Caesars Palace - Newest tower - Octavius
Caesars Palace Casino’s newest tower, Octavius, with 650+ rooms is the
sixth tower of the casino has hit a serious snag in completion. The mid
summer 2009 opening will occur for the
convention area and pool area, however the tower with the 650-rooms will
not open until there is a demand for additional casino rooms within Las
Vegas. The $1 billion dollar expansion is just another casualty of bad
worldwide economics. No date release for complete tower opening.
Located between Monte Carlo and the Bellagio on the Las
Vegas Strip. This is the largest (most expensive) private
construction project in the history of the world! A proposed $9
billion and about six years will develop this modern marvel.
Numerous condos, time share units, one casino and dozens of restaurants
will be created. Estimated fully completion date is 2011, however some
of the project will open late 2009. This mammoth project
is owned by MGM Grand Casino.
The old Stardust has been closed and the Westward Ho and is in the process of making way for
a $4.4 billion complete rebuilding of this prime real estate location
into a new casino resort called, Echelon Place.
Completion was scheduled on late 2010, HOWEVER, the project has now been
put on hold for a minimum of a year and possible longer.
The Fountainbleau Casino is scheduled to be a $2.9 billion project which
features 3,812 rooms inside a 725-foot, 63-story complex. Expected
to open in late 2009, however the project is now on hold, looking for
more financing or a new owner. The Fountainbleau is located just south of the
Sahara Casino and north of the Riviera Casino, on the same side of the
famous Las Vegas Strip. This is the property the old El Rancho Casino and the Algiers
casinos were originally occupied.
New York Plaza Las Vegas
Yes, this may be a name conflict with the existing Plaza Casino in
downtown Las Vegas. The famous New York Plaza is trying to build their
Las Vegas version. Sitting on the old Frontier Casino 34.5 acre
property, the new casino was originally scheduled to open in 2011.
Might be a light difficult since they have not turned one shovel of dirt
yet? Looks like another Vegas project that looks good on paper but
never gets built.
Venetian Casino - High rise strip condominium
In November 2008 the Las Vegas Sands Corp., parent company of the
Venetian Casino announced they stopped construction on their $600
million dollar condominium tower. No date has been issued from
