What's Happening in Las Vegas - FontaineBleau

Fontainebleau – NOW OPEN

The developers of Fontainebleau Las Vegas have successfully secured a construction loan worth $3.7 billion to finally complete the long-delayed project. The hotel casino, which will soar 63 stories high, is slated to open its doors to the public in late 2023. Fontainebleau Development and Koch Real Estate Investments worked together to arrange the financing for the highly anticipated resort. It will occupy a massive 25-acre lot and boast an impressive 9 million square feet of space. Once complete, the Fontainebleau will offer approximately 3,644 hotel rooms, and 550,000 square feet of convention and meeting space. Along with a wide range of amenities including gaming facilities, dining options, retail spaces, and health and wellness facilities. It is expected to be one of the largest resorts in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Athletics – COMING SOON

Nevada lawmakers have granted their approval for $380 million in public financing earmarked for the construction of a new stadium to serve as the future home for the Oakland Athletics within the MLB. The currently proposed location for this new stadium is the site currently occupied by the Tropicana Casino. The stadium is being meticulously designed to host a wide range of other events, further enhancing its potential economic impact.

This endeavor raises echoes of the past when we invested in Allegiant Stadium, sparking concerns and skepticism about the expected return on investment. In light of these developments, the decision to make Las Vegas the new home for the Oakland A’s carries not only financial implications but also the promise of revitalizing the local economy and solidifying Las Vegas’ position as a hub for sports and entertainment events.
