Demolition begins at 2 Station Casinos sites in the Vegas area

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Demolition has begun at two Las Vegas-area casinos that have remained closed since the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020.

A spokesperson for Station Casinos declined to comment on work that began Monday at Texas Station in North Las Vegas and Fiesta Henderson in Henderson.

Work has not started on the company’s closed Fiesta Rancho, which is also expected to be razed.

Red Rock Resorts, the company that owns the publicly traded properties, announced in July that the three casino hotels would be demolished and the land they sit on would be sold.

Fiesta Rancho opened in 1994 off Rancho Drive near the North Las Vegas airport, and Texas Station opened across the street in 1995.

Fiesta Henderson opened as The Reserve in 1998 off US 95 and was acquired by Station Casinos in 2001.

Station Casinos markets its off-Strip properties to Las Vegas residents.

He is building a new property, Durango Casino & Resort, off the 215 Beltway southwest of the Las Vegas Strip.

Station owns six other hotel-casinos in and around Las Vegas and is building a new site near a junction southwest of the Las Vegas Strip. It also operates several non-hotel Wildfire properties.
