Wynn?s lagoon project would use less water than 18-hole golf course | Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://m.reviewjournal.com/business/wynn-s-lagoon-project-would-use-less-water-18-hole-golf-course)


This is pretty cool. Steve Wynn has always been a visionary.

(Side note: do NOT copy and paste the article, click it, LV RJ has sued websites in the past for that.)

Shouldn't this be in the "other cities" subforum?

Seems to be a clear response to the Alon project.

My bad, mods can move it.

So he is getting rid of the golf course? Looks like some of it will still be there but what's the point. I've never been able to get my schedule worked out to go play there. Better get it in gear before it get razed

Theme resorts are staging a comeback in Las Vegas too. I drive to Vegas all the time mainly as an excuse to get away but I love the strip. A lot of cougars there ;)

"Mars World" simulation to bring Mars to Las Vegas (http://www.technobuffalo.com/2016/03/30/mars-world-simulation-to-bring-mars-to-las-vegas/)

I like this. I've always though a space themed resort would be cool. I was sad when the Moon thing didn't happen.

Raiders Stadium faces a huge problem now that Adelson has pulled out and it seems for good reason though I would love to see this stadium built in LV and SD get MLS. SD submitted for MLS anyways.

Goldman Sachs can save it, let's see if they do.

I'd love an NFL team in Las Vegas. That would be awesome.

GS backed out I believe saying that if the Adelson funding isn't there it won't happen. :(

Raiders better go back to Adelson with tail between their legs

Some great news for Las Vegas strip. Passenger rail likely following the desert wind route that was abandoned. Raiders Stadium is getting close to being finished. Resorts World is making good progress but has changed directionó I just hope they still plan on the giant panda exhibit. Tropicana interchange is going to be expanded and rebuilt with the first phase adding an overpass and extending Valley View over the train tracks.

Las Vegas boulevard is set to be completely rebuilt and expanded in several areas.

Lots of good stuff happening in Las Vegas with project Neon wrapped up they are making changes to the HOV lane access which honestly I like the original express lane setup more. I also donít think 24 hour HOV lane enforcement is needed in Vegas.

A couple wish list projects for the Vegas area I have is seeing I-515 rebuilt and expanded. I would also like to see the proposed elevated roads built to McCarran, and subterranean heavy rail going from the airport to Fremont. I also wouldnít mind seeing monorail expanded even though if HRT was built under the boulevard it would be a bit redundant.

Iíd post pictures and more information but Iím on my phone and formatting is a pain.

^ Also, posts about the Raiders stadium demise back in ‘17 have not aged well - it’s going to be pretty cool! I’ll head that way for at least one game a season and most likely 2 (and not a Raiders fan).

I’m happy the stadium went through! I was very worried it wasn’t to happen. I’m happy I was wrong here.

Isnt Elon Musk's Boring Co. doing some sort of short tunnel project in the Strip?

There were good reasons for the doubt. I think this will be awesome for LV. We normally have gone 1-2 times a year, but have trailed off last couple of years. This will virtually guarantee one trip in the fall/winter to take in a game. I’d love to see the Cowboys, Browns, Cardinals among others.

I canít help but wonder whose up next for a new stadium. SF chase center is beautiful. We have Rams and Raiders set to open soon. For MLB the Anaheim Angeles(I know technically Los Angeles but f@ck that) just signed a commitment to staying in Anaheim after mulling a move to Long Beach. I wonder if we will get a new stadium and development around it.

OKC is poised to build and MLS stadium or one that can be expanded. Iím unsure of any others UC or planned.

My only concern with raiders stadium is access and I wish they would have built a special flyover off I-15 for this to ease the demand on local streets. Streets like frank Sinatra dr come to a standstill during knights games.

Was talking with someone when I was there last and they are only building about 10K parking spots for the stadium. Trying to get a deal together to use Mandalay Bay parking across the interstate and build a pedestrian bridge. If that doesn't work then people will have to be bused in.

People need to set their expectations now on tickets to these games now. It will probably be minimum $200-300 just to get in. It will be just like the Knights games. Feed on opposing fan bases where there are zero deals to be had, even after the games have started.

Been following Resorts World for years now. Pretty disappointed on the final design. Leaves a lot to be desired. Will def check it out when it opens though.

Was there last week. That new Resorts World is reallllly ugly. I think they open next summer. Circa looks awesome though. We missed the opening by a few days.

I was there during Circas opening but didn’t check it out. I’ll probably drive to Vegas tomorrow and hit it up. I know the hotel isn’t open yet.
