Erik Verduzco Las Vegas Review-Journal @Erik_Verduzco Strip land selling for $50 million an acre. Southern Nevada hosting the Olympic Games. A continued reliance on resort companies selling outdoor experiences over gaming. Welcome to the Las Vegas Roaring ’20s — the 2020s of the city’s future, that is. Three economic experts shared their views of what could be in store for Las Vegas in a 90-minute presentation before the Economic Club of Las Vegas Friday at Bali Hai. John Knott, the head of the CBRE Global Gaming Group, Stefan Szymanski, the University of Michigan’s Stephen J. Galetti Professor of Sports Management, and David Schwartz, associate vice provost for faculty affairs at UNLV, shared what they see in the economic crystal ball. Knott’s projection of $50-million-an-acre Strip land is based on what he expects to be heavy demand for limited available property once the 2020-21 boom of new projects comes on line. Far from peak levels Strip land prices haven’t ventured anywhere close to $30 million an acre since before the Great Recession, ranging from $2.5 million to $8.8 million an acre. Overall, Strip land sales have been slow with some parcels laying dormant for years. Knott reasons that once projects like the Las Vegas Convention Center expansion, the Las Vegas Stadium, Resorts World Las Vegas, Project Neon and Circa are completed, available land will become more scarce — and more valuable. Knott anticipates that there will be a movement to improve transportation infrastructure, with the possibility of high-speed rail to Southern California and Elon Musk’s recent underground transportation network envisioned by The Boring Company. He expects that if population trends continue their current trajectory, the resort corridor would lengthen to the south and broaden where it can to the east and west with the regentrification of areas close to the Strip. Housing will be denser, he predicted, and proposals for a reliever airport to McCarran International would resurface. Between 2000 and 2010, Clark County officials studied the possibility of building a new airport in the Ivanpah Valley south of Las Vegas. Las Vegas Olympics? Knott’s view of the future was no less incredible than Szymanski’s proposal to stage the Olympics in Las Vegas someday based on Southern Nevada’s newfound love affair with professional sports. Szymanski said there aren’t many cities in the world currently capable of hosting the Olympics — but Las Vegas is one of them. With the completion of the $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat Las Vegas stadium in 2020, Szymanski said the city would have at least 20 facilities capable of hosting events. He said an Olympic village would be needed to house 16,000 athletes — and one casino company like Caesars Entertainment could easily do that, leaving plenty of hotel rooms for tourists wanting to attend events. But Szymanski acknowledged that a Las Vegas Olympics could be economically viable, but politically unacceptable. He said he would expect the International Olympic Committee to rebuff Las Vegas as a host because of the presence of gambling, a problem the city has faced before with numerous professional sports leagues. So Szymanski proposed a different option — hosting its own multisport competition without the IOC’s blessing. “You could even drop the triple jump and bring in esports instead,” he said. Schwartz, who has analyzed gaming industry and tourism trends as the director of the Center for Gaming Research at UNLV, said resort companies have made the realization that while not every visitor is inclined to gamble based on declining gaming revenue, all of them need to eat and want to be entertained. That’s why companies have invested in attracting renowned chefs and in new entertainment experiences. He expects that trend to continue as resort companies create new experiences, many of them involving outdoor activities to capture ancillary revenue. Contact Richard N.

It was Hendrick who set Lucas straight on how he was expected to fit […]
