Move Over Las Vegas Strip, Fremont St. Adding a Bold New Casino
Circa is a new resort casino on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The area has a rougher reputation than the Las Las Vegas Strip. It's a contrast to the Strip, which is known for its glitz and glamour. The new casino will be the latest development on the downtown area. There are many casinos and entertainment venues on LasVegasy Strip now.
Red Rock Resorts operates 10 casinos in Las Vegas. Frank Fertitta III and his brother Lorenzo FERTitta run the company and its Station Casino brand. They also own Zuffa Entertainment, the sports company that brought the Ultimate Fighting Championship to prominence.
Red Rock Resorts wants to build a new Wildfire Casino on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The project will cost $750 million and occupy more than 21,000 square feet on a five-acre plot. Red Rock wants the project to be more of a brand for locals. It has a number of Las Las Vegans-area projects underway, including the Durango Resort Casino in the Southwest Valley.
