Star of 'Pawn Stars' TV show plans shopping plaza near famous Las Vegas shop to develop area

The co-owner of the Las Vegas shop featured in the reality show "Pawn Stars" hopes a shopping center he's proposing will lure the long lines of tourists who visit his famous store.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports ( ) that Rick Harrison is drawing up plans for a Pawn Star Plaza that could boast six restaurants and about 16 small shops.

The plaza would consist of several modular units fit together like a Rubik's Cube. Harrison says he was inspired by the nearby Container Park that's built out of shipping containers commonly found on trains and barges.

Harrison's Gold & Silver Pawn Shop is in a gritty area near bail-bond offices and a now-closed tattoo parlor. He says he wants to help the area without using city redevelopment funds.
