Crown Resorts To Build On Site Of New Frontier



Overnight another big deal for a new resort on the Las Vegas Strip was announced.

Australian billionaire James Packer announced that his company Crown Resorts will build a new casino on the site of the New Frontier.

An Israeli-based consortium paid more than $1 billion for that same land before the crash.

Crown and its partners are now taking advantage of that mistake because they were able to buy the land for much less than the Israelis paid.

So when can we expect construction to begin? And what kind of resort will it be?
