The second phase of the hotel tower project at Red Rock Resort has recently been completed. The new expansion brings the total room count at Red Rock to over 800.

Originally opening in April 2006 with just over 400 rooms, this second phase is a welcome addition to the first $1 billion resort to be opened off the Strip in Las Vegas.

In addition, Fortune Magazine named owner Station Casinos as one of the '100 Best Companies to Work For' in their annual survey.

For those that haven't seen Red Rock, it is a pretty amazing property that seems to fit well with its surrounding area.

any word on the area formerly set aside for the condo towers?

There's so much on Station's plate right now that they're probably not paying much attention to the condo land. They've got Durango, Aliante, just finished a big improvement to Santa Fe, and now have the Palace Station thing which will probably be their focus for condos.

Hey Mike, I know this off topic but I thought I'd tell you! I just finished my application for an internship at Wynn and spoke with an employmetn manager directly so hopefully that will give me one advantage. I remember you saying you have a friend at Wynn, maybe he has some advice for me. Wish me luck!

As far as the condos are concerned, I'm pretty sure they canceled that project. The land that the condos were suppose to be built on is now being used for Station Casinos' corporate offices, or at least that's what I heard. Anywho, if you have passed by red rock recently or parked in their east garage, you'll see that their corporate offices are taking shape and should be open before the end of this year.

Nathan, that'd be Mike E, not me. I'll mention him in this post so that his name will show up under Recent Comments and it might draw his attention. ;)

Hey Hunter and everyone,

I don't know who to email about this, but I just read a new SEC filing for WYNN and appearantly they have changed their schedule for the opening of the Diamond Suites at Wynn Macau. As you may know, Wynn has decided to expand their expansion (Diamond Suites) to make it even larger. They initially planned on opening the Diamond Suites and then opening the second phase of the Diamond Suites later. Now the plan is to open it all at once as a package in 3rd quarter 2007.

On the WYNN tip, here's the 8K:

My understanding is that what they've done is moved the casino expansion from Q1 2007 to Q3. Originally the casino expansion was a Wynn Macau Phase 1b but since the Diamond Suite announcement, a lot of the 1b public spaces will be Diamond Suite public spaces instead... So, while they will have a few extra tables open for Chinese New Year, much of the additional casino capacity along with the showroom and the new 'front feature' (on the MGM Grand side - some kind of special effects room that is totally immersive) have been delayed to later this year and the Diamond Suites tower will follow eventually, though it will take at least 18 months to complete the high rise, probably longer.

Haha, I'm still checking in often but just not writing as much. As I was telling Hunter over mojitos at the beach-front Four Seasons Biltmore in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA (okay, all those details really weren't necessary--I just wanted to make everyone jealous), I'm really "Vegased-out" right now. But thanks for the drinks, Hunter :-).

Nathan, it's been really busy for me. I'll call my friend sometime Saturday and let him know if it's okay to pass on his contact info to you. Good luck with the internship. What department are you applying for?

I visited Red Rock in late July, and along one of the walls in the casino there was a large poster/sign that said Japanese restaurant coming soon...I havent heard anything about it though..
Do you think that it will be built?
