The building of Las Vegas Circa Resort and Casino has reached the halfway mark, with the first such entity to be built from the ground up in more than three decades moving towards an opening in December 2020.
The venture will be the first ground-up gaming resort in downtown Las Vegas since 1980, with Derek Stevens, CEO and developer, announcing that the integrated casino resort is at the midpoint of a 22-month construction process.
Located at the Fremont Street Experience, Circa plans to “honour the timeless spirit of Las Vegas while leading the charge for a bold new era with game-changing offerings”.
The 1.25 million-square-foot, 777-room property will be the tallest structure north of the Las Vegas strip, housing a two-story casino with 1,360 slot machines and 49 table games.
In fact, the entity’s hallmark will be the “world’s largest sportsbook,” run by Stevens’ sports betting company Circa Sports.
In an attempt to become “a mecca for sports gamblers,” fans will be able to take three action rates on a high-definition screen of 78 million pixels, advertised as “the largest sportsbook screen in history”. The Vegas Stats and Information Network will also have its own on-site studio that will provide bettors with in-depth analysis from an expert roster.
Another of the key features of Circa will be an amphitheatre for outdoor pools. The six rooftop pools will be run 365 days a year and will feature a screen of nearly 14 million pixels showing the sporting events of the day.
“Reaching this milestone for Circa would not be possible without our incredible partners and construction team,” said Stevens. “Today we not only celebrate this exciting moment in Circa’s journey, but those who have helped us bring the project to life.
“I’m proud to deliver something completely new to the Las Vegas experience and can’t wait to open our doors a year from now for everyone to enjoy it.”
