Silverton owner Ed Roski plans apartment complex next to Las Vegas hotel-casino

Silverton owner Ed Roski is looking to add another feature to his Las Vegas resort: an apartment complex.

The five-story, 290-unit project would be built adjacent to the hotel-casino parking lot, according to Clark County records. Plans call for the complex to include a porte-cochere, an indoor golf simulator, a courtyard with hammocks and a bocce court, and units ranging from 600 to 1,346 square feet.

Clark County commissioners approved plans for the project on Wednesday.

Silverton CEO Craig Cavileer told the Review-Journal that station operators “have no comment on the project” at this time.

The apartment complex, off Blue Diamond Road just west of Interstate 15, could house hundreds of people near a casino, and it wouldn’t be the first of its kind in the southern Nevada.

Apartment developer The Calida Group opened a 286-unit upscale rental complex next to the Palms last year. Ovation Development also filed plans with the City of Henderson last year for a 55-plus 249-unit apartment complex behind Sunset Station.

Roski, the billionaire chairman and president of Majestic Realty Co. in Southern California, has made several additions to the Silverton over the past few years.

Work crews opened Silverton Village in 2018, a project that includes a 150-room Hyatt Place hotel and stand-alone retail space with restaurants including Blaze Pizza and Firehouse Subs.

Nevada’s first Cracker Barrel restaurant and store opened just south of the Silverton, on land owned by Roski, in 2016. A Florida developer also opened an 18-story timeshare tower next to the Silverton, on land purchased in Roski, also at this time.

The timeshare resort, called The Berkley Las Vegas, is named after Silverton atop the tower.

Further changes to the Silverton are in the works. His 300-room hotel closed this summer for a $45 million overhaul, with a press release saying it would be remodeled in a “rustic-luxe” design.

The adjacent pool deck has also been decommissioned for the project, but the rest of the resort, including the casino, restaurants and aquarium, will remain open during the renovations, according to the statement.

The hotel and swimming pool are expected to reopen early next year.
