Desert Land LLC and Desert Oasis Investments LLC propose amusement park, retail center on Las Vegas Strip

According to a report by Amanda Finnegan in the Las Vegas Sun:
“Developers hope to build a recreational facility that would include amusement rides on a 9.6-acre site across from Mandalay Bay, according to plans filed with Clark County.
The proposal was submitted by Desert Land LLC and Desert Oasis Investments LLC, both of which are controlled by Las Vegas real estate developers David Gaffin and Howard Bulloch. Desert Land and Desert Oasis Investments are listed as owners of the site.
“The plan calls for up to eight amusement rides, including a 500-foot Ferris wheel. In addition to rides, plans also include a 21,000-square-foot convention center and a 139,500-square-foot venue for retail, restaurants and offices.
“Developers said in their proposal that the facility would be built in two phases, but didn’t include a timeline for construction in their submitted plans.
“The project’s developers declined to comment on the plans until the Clark County Commission hears the proposal, which is scheduled for March 2.”
