The Ball is Rolling on Durango Resort and Casino

Building permit applications have begun to roll in, including one for a steak house with an $8M price tag

Southwest Vegas will soon be home to another casino resort from Station Casinos. The casino giant has been planning a resort on Durango Dr for a long time, having bought the land back in 2000, a whole world ago. After several fits and starts in those intervening years, the resort is now truly a go. According to coverage published in Eater Las Vegas last year, this is thanks, at least in part, to Station’s sale of The Palms to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians for $650 million.

A food hall is planned for the resort with fast-casual eateries, along with four different restaurants (all featuring patios), a lobby bar, and a sportsbook—to say nothing of the pool with private cabanas.

The project is now doubly confirmed as a go, as building permits have begun to roll in, submitted to Clark County earlier this week. The permits provide scarce but interesting information. The food hall, for example, will house ten different stalls, according to one permit. And while a permit filed for work on one of the resort’s restaurants omits to give it a name, it does specify that it is a steak house, and it shows a considerable contract valuation for construction: $8,371,828.

What Now Las Vegas was unable to reach a representative for the Durango Station project for immediate comment on Thursday. Durango Resort and Casino is expected to open in 2023.
