Resorts World Las Vegas, situated on the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip, has unveiled plans to add a large convention center to its offerings. The company has submitted its proposal to Clark County, and the Winchester Town Board recently convened to discuss the development.
According to the submitted plans, the convention center will be situated on the northwest corner of the property, integrated into an unfinished section of the original project. Boasting a total area of 370,000 square feet, the convention center will offer over 255,000 square feet dedicated to convention and public space.
“This area of Resorts World has been used for temporary events and a partially built structure in the past,” the agenda document, retrieved by Las Vegas Review-Journal, states. “The existing structure located along Resorts World Drive will be integrated into the Convention Center design.”
Resorts World specifies that the convention center will feature 40, 85 and 145 foot high roof planes and there will be a promenade linking the hotel to the convention center. In terms of floor planning, the first floor will have 109,000 square feet of expo hall space, and level three, the top level, will have ballroom space and a pantry.
In a statement, the company said: “As the newest integrated resort in the most dynamic part of the Las Vegas Strip, Resorts World Las Vegas is moving forward with a number of significant new projects to enhance our guest amenities and experience, including the expansion of our convention, meeting, and events center.”
The proposed location of the convention center lies on the western side of S. Las Vegas Boulevard, E. Sammy Davis Jr. Drive, and the northern side of Genting Boulevard. To advance the project, Clark County will review the plans and forward all relevant planning and zoning matters to the Board of County Commissioner’s Zoning Commission or the Clark County Planning Commission for final action.
The resort hotel opened in June of 2021 and is located at 3000 S. Las Vegas Blvd., where Stardust used to reside.
