Station Casinos begins demolition of two Las Vegas casino hotels


On Monday, crews began demolishing two closed Station Casinos properties, as the company began to remodel its real estate portfolio in southern Nevada.

Demolitions began Monday morning at Fiesta Henderson, off Lake Mead Parkway, and Texas Station, on Rancho Drive north of Las Vegas, after the properties last month received city permits to demolish the main building and car parks at each site.

It’s unclear when crews will tear down Fiesta Rancho, located on Lake Mead Boulevard and Rancho Drive north of Las Vegas, as well as the recently closed Wild Wild West on Tropicana Avenue just west of Interstate 15.

Station Casinos declined to comment.

The Review-Journal previously reported that a permit application was filed with North Las Vegas on July 25 for the demolition of Fiesta Rancho.

The Pepsi Ice Arena, on the same site as Fiesta Rancho, remains open while Station Casinos’ parent company, Red Rock Resorts, owns the land.

The company previously announced plans to demolish and sell the grounds beneath Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho and Texas Station — the three casinos that remained closed even after pandemic-enforced closures were lifted.

Wild Wild West closed its doors last week. The company said it would “reposition the property for future development.”
