Restaurants, a movie theater, a retractable roof on the arena and more are part of the big plans on the north end of the Strip.

Here now, a look at the $1.4 billion All Net Resort & Arena, set to open in early 2017. The new 27-acre arena, shopping and dining district and 44-story hotel are bordered by SLS Las Vegas, the Riviera, Circus Circus and the Westgate Las Vegas on the north end of the Strip near Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. The 860,000-square-foot arena plans to have a retractable roof with Victory Plaza, a 300,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza flowing from Las Vegas Boulevard to Paradise Road. Also on the agenda, a 44-story, boutique, five-star spa hotel with 500 specialty suites.

Cuningham Group Architecture is behind the look that "embodies the spirit of Las Vegas" and creating a "grand public gathering spaces for the people of Las Vegas."

The 22,000-seat All Net Arena takes its design inspiration from the barrel cactus and will feature animated lights and color through LED screens. The glass walls that wrap the exterior will mimic the cactus with "a network of spines." A retractable roof as well as "exterior curtain walls" are also part of the look and can be opened during cooler weather. Cuningham Group says the arena is designed to the specifications of National Basketball Association professional teams and events.

The 300,000-square-foot Victory Plaza plans to include retail and restaurants on a "streetscape designed for pedestrians." Interactive lights and signs "comparable to a Times Square experience" will be part of the decor here. Expect rooftop dining and balconies. Pedestrians weave through the property from Las Vegas Boulevard to Paradise Road lined with landscaping, shade structures, unnamed food and retail establishments with outdoor seating, staging and water features. Victory Plaza connects to the resort hotel and a monorail station.

The 500 specialty suites at the proposed hotel each contain a private spa area for in-room spa and salon services. Above the 44th floor is a rooftop pool and lounge with views of Victory Plaza and Las Vegas Boulevard. Some of the specialty suites will even feature an outdoor private pool terrace. A restaurant with a private lounge, an wedding chapel and reception area, a specialty clothing and jewelry boutique, and a full-service spa are all included, as well as a 16-screen cineplex.
