The Palms Resort will have a topping-off ceremony on Thursday when local journalists can view the progress of the $265 million casino hotel under construction.

Located on Flamingo Road across from the Rio and the Gold Coast, the 455-room resort is being developed by George Maloof, owner of the Sacramento Kings of the NBA and former owner of the Fiesta Hotel Casino.

The Palms is scheduled to open in December.
