Treasure Island Las Vegas is expanding its retail footprint. Plans are in the works to construct a new shopping complex at the contemporary, high seas-spirited resort, which is located on the Las Vegas Strip.
“It will have approximately 40,000 usable square feet on three stories,” said Michelle Knoll, vice president of communications at Treasure Island.
Because of the construction as well as the annual maintenance to Sirens Cove, the Sirens of TI show will be temporarily closed from Oct. 21 through Dec. 25, 2013. These dates may change depending on construction schedules. The free 20-minute production featuring temptresses who lure a band of pirates into danger with their sexy songs and dance moves will return on Dec. 26 with performances at 5:30, 7, 8:30 and 10 p.m. (weather permitting).
The new retail component will be built at Treasure Island’s northeast corner with its frontage running along Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road. Some construction work is already under way internally, with fall 2014 targeted as the completion date.
According to Knoll, the first tenant to be signed is CVS. One of the nation’s leading pharmacy and drug store chains, CVS will occupy about 12,000 square feet on the bottom floor of the complex. All of the individual retailers will do their own build-outs.
“It’s not a standalone mall but will be part of Treasure Island,” said Knoll.
Work is expected to be carried on with no interior disruption to guests. Although construction walls will be up along the property’s northeast exterior, all of the entrances to Treasure Island will stay open. During construction, the pedestrian bridge that connects the resort to the Fashion Show mall will also remain open.
