Iconic Sahara Hotel on Las Vegas’ Strip undergoing $415 million makeover

March 04, 2013

The former Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas is undergoing a $415 million renovation and will be reborn as the SLS Las Vegas hotel and casino. The basic structure of the building will remain intact, but all ties to the Sahara will be removed. A spokesperson for SLS Las Vegas says the property will be transformed inside and out to become more like the swanky boutique hotels SLS has across the country. The Sahara closed in 2011 after nearly 60 years on the Strip. The project will create 1,600 construction jobs, and work should be completed in late 2014.
