According to a recent Review Journal article, Bill Foley has shifted his sights to building a practice facility in northwest Summerlin off Far Hills Avenue instead of at Warm Springs Road and Durango Drive. The progress was moving slower than he had hoped and he wants a rink ready for the 2017-18 season in hopes of the NHL approving an NHL team for Las Vegas. 
The facility still needs to be approved by the city, but it is a private deal so the city will not be responsible for the building or own the building. Ideally the project can be approved in the next few weeks and start moving forward. 
Clark County commissioner Steve Sisolak said the move caught him by surprise. “We had been working very hard with Bill on this and I even wrote (NHL commissioner) Gary Bettman a letter about the project,” Sisolak said. “I thought the Warm Springs-Durango location was a great spot for his practice facility. It’s disappointing, but I still hope we get a team and I’m not giving up my season tickets.”
