Movie Studio in Summerlin

Two prominent corporations, backed by actor, Mark Wahlberg, are advancing their plans to construct a $1.8 billion movie studio and mixed-use complex in Summerlin. The ambitious venture, a collaboration between Howard Hughes Holdings, known for its development work in Summerlin, and Sony Entertainment, received approval from the Clark County Zoning Commission on Wednesday. Expected to generate employment opportunities, the project could potentially create 10,000 jobs in west Las Vegas. Following the approval, the Clark County Zoning Commission greenlit various variances necessary for the development of Summerlin Production Studios and the adjacent mixed-use development situated on Town Center Drive, just off the 215 Beltway. Upon completion, the project will comprise 10 structures, encompassing approximately 500,000 square feet, tailored to accommodate a state-of-the-art film studio and production facility.

Oakland A’s Move to Vegas

Las Vegas edges closer to becoming the home of the A’s baseball team as the Tropicana prepares for closure this April, signaling the end of an era. Although plans for a new baseball stadium & entertainment complex on the grounds remain years away from fruition, projections suggest the A’s might not relocate until at least 2028. Recent reports suggest that fans won’t have to wait too long to see the A’s in action, as the team is anticipated to play some of their 2025 home games in Summerlin at the Las Vegas Aviators’ stadium, marking a promising step towards a future partnership.

New Mt. Charleston Lodge

Mount Charleston Lodge, a sight we’ve sorely missed for nearly three years. For those unaware, the cherished destination atop the mountain succumbed to flames in 2021. The lodge, a longstanding fixture since the 1960s, was lost in the blaze. The new lodge promises to impress, boasting 25,000 square feet of space, expansive outdoor decks offering sweeping mountain vistas, a restaurant, multiple bars, and a cozy fireplace. Additionally, there will be a dedicated area for weddings and events, along with ample parking facilities. According to reports from KTNV, Steelman Partners anticipates completing the project documentation by August. Groundbreaking is slated for the first half of 2025, marking a significant step towards the lodge’s revival.

The Sphere

Following much anticipation, the Sphere has finally opened its doors, making waves globally with a debut residency by U2. The performances capitalize on the venue’s expansive high-definition wraparound video wall, seamlessly transitioning between virtual environments with each song. Audiences are treated to “Postcard From Earth,” a captivating 50-minute film by Academy Award-nominated director Darren Aronofsky, offering immersive glimpses of the seven continents with a sci-fi twist. The MSG Sphere, a 500-foot-wide, 360-foot-tall spherical concert arena boasts exterior digital screens & is revolutionizing live events with internet access at every seat & personalized sound beamed directly to each spectator, ushering in a new era of entertainment.


After years of remaining dormant since the onset of the Great Recession in 2009, the Fontainebleau is finally reopened. Towering over Las Vegas at 67 stories tall, it claims the title of the city’s tallest building (excluding the Strat), boasting nearly 4,000 hotel rooms. To rejuvenate the north end of the Strip, the project features a wide array of amenities including restaurants, shops, convention spaces, & a bustling casino floor. Drawing inspiration from its namesake in Miami Beach, the resort will emulate South Florida’s vibrant nightlife, highlighted by the introduction of a new iteration of the renowned LIV Nightclub. Kicking off the festivities, Post Malone graced the stage at the 3,800-seat BleauLive Theater for a pair of concerts over the New Year’s Eve weekend, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Fontainebleau.

Cheri at Paris

The rooftop lounge formerly known as Chateau is transforming into Cheri. While guests will continue to relish in panoramic views of the Bellagio fountains & savor drinks from two bars amidst garden-themed décor & elegant chandeliers, the ambiance will take on a more modern flair. Live musicians & dancers will enhance the DJ performances, infiltrating a dynamic energy into the space. Managed by JRS Hospitality (the same team behind neighboring Beer Park), the 9,000-square-foot venue boasts a sophisticated design by Campbell House, blending elements of Parisian charm with the allure of Las Vegas for a truly distinctive experience.


At the Palms, the revival of classic concepts is breathing new life into the venue. Ghostbar, which briefly transformed into Apex Social Club, has made a triumphant return, reclaiming its spot on the 55th floor with breathtaking panoramic views of the Strip. The refurbished Ghostbar boasts updated decor, an entirely new cocktail program featuring flights & bottle service, & an enhanced entertainment lineup. Whether you’re dancing the night away to the latest DJ beats or unwinding with the soulful sounds of Dee Miles and her “Midnight Skye” show on weekends, there’s something for everyone. With comfortable seating both indoors in the main lounge & outdoors on the patio, Ghostbar promises an unforgettable experience for guests old & new alike.

Durango Station

Following the sale of the Palms, Station Casinos redirected resources towards the development of Durango Station, a new resort & casino in the southwest valley. This ambitious project, which has been in the pipeline for over a decade, found its home near Durango & the 215 freeway. The property offers a harmonious blend of indoor & outdoor spaces, featuring a 211-room hotel tower, a lavish pool area, a dynamic casino floor, captivating water features, & a selection of at least four prominent restaurants. Among these culinary offerings, guests can indulge in the diverse delights of the Eat Your Heart Out food hall & savor the modern Mexican cuisine of Mijo, which will also boast a clandestine cocktail lounge known as Wax Rabbit. With its array of amenities, Durango Station promises to be a captivating destination for visitors seeking luxury & entertainment in Las Vegas.

Boring Co. People Mover

The Boring Company, spearheaded by Elon Musk, has revealed an innovative “people mover” system beneath the newly expanded Las Vegas Convention Center. This cutting-edge project employs autonomous electric Tesla vehicles to shuttle attendees underground, drastically reducing what would typically be a 15-minute walk to just over a minute. These vehicles, equipped to accommodate both standing & seated passengers, zip through a twin tunnel loop system at speeds ranging from 35 to 40 miles per hour. Beyond the Convention Center, the transportation network extends to Resorts World, with plans for at least 50 stations spanning the Strip & Downtown, including an extension to the airport. The upcoming inauguration of the next two stations, serving the Westgate & Encore, is slated for early 2024, marking another milestone in the evolution of urban transit in Las Vegas.
