The Treasure Island Strip facing remodel is even more massive than first reported by Eater Vegas and will include a restaurant that needs to be happy sharing space with a possible car showroom and an exterior decorated in "vivid hues."
The three-story, 70-foot tall, 46,200-square-foot addition will steal away some of the lagoon space on the northeastern side of the property at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road. The pirate ship that sinks nightly during the Sirens of T.I. live performance will remain unscathed.
The shopping center will include 14,600-square-feet on the first floor, 15,000-square-feet on the second and 16,600-square-feet up top. Once built, they will carve up the area for the tenants. But a restaurant and a pharmacy are foremost in their minds. The resort is also considering the inclusion of a car showroom, a resort concept already in use diagonally across the street at Wynn. A large Walgreen's pharmacy is also across the street at the Venetian.
The future restaurant tenant will inherit an exterior displaying bright colors described as matching the shades and style of its neighbor Senor Frog's Bar & Restaurant.
The facades of the building will feature "varying geometrical shapes and depths" and parapet walls on the roof. The advanced plans are currently at the the Zoning Commission board level and the expansion is proceeding without much opposition.
