Miracle Mile Shops plans 60,000-sq.-ft retail/restaurant redevelopment
Las Vegas — Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino has begun planning efforts to convert space Harmon Avenue, a 60,000-sq.-ft. area on Miracle Mile Shops’ south end that draws in heavy foot traffic from Las Vegas Boulevard into a restaurant and entertainment destination.
Once completed, the area will feature a completely redesigned look and feel as well as multiple new concepts. The center is currently working with KGA Architecture on designs to create the entirely new pedestrian experience. Construction on the area is expected to begin in 2015.
“Our goal is to create a walk-able, fun destination activated with day-life and nightlife including live music and restaurants with indoor and outdoor dining,” said Jerry Irwin, general manager of Miracle Mile Shops.
While plans for the Harmon Avenue area continue developing, several new stores are set to open throughout other areas of the center.
