Sand and confetti fly for the Genting Group ceremonial groundbreaking to mark the start of construction of Resorts World Las Vegas.

Just one day after the closing of the legendary Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas will see its first major Strip development in nearly a decade as Genting Group’s Resorts World Las Vegas begins development of its new resort and casino. Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, Clark County Commissioners, and local dignitaries broke ground and launched a new era of development near the north end of the famed Las Vegas Strip on May 5, 2015.
