Resorts World Las Vegas is a proposed Asian-themed resort on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. In March 2013, Boyd sold the Echelon Place 87 acres (35 ha) site to the Genting Group for $350 million. Genting announced plans to develop the site as with construction beginning in 2014. The $2 billion first phase, including a 3,500-room hotel and a 175,000-square-foot (16,300 m2) casino, is planned to open in 2016. Notable features will include a panda exhibit, as well as an indoor waterpark. The completed 21,847,314-square-foot (2,029,681.9 m2) project will eventually include 4 towers totaling 6583 rooms and could cost up to $7 billion.
