The north end of the Las Vegas Strip will spring back to life, with the promise of jobs and revenue, at the site of the old Sahara.

Hospitality company sbe on Thursday announced the groundbreaking for SLS Las Vegas, described as a high-energy resort and casino with more than 1,600 rooms and suites.

The company is promising 8,600 direct and indirect jobs and an infusion of approximately $400 million into the local economy. The property is slated to open in the fall of 2014.

"This investment will create thousands of jobs, infuse millions into the local economy and help bring new energy to the north end of the Strip. I have supported this project from the outset and am so pleased that SLS Las Vegas is officially breaking ground," said Nevada Sen. Harry Reid.

The property will house several restaurants including The Griddle Café, well known in Los Angeles for its breakfast, lunch, dessert and cocktail menus.

Besides restaurants, you'll find four nightclubs and seven Fred Segal-branded boutiques.
