Olympia Gaming plans to break ground early next year for an $800-million marina, casino, resort and spa development that will anchor the 100-acre, 1.2 million-sf Legends at Sparks Marina retail and entertainment center. The company, which also is developing the $1-billion Southern Highlands Casino Resort Spa in Las Vegas, this week acquired 14 acres for its Legends project from the master developer, RED Development.
Olympia Gaming plans to break ground for its Sparks development in the first quarter of 2008 and open the doors in late 2009 or early 2010. The project will include 500 hotel rooms and suites, a casino, a lakefront amphitheater, a private beach and dancing water fall show, several fine dining and casual restaurants, as well as a spa, fitness center, and salon facility, and 50,000 sf of convention and corporate meeting space. A future phase would double the number of hotel rooms and expand the casino.
The rest of the Legends at Sparks Marina got underway in April 2007. It will include 1.2 million sf of retail, restaurants and entertainment offerings. A sports arena may also eventually be part of the development. Retailers and restaurateurs secured to date for the development include Scheels, T-Rex: A Prehistoric Adventure, Saddle Ranch Chop House, Corona Cantina, Pin-Up Bowl, Off-Broadway Shoes and Brooks Brothers.
