Land Holdings I, LLC
This resort includes an 18-story hotel tower with 234 guestrooms, 56 suites, and 10 penthouse suites. The hotel tower vertical face is comprised of panelized curtainwall units with metal panels and includes small-missile and large-missile impact glass while the podium level is enclosed with barrier-type EIFS and additional sections of curtainwall units. Post-installation testing of the curtain wall was extensive as there are approximately 2400 panels / 100,000 sf of curtainwall installed on the tower. The 161,000 sf Podium Level includes the gaming space, administrative space, the hotel lobby, back of house, an event center, a gift shop, and four café/restaurant venues plus supporting facilities. In addition, the bulk of the HVAC equipment is situated on this level. The site improvements consist of underground utilities, an architectural retaining wall, concrete paved loading dock area, asphalt paved roadways, 1800 parking spaces, site lighting and landscaping. In addition, there is a 4400 sf in-ground pool and hot tub plus 3500 sf of pool deck, an outdoor bar, and miniature-golf course with a volcano and water feature. Following the opening of this resort, RAC was contracted to construct a seven-story, cast-in-place garage using conventional and post tension reinforcing. The garage contains three (3) elevators and 1,023 parking spaces. The north exterior has an EIFS wave wall and the remaining structure are exposed concrete. A Retail Shops / Connector portion was added to the scope of the project and consists of a high end corridor connecting the garage to the existing casino lobby with an accompanying retail area.
