Fontainebleau Las Vegas officially opened yesterday on the Las Vegas Strip. The 67-story casino resort features 3,644 guest rooms and suites, 550,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, 150,000 square feet of gaming space, a collection ow restaurants, shops, pools, a theater, and a nightclub. 

Located on nearly 25 acres adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall, Fontainebleau Las Vegas was first conceived by Fontainebleau Development Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Soffer in 2005. The project stopped construction in 2008 during the Global Financial Crisis. After a few changes of ownership, Soffer acquired back the property in 2021 in partnership with Koch Real Estate Investments. 

At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom presented the Key to the Las Vegas Strip to Soffer to celebrate the grand opening.

Carlos Zapata Studio has been retained to develop all exterior architecture. David Collins Studio and its Chief Creative Officer Simon Rawlings created the overall design ethos and Rockwell Group designed multiple food and beverage concepts, nightclub, dayclub, sportsbook, gaming area, and fitness center. 

Lissoni & Partners designed the spa, floral designer Jeff Leatham created the floral arrangements throughout the property, and Lifescapes International created the landscape environment throughout the property. 

Fontainebleau Development’s portfolio includes Big Easy Casino, Fontainebleau Miami Beach, JW Marriott Turnberry Resort & Spa, Hilton Downtown Nashville, and numerous residential buildings such as Turnberry Ocean Club, Turnberry Ocean Colony, Porto Vita, the Tresor and Sorrento towers at Fontainebleau Miami Beach. The company has also built nine residential towers in Las Vegas, including Turnberry Towers and Signature (in partnership with MGM Resorts International).
