New York developer Steve Witkoff has revealed his plan to reopen and rebrand the dormant Fontainebleau project on the Las Vegas Strip, just five months after purchasing the shuttered property.
Witkoff’s Monday announcement said he has joined with hotel giant Marriott International in the casino/resort to be rechristened The Drew Las Vegas, with a scheduled opening in late 2020.
"The Drew Las Vegas will become a landmark property for Marriott International," said Tony Capuano, EVP and Global Chief Development Officer, Marriott International. "The resort will give our more than 100 million loyalty members the chance to enjoy our brand of hospitality in one of the most exciting and popular cities in the world, whether the visit is for a convention or a leisure trip."
