"We started this as a themed project on a journey to somewhere, and of course that journey is to Asia and to China. But, be that as it may, a gigantic resort the size that we build here in Las Vegas doesn’t necessarily look good if you do a set of faux finishes – which is not what the owner wanted, by the way. So our journey takes us to old China, to historic China, to 500-year-old China, but you pass through a gate to modern China, and that’s what the curved glass buildings are about."
"We all know that Asian clientele is increasing, the visitation here in Las Vegas, and we all know Asian visits to the United States on the whole are up. And we also know that as China and Asia are becoming richer and richer countries, more people are getting passports, more people want to see the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, Hollywood, San Francisco and of course, Las Vegas is on that stop. And this resort will cater to everyone and yet it will have a distinctly Asian flair."
"I really think the announcement today will show the seriousness of a foreign operator, the largest foreign operator, coming here, and the confidence that he has shown by investing this large amount of money and committing to building this building. You’re going to see a change in confidence. And you will see the next cycle of great casino design, great new buildings, and renovations and expansions."
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
