Grand Sahara Resort is temporary ‘working name’ for SLS Las Vegas
Meruleo Group said it has not finalized a new name for the recently acquired SLS Las Vegas, but county permits show the listed project name as Grand Sahara Resort.
The name matches social media speculation that spread within hours of Meruelo Group announcing in May 2017 that it had agreed to buy the struggling SLS Las Vegas, formerly the Sahara, from San Francisco-based Stockbridge Capital Group.
“We have not determined the name of the new property. It was a working name at the time that the plans were written up several months ago,” Meruelo Group spokesman Christopher Abraham said Tuesday in reference to the July county filings.
Meruelo Group has filed several permit requests to remodel since receiving Gaming Control Commission approval to acquire SLS Las Vegas at the end of March. Meruelo Group said it would invest up to $100 million in the coming years to revamp the property, including refreshing the game floor and upgrading the pool area.
Clark County issued permits July 3 and on Monday that detail $3.5 million worth of work on an interior remodel at the SLS.
