US: Construction on the 531-room lifestyle hotel Dream Las Vegas has begun, which is set to include seven F&B venues, meeting and event space and a casino.
Developed by Shopoff Realty Investments and Contour, in partnership with Dream Hotel Group, the $550 million project involves architecture firm DLR Group and interior design firms AvroKo, Rockwell Group and DLR Interiors.
The 20-storey hotel is set to open in late 2024, complete with a third-level resort pool and day club, two bar and lounge concepts on the gaming floor, a lobby bar, craft coffee cafe and Gelateria on the ground floor, as well as a sporting club, a boutique nightclub, a fitness centre by TechnoGym, signature restaurant, and 24-hour diner on the third floor.
Of the 12,000 square feet of event space there will be a 5,000 square-foot ballroom and 90-seat live entertainment theatre. The casino will be operated by Peninsula Pacific Entertainment.
Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein said: “All of us at Dream are proud to play a role in creating what will be one of the most spectacular new additions to Las Vegas. It is a destination much like our Dream Hotels brand, marked by a vibrant, youthful energy and dynamic cultural arts and entertainment scene unlike anywhere else in the world. Together with innovative developers Shopoff and Contour, it is our goal to create an experience-driven property that surpasses expectations, blending forward-thinking design, progressive programming and world-class hospitality with unmatched dining and nightlife.
“We are not just building another hotel, we are building an experience,” he added, “and one that we hope will contribute substantially to the future of Las Vegas. Following the successful launch of Dream Hollywood, California in 2017, I have every confidence that Dream Las Vegas will be our newest star of the west coast and a critical addition to our growing portfolio.”
