Las Vegas’ Red Rock Resort to Expand

Red Rock Resort, a Station Casinos property in Las Vegas, is undergoing its most extensive and expensive renovation since it opened in April 2006. The $925 million overhaul is opening in phases and will be complete by October.

Adds shopping center, restaurants

As part of its massive $925 million expansion project, Station Casinos’ Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas is adding a 1.6 million-square-foot shopping center, a restaurant district with patio seating, and a new parking area. An outdoor pedestrian walkway will link four new eateries.

“This is a way to provide more amenities and diversify the offerings to our guests in Summerlin,” Station CFO Marc Falcone told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We’re going to address the guest rooms over the next few years.”

Red Rock is located in the middle of Summerlin Centre, a mall that suspended construction in 2008 due to the recession and a bankruptcy filing by developer General Growth Properties dealt with a bankruptcy filing. Construction resumed last year. The Shops at Summerlin will open in October.

Kevin Orrock, of the Howard Hughes Corp., a GGP offshoot that is developing the mall, said Summerlin expects to attract 25,000 to 35,000 customers each day. “There is a great connectivity and a symbiotic relationship between the two properties,” he said. “We understand the advantage of having a great neighbor across the street.”
