Las Vegas Neighborhood Transformed Thanks to Casino
We all recognize Las Vegas as the city’s biggest gambling hub. Even those who have never visited the city have a passing familiarity with the famous “Las Vegas Strip.” Fremont Street is another incredibly popular tourist destination. To say nothing of the dozens of casinos that pepper both locations. However, developers and investors are now looking to build up a different neighborhood in Sin City – the newly constructed UnCommon area is getting what one might call a makeover.
New Restaurants and a Large Casino
In the fall of 2023, the Durango Resort and Casino are set to open. The establishment costs around $750 million to build and is expected to completely change the neighborhood. For one, someone will need to work at this casino, meaning a ton of jobs will be created. After all, 83,000 ft2 of gaming will not run itself. And speaking of which, visitors to the casino can expect all of that space dedicated to game tables, slot machines, and even a horse track and sportsbook.
The Durango Resort and Casino will have 200 rooms, a 20,000 ft2 space for performances and other events, and a massive food hall. Close to a dozen food outlets spread throughout will mean more work for the locals, and more tourists who want to enjoy a delicious meal. The restaurants are expected to bring food items from all over the country; burgers, pizza, a sandwich shop, and so much more. As the vice president of Durango said himself: “Every detail has been carefully curated “.
But the casino is not the only thing coming to the newly-built UnCommon area. The neighborhood is also getting a ton of new restaurants. As of now, 25 ideas for food and beverage establishments are in development. A large food hall called “The Sundry” should open this coming spring. The Sundry will house restaurants that create culinary marvels from around the world. From a Taco joint to a Vegan place to a Japanese Whiskey and Temaki Bar.
And still, it does not end there. According to Jim Stuart, the developer of the UnCommon area, the locals will see a Florentine sandwich shop in the near future, as well as many more new and exciting developments to come. So, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to see the UnCommon areas become Las Vegas’ third big-name attraction.
Sin City is getting a big, new tourist destination. The Strip and Fremont Street will no longer be the two “Big Names” in the gambling town. Now, we can comfortably add the UnCommon areas to that list. Especially after this fall, when the Durango Resort and Casino are scheduled to open its doors.
