GT to build new offices

Feb 21, 2006 9:26 AM

GamingToday last week broke ground for its new office complex, which will be built in the rapidly-developing southwest portion of the valley.

Located on Post Road near Rainbow Blvd. and I-215, the nearly 20,000-square-foot facility is designed by Gary Guy Wilson Architects, and will house GT’s administrative and editorial offices, production facilities, print shop and warehouse.

Total cost of the project, which is expected to be completed this summer, is $4.1 million. Construction will be handled by Centra Properties.

GamingToday’s former offices on Dean Martin Drive (Industrial Road) have been shuttered and await the wrecking ball. The site is being used for two, high-rise Panorama Towers condos.

"We’re excited about our new facilities and its location," said GT Publisher Eileen DiRocco. "Of course, we’re a little sad about leaving the Industrial office — we were there since 1989 and built-up a lot of fond memories."

In addition to publishing GamingToday, the nation’s only weekly gaming newspaper, DiRocco is president of Dirson Enterprises, which prints nearly 80 percent of the parlay cards in Nevada, and Print-A-Sport, which provides wallboards for Nevada race books.
