New Hotel-Casino Development Moves Forward in Sparks

Posted: Updated:

A new hotel-casino at Legends in Sparks is one step closer to reality.

It's been in the works for years now, but have yet to break ground.

They are hoping to get the go-ahead from the Sparks City Council today.

"It's all dependent on the financing ideally we would be able, if that's solved by the fourth quarter of this year," says DC Graham of Olympia Gaming.

So it could be years before they actually break ground.

Las Vegas-based Olympia Gaming wants to build a 60,000-square-foot casino and two buildings with 100 hotel rooms in each. The plan is to build 400 more rooms later.

The new hotel would be called Legends Bay.

Last week crews announced they've broken ground on a new IMAX movie theater.
