Las Vegas’ Circa Resort & Casino eyes December opening

Circa Resort & Casino has reached the halfway mark in its 22-month construction process. On track for a December 2020 opening, the project will be the first ground-up gaming resort in historic Downtown Las Vegas since 1980. Located on the Fremont Street Experience, the 1.25 million-square-foot, 777-room property will stand as the tallest structure north of the Las Vegas Strip.

CEO and developer Derek Stevens partnered with Steelman Partners to oversee Circa’s architecture and design, McCarthy Building Companies Inc. as its general contractor and Tré Builders as construction manager.

When it opens, Circa will have the world’s largest sportsbook, to be operated by Stevens’ sports betting venture Circa Sports. There will be three levels of action taking place on a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen, reportedly the largest sportsbook screen in history. The Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN) will have its own on-site studio offering bettors in-depth analysis from a roster of experts, including broadcasters, industry professionals and athletes.

Capitalizing on the sunny Las Vegas weather, one of Circa’s key features will be an outdoor pool amphitheater. Its six rooftop pools will be open 365 days a year and will have nearly 14-million-pixel screen playing the day’s games for those who want to float while watching the G.O.A.T. Larger groups can partake in one of the pool’s Super Cabanas, which can host up to 50 guests. The venue will also include its own food and beverage venue and music from DJs and special guests.

The property will also have “Garage Mahal,” which will offer valet and self-parking, in addition to long-term parking for loyal Circa customers.

Circa’s two-story casino will house 1,350 slot machines and 49 table games. A lobby highlight will be a statement piece unlike any other – the return of Las Vegas’ beloved neon kicking cowgirl, Vegas Vickie, who will be a signature feature in Circa’s lobby.
