Station Opens Red Rock in Summerlin

Posted by Hunter

Well, the big day is here. The newest casino in Las Vegas opened this morning at 12:01am after a VIP performance from Grammy winner Sting.

Coverage in the LVRJ:

Personally, I'm looking forward to visiting and photographing in about 10 days. Of course, you'll hear all about it.

This is a historic moment for Station Casinos, which is a company that often flies under radar but is exceptionally well run. I expect to be impressed with Red Rock, much more than I was with Green Valley Ranch. The pictures of the pool deck look great and I really like how they've integrated the desert theme into the landscape architecture (LifeScapes, the folks that did Wynn, Bellagio, The Mirage and the Strip median are responsible for that). This place looks like it belongs in its environment.

If you're interested, the magazine "Casino Enterprise Management" is running a story about Red Rock in its May issue, which should be out in a few weeks.

Great! I read the magazine on a regular basis - always good coverage.

I was just at Red Rock Station and took some pics, and I was just wondering if you would like to use them for your great website; if you would like them, to what address do I send them to?

Send 'em to and we'll get them up. Thanks!
