Las Vegas Convention enter expansion

The Riviera implosion in 2016 led the way for the expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Construction began in January 2018 on the project, which is expected to be complete by early 2021.  READ MORE

Las Vegas Stadium

The stadium that is the future home of the Raiders and the UNLV football team broke ground at its location near Russell Road and Dean Martin Drive in November 2017 . The $1.8 billion stadium is quickly taking shape behind the Strip with the mezzanine level completed. It is projected to open in the summer of 2020. READ MORE

In December 2018, Clark County commissioners approved a new monorail station at the MSG Sphere. READ MORE

Resorts World

Resorts World was set to open in 2016 but had its opening date pushed back to 2020. The resort, which would cater to Chinese tourism, will be located at 3000 S. Las Vegas Boulevard. Construction is coming along, however Wynn Resorts filed a federal trademark infringement lawsuit in December 2018 that claims the property under construction is similar to the Wynn and Encore casino-resorts on the Strip. In January 2019, developers responded by saying Resorts World currently consists of a skeletal structure with some window paneling, but upon completion, it will look "dramatically different" from Wynn's properties.

Circa will be the first brand-new resort built from the ground up in downtown since 1975 and promises to offer 777 rooms, a range of restaurants, an outdoor bar, and a two-level casino. Circa will also offer several signature elements including that stadium style sports book and a multi-tiered pool amphitheater. READ MORE
