COMING ATTRACTIONS: YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS
LAS VEGAS STADIUM
The Oakland Raiders of the NFL are relocating to Las Vegas for the 2020 season and will play in the $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat domed Stadium. According to Raiders owner Mark Davis, no expense will be spared in building an iconic stadium that will stand the test of time.
Near the airport and adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip, the location of Las Vegas Stadium is optimal for both local and visiting guests. State-of-the-art retractable doors and a glass-domed roof offer the best of both worlds – an outdoor feel with a natural -grass playing field and a comfortable climate – not to mention a stunning view. A sleek and seamless concept brings it all together, featuring a perfect design for crowd flow during game day and large-scale Las Vegas events.
Madison Square Garden is partnering with Las Vegas Sands to build an 18,000-seat performance venue to be known as the MSG Sphere Las Vegas. Madison Square Garden’s planned MSG Sphere will be a 360-feet-tall and 500-feet-wide concert venue slated to be built by late 2020 on 63 acres east of the Sands Expo Center on a lot currently used for outdoor storage. The venue’s exterior will be fully programmable, housing a 170,000-square-foot spherical digital indoor display plane. Madison Square Garden will break ground on MSG Sphere later this year.
The Linq Promenade in 2019 will welcome a Southeast Asian-themed immersive entertainment hub. It combines Asian street food, cashless retail, and live music. Taking its cues from Hollywood, the 100,000-square-foot multistory attraction will use film and holographic special effects to recreate the streets and temples of Bangkok and Singapore. The $100 million project is the brain child of Jane’s Addiction front man and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell (the inspiration for our Couture Event Fabapalooza). Farrell has brought on visual effects pioneer Ed Jones, who worked on Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and E.T. to help develop the multi-sensory experience, which is part film and part theme park that’s family-friendly by day and adults-only at night.
The newest hotel in Las Vegas is Park MGM. What was formerly the Monte Carlo is transforming into a luxurious new resort. This revamp offers a high-class experience right across from The Park and in between T-Mobile Arena and Park Theater. Park MGM’s design is inspired by urban parks and gardens and combines timeless European style with an intimate, modern sensibility. The new lobby’s magnificent design and the elegance of restaurants like Primrose are only two of the most alluring details.
WYNN PARADISE PARK
Wynn Resorts has already started work on the Paradise Park project to replace the 130-acre golf course east of the existing hotel towers – a lagoon roughly three times the size of Bellagio’s lake surrounded by a boardwalk and beach plus a hotel tower that could have 1,500 to 2,000 rooms. Wynn and Encore have 4,750 hotel rooms, and the new projects could boost the company’s holdings to 8,000 rooms.
Wynn Resorts projects that Paradise Park and Wynn West to be finished in about three years, which matches the expected timeframe for Resorts World, the Convention Center expansion and the stadium close to the south end of the Strip for the NFL’s Oakland Raiders.
