The shuttered Lady Luck hotel-casino will soon be wiped from the downtown Las Vegas skyline and be reborn as the Downtown Grand.
Removal of Lady Luck signage from the hotel was delayed recently by high winds, but Fifth Street Gaming CEO Seth Schorr, who is overseeing the remake of the property, said other changes continue on schedule. This includes recruitment of an executive team to run the Downtown Grand as well as construction work inside the property.
“We are proud of being downtown, we love being downtown,” Schorr said.
The revival of the dormant property is crucial in advancing city officials’ plans for a downtown rejuvenation.The property is the closest resort to the $42 million, taxpayer-funded Mob Museum, which will open in February and will be an anchor for the downtown area.
When the project is complete, the Downtown Grand will have a 50,000-square-foot casino, 11 restaurants, seven bars and 22,000 square feet of retail space over 6.27 acres, according to a project profile.
