Atlantis Announces $50 million Expansion Plan
As reported by the Reno Gazette-Journal: "The Atlantis Casino Resort wants to build a sky bridge over Peckham Lane to pipe guests to and from the Reno-Sparks Convention Center as part of a $50 million expansion. "The hotel-casino could begin work late this year on a 116,000-square-foot expansion that would add significantly to the casino floor and convention space, officials said. "...The casino expansion plans have been approved by the city as part of the company's 1998 master plan, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive John Farahi said. The bridge and skywalk connecting the convention center and hotel-casino will need approval from the Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority board of directors. "...The entire project should take 10 to 12 months to complete once work begins, Farahi said..."
