Station Casinos Plans Expansion for Durango Resort

Red Rock Resorts subsidiary Station Casinos is requesting permission to grow its newly established Durango Resort in the southwest valley. A new parking structure and an enlarged gaming area are two of the development proposals, which are included in an item on the July 3 Clark County Zoning Commission meeting agenda.

The planned seven-story parking garage will be situated next to Maule Avenue, south of the porte cochere. By merging two garages and surface lots, this development will result in about 6,000 total parking spots. There will be over 2,500 parking places available in the new garage alone, which has five stories, a basement level, ground level, and rooftop parking. Ground floor valet parking will be provided for pick-up and drop-off.

A new casino area is planned to connect the original building to the proposed garage. This expansion will include a restaurant space, an outdoor patio area, and a water feature wall. However, the agenda item did not include renderings or a construction timeline. The July 3 meeting will consider the modification request to the phase two plans originally approved in October 2021.

Future Plans and Strategy

Phase two previously approved plans permit the construction of an additional hotel tower and expanded casino, increasing the totals to 578 rooms and over 104,000 square feet of casino floor. This phase also includes additional banquet hall space and ancillary entertainment options like a movie theater, bowling center, and pool events center.

Executives told investors in May that they plan to develop a 100,000-square-foot casino with the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians in Madera, California. After this project, they may focus on Durango’s second phase.

Station Casinos’ strategy involves maximizing building and zoning allowances for development flexibility. The Durango Resort initially sat on a 71-acre parcel but utilized about 50 acres for development. In December 2022, Red Rock sold 21 acres to Ovation Development Corp. for $23.9 million after starting the resort-casino development.

The $780 million, 15-story Durango Resort, launched with 200 rooms, is the seventh off-strip property in and around Las Vegas for Station Casinos. Its central feature is the 83,000-square-foot casino, which includes 2,300 slot machines, 63 table games, and an STN-branded race and sportsbook, which boasts 205 seats, a circular bar, and 4,200 square feet of LED television monitors.

“With one full quarter under our belt, we are confident that Durango is well on its way to achieving both its margin target and return goal even faster than originally planned,” said executive vice president Stephen Cootey during an investor call last month.
