Its construction on the Strip stalled for more than a decade, the Fontainebleau Las Vegas finally appears to have momentum for a winter 2023 opening.
The 67-story, blue-glass structure will include a 90,000-square-foot shopping district with 35 luxury retail concepts across two levels, project officials recently announced.
"Fontainebleau Las Vegas' unique vertical design gives us great creative flexibility when it comes to our retail space," Fontainebleau Development president Brett Mufson said. The shopping district will be connected and visible from other areas of the resort, including the 173,000-square-foot casino.
"All facets of the resort have been thoughtfully considered with chic, sophisticated and elegant architectural design and elements that echo the DNA of our brand," Mufson said. "By blending different programmatic elements throughout Fontainebleau Las Vegas, rather than keeping them separate, window shopping and billboarding take on a whole new meaning."
Plans for the Fontainebleau Las Vegas also include about 3,700 hotel rooms; more than 550,000 square feet of convention space, restaurants, pool experiences, nightlife options and spa offerings. The 25-acre property is at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Additional details on the property's retail partners will be announced in the coming months, project officials said.
