Split Schedule Allows Work to Continue at Circa by Doug Puppel of ENR Southwest

Facing supply-chain challenges and COVID-19 safety restrictions, developers of the $1-billion Circa took an unprecedented step this spring and opted for two completion dates. The casino, pool deck, sportsbook, restaurants and other revenue-generating areas of the property will open in October, while the 777-room hotel tower will have 512 of its rooms coming online near the end of the year.

Circa, which will be the first new resort built in downtown Las Vegas in 40 years, had been on track for an ahead-of-schedule Thanksgiving completion, according to co-owner Derek Stevens, with the tower adding a floor a week in late 2019. He says the construction team was able to refocus that energy and pursue two completion dates instead of one.
