LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Fontainebleau is no more. Call it The Drew Las Vegas. The hulking, bluish casino-resort, which has sat unfinished on the Las Vegas Strip since 2009 and became a poster child of the Great Recession, is now scheduled to open in late 2020 under a partnership between hospitality g...

Las Vegas’ latest building boom: NFL stadium and new resorts

https://www.latimes.com/travel/lasvegas/la-tr-travel-las-vegas-resorts-world-building-boom-20190503-story.html

Travelers will see a different Las Vegas in the coming months, including a new NFL stadium for the coming Las Vegas Raiders, two new resort complexes and a convention center expansion. They’re all part of the city’s biggest development boom on or near the Strip in more than a decade, said Steve Hill, chief exeuctive of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

When all the work is finished, the growth spurt will have created the new home for the Raiders team, which is set to move from Oakland to Vegas for the 2020-21 season.

Las Vegas cityscape is changing with the addition of more hotels and a stadium for the newly minted football team slated to relocate from Oakland for the 2020-21 season.

Opening of Drew Las Vegas pushed back until 2022

Developer Steve Witkoff has pushed back the former Fontainebleau’s opening date, delaying the debut of Las Vegas’ towering monument to the recession.

Witkoff’s namesake firm announced Tuesday that the 67-story Drew Las Vegas is slated to open in the second quarter of 2022.

That follows his announcement early last year that the blue-tinted hotel-casino – one of the tallest buildings in Las Vegas – was expected to debut in late 2020.

The unfinished resort, mothballed a decade ago, has for years been a towering, blighted reminder of Las Vegas’ wild real estate boom and devastating crash. Witkoff’s purchase nearly two years ago set the high-rise on a path to finally opening, though as shown this week, that day is now expected to come more than a year later than he previously envisioned.

If all goes as planned, the resort would spark new life at the north end of the Strip. That section of Las Vegas’ famed casino corridor has been marked by big, vacant lots, unfinished projects and slow foot traffic, but it could see a turnaround in coming years with Witkoff’s hotel, the Chinese-themed Resorts World Las Vegas and an expanding Las Vegas Convention Center nearby.

New York developer Steve Witkoff has pushed back the former Fontainebleau’s opening date, delaying the debut of Las Vegas’ towering monument to the recession.

New construction, enhancements, and upgrades are in the works, as developers ramp up plans to move ahead with several projects in the area. New casinos could add as many as 7,000 rooms to the north end of the strip, which has seen very little development since the economic downturn in 2008.

Fontainebleau Casino Owner Throws Light and Optimism about Planned 2020 Launch

A poster child of the Las Vegas Great Recession crash and burn, the unfinished Fontainebleau casino resort is now expected to bring life to an underdeveloped but what investors consider a very promising section of the Strip.

The property’s owner, real estate developer Steven Witkoff, provided this weekend updates on the ambitious project for the completion and planned 2020 launch of the complex. Mr. Witkoff participated in an event at the Southpoint Casino over the weekend. Tax reform was the main focus of the event, which was also attended by US President Donald Trump, a former casino owner himself.

Mr. Witkoff said that the Trump administration’s tax incentives were one of the factors that contributed to his decision to purchase Fontainebleau and hopefully turn it into a successful operation.

The Drew Las Vegas - Wikipedia

The Drew Las Vegas (formerly known as Fontainebleau Las Vegas) is an unfinished resort, condominium, and casino on the Las Vegas Strip on the 24.5-acre (9.9 ha) site previously occupied by the El Rancho Hotel and Casino and the Algiers Hotel in Wi******er, Nevada. It was intended to be a sister property to the well-known 1950s-era Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel. Excluding the nearby Stratosphere observation tower, the Fontainebleau's 68-floor hotel/condominium building is the tallest building in Las Vegas and in the state.

Fontainebleau Las Vegas was announced in May 2005, with initial plans to begin construction by March 2006, and to have the resort opened by 2008. Construction began in February 2007, but was stopped in 2009, when the project went into bankruptcy. The project, upon completion, was expected to include: a 95,000 sq ft (8,800 m2) casino, a 60,000 sq ft (5,600 m2) spa, 3,300-seat performing arts theater, 2,871 hotel rooms, 1,018 condominium units, 180,000 sq ft (17,000 m2) of retail space, 400,000 sq ft (37,000 m2) of indoor and outdoor conference space, nightclubs, and 24 restaurants and lounges.[6]

The building was designed by Carlos Zapata Studio with Bergman Walls Associates as the architect of record. In August 2017, the unfinished resort was sold to investment firms Witkoff Group and New Valley LLC for $600 million. The new owners plan to resume construction in 2018 and open the resort in late 2020.

Yes, The Drew.

We had the same reaction, but it will presumably have a casino, so we’ll cut them some slack.
