On March 13, 2000, Station Casinos announced that they would build a resort-casino in the Green Valley neighborhood. The original expected cost of the project was to be $280 million.[5]

The District at Green Valley Ranch[edit]

The District at Green Valley Ranch[6] was added as a multi-use project directly to the east of the resort in April 2004. The property includes retail stores and restaurants on the first level and luxury condominiums on the upper levels, as well as standalone restaurants and commercial office buildings. A second phase of the District was opened in August 2005, further to the east, and includes retail shops and commercial office space. The Perlman Design Group designed the project.

Film and television appearances[edit]

American Casino, a reality television series for the Discovery Channel and Travel Channel based on the daily tasks of various casino employees, was filmed here in 2004.[7][8]

Several episodes of the hit show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation were also filmed on site.[9]
