When The Linq was introduced a couple years ago I used to joke that it may not be real. Ground breaking was delayed a couple of times and little was happening. Well, The Linq exists. There is construction happening and some empty buildings waiting for some exciting tenants to move in, there’s a website and a huge circle (photo above) that will eventually become a ferris wheel. So they say.
Now The Linq will open in phases beginning in December 2013. A few stores will open in December. Some more will open in 2014 and the NAME TBD Ferris Wheel is said to open in the 2nd quarter of 2014.
One day The Linq sounds like it can be a cool mall area to hang out and grab a drink and the next day there’s an announcement about a hat store and this sounds like the corniest place on earth. It’s enough to make a cynic go to a casino and drink soda!
Regardless of how I feel about The Linq…
The giant ferris wheel is big and destined to become the new focal point of the Vegas Strip – for better or worse.
