Take a Look at the Vision for The Venue of Vegas

Surprising signs of life at the future site of The Venue of Vegas, the multi-function event space first proposed for East Fremont seven years ago. The foundation is being dug up and a new rendering is on display, making the project look more feasible than at any time in its long gestation.

Located just down the block from the Container Park, the 43,000-square-foot building hopes to serve tourists and locals with its dining and entertainment and also create a niche market at as a destination for bookers looking to host large catered events for charities, corporate events and weddings.

Original plans called for a comedy room, pizza lounge, various bars, a billiards room, a nightclub and concert venue.

The current updated rendering from NOVUS Architecture posted outside the construction site, promotes "concerts, comedy shows, food/drink." The two balconies seen in the original renderings are still a prominent attraction.

Anaheim, Calif.-based developer Valley of the Sun Las Vegas bought this plot in 2007 for $3.9 million. The Venue of Vegas will be a sequel to a very similar and successful concept in Scottsdale, Ariz., also called The Venue, which specializes in private events.

In November 2013, a late 2014 completion date was floated, but the full scale of this ground-up construction project makes that look unlikely.
