The LVCVA board ap­proved an amended con­tract with Terry Miller of Cordell

Corp., the owner rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the con­ven­tion cen­ter project. The con­tract pays $438,000 a month for the first three years and $186,000 a month for the fi­nal year, to­tal­ing $18 mil­lion from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2021. pub­licly funded project which would en­able the pub­lic agency to eval­u­ate the pro­posal on any ba­sis other than the com­pe­tence and qual­i­fi­ca­tions of the reg­is­trant to per­form the type of ser­vices re­quired,” the code says.

Ad­di­tional ideas

The two de­sign teams that fin­ished sec­ond and third in the competition, RV Ar­chi­tec­ture of New York and Kansas City, Mis­souri-based Pop­u­lous, were given $250,000 each for their ef­forts, and the LVCVA will re­tain their in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty. It re­mains to be seen whether TVS will in­cor­po­rate any of their ideas in the fi­nal de­sign.

The fi­nanc­ing of the con­ven­tion cen­ter ex­pan­sion and ren­o­va­tion was au­tho­rized in the same leg­is­la­tion that pro­vided $750 mil­lion in pub­lic funds for the Las Ve­gas sta­dium project. A 0.5 per­cent­age-point in­crease in Clark County’s ho­tel room tax was ap­proved in leg­is­la­tion for the con­ven­tion cen­ter au­tho­rized in a spe­cial ses­sion in Oc­to­ber 2016 and added a piece of fi­nanc­ing to the pack­age that will fund the ex­pan­sion and ren­o­va­tion project.
