Derek Stevens and his brother started out several years buying into The Golden Gate Casino downtown Las Vegas. Then they purchased Fitzgerald’s and remodeled and branded as The D. The brothers also bought the property located by The D and built The Downtown Events Center. Now their largest project yet is revealed.
Construction is expected to begin next month for the first from-the-ground-up downtown resort in decades. The property’s doors scheduled to open in December 2020. The cost of the project hasn’t been revealed.
The name was disclosed Thursday at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center after Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman’s State of the City address.
For Derek and Greg Stevens, Detroiters who have passionately followed the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings for years and own downtown’s D Las Vegas and Golden Gate properties, it was essential that the sports book be a Circa centerpiece.
