Despite having $300m of J.P. Morgan's cash in escrow, more smoke machines than Iron Maiden, more mirrored trickery than David Copperfield and more adjectives than Webster... owners sbe have resorted to a bizarre, little known investment tool the EB-5. Recently, Two Way Hard Three wrote a piece entitled Funding For Green Cards which discusses the program and how it has been used to build casinos previously.
Agents for the American Dream Fund have set up a website to solicit applications for their current EB-5 project - the SLS Las Vegas. Despite containing a truly tasteless photo (yes, that is a hamburger) the website contains lots of information about the process, requirements and a sea of bullet points related to the proposed SLS itself.
Requirements for entry into EB-5 are minimum $500,000 investment. In five years, should the project continue and become successful, you get your green card and your investment back and are invited to apply for citizenship. Gotta say if SBE can get enough fish in the bucket, this is a great way to grab cash without having to give up equity or take phone calls when this North Strip gamble doesn't work out.
For the low low price of $500,000 this is what you give Las Vegas....
