The famous Las Vegas Strip is about to get a major addition in the form of the Cuningham Group’s All Net Resort and Arena, a $1.4 billion mixed-use and entertainment project backed by former NBA player and first-time developer Jackie Robinson (not to be confused with the famous baseball player of the same name). The ambitious project includes an 860,000-square-foot multi-purpose arena, a 300,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza, and, crowning it all, a 44-story combo boutique and five-star hotel and spa.
The sphere-shaped, NBA-regulation arena, which Robinson hopes to use to lure an NBA team to Las Vegas, will feature a retractable roof and operable curtain walls to open to the desert climate. The venue was designed to accommodate open-air concerts and other large events. The arena’s skin will be animated by a matrix of programmable LED screens.
Victory Plaza, a 300,000-square-foot streetscape lined with retail and restaurants, is being billed as a Times Square-like experience with Las Vegas sensibilities. Planned to be the social heart of the urban-scaled project, it includes pedestrian walkways, event spaces, rooftop dining, and public balconies overlooking the street below.
At 44-stories, the All Net Resort Hotel will be one of the tallest hotels on the Strip. Part of the tower includes 500 specialty rooms, each with a private spa.
