For the first time in more than 30 years, Downtown Las Vegas will have a new casino built from the ground up when construction is completed in 2020 on the Circa Resort and Casino. Derek Stevens, co-owner of the project, said he will deliver a building that is bold in design, yet pays tribute to the history of the Fremont Street entertainment district.
In a statement to the Associated Press, he said: “We are going to offer things to do with a lot of fun and excitement, no matter what your age is. We are certainly going to have a bit of a focus on sports, water, sun, and it’s all themed around fun and high energy. We are focusing on a design that is consistent with downtown Las Vegas but all new.”
According to the report Circa will include a stadium-style sports book equipped with what is claimed to be the largest screen in a venue of its kind in Las Vegas. It will also be the tallest structure north of the Strip, with 777 rooms and two-level casino.
Stevens told AP: “I wanted to make sure that in the design of the resort we remember a little bit of Vegas past while we are building something brand new. So, we felt that the name coming together kind of represents a lot of where Las Vegas started in downtown Las Vegas.”
