Fontainebleau Las Vegas, a 67-story casino resort at the north end of the Strip is targeting to open in fourth quarter of 2023. The hotel will feature more than 3,700 rooms, more than 550,000 square feet of convention space, and a collection of restaurants and shops, pool, spa and wellness offerings.
“We are grateful to have the opportunity to finish what we started and finally introduce the iconic Fontainebleau brand into one of the world’s largest hospitality destinations,” says Fontainebleau Development Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Soffer. “We have been extremely selective when it comes to expanding our brand. Las Vegas has always been our number one choice. The building is in mint condition, and we have already commenced construction. We are excited to make this dream a reality.”
Fontainebleau Development and partner Koch Real Estate Investments acquired the property in February 2021. The project is 75 percent complete, and, upon opening, Fontainebleau Development will be the sole hotel operator of Fontainebleau Las Vegas.
The property spans 25 acres and approximately nine million square feet on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, directly adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center new west hall.
Fontainebleau Development has retained acclaimed Las Vegas builder Richardson Construction to complete construction of the property, and the company will announce additional design and development partners in the coming months.
