The Circa Resort & Casino, a whole new integrated sportsbook resort to be opened in downtown Las Vegas, is expected to become a prime destination very soon.

Derek Stevens, along with his brother Greg, has been creating a lot of fuss and excitement since they bought a stake in the Golden Gate on Fremont Street back in October 2006. The announcement was made last Thursday at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center, right after Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman's State of the City address.

Derek Stevens said as he described his three-storey Circa property, "I still remember the very first day I walked into the Caesars Palace sports book and I had that wow moment in my mind. Then, when I walked into the Las Vegas Hilton (now the Westgate) in 1986 and saw their Superbook ... another wow moment. I think what we're trying to create that scenario where anyone who's a sports fan is going to want to come over and check this out."

Stevens aims to become the biggest sports book in Las Vegas "with the biggest screen in sports book history." He wishes to be able to show each and every major game being aired. Aside from the huge screen, there's also an in-house broadcast studio built in partnership with Vegas Stats and Information Network (VISN), a sports gaming and media company.

The resort is going to be built on a city block that once was home to the Las Vegas Club (where Fremont Street meets Main Street), La Bayou casino, Mermaids casino and Girls of Glitter Gulch strip club, right across Main Street from the Plaza.

The 777-room hotel sitting on the 1.25 million square-foot property shall be seen as the tallest hotel in the north of the Las Vegas Strip at about 44 storeys. Stevens stated the top floor would be at Level 60 but there shall be floor numbers that will be left out.

The property shall have the longest outdoor bar featuring five or more restaurants (the names and themes would be revealed at a later date) a spa, and a two-level casino that would have entrance doors both on the street level and via a bridge connected to a 9-storey parking garage across Main Street.

The "Garage Mahal" shall be the first garage facility and porte-cochere to be cleverly integrated with ride-sharing technology. Stevens said, "It's going to be the key hub for Uber, Lyft and all of ride sharing. This technology was never around when any other casino resort was designed. This is the first one where all the elements, how it works, how people get off the highway, will be integrated right into the resort."

There will also be a rooftop pool amphitheater that shall have six swimming pools, a 125-foot screen that will be used for sports viewing parties aside from other programs, and it has the capacity to accommodate 4,000 guests.

Construction is scheduled to commence on February for the first ground-up development downtown resort in decades. Steelman Partners is the team overseeing architecture and design of the resort, whereas Tre Builders is the construction manager, and McCarthy Building Companies Inc. serves as general contractor. The latter two are teaming up on the construction of the 65,000-seat Las Vegas stadium.

The resort and casino's doors are estimated to open in December 2020. The project's cost remained undisclosed.

A sports betting agency is very good for american players and if they also activate an online version to make bets, will be very good.
About the biggest screen in sports book history i do not know how useful it will be, but it will be interesting to see after he will be ready.
When it will be done, we will see this on the internet and how it looks on that block.

From the drawing it looks great. Really modern one and huge,
with pools everywhere, even on the rooftop Smile
And you can see what happens, when you have the money.
Besides the cost for it, construction will commence next month
and will finish at the end of the next year Smile
