County zoning panel OKs permits for Treasure Island shopping mall

The Clark County Zoning Commission on Wednesday unanimously approved permits for a three-story shopping mall addition to Treasure Island.

The 46,200-square-foot addition to the Strip resort will be on a 19.5-acre site at the southwest corner of Las Vegas Boulevard South and Spring Mountain Road.

Its uses include a pharmacy, stores and restaurants, along with a shopping center with an automobile showroom.

The resort’s lagoon area will be reduced in size for the addition, but the pirate ship isn’t going away. Instead, the track the ship runs on will be shortened to free up room for pedestrians and retail space.

The shopping center will be slightly more than 70 feet high, with individual tenant spaces.

Pedestrians will be able to enter the shopping addition from Las Vegas Boulevard South and from within the resort.
