Las Vegas Sands Moves Closer to Bahamas Casino Reality

Big news for casino enthusiasts in the Bahamas! Las Vegas Sands has taken another significant stride towards establishing a brand-new casino. Fresh land use plans submitted to the Town of Hempstead highlight their grand vision for the $4-billion casino-resort located at the Nassau Coliseum. But there’s a catch. The current area requires a transformation into a new Uniondale hospitality zone. In simpler terms, it needs rezoning.

Las Vegas Sands intends to join the sprawling 72-acre Nassau Hub with the Long Island Marriott hotel’s grounds. However, the current zoning throws a curveball. It prohibits casinos on the Coliseum’s site, forcing the company to relook at factors like height, parking, and setbacks.

So, what comes next? The ball starts rolling with the state’s environmental assessment, known as SEQR. It includes an extensive draft about the environmental effects, an in-depth scoping procedure, and a final report awaiting the town’s green light.

Here is what Sands envisions:

  • Twin hotels boasting 1,670 rooms, complemented by pools, a top-notch spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center
  • A massive 393,726 square-foot gambling zone
  • A sprawling 147,929 square-foot dining area
  • An extensive 213,000 square-foot area dedicated to meetings and conferences
  • An impressive live show arena seating 4,500 enthusiasts
  • A vibrant 60,000 square-foot zone for public attractions
  • Trio of spacious parking facilities
  • Allocated zones for essential support and utility services

As for the project’s fate? Greg Blower, Hempstead Town’s voice, assured everyone of a “comprehensive review.” Yet, there’s a slight mystery. Don Clavin, the Republican Hempstead Town Supervisor up for reelection come November, remains tight-lipped about his stance on the Sands’ venture. Attempts to get his comments have been met with silence.

Lastly, the ambitious blueprint from Sands suggests a union of the Coliseum and Marriott properties, and it has been christened the “Mitchel Field Integrated Resort District.”
