Downtown Las Vegas “Gateway Arch” Construction

Construction of an illuminated arch sign that will serve as a Welcome sign to visitors to Downtown Las Vegas continues. It is expected to be completed in September. The $6.5 million, 80-foot-tall crisscrossed arches will be located on Las Vegas Boulevard near the STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod, formally called the Stratosphere Hotel, Casino & Tower.

During construction, expect delays and sporadic closures on Las Vegas Boulevard between St. Louis and Bob Stupak Avenues. At least one lane will remain open in each direction.

Resorts World Las Vegas Construction

Resorts World is a casino and resort currently under construction on the Las Vegas Strip across the street from the Encore Resort. It is owned and operated by the Genting Group, based in Malaysia. It is on the former Stardust Hotel and Casino site that was owned by Boyd Gaming. Boyd was going to build Echelon Place, but they stopped construction in 2008, due to the economic downturn.

Boyd sold the site to the Genting Group in 2013 for $350 Million. Resorts World Las Vegas will cost $4.3 Billion to build. It will have two hotel towers, with 3,500 rooms and suites, seven pools, and over 110,000 square feet of gaming space. The theme will be a luxury experience “with Asian-inspired touches”. They plan to open in the summer of 2021.
