Resorts World, the long-delayed casino project on the Las Vegas Strip, is moving forward.

Genting Group has announced that it has hired a construction manager and the Clark County Building Department has approved multiple permits and applications for the project. Genting said work is being done to prepare the site for further construction.

When completed, the Asia-themed venue will be the first ground-up resort built on the Strip since the recession killed projects on Las Vegas Boulevard and around the Las Vegas valley.

Resorts World broke ground in 2015 and is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
