Dream Las Vegas Casino Approved Near McCarran Airport Runways

Despite concerns from major airlines, construction is slated to begin next year on a 20-story hotel-casino next to McCarran International Airport. 

The Clark County Commission this week voted 6-1 to approve the 527-room Dream Las Vegas resort. It sits on five acres now separated from the airport by a chain-link fence, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The only vote opposing the $500 million project came from Ross Miller. He said the “threshold question” should be whether the county will allow hotel-casinos to be “directly on top of our airport.”

The airport is at the southern end of the Strip, just east of major hotel-casinos on the resort corridor. Because the airport is in the county south of the Las Vegas city limits, it falls under the County Commission’s jurisdiction.

Dream Las Vegas would be the closet resort to the airport’s runways. The hotel-casino is projected to be built on the Strip near a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership.
