Olympia Gaming, the gambling arm of the Olympia Company, teased in February that construction was imminent. The company had planned to start construction at some point in 2020, but put the plan on hold due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the closure of non-essential businesses in Nevada.
As state lawmakers began to gradually ease the measures, the developer finally decided it was a good time to get the project going.
In response to Wednesday’s milestone, Olympia Gaming Chief Operating Officer De Cush Graham said in a statement that after successfully completing phase 1 of the plan with Hilton’s Hampton In & Suite and Marriott’s Residential In launch, they are “now in a position to start the next phase of development.”
The official also thanked Sparks and Red Development for “helping make this project a reality” and explained more specifically their plans to “build a project that the community can proudly call their project.” 온라인경마
Nevada-based casino developer and operator Olympia Gaming held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday at Sparks’ Legend Bay Casino, a project that has been running for more than a decade.
The gambling house is expected to open in mid-2022. In addition to slot machines and table games, it will also have sports betting facilities as well as dining and entertainment experiences.
Real estate officials told local news outlets the new casino would be fully integrated into the existing The Outlet at Legends shopping and entertainment center. The entire property is located right next to Interstate 80 and is approximately six miles from Sparks’ Reno-Taho International Airport.
