa OK

New casinos in Vegas is always good, but best news is more rooms means better deals for us visitors.  Build it faster.  Jane Diller.  Illinois

I think it is fantastic that Genting Group bought the Echelon property. We the people are tired of looking at all that metal standing there and it looks terrible. I have been coming to Vegas the past fifteen years at least five times a year and tired at looking at that eye sore.  Ruth Stolz   Cudahy, WI

Any time that there is more competition anywhere, that is usually a boon to the consumer. So, sure, why not add new rooms to the market which should give they buyer a better opportunity to get better prices.  Kip Abelson  Salem, MA

I think it's great! Asia is becoming more of the center of the world, and Las Vegas should reflect this.  Jim Douglas   Ventura, California

Interesting, but does not interest me. I am sure they know the asian market better than I do. I wish them luck.  Bill Mandich  London, ON Canada

I think it was great it was sold now they need to do something with that harmon tower tragedy near the strip  wendy garner  Henderson NV

I think it is grand. When they get done with Echelon they can buy Fontainebleau and finish it. Maybe then the bean counters will loosen the slots to try to fill all of the rooms. Priceless.  Howard   Indianapolis  usa

What is this going to do to the asian market for the other casinos. Nice to have the complex completed. Maybe the compatition will make the other Casinos loosen the slots again. Last two trips to Vegas in 2012 was real bad. I love Las Vegas and it is the only place I take several days vacation to visit. Hope the new complex is people friendly for all and hope it does not have the asian look like the Imperal Palace did.  Tom  Atlanta
