While I'm REALLY glad that there is movement on getting that place open again, it does sort of sadden me that it won't be the Lady Luck any more.

Oh well, progress has it's pains I guess. At least it's moving forward.

How long before MGM sues for copyright infringement on the use of 'Grand'?

There is or use to be a "Grand" in Biloxi, I think Harrahs bought it though.

Seth's a good friend and a good guy, and MGM Resorts is no Trump, so I doubt that there will be any trademark issue.

They really had no choice but to rename the property, as the Lady Luck name was somewhat tarnished by the slow pace of renovating the property and most folks that stay on Fremont Street equate that name to a closed down casino. The Downtown Grand does sound a bit generic though.

I agree. They could have done better. However, I'm still glad to see it happening.

The Downtown Grand (The former Lady Luck) is slated to open next year.

http://www.fifthstreetgaming.com/casinos-and-hotels/

It will be interesting to watch the improvements to that area over the next year.

Are they ever going to finish this thing? Its taking them longer to just renovate the Downtown Grand/Lady Luck as it took MGM to build all of City Center from nothing...

My guess would be the new owners don't have the cash flow to throw towards it to expedite the job the way MGM had to get City Center finished (or in the case of the Harmon Tower through money out the window).
