LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The first resort built from the ground up since 1980 in downtown Las Vegas hosted a black-tie, VIP event in the hours leading up to the big public grand opening.

Circa Resort & Casino hosted hundreds of people to show off the property built by owner Derek Stevens.

"This project is clearly my largest project that my brother and I have been involved with and I think it’s even more special with what’s happening in 2020 and we’re in a community that needs jobs," said Derek Stevens, owner of Circa, Golden Gate, and The D Hotel and Casino.

The property showcases the largest sportsbook in the world with screens that tower three stories high and room for 1,000 guests.
