The Vegas Loop station is planned for the south of the Strip

The Boring Co. is looking to add another Vegas Loop stop on the South Strip.

The Clark County Commission is expected to vote Sept. 7 on Boring Co.’s plans to add the planned 56th station for the underground loop project on a 2.2-acre parcel of land at 4613 Las Vegas Blvd., South, said Nancy Amundsen. , director of comprehensive planning for Clark County.

This land was purchased in June by the Object Dash trust for $12.8 million.

It is still unclear who is behind Object Dash, but Charles Frank Wood is listed as the Object Dash trustee on documents submitted to Clark County. Wood’s law firm is based in Brownsville, Texas, with the address listed on county records matching Wood’s office.

Brownsville is the same town where Boring Co. founder Elon Musk lives and where his company SpaceX has a spaceport and production facility. The law firm and SpaceX are located 21 miles from each other on the same road, according to Google Maps.

Representatives for Wood and Boring Co. were not immediately available for comment.

The portion of land is across Las Vegas Boulevard from Mandalay Bay, near the intersection of Russell Road. Backup material for the item set will be heard by Paradise Town council on Tuesday, notes that the station design will be brought back for approval at a later date.

Before plans for the station come into play, the land is expected to be used as a temporary staging area for Boring Co. construction related to connecting Allegiant Stadium to Tropicana Avenue, Amundsen said. This use permit is also expected to be voted on by the county commission next month.

While the site is being used as storage land, a 1,440 square foot office trailer, restroom trailer and 40 square foot security cabin are expected to be added to the land.

The Boring Co. has operated the Convention Center Loop at the Las Vegas Convention Center for over a year. The system’s first Strip opened last month, connecting Resorts World to the convention center.

The Vegas Loop is expected to be built in segments and then connected to open up a 29-mile underground transportation system, connecting passengers up and down the Las Vegas Strip and into downtown Las Vegas. Model Tesla vehicles will be used to transport passengers on the point-to-point system.

Plans already exist for the Tropicana Loop, Caesars Loop and a Westgate connection. Steve Hill, CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, said earlier this year that he expects parts of the Vegas Loop to be operational in 2023.

Boring Co. President Steve Davis noted last year that five to 10 stations are expected to open in the first six months of construction from the Vegas Loop. About 15-20 stations are expected to be added each year until full construction is reached.

Initial plans called for 55 stations to be included in the Vegas Loop project. This number will change as new projects are announced.

Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft said preliminary discussions have been held with various projects planned for a stretch of more than 300 lots on Las Vegas Boulevard between Warm Springs and Blue Diamond roads.

These plans include the Brightline West train station, a proposed $3 billion NBA resort/loan arena, and a potential Major League Soccer stadium.

“Conversations are happening further south on Las Vegas Boulevard,” Naft said. “Where all the development is.”
