Las Vegas Chinatown is booming!

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – A valley neighborhood is expanding beyond what it’s known for. Chinatown is quickly becoming more than just great Chinese cuisine.

"A few years ago, this area was filled with industrial warehouses, industrial spaces pretty much. Now it’s one of the hottest properties in Las Vegas and a lot of it has to do with Chinatown which is really great."

The president of the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce, Sonny Vinuya, says Las Vegas’s Chinatown is unique in that we are more of an "Asiantown."

"Las Vegas’s Chinatown is comprised of diversity," said Vinuya.

Vinuya says there are 300 Asian-owned businesses, not counting foot spas, on Spring Mountain Road from Valley View to Rainbow Boulevard. A new plaza under construction will open 40 new businesses by the end of the year.

"It’s like Chinatown Plaza 2," said Vinuya.

One of the most interesting businesses to open up recently is a luxury apartment complex, Lotus.

It features around a dozen amenities aimed a younger crowd like a karaoke room, a virtual reality sports room, and a bark park.

Apartments Lotus, near Spring Mountain and Valley View, will cost you between $1,200 and $2,500.
