World Resorts released new images and a revised theme which pulls back on the intended “Forbidden City” Chinese imagery and assumes a more generic look and feel. It was also announced the result will open in early 2021 rather than the previously announced late 2020 range.
Several other major projects continue towards openings in the next two years however there also appears to be a cooling in the pace of new projects. Visitation to Las Vegas has been flat recently, many observers point to a decline in “night clubs” in recent years and ample affordable options for rooms near and on the Strip. Indeed, World Resorts choose to conserve a portion of the property for “future growth” rather than to build as intended.
Regardless the list of superlatives World Resorts will add promise to challenge all of the major property owners to up their game. This especially after Ceasars was bought earlier this year.
Some of the highlights include:
- 110,000-square-foot casino
- 5,000-seat theater
- 70,000-square-feet of retail space
- 350,000-square-feet of meeting and banquet space
- 200,000-square-feet of restaurants and bars
- 27,000-square-foot world-class spa
- 14,000-square-foot race and sports book and live entertainment venue
