History

On March 13, 2000, Station Casinos announced that they would build a resort-casino in the Green Valley neighborhood. The original expected cost of the project was to be $280 million.

On November 8–9, 2017, employees voted in favor of unionizing the hotel and casino property by 78% as these vote margins were not disclosed to the public. It was organized by the Culinary Workers Union. It is the fourth and recent Station Casinos property to be unionized.

The property includes retail stores and restaurants on the first level and luxury condominiums on the upper levels, as well as standalone restaurants and commercial office buildings. A second phase of the District was opened in August 2005, further to the east, and includes retail shops and commercial office space. The Perlman Design Group designed the project.
