Many have seen the progress in construction of the $4.3 billion Resorts World Las Vegas when driving throughout town.
The property on the north Las Vegas Strip is over 88 acres, after all, and visible from various parts of the city.
That resort now has an opening day: June 24.
“We are filled with gratitude and excitement as we approach our opening this June and hope to play a role in Las Vegas’ rebound after what has been an incredibly challenging year for the destination and greater hospitality industry,” said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas in a news release.
It is the first ground-up resort development on the Strip in 10 years.
Resorts World features 3,500 room and suites through a partnership with Hilton, including the largest Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in the world, one of the first LXR Hotels & Resorts locations in the U.S., and a marquee Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel.
The property will also include a 5,000-seat entertainment venue, which is a joint development between Resorts World and AEG Presents. It also has 117,000 square feet of gaming, 250,000 square feet of meeting space — with a tunnel connecting to the Las Vegas Convention Center — and the Zouk Nightclub and AYU Dayclub.
And, of course, there’s the video board, a 100,000-square-foot West Tower LED screen that is believed to be the largest LED building displays in the United States, officials said.
“After years of planning and constructing this monumental property with some of the most innovative partners in the industry, Resorts World Las Vegas will redefine the hospitality standard in Las Vegas with unmatched dining and entertainment, more variety of hotel accommodations than anywhere else on the Strip, and the city’s most progressive technology,” Sibella said.
