Hip New Hood? The South Strip

When Michael Gaughan Jr. looks south of Mandalay Bay on the Strip, he sees a continuous line of new development fed by an influx of housing east of Interstate 15 as well as by frequent visitors driving in from Southern California.

"This will be the gateway to the Las Vegas Valley for Southern California," said Gaughan, the son of Coast Casinos' chief executive and the manager of the upcoming South Coast casino resort on Las Vegas Boulevard South. "I'd say 10 years from now most of the space will be filled in. I also see some (developments) torn down and built up at a greater density."

The $500 million South Coast, five miles south of Mandalay Bay, is scheduled to open early next year with 662 rooms, a 16-theater movieplex, seven restaurants, an equestrian center, 2,400 slot machines and 150,000 square feet of event space at Las Vegas Boulevard and Silverado Ranch Road.
