Construction at Resorts World ramping up on north end of Strip


There’s been a lot of movement on the north end of the Strip lately because construction at Resorts World is in full swing.  But that’s not it. 

Resorts World is just one of many new projects bringing even more people to the City of Las Vegas.

“Been probably seven or eight times at least, just I don’t know, the excitement, people watching; stuff to do, it’s just insane here,” said Craig Lyons, visitor. “It’s a lot of fun for us.”

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Authority says its reinvestment into the community that attracts guests.  The LVCVA estimates reinvestment from 2017 through 2019 to be more than $15 billion, bringing 14,000 hotel rooms.

“Las Vegas is the only city that evolved to host people so that’s what we do better than anybody else and we have great customer service and deliver on that brand promise,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, president of LVCVA.     

Resorts World is expected to open in 2020, and it’s expected to have 3,000 rooms, which gives visitors even more options.

“We usually spend a lot of time down at Fremont, so we prefer this side of the Strip,” Craig Lyons said. “Circus Circus is fine; it’s cheap, so I guess we don’t spend too much time in a hotel.” 

“I think there’s going to be more to do and it could take away from some of the other stuff, and they are going to have to be more competitive to get the business,” said Michelle Lyons, visitor.
