LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
Is Las Vegas back?
Plans for another brand-new resort on the north end of the Strip certainly make it appear so.
FOX5 was the very first to discover a preliminary application sent to Clark County for construction of exactly what would be called Alon Las Vegas.
It would be improved the website of the old Frontier, which was imploded November 13, 2007, at the height of the boom in Las Vegas, just before its bust.
The same 35 acres located alongside the upcoming Resorts World and throughout the street from the Wynn will continue the resurrection of the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard.
The pre-application was submitted May 28.
Amongst the early renderings included in the application are plans for two towers that would have a total of 1,100 spaces.
Among those towers would be about half the height of the Trump tower, located directly to the west.
There was also a full layout of the apartment, including where the water function, bar and rental properties would be located.
A cover sheet addressed to the county briefly described Alon’s information, most notably the 4,500 tasks it expects to develop.
The main investor would be Crown Resorts, based in Australia and possessed by James Packer, billionaire boyfriend of Mariah Carey.
When the developers found out that FOX5 obtained these early construction plans, they connected to us.
Andrew Pascal, previous president of Wynn Las Vegas, did not wish to be taped, but did wish to be clear these information are very initial.
Pascal stated if everything goes to strategy, building crews could put a shovel in the ground early next year.
Likewise, according to the pre-application, Alon will be the name of a new hospitality business with plans to construct luxury resorts in other locations.
The Las Vegas location would be its flagship.
