Built by Turnberry Associates, who also owned the original Fontainebleau resort in Miami Florida.

This has been one of the more secretive megaresort projects in Vegas. Virtually no renderings have been released, yet the hotel is clearly under construction from visual observations. We have photos of samples of the glass as well as ironically enough, a low res model of the hotel found in the massing rendering for a nearby proposed megaresort to the north.

I have found one render from the county archive that the developers submitted, but it is in black and white.

Construction of main tower foundation is underway, with work even extending after dusk.

Excluding the Stratosphere Tower, this is the tallest hotel and building in Vegas under construction right now.

Great, a new Vegas construction thread to follow.

Do you have a link to the planning commission agenda sheet?

The black and white render looks a lot shorter than the model.

Just noticed those pointed things jutting out from the roof. Is that supposed to cast a shadow like the sun dial building in Dubai, or something?

Las Vegas really has entered a new era and is set to become an amazing "skyscraper capital". No more gimmicky nor kitsch resorts that were built during the 90s, even though they will have their place in modern history. Vegas is all about tastefulness in this current construction cycle.

BTW I tried to find a more detailed render of Fontainebleau but without success. If anyone can find 1 or 2, that would be great. I wanna see what a $2.4 billion resort looks like LOL

...and thanks for posting Superfish

The more I look at it, the more unusual the hotel tower seems to be. It has a unique horseshoe shaped curve unlike any other towers, including the newer Curved ones like Wynn.

And then it seems to have two triangle thingys sticking out near the top as well. Could those be swimming pools? (Similar to the Palms but thoseare much smaller and do not stick out that much).

The Zen garden is a nice touch, maybe the hotel will have a light zen theme throughout but that is just speculation.

The hotel seems to make very efficient use of space, leaving almost no large outdoor areas for lakes,etc. on the street as with other resorts. There is a good line of restaurants with outside seating however which serves to brighten up the sidewalk with some activity.

Looks boring. That's the overall impression. I hope it will look better when they add colors to the renderings.

50,000 sq feet of pool features? As in 15 swimming pools? Am I interpreting this right?

Numbers don't lie.

There seems to be an absurd amount of separate pools with on several different pool decks. As Fontainebleau has a decent amount of condo-hotel units, they may want to provide separate pool areas for these owners as opposed to regular hotel guests.

Mark,
Thanks so much for the excellent pictures. I can't believe how fast this thing is coming out of the ground. I know that's just the parking garage/convention space but still, wow. I think Fontainebleau under Glenn Schaeffer's direction will be an amazing resort. Looks like the constuction crane is being errected at the main tower site?
