With Resorts World, Macau Comes to Vegas in Vegas Seven

In this week’s Green Felt Journal, I take a look at how the proposed Resorts World Las Vegas differs from the project it replaced:

When Resorts World Las Vegas rises from the abandoned husk of Echelon on the north Strip, it will be very different from what Echelon would have been. And the differences tell us a lot about where Las Vegas has gone in the six years since the property’s 2007 groundbreaking.

I look forward to seeing Resorts World take shape. It may define post-Macau, post-recession Las Vegas.

  1. Dave Schwartz is so right about how the Resorts World will define the post-recession Vegas. It will in fact be the single most important factor in bringing Vegas out of the recession. There is no other project on tap that approaches the magnitude of the Genting vision. Genting is flush with capital and ready to infuse it into the local economy. The new construction will be tat amount to building a small city and that will certainly move the unemployment meter in Nevada a point or so. The foreign tourists this resort will attract might well be those who would have travelled elsewhere to spend their money. Vegas has moved back on a winning streak.
