LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
The downtown Las Vegas casino property that was once known as the Lady Luck has a grand opening date under its new name.
An executive of the revamped and renamed Downtown Grand Hotel and Casino announced Friday a ribbon cutting ceremony set for Tuesday, Nov. 12.
CEO Seth Schorr also said reservations were being accepted for rooms with availability beginning Sunday, Oct. 27.
The opening has become the culmination of a $100 million renovation project to renovate and redesign the property at Third Street and Ogden Avenue. Earlier this year, managers of Downtown Grand, Fifth Street Gaming, began the application process for about 800 new jobs there.
The Downtown Grand planned to feature 634 hotel rooms, about 600 gaming slot machines and 30 table games.
"We have been working hard on this project for several years, and we are very excited to invite our neighbors and guests to enjoy the experiences we've created," Schorr said.
The original Lady Luck casino first opened in 1964 before closing in 2006.
The casino property was planned as the anchor business for the Downtown3rd district, which boasts nearby restaurants and bars.
