Las Vegas has continued to transform throughout the decades. The early 90s shaped Vegas as a destination city with the development of three mammoth casino developments that are still standing tall today. In 1999, The Strip added some 10,000 new hotel rooms and business was booming. Now, Las Vegas is taking the next step in developing its bustling city with more than 15 renovations being completed by the end of 2020.
2020 will commence an exciting decade for Las Vegas with more than $3.3 billion going towards projects around the city. The city is expected to add exactly 1,969 new hotel rooms, bringing the number of total hotel rooms to a whopping 152,201.
Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority data shows that occupancy rates stagger around an excellent 90 percent, so experts are confident that the developments will keep those rates high.
Beyond just new hotel rooms, Las Vegas is renovating present hotel-casinos such as the Hard Rock Hotel and Sahara Las Vegas.
The upcoming year will also see the opening of the Las Vegas Stadium. With 65,000 seats and the new home of the Raiders, the stadium is set to open before the start of the 2020 NFL season. The building will include retractable doors and a translucent polymer roof.
Another 2020 grand opening will be the Caesars Forum Convention Center next to the Linq Promenade. The convention center will make up 300,000 square feet of meeting space and another 100,000 for an outdoor plaza and will be connected via walkway to The Linq Hotel, Harrah’s and Flamingo. Another convention center, Wynn Convention Center, is set to open its 400,000 square feet venue in March 2020, located just north of Sands Avenue.
Other openings include Circa Resort and Casino, Hampton Inn & Suites/Home2 Suites, AC Hotel by Marriott, Downtown Las Vegas Expo Center, Downtown Grand, Showcase Mall, and a Google data center.
Other renovations include Harrah’s, Skyline Hotel and Casino expansion, South Point renovation, Las and Vegas Convention Center expansion.
