Las Vegas Downtown Fremont Street is in revitalization as key components to the rundown downtown Las Vegas area is being transformed into entertainment venues.
The City of Las Vegas is serious about Fremont Street, between Las Vegas Boulevard and 8th Street, becoming the French Quarter of the West and give it a reputation as a entertainment and music district, even naming it “Fremont East.”
“We really do want it to be like Bourbon Street in New Orleans or Beale Street in Memphis,” said Steve van Gorp, the city’s redevelopment manager in the office of business development. “A real hopping district in the next couple of years.”
“We’ve worked with the owner’s association for a couple of years to get the district going,” van Gorp said. “It’s a public-private partnership to build the streetscape.”
A mixture of boarded-up properties, small businesses in old buildings and a new entertainment haunt now operate in the area. The Las Vegas City and the district’s owners association is scheduled to embark on a $6 million landscape plan in August to make over this stretch of road.
The street will be remade with a downtown Las Vegas history 1950s retro theme that includes 40-foot neon signs down the median and gateways over each end of the district. The plan also calls for a widening of the existing sidewalks to allow for cafes and a narrowing of the street.
Unlike the Las Vegas Downtown Fremont Street Experience, this portion of the street will remain open to vehicular traffic, closing only during peak business times of weekend nights and New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas.
