New downtown hotel and casino revealed
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
It’s the first ground-up casino built in downtown Las Vegas since 1980.
It’s the glamour of old Vegas with the future in technology.
Circa is billed as "game-changing." The official announcement filled with all the glitz you’d expect from developers, and brothers, Derek and Greg Stevens, who are also behind The D and Golden Gate.
Mayor Carolyn Goodman said, "This man’s a showman and an ambassador."
Circa is expected to debut in December 2020 and is a nod to the past.
"You'll see Vegas Vickie in her full grandeur inside Circa, right after getting dropped off at Garage Mahal," said Derek Stevens.
The garage is the first fully integrated parking structure designed with ride-sharing in mind, he said.
The 1.25 million square foot property, which was once part of the block that housed the Las Vegas Club, among others, will boast 777 rooms, restaurants, and the longest outdoor bar on Fremont Street Experience.
It will also have a two-level casino with a rooftop like none other in the city.
Steven said, “It’s gonna have six pools. It’s gonna have 125-foot TV and it’ll have the capacity for 4,000 people.”
It will also include a three-story sportsbook with what’s being dubbed the "biggest screen in sportsbook history."
Circa would become the tallest tower north of the Strip.
