Las Vegas Sands Corp. is close to having the first phase of a $1 billion, 200,000-square-foot resort at the former MGM Grand in the city’s southwest.
It plans to open the resort on Nov. 3.
The casino is one of the largest in Las Vegas and was expected to open in 2019, according to the company.
The resort will have about 1,200 rooms and will include a casino, a lounge and an entertainment complex, according an announcement.
Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson said the resort will be a catalyst for economic growth in Las Angeles, San Diego and other parts of the country.
“This is going to be an economic development opportunity for Las Vegas, but also, it’s going to bring more jobs and jobs for Las Angles people,” he said.
The city of Las Vegas also announced plans last year to build a convention center at the site of the old MGM Grand.
