LAS VEGAS (AP) - Fans of the Las Vegas Strip may not have to look at one of the corridor's most persistent eyesores for much longer.

Genting Group is planning to hide the site of the stalled Echelon project near Circus-Circus while it works on building a new Asian-themed casino-hotel there.

The Clark County Zoning Commission on Wednesday approved a plan that includes two five-story pagodas with columns and tile roofing.

The buildings will be visible from Las Vegas Boulevard.

Genting, a Malaysian conglomerate, expects to break ground in 2014 on a new casino featuring panda habitats, tea gardens and red pagodas. It would be the first new mega-casino to come to town since the recession wiped out a slew of projects in 2008.
