Sewage and Electrical being installed as Resorts World underground construction continues.
Although there have been false reports of nothing happening or “whispers” of “giving up” at Resorts World (perhaps that person should stick to entertainment gossip), that simply isn’t the case. We here at Vegas Bright have a lot of street-cred when it comes to reporting on Las Vegas construction projects, see for yourself. Continuing in that tradition, our Eye in the Sky has been keeping track of things at the future resort site (as it isn’t exactly a resort yet).
Last we looked at Resorts World construction; electrical trucks were on site. Recently electrical and sewage pipes have been arriving on site in the masses, with work underway in the trenches of the property. They’ve also erected another staircase and an elevator shaft for construction purposes.
There’s definitely momentum on the construction site. Now, if Resorts World actually opens is another thing entirely, but I try to remain optimistic about new hotel/casino goodness on the part of the strip that could really use it. Maybe a little too optimistic at times, albeit.
When *coughs* If Resorts World opens, and after all its construction phases, it will have a 175,000-square-foot casino and four towers with a combined 6,583 rooms. For the opening, I’m not certain they are shooting for four towers, they may add on additional towers after opening as it might make sense to start on a smaller scale.
UPDATE: I was right. Resorts World expected opening 2020. 3,000 rooms. Two towers, staggered openings. https://www.reviewjournal.com/business/casinos-gaming/resorts-world-las-vegas-chooses-casino-veteran-as-president/
