LAS VEGAS (AP) - A years-delayed multibillion-dollar casino-resort project on the Las Vegas Strip that would cater to the city's Chinese and Chinese-American tourists announced Wednesday that it is pushing back its opening date by another year to 2020.
In the next several months, construction activity on site will continue to ramp up with the installation of tower cranes to commence work on the casino podium and hotel towers. A 3,000-space parking building has already been completed. Once the resort opens, Farrell said it will hire 3,000 union employees for daily operations.

The project's initial target opening was 2016.
Genting Group owns resort-casinos around the world and bought the Las Vegas property in 2013 from Boyd Gaming for $350 million.
Today, Farrell said in the statement: "Significant time has been spent on design to ensure that Resorts World Las Vegas will not only feature the exciting gaming experience Genting customers all over the world have come to expect from us, but also to debut completely new and captivating entertainment concepts that will appeal to a wide range of visitors to Las Vegas - global and domestic alike".
