    Bold name. If the property ends up looking like the rendering it definitely will be a destination. Looking forward to it!

    Honestly the artist's rendering of the the property makes it look out of place Downtown. Circa definitely looks like it belongs on the Strip. Looks like this new property will change how people perceive Downtown Vegas which was considered Old School Vegas.

    Circa reminds me of Circus Circus. And you don't want to be reminded of Circus Circus.

    And it makes the Golden Nugget look like a dump. So just imagine how the other properties will look like next to this pretty girl.

    And I still wish they named it 18 Fremont.:soapbox:

    And...and.....and....yeah yeah I know. The rants of a Grumpy old man.

    This definitely seems like "A rising tide lifts all boats" establishment. I think the consumers will definitely see a raising of the bar from competitors and surrounding business's with this game changer coming in.. for better or worse depends on your perspective. To me being a Strip regular and never been to downtown, that Big Ass sports book and Pool area are very attractive while also being able to do the Fremont Street Experience and bounce from place to place very easily is a very enticing lure.

    WOW ! Thanks for sharing this @Sonya - that video is awesome. Exciting to see a preview of what’s coming in 2020. A marriage of the old and the new downtown :love:
    Could this be the one that once again puts Vegas over the moon? Can’t wait!! :woohoo:
     
    Fingers crossed - it's been almost a year

    Initial reports are that it will cost north of $1B to build. Crazy!

    She is a beauty!!! This is definitely going to lure people from the strip to downtown, in my opinion.

    I’ve never had a desire to stay downtown but if it is anything like the artist renderings, I’ll try it for a night or two. Looks fabulous!!

    I know some of you will probably say "shut up, already" but for a moment I want you to imagine...just imagine instead of Circa on this building, you see "18 Fremont" (in the same type font) on it.

    It would definitely come across as THE place for the type of people that love to see and be seen. A true "destination" place for the beautiful people.

    Ok. I'm done ranting about this Circa thing. It is a beautiful thing that will be the new landmark for Downtown Vegas.

    You'd probably see Boyd's attorneys drooling at the opportunity to sue Stevens for trademark infringement also. I doubt he wants people to confuse his hotel with the Fremont too.

    I would think that it will easily top the $1B price Tag! Excited too see it, it may appear “out of place downtown”.

    Seeing people that look out of place is why we go downtown!
