LAS VEGAS-The Nevada Gaming Commission on Thursday unanimously approved the licensing application for Aliante Station, a $675-million off-Strip casino hotel that is slated to open for gambling next month. The Nevada Gaming Control Board, an operating arm of the five-member Gaming Commission, recommended approval of the application last month.

Aliante Station is a 50-50 joint venture of Station Casinos and members of the Greenspun family, which owns the Las Vegas Sun newspaper and is the developer of the 1,905-acre Aliante planned community through the family business, Greenspun Corp. The 40-acre Aliante Station development is nearing completion off the northeast corner of Interstate 215 and Aliante Parkway in North Las Vegas. The project includes 202 hotel rooms, a casino, six restaurants, and food court plus a concert venue with seating for 600, a 16-screen movie theater and 14,000 sf for meetings and banquets.

The hotel rooms will range from 400 sf to 1,500 sf and will include 42-inch plasma TVs, CD players with iPod jacks and high-speed Internet. Room rates start at $60 a night. While the casino will open Nov. 11 at 11 p.m., the first day guests will stay in the hotel rooms is Jan. 1, 2009, according to company officials.

Aliante Station’s unveiling will come approximately two-and-a-half years after Station Casinos opened its $925-million, 68-acre Red Rock resort. Located in the Summerlin master-planned community, it was the most expensive off-Strip casino resort ever built and the largest development ever undertaken by Station Casinos.

All told, Station Casinos owns and operates 15 resorts in Southern Nevada. Traditionally focused on the residents of Las Vegas more so than the visitors, Station Casinos officially reached out for more tourists in 2001 when it opened Green Valley Ranch, a 500-room resort located near the airport in Henderson, NV. Red Rock was its second such offering.
