"The district, I think has always been somewhat confusing to some," said Shaw. "I think it was a good idea when they did that several years ago. I think it's confusing to some that have not been able to relate that as part of the Tropicana or currently Aztar property, and so marketing that all as just Tropicana I think will be better for us going forward."
Shaw wouldn't release names but says businesses are already interested in the few vacancies in the district. Aztar meets with the zoning board later this month. It hopes to complete re-branding by mid June.
