Las Vegas MLS Stadium – design description
The concept shows preliminary design for a stadium and live-work-play precinct in Las Vegas. Architecturally it may change even fundamentally, however key features should be retained, especially its location. The site spans 62 acres (25 hectares) and is located in Cashman district. West side of the plot lies along Las Vegas Boulevard, which makes it an extension of the famous entertainment strip.
The stadium itself, drawn at Populous, would replace the dated Cashman Field. It would offer a sunroof over the field similar to that at Raiders Stadium. This way cooling for events would be more efficient, alleviating Nevada's heat. The field itself would roll outside. If delivered, it would make Las Vegas the single city worldwide to have two stadia with such feature.
Talks between investor (The Renaissance Companies) and the city of Las Vegas began back in 2017. In June of 2019 both sides entered a 6-month exclusive negotiating agreement in order to work out a final vision and financial structure for the precinct. Its fundamental element is securing an MLS franchise.
