Clark County commissioners on Wednesday approved construction of a hotel one block from Allegiant Stadium. Announced in September, before it had a name, the 19-story, 340-room Nuance Hotel was proposed by New Angle Development for an area along Polaris and Quail avenues.

The hotel, whose construction cost is estimated at $275 million, will include a restaurant, spa, pool bar, rooftop bar, a parking garage, and ballroom and meeting space, according to Clark County documents, but no gaming.

Ground is expected to break early in 2024, providing the latest evidence that the Raiders’ 65K-seat stadium is successfully pushing the Las Vegas Strip in its only undeveloped direction, southward. The Nuance will be built in the new county-designated Stadium District.

“A hotel on the site would be ideal for tourists traveling to Las Vegas for football games and other events at Allegiant Stadium,” the Vegas-based developers wrote in their application submitted to Clark County. “Since the site is within walking distance to the Stadium, it would assist with providing additional hotel options for guests without impacting traffic or parking concerns at the Stadium,”

South of the Current Border

When the Raiders played their first game with fans in attendance at Allegiant on Sept. 13, 2021, the team’s new $1.9 billion home instantly transformed the Strip’s southern tip into its brand-new sports hub.

Since then, LA-based developers the Oak View Group have announced plans for what they hope will be the Strip’s future southern end. Their $3B, NBA-ready arena and entertainment district, with 20K seats and a 2,000-room casino hotel, is scheduled to begin construction next year. It will be located in the former sticks at Blue Diamond Road, a little more than five miles south of Mandalay Bay.

Slated to debut in 2026, it will occupy 25 acres near the intersection of I-15 and I-215, adjacent to the Las Vegas terminal for the planned Brightline high-speed rail between L.A. and Las Vegas.

“South of the Las Vegas Strip represents one of the few areas of potential future growth of the gaming and entertainment corridor,” said Tim Leiweke, CEO of the Oak View Group, in a press release.
