north vegas Strip is currently comprised of:
stratosphere, Circus circus, and Sahara/SLS

1) SLS was sold this year and new owner plans $100M renovation starting in 2019.
It's likely to be named “Grand Sahara Resort.”

2) Fontainebleau
- Financier Carl Icahn purchased the project for $150 million after it's 2009 bankruptcy
- last year, he sold it for $600M
- New owners plan to open it in late 2020

3) Echelon (combination of former Stardust/Frontier casino sites)
- The Genting Group bought it from Boyd gaming and will be named Resorts World Vegas.
- they are optimistic about its chances to open in 2020


edit:
clarified North as north vegas strip.

Sorry but I've gotta correct this bit of confusion:

No! None of those places are in or near "North Vegas." And the linked Forbes article does not assert that they are, and it even goes out of it's way to make that very relevant fact of the geography clear. This is absolutely positively NOT "North Vegas." As the article correctly describes, this is about the "North STRIP" which is located south of Las Vegas, continues further and further south away from the City, and is absolutely nowhere near North Las Vegas.

all that's nice but the billion dollar question is

Why should anyone go to these casinos when there are so many around?

With all this competition, maybe some of these casinos will bring back 3-2 BJ and single zero roulette wheels...

You can get all those things downtown at the GN, Golden Gate, etc. Although I don't know, some of those options might also be offered at the "lesser" casino so on the strip. The Monte Carlo and Linque (nice properties though) might have it. Although I've never stayed there I've heard that both the Luxor and Exalibur are dumps s maybe there too.

SLS just changed ATS to standard strip payouts a few months ago. Those NORTH properties are not going to make it better for players. That is why they are all dead. Dead means quiet during day time and night time. The only time they have some business is on Friday and Saturday night. SLS posts $25 min. on craps but you can bet $10. Seriously, you can bet $10. If SLS does not change its mentality, no matter how much money they put into, they will never get business.

I think the Strip needs to start expanding East-West instead of North-South.

I always wondered why that didn't happen. Why not make another strip towards the rio. Or maybe behind Ballys towards ellis.

Will never happen. The kind of people that stay at the fancy places do not know or care about better rules. They like a fancy place that looks nice. Best chance to get a place good for players on the Strip is to dig up Frank Rosenthal and get him out of the Black Book.

What am I missing. I played 3:2 BJ S17 DAS with surrender at Bellagio a couple months ago.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
