I heard rumors that the unfinished Fontinebleau Las Vegas is getting torn down. I was easily offended by the rumors, and that's something I take personally. I do not want to see a megaresort in Las Vegas getting torn down. The Fontainebleau is a megaresort, and its demolition ain't happening. I just want to see its construction finished and opened.

You were offended? The owner of the property has the right to do whatever it wants with it. If it makes economic sense to tear it down, then by all means the developer should tear it down.

From the concave side, this looks amazing, not so good from the other side.

It would be an incredible shame to demolish this. It's one of the better looking ones in Las Vegas.

It would be unbelievable to demolish a building in which 2 billions were invested already :O

Please do not incite a flame war.

The Fontainebleau does not need to be torn down; by all means, it needs to be saved no matter what. It's not like it's an old, small hotel, or has major structural issues.

I agree, it's no Stardust which was torn down to build a modern new resort. It's no Ryugyong Hotel that stood abandoned for 20 years without cladding.
It's a modern work of architecture which has maybe even become a landmark because it's so huge. I really don't hope they just ignore all the investment what was put into this, by simply torning it down.

Links? Don't spread rumors if you aren't prepared to back them up.


Carl Icahn owns the Fontainebleau. He is worth nearly $20 billion and can afford to complete (or demo) the project. Given the news about Echelon's restart as Resorts World, there's a far greater likelihood that the development will be finished. Vegas is bouncing back much sooner than many had forecast.

I agree, this is not North Korean type of building. Also to remember, unlike that hotel, the Fountainebleau it's mostly covered throughout its facade and has only been there for about 5 years. If anything, they would sell the entire project, but not demolish.

Im not starting a flame war. I simply said that your outlook on the project was unnecessary. If you cant handle a little criticism then perhaps this is not the best site for you.

Well then, don't even bother responding to my posts anymore. Instead of getting personal with you, I'm going to be responsible and put you on my ignore list.

Would be cool if a meter height would be in the thread's name too (its 225 meters)

I really do not want to bump this, but it has been 10 months and there should be some new information?

What improved market conditions? Are they expecting a return to 2007? Just finish the damn thing and cut your losses!
