Golden Gate To Expand
Here's some more good news for Downtown/Fremont Street, our pal Ben Spillman at the Review Journal has ferreted out plans for an expansion of the famed Golden Gate.
No, the expansion isn't their recent blowing through the Fremont street frontage to install an IBBS (Ice Blended Booze Stand) but a full on five story addition that will occupy a huge chunk of the parking lot out back.
Very crude stick rendering of what the layout might be
applicant is requesting approval of a 24,603 square-foot addition to an existing 71,156 square-foot hotel/casino and improvements to two existing surface parking lots. The proposed uses are permitted and in conformance with the General Plan and the C-2 (General Commercial) zoning district. The site consists of the existing Golden Gate Hotel and Casino and a valet parking lot north of Carson Avenue, and a surface parking lot to the south. The addition is located at the rear of the existing structure, adjacent to the valet lot, and includes 4,267 square feet of casino floor area, 19 hotel suites as well as additional lobby, restaurant and service areas.
Basically they're going to blow the back wall out and move everything southward, pushing those shrimp cocktails 50 yard further away from your belly. Atop the new casino/deli/hotel lobby expansion will be some brand new suite product.
So now Plaza, Caesars Palace and Golden Gate think that now is a good time to add or majorly upgrade room product. I wonder what Boyd Gaming thinks about this.
