    Currently in Vegas and we're just curious to know.. The building site that is next to the Circus Circus is this actually going to be a hotel any time soon? I see it every year and it never seems to progress.

    What do you mean by "next to"?

    I assume you are referring to the same side of the street across from encore more or less?

    That will be Resorts World, and it is meant to be done sometime next year. Previous to that it was going to be Echelon Place, but they abandoned the project when the financial crisis hit.

    If you mean across the street, that is Fontainebleau and zero updates on that one.

    Resorts World will be awesome when finished in about 3 years. Just hit the internet and put Resorts World Las Vegas. There will be different phases to the property, with phase 1 including one hotel/casino. It will be gradual, with more hotels/casinos etc, but phase 1 will be finished first so that people can get excited when it opens.
    ALON, by an Australian casino mogul, will be another new property just south of Resorts World close to the Donald. That will probably happen after phase 1 at Resorts World. Resorts World already partial construction before the economy went sour, so RW has lost some time, but now they are full speed ahead once again.
    As a Vegasholic since the late 70's, things are looking up on the North Strip. Soon, hopefully, there will be no longer chain link fences on the North Strip.

    I'm guessing OP is talking about Fontainebleau - and the answer is no, it won't be a hotel anytime soon. It went bust during the economic meltdown and was essentially sold for scraps.

    If you're talking about a London-themed hotel, there have been a couple tries at that, most recently about 15 years ago: http://lasvegassun.com/news/2001/jan/31/london-theme-planned-for-lv-resort/. That site is where the Fontainebleu is now. Given how much themes have fallen out of favor (Resorts World notwithstanding), I think it's highly unlikely any time soon.

    If you're asking whether the company that owns Resorts World will ever do anything in London, they're actually one of the largest players in the British gambling scene. The company is Genting Group, and I think they own something like 50 casinos in the UK, including a number in London mostly under the Genting name. There's also a Resorts World currently under construction in Birmingham, though it's not going to have the same sort of theme (nor do are their other Resorts World properties particularly themed, mostly focusing on a modern-ish sort of aesthetic).
