Harrah’s Building Arena in Las Vegas

From the LA Times,

Prospects for an NHL or NBA franchise here increased Wednesday with the announcement of an arena partnership deal between AEG and Harrah’s Entertainment.
A privately financed, 20,000-seat arena, which would open in 2010, would be on 10 acres of Harrah’s land holdings, which is behind Bally’s and Paris resorts, one block east of the Strip. Groundbreaking for the facility is scheduled for 2008.
The AEG-Harrah’s alliance was first reported this morning in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. A news conference to discuss the project was scheduled here for later this morning.
There is no shortage of potential homes for hockey or basketball franchises in Las Vegas. There already are announced plans in the works for a multifaceted $9.5-billion project, which would also include a 22,000-seat arena, aimed for a completion date in 2010.
