The ice-in-the-sky concept to turn the pool deck at the Plaza into a hockey facility for the Las Vegas Wranglers has proven too costly to complete.
The Plaza announced in a news release today that the Wranglers will not move their home games to the downtown hotel-casino. It cited the team’s concerns that the project had exceeded original cost estimates.
Team owner Gary Jacobs informed Jonathan Jossel, managing director of Plaza hotel parent company Tamares Group, in an email this morning that the team was moving on.
“The pool deck wasn’t going to be feasible in a time frame for us to play at the Plaza,” Wranglers President Billy Johnson said in a phone interview just after the release was issued via email.
“We do have another (plan) that we’ve dual-tracked in case things didn’t work out as smoothly as we’d liked with the Plaza,” he said.
Dual-tracked in this context means the team was simultaneously working out a plan for another venue.
