Set to open sometime around Christmas (perhaps a few days before, mayhap a few days after), the still forthcoming Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally's are beginning to see more than a little splash of color.
awful jarring WTF as the exterior paint job The Quad continues to receive, the brightly patterned honeycomb design is still a bit, umm, much. VegasChatter reader Dan H. sent us the trio of photos you see below that show the mall's, err, design treatment is now being put into place. They were taken on the north side of the project from Flamingo Road.
The retail scene in Las Vegas (and its suburbs) is rapidly changing at the moment. With Downtown Summerlin poised to open and Fashion Show Mall expanding its façade, it’s time for the outlets to keep up with the Joneses. They seemed to weather the economic downturn easier than other retail outlets with a steady stream of tourists cabbing it over to the Premium Outlets on either end of the Strip to scoop up outlet-priced clothing and accessories.
Las Vegas North Premium Outlets, located downtown near The Smith Center, will be wrapping up a 150,000-square-foot expansion May 2015. The project is expected to welcome 34 new stores including an already announced Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th. The last expansion in 2008 added a new parking garage on the north side and 30 new stores.

As we reported in June, Fashion Show Mall is preparing for a façade facelift and the addition of several new dining and shopping options. Construction walls are now up along the mall's Las Vegas Boulevard frontage and feature renderings of what this huge chunk of Strip-side real estate will look like when the project is finished.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports five new restaurants will be included within the 22,000-square-foot addition as well as an expansion for Zara, one of the façade’s anchors. The men’s and women’s clothing store has risen in popularity and is ready to grow with the changing front side of the mall.
After a January groundbreaking, work continues to progress on a 50,000-square-foot space located just yards from the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. Set for a fall opening (a more specific timeline is not yet ready to be announced although October has been bandied about), visitors will be able to purchase and rent hogs on site. There will be a retail store for souvenirs, too, meaning government planners should probably think about creating a pedestrian walkway from the sign over to the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard if they haven't already.

The North Strip finally seems to be headed for the revival long imagined, but never realized. SLS Las Vegas, a re-imagined, renovated and renamed Sahara, will open its doors at midnight on August 23 following a $415 million transformation. But, what about the other elements now in play?
Across the Strip from SLS, MGM Resorts' $20 million City of Rock will debut with the US arrival of Rock in Rio in May 2015. The plan is for the outdoor festival grounds to host up to 12 (possibly 16) events a year, however, a representative has stated no other events are on the books right now beyond the mega-concert event.
The north Strip could be a whole new world come 2018. That's when the new owner of the old Frontier site expects to debut a new resort on the acreage.
On Sunday, headlines broke that billionaire James Packer had acquired controlling interest of the long dormant plot. The Frontier came down in a flash in November 2007, but plans to build a Plaza on the site -- what would have been a sister venue to the New York Plaza and not the Downtown Vegas one -- stalled.

A VegasChatter tipster tells us a T-Mobile flagship store has been signed for the corner across from The Cromwell. It will join some 150+ brands at the outdoor mall that will mostly feature retailers of the tiny kiosk variety but with a few larger shops and a handful of eateries sprinkled in, too.

In December, we told you how the aging resort was betting big on a casino floor revamp. One month later, we filled you in on plans for a new fast-casual dining experience that would replace Ming's Table and The Cafe at Harrah's.
Everywhere you look on The Strip, the focus is on The Strip. From new walk-up eateries at Monte Carlo to the coming open-air Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally's, it's no longer about stepping out. It's about maybe never stepping into the resort proper, at all. And, it's not just the mega-resorts with a new game afoot.

The best worst dive bar on The Strip is no more.
Zinger's, known for its karaoke and definitely not for its food, has closed at Hawaiian Marketplace. That's the strip mall across from Aria. You know, where they're building that Chili's? In fact, we hear the chain's two-story takeover of a large section of Hawaiian Marketplace is to blame for the shutter of Zinger's.
Usually in Vegas, history drops away as fast as a few charges of TNT will allow. With the demolition of The Harmon, the center Strip condo-hotel that never opened due to construction defects, it will be a process covering many months. MGM Resorts execs have stated its erasure will take a year to complete.

We first told you the news back in November. The chain restaurant, currently taking over more than 8,600 square feet at the strip mall, will boast an outdoor balcony when complete. Our @sammasseur captured new images of the construction over the weekend.
