Hello.....
So had a few questiona related to this City-Center project and possible jobs/opportunities it might present for people moving out there......I know one of the construction firms, a huge one from here in NYC, who's involved in alot of the work out there.....I am going to try to talk to someone I know with them here, about their work in Vegas (not necessarily labor), but I assume it's slowed down in general due to the RE slowing...

a) what is the timeframe on this project? (how long are they supposed to be doing work on it for before it's done? a few years?)
b) how does the hiring work? is it all union? does each subcontrator have their own staff, etc?


Thanks in advance....any other general knowledge about the job market in that area, and the project itself, is appreciated....

All I know is that City center is to be completed in late 2009. So, I would assume the hiring process will begin mid 2009.....

Las Vegas has a unique dynamic with the real estate market. Houses in the suburbs are hurting bad. However, city core urban development is still booming. There are estimated 150,000 new jobs that will be created through 2012 with the current projects under construction, including City Center, Fountain Bleu, Cosmopolitan, and Echelon. The Stardust and Frontier were both imploded recently for two of these projects, and construction is going up fast!

So, it is a good time to either buy a house, or get a rental.. rents are low.. for now. Las Vegas will do fine through the slump, as people will need places to live with all of the new jobs created....

Thanks for the info...If the city center will be done mid next year, then theyve probably got the staffs in place in terms of all the construction work and all that, but yeah once the project is completed there will be tons of job growth it sounds like....And yeah, it sounds like there will be tons more growth to the economy, I'm not familiar with Fountain Bleu, Cosmopolitan and Echelon, would you care to expand on what those are going to encompass? I'm guessing hotels, condos, restaurants, the usual
yes re: real estate, renting lots of great opportunities for sure at affordable prices

Ok -- Echelon might be the one to check out for construction jobs, because that will not be completed until third quarter 2010. Here is info on Echelon. Gracing the 87 acres where The Stardust, Westward Ho and Budget Suites used to sit, The $4.8 billion Echelon will be the centerpiece of the new north strip.

The project will have close to 5,000 rooms which will be divided into five (partially separate) towers; the main 2,500-room Echelon Hotel, the 650-room Suites at Echelon, the 350-room Shangri-La Las Vegas, the 860-room Mondrian Las Vegas and the 550-room Delano Las Vegas.
Several acres of Boyd's 87 acres will remain empty for possible future residence towers. Each hotel will have it's own spa.

All four hotels will share:
-140,000 sq. ft casino (the fourth largest in Las Vegas)
-300,000 sq. ft. shopping venue
-750,000 sq. ft. convention center (the fourth largest in Vegas)
-30 restaurants and bars
-4,000 seat stadium-style theater (for resident production shows)
-1,500 seat theater (for touring acts)
-The project will be completed in the third quarter of 2010
