VIDEO: David Manica gives an Exclusive Tour of Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium
In this video, David Manica and Keith Robinson of MANICA Architecture tour Allegiant Stadium for the first time in many months. Besides marveling at the realisation of their design work, they share some insights about the building and some of the “firsts” that make it one of the most unique stadiums in the world.
Located adjacent to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, Allegiant Stadium will be a global events destination, highlighted by the arrival of the NFL’s iconic Las Vegas Raiders.
Allegiant Stadium will be ideally located for both visitors and locals, fully enclosed and climate-controlled with a capacity of 65,000, the technologically advanced stadium will host world-class entertainment including concerts and sporting events such as the Pac-12 Championship Game and Las Vegas Bowl, as well as becoming the future home of UNLV Football.
The stadium project is expected to generate an economic benefit of US$620m annually, while creating 6,000 permanent jobs in Southern Nevada.
Allegiant Stadium is nearing completion in Paradise, Nevada, for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League (NFL) and the UNLV Rebels football team of the University of Nevada.
Construction of the US$1.8bn stadium began on September 18, 2017, and is expected to be completed later this year.
