Plans Emerge For New Casino-Hotel On Site Of New Frontier
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Initial plans for a casino-hotel that may rise from the Las Vegas Strip site where the New Frontier once stood show two hotel towers with 1,100 rooms and a 126,000-square-foot water feature inside.
The plans were submitted to Clark County on May 28 by the owners of the 35-acre parcel across from the Wynn and Encore resorts.
The resort is being called Alon Las Vegas and is born of a partnership between billionaire Australian hotelier James Packer and former Wynn Las Vegas President Andrew Pascal.
The New Frontier was imploded in November 2007. Packer and Pascal bought a controlling stake in the site in 2014.
The plans are in the pre-submittal phase so details may change. Plans describe shops facing the Strip and a nightclub, theater and meeting space inside.
