The North Las Vegas Planning Commission on Wednesday approved re-zoning plans for a new development replacing where Station Casinos' Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho casinos once stood. The project is estimated to employ 925 people and developers plan to break ground in early 2024, hoping for completion sometime in 2025.
Real estate developer Cary Lefton is looking to build a massive shopping, entertainment and housing complex in the vacant lot, off Rancho Drive and west of Lake Mead Boulevard, reports KTNV. The mixed-use neighborhood will be called Hylo Park.
Agora Realty and Management, which is currently in escrow to buy the land from Station Casinos, submitted a request to commissioners to re-zone the property from resort-commercial to a residential mixed-used classification, which on Wednesday was signed off.
The development will be carried out in three phases. The commercial side, to be concentrated on the north and west side of the site, will feature "a mix of experiential commercial, recreation, hotel, retail, restaurant, and multifamily uses." The residential side, which will be focused on the southeast corner of the site, will contain up to 665 units, reports Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Plans for the site also include a new hotel with at least 150 rooms, two new ice rinks (the remaining one will be turned into a field house), outdoor entertainment, a convenience store, and a child care center. It will also feature up to 100,000 square feet of professional office space and 450,000 square feet total of other commercial and restaurant space.
Fiesta Rancho and Texas Station never reopened after the pandemic and were demolished over the past year. Station Casinos also tore down Fiesta Henderson last year. The Henderson City Council approved the city’s purchase of the 35-acre property for $32 million in December, with plans to build a recreational sports complex.
