West Henderson Nevada City Officials Approve New Station Casino

The new Station Casinos in West Henderson has officially received the green light from city lawmakers. 

On Wednesday, city council members approved zoning changes and permits for Station’s new property dubbed Inspirada Station.

Station’s new casino in Nevada will be located about 20 minutes from the center of the Vegas Strip.

Station’s Nevada casino plan is part of a growing neighborhood

Plans for Inspirada Station include several amenities housed inside 80,000 square feet of casino space. Plans include:

  • 600 hotel rooms
  • Four restaurants
  • 11-unit food hall
  • A bowling alley
  • Movie theater

According to 3 News, speaking with city council members, Station Casinos representative Jim Ferrence said:

“One thing you may not know is there are over 2,400 of the team members from Station Casinos that are residents of Henderson. So it’s comprehensive, the commitment to the city of Henderson by the company.”

According to KSNV-NBC, construction is expected to begin in January 2024, with a potential March 2025 opening. 

Station Casinos is building its Nevada portfolio

Once casinos were allowed to reopen following the COVID-19 pandemic, Station did some restructuring to its brick-and-mortar properties. 

The casino operator sold Palms and demolished three other casinos that didn’t contribute much to the bottom line. Texas Station, Fiesta Rancho and Fiesta Henderson were the three casinos that didn’t make the cut. Following the demolition of Fiesta Henderson, Station sold the land back to the City of Henderson. 

Station Casinos currently has six full-service properties:

  1. Boulder Station
  2. Palace Station
  3. Green Valley Ranch
  4. Red Rock Casino
  5. Santa Fe Station
  6. Sunset Station

Station Casinos operates two types of properties in Las Vegas — full-service and casino-only. 

The company has 10 Wildfire casino-only properties around Las Vegas and is in the progress of constructing its $750 million Durango Resort.

Durango Resort will be a full-service property when construction is complete, and the downtown Las Vegas Wildfire will be a casino without a hotel. 

The plans for Inspirada lean more towards a full-service casino.
