Thanks for the post. It's about time the north end of the strip gets some good fortune. Hopefully Echelon and Fountainbleu will get going soon as well.
Hoping on fontainblue for sure
There is no more Echelon.
Resorts World Las Vegas will probably be the name. Boyd sold to Genting Group.
Resorts World will start construction in 2014.
No current plans to re-start construction or sell Fointainbleau.
Vegas Chatter construction update with some pictures.
I'm not familiar with the SLS brand, but it seems like they are well known on the west coast. Based on some of the comments from the CEO they may be catering to the non-gaming crowd. Nothing wrong with that, will it be another Cosmo?
SBE actually owns SLS. They are well know alot of places. They actually manage Hyde
They will definetely be going for the 21 to 35 club goers.
Some similarities to Cosmo.
things I have read and heard is that they will be attempting to go after the "locals market" as much or more than anything similar to some things the hard rock does
but SLS is also suppose to have one of their towers be a "party tower" which has been implied to mean 8-10 to a room, coolers filled with cheap beer and lots of disturbance
those that were stating these "intentions" and rumors also stated they do not know if the SLS really has a full feeling for what they want to be or who they want to cater to, but that so far the ideas seem more of a miss than a hit.....at least in the opinions of those stating the "locals and party tower" rumors
The north end of the Strip certainly needs the boost. Once SLS and Resorts World get up and running, we'll see if somebody buys/renovates Riviera.
But that mess that is the remains of Fountainbleu needs to go, fast.
what is the proposed opening date?
dont know openning date but there new offices are around the block from my apartment at city center. if it gets warmer ill see whats up. they have stuff posted on the outside of there offices its just to dam could right now
SLS Las Vegas resort to open Labor Day on the Strip
Written by Matt Guillermo
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
The hotel-casino property that once housed the Sahara will reopen as the SLS Las Vegas this Labor Day weekend.
Sam Nazarian, CEO of the property's owner, SBE Entertainment, posted Wednesday an official opening date for the property at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip.
"It's been an incredible journey these past few years," Nazarian wrote on a blog for the SLS Las Vegas announcing the opening date. "Looking forward to toasting The Strip's next chapter with you!"
"We are 'back' indeed," Nazarian concluded in the short post...........
they own the hyde name ,its from there club in la and run the place
sbe or sls own most of the hot clubs in la .
it will be interesting as there real dicks and run there door like old studio 54 in la they are celeberty reality based driven clientel -tmz
think hilton, jersey shore , kardashian lohan bieber and the rest of the useless.
should be interesting how they handle vegas and how snotty they are.
They're not really in the best location to be snotty and exclusive.
thats why i think drias will kill them.
better area more gamblers (cet) to target .
sls will give free rooms to the celebutards to get a buzz going but we shall see how long it lasts . its shelp down that far to knowhere village
And that's why I hope they will hire away some hosts from MGM who will overcomp like mad in the beginning to get people through the door...
I think SLS can work well if positioned correctly. Many people want to go to Vegas, but not deal with the madness of the center strip. With all of the amenities that this property will have, along with a location midway between the strip and downtown, I could see this property working as more of a boutique getaway from the bad parts of Vegas. The concept is working at places like M Resort, Red Rock, Rumor Resort, etc.
Lets see what the prices are....
