    The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is nearing a $120 million deal to sell 10 acres of Strip-front property where the Riviera stood. The LVCVA’s board of directors on Tuesday is scheduled to consider selling the land at the southeast corner of Las Vegas and Elvis Presley boulevards, across from the long-stalled former Fontainebleau tower, to CB Investment SpA.


    Terms of the LVCVA deal call for the north Strip property to be developed as a resort or hotel and prohibit any other use. The convention authority also would have the right of first refusal if CB Investment wants to resell the land. Terms of the sale require the company to begin construction by Jan. 1, 2031, with completion by Jan. 1, 2034.


    The land sale is expected to close by June 30, but that could be pushed to Oct. 31, 2022, if the buyer pays $3 million to extend it. The LVCVA also retained the right to use the land, for a fee, until April 30, 2023, for parking, outdoor exhibitions or access to a planned connection at Resorts World for the Boring Co.’s underground-transit system.

    Las Vegas seems to be going crazy with the new resort announcements recently.

    American luxury hotels operator Dream Hotel Group has reportedly been granted official permission to bring its latest property to an around five-acre parcel of land located at the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip.

    According to a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper, the New York-headquartered firm received the green light from the Clark County Commission on Wednesday afternoon to begin building a Dream-branded development that is to sit adjacent to the Nevada city’s McCarran International Airport. The source detailed that this work could now start from as soon as April before the finished 527-room resort hotel opens approximately two years later also offering a pool deck and a covered parking garage.


    The newspaper reported that Dream Hotel Group collected the Clark County Commission’s consent for the $600 million property via a six-to-one vote only after it had agreed to make several changes to the layout of the envisioned 20-story venue. These alterations may purportedly end up costing the developer an extra $10 million but were instigated following criticism that the location of the enterprise next to the nation’s seventh busiest airport could lead to several ‘safety and security concerns.’

    Station Casinos received approval from county officials Wednesday to move forward with its much-anticipated plan to build a resort in the southwest valley.

    The Clark County Commission greenlighted the company’s proposal to build a 211-room hotel with an 83,178-square-foot casino on South Durango Drive just south of the 215 Beltway. Station plans to break ground on its new project — Durango, a Station Casinos Resort — early next year, according to the company.








    They say the resort will focus on gaming, have little competition within 5 square miles and cater to the southwest valley’s growing population. “Once again Stations, as a true locals casino, is coming to the rescue in the southwest, I’d say, by providing them a place where they can dine, where they can go hang out,” Bob Finch, chief operating officer for Station parent company Red Rock Resorts, told the Review-Journal.

    The company intends to release a cost estimate for Durango at its third-quarter earnings call with investors this fall. Finch estimated Durango would open late 2023.
    Plans submitted to the county note two phases of construction. The first phase would have a single 216-foot-tall hotel tower; water features; a parking structure; four restaurants and beverage stops; a “state-of-the-art” race and sportsbook; 20,000 square feet of meeting and convention space; a pool space with private cabanas and an event lawn; and electric vehicle charging stations.

    Ibiza’s legendary Café del Mar has announced it will open an international outlet in Abu Dhabi, The ‘Home of Chill’ has been in Ibiza for over 40 years, famed for its unrivalled sunset views and intertwining relationship with laidback music. The original beach club even has its own ‘Chill House’ music label and line of merchandise.

    The Abu Dhabi branch looks to capture this same spirit. Nestled along the Yas Bay Waterfront, the venue will brush shoulders with the likes of Buddha-Bar and Lock, Stock & Barrel. The café will be found at Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island.


    The venue will be managed by Capital Motion, the same management firm behind the likes of Siddharta Lounge and Caramel.

    The Finnish Pavilion for Expo 2020 Dubai showcases the country's deep connection with nature and sustainability, contributing to its high quality of life. Titled "Snow Cape", the pavilion designed by JKMM Architects subtly evokes Finnish natural settings through materiality and atmosphere while embodying the principles of circular economy championed by the Nordic country. The structure with its tent-like entrance creates a point of commonality, reminding of Finland's nomadic heritage, as well as the Arabic text.




    The circular economy imperatives have informed the construction of the pavilion, for which the majority of the materials were sourced locally, thus reducing the environmental impact of transportation. Moreover, the design took into consideration the structure's life after the Expo, with the project set to remain in place for an additional five years, after which it will be dismantled and its materials recycled or reused.

    A veteran gaming executive with a long career at MGM Resorts will now lead the Palms in Las Vegas as it transitions to its new tribal owner.

    The San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority announced Wednesday that Cynthia Kiser Murphey will serve as general manager for the off-Strip casino resort. Kiser Murphy has been the CEO of a benefits fund since 2020. Prior to that, she was president and chief operating officer for New York-New York from 2008 to 2020 and held other executive roles with MGM since 1992.
    The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians reached an agreement to buy the Palms from Station Casinos for $650 million back in May. Executives have said the deal is expected to close by the end of the year.

    Latisha Casis, the chairperson for the tribe's Gaming and Hospitality Authority, said it was important to find a leader for the Palms who shared the board's values, put people first and is committed to diversity.

    Good news for Macau it seems...

    In Macau and aggregated gross gaming revenues for August reportedly increased by some 234% year-on-year to top $554.49 million despite the disruption associated with a minor outbreak of coronavirus in neighboring China.
    According to a report from Inside Asian Gaming citing official information from the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau regulator, the figure for the 31-day period represented the seventh consecutive month of year-on-year improvements and took the former Portuguese enclave’s associated eight-month tally up by 70.1% to approximately $7.72 billion.

    Finally some professional images of the resort!

    This new site has popped up recently and, I believe, is selling the residences. They list Ritz-Carlton as a partner so there is something odd here in terms of who has built and who is operating the resort (it's not an unusual relationship but not what was sold early on in the project) but it seems legit.

    I know the translation isn't always great but that seems an odd thing to say also...
    Located at the southern end of Tamuda Bay, the site of the future Ritz-Carlton extends around a lake, part of which, wild and rebellious, constitutes a nature reserve for many migratory birds.
