Casino owners Derek and Greg Stevens announced their new hotel-casino project in downtown Las Vegas on Thursday evening.

The brothers latest endeavor, located at 18 Fremont on the Fremont Street Experience, will be called Circa and be "host, entertainer and ringleader all in one" including home to the biggest sports book in Las Vegas.

The announcement party was held inside the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center as key details about the property were released.

The resort will offer 777 rooms, a range of eclectic restaurants, an outdoor bar, and a two-level casino. Circa will also offer several signature elements including that stadium style sports book and a multi-tiered pool amphitheater.

Circa will be the first brand-new resort built from the ground up in downtown since 1975 and joins other Stevens' properties that include the Golden Gate and the D Las Vegas hotel-casinos.

The new resort is expected to open in December 2020.
