This Las Vegas project has the potential to become a major draw in the market while transforming the Gaucho brand into a household name. We’re excited to know that LVH Holdings has been working with SB Architects to lead the design. SB Architects are specialists in hotel and hospitality design, with major projects that include the Omni PGA Frisco Resort, Amara Hotel and Residences, and Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carton Reserve, as well as Calistoga Ranch, an Auberge Resort, among others. As we’ve said before, we’re seeking the best, and we are getting the best. If this project comes to fruition as we expect, it can have a positive transformational effect on the market value of Gaucho Holdings. Stay tuned.”
