Fontainebleau blooms at last
Las Vegas Review-Journal
Fontainebleau Las Vegas has had a long-anticipated opening — longer than most.
Its story starts in May 2005 when plans were first announced. Since then, the project has been marked by halted construction, multiple sets of owners, economic meltdowns and years of wondering what would happen to the blue-tinted north Strip skyscraper. With its Dec. 13 opening, the towering former symbol of Las Vegas’ real estate boom and bust is now the newest luxury resort in America’s casino capital.
And it only took almost two decades to get there.
