Station Casinos is known for its properties down in Las Vegas. And you may remember several years ago the major corporation showed interest in Northern Nevada, but nothing came of it. Now the organization is officially planning to expand with a new casino and entertainment facility in Reno. Station casino.

Station Casinos filed an application for a special use permit to build on land it already owns, located on the empty lot across from the Convention Center. The development would be on an eight-acre parcel on the northwest corner of South Virginia Street and Kietzke Lane.

There's no timetable for development just yet. Station Casinos is in the process of getting approval from the City of Reno to built on the land. But the company is already creating a vision for the property.

A rendering of the proposed venue shows what Station Casinos has in store.

"Right now the scope of the project looks to be about a 50 to 70 million dollar project budget that will have gaming and entertainment and dining and a state of the art sports book," said Lori Nelson, the spokeswoman for Station Casinos.

A news release issued Thursday, says Station Casinos LLC, has been interested in the Reno area for many years. Over a decade ago, the company bought land in the south Truckee Meadows area to create a gaming facility. As Lori Nelson with Station Casinos says, the timing wasn't right back then.

"Like many Nevada businesses, however, the economic downturn required the company to alter and delay its plans. The recent expansion and diversification of Northern Nevada's economy has renewed the company's interest in developing a gaming property in the Reno-Sparks market," said Nelson.

Now it has renewed its interest in expanding here.

The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority says the potential business coming here goes to show how Northern Nevada is doing with the economy.

Ben McDonald, the communications manager for RSCVA said, "A large name organization like Station Casinos to see potential here in Northern Nevada, I think says a lot for our region and what our folks are doing up here on the business side."

The property would not have hotel rooms like the properties of Station Casinos in Las Vegas. That's why RSCVA says it's hard to forecast what direct impact the casino would have on the Convention Center. But McDonald says visitors would have more opportunities for entertainment and food with the proposed property.

Other than seeking approval from the city, Station Casinos is asking the gaming control board for the green light. It already has a Reno Turf Club gaming license, but it would need approval to move it to a new location. The relocation of the license is allowed by NRS 463.302, the Reno Municipal Code and agreements with the City of Reno.

Station Casinos' Convention Center District Project estimates 350 construction jobs would be created. And upon completion, 150-200 jobs would be made. The property would be 84,000 square feet if approved.
