Boasting a $4.3 billion budget and an opening date of summer 2021, the north Strip’s vast Resorts World Las Vegas hotel and casino continues to be a hive of activity during the statewide lockdown, classified as an essential infrastructure operation during the construction phase.
With the high intensity work comes an element of risk and the 88-acre project has recorded seven COVID-19 cases among its employees, while assuring the public it “continues to follow and implement maximum preventative policies and procedures to minimize risk of transmission.”
With much of the 3,500-room hotel structure complete, work has currently turned to the conference rooms and meeting spaces and defining the total 200,000 square feet of proposed food and beverage spaces.
Recent document filings have confirmed the resort’s long announced plans to instill an Asian-influence on its casual dining, with new plans processed this week to build a branded Urban Food Street on the property. Still keeping many details under wraps, next year hotel guests and visitors are promised “authentic street food to Michelin star dining, including concepts new to the Las Vegas Strip.”
And earlier in the month an estimated $1,032,750 construction budget was allocated to an apparent breakfast-focused restaurant, appropriately dubbed on paperwork as Pastries, Eggs and Juice.
The two restaurants join the previously uncovered Crystal Bar, assumed to be connected to a planned Crystal Pool, the Poker Deli and an elegant Conrad hotel lobby bar.
