Construction activity on the site of Resorts World Las Vegas was evident on Friday. Resorts World Las Vegas is on the site where the Stardust once stood. That hotel was imploded in 2007. In an interview with the Review-Journal earlier this year, Edward Farrell, president of Resorts World Las Vegas, said that 1,000 construction workers would be onsite by 2018. Once the $4 billion, 3,000-room resort opens in 2020, it will hire 3,000 union employees to operate the modern Chinese-themed resort. The property is being developed by Malaysia-based Genting Group. Genting bought the 87-acre site on Las Vegas Boulevard from Boyd Gaming Corp., acquiring not only a massive spread on the north Strip but also the remains of Boyd’s mothballed resort project there, Echelon.
