Six months after first filing permit paperwork to bring fast casual burger legends White Castle downtown, developers Herbst Richardson have finally confirmed the brand's famous sliders are on the way.
Taking over 3,428 square feet at the corner of Fremont and Fourth streets, White Castle will slot into the former home of a $10 discount store, T-shirt shop and cigar store, sharing the 5,615-square-foot building with a revamped Harley Davidson retail venture.
Representative Bob Richardson told the Las Vegas Review-Journal the project is "definitely moving forward," without hinting at an estimated open date. Still an empty shell inside, since the Nov. 16 initial permit application the project has run through a handful of revisions and slowed an early momentum.
On paper, the expansion is known as White Castle Downtown, a sibling to the first Las Vegas White Castle, still serving around the clock since its stunningly successful January 2015 debut at the Best Western Plus Casino Royale casino.
The Strip venue sells Las Vegas-themed merchandise, or "swag" including mugs, apparel, and empty "crave cases" and also lets the impatient or hungry order online for local delivery or pick up at the restaurant. Details of what to expect downtown have not yet been revealed.
