Dream construction starts in Las Vegas

by | 29 Jul 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

A new 531-room Dream Hotel and casino is taking shape in Las Vegas with the start of the 20-storey luxury hotel tower’s construction.

Developed by Shopoff Realty Investments and Contour, in partnership with Dream Hotel Group, Dream Las Vegas is intended to drive the ongoing revitalisation of Sin City’s southern section of Strip.

Experiential lifestyle

The lifestyle hotel and casino pairs global architecture firm DLR Group with interior design by AvroKo, Rockwell Group and DLR Interiors, while McCarthy Building Companies is the design-builder contractor for the project. The building is expected to open with seven experiential dining and nightlife venues, 12,000 sq ft of meeting and event space and a 20,000 sq ft casino, in late 2024. 

Original dining and nightlife options will include a third-level resort pool and day club, two bar and lounge concepts on the gaming floor, a lobby bar, craft coffee café and gelateria on the street level, as well as a sporting club, boutique nightclub, signature restaurant and 24-hour diner on the third floor.

Meeting and event facilities will include a 5,000-square-foot ballroom and 90-seat live entertainment theatre, plus guests can utilise a fitness centre by TechnoGym.

Tower type

The $550 million development will feature a diverse mix of dramatic venues distributed vertically throughout the composition roof decks and terraces of the hotel design.

The undulating contemporary design will feature a lustrous glass and metal façade, boasting stylistic details such as radiused corners, spacious double-height terraces, oversized windows and a unique aerodynamic character influenced by its context. When complete, Dream Las Vegas and its distinctly iconic architecture will introduce a refreshing, new lifestyle-focused hotel experience.

Kick-off celebration

The recent groundbreaking ceremony featured governor of Nevada Steve Sisolak, Clark County Board of Commissioners chairman James B. Gibson and lieutenant governor Lisa Cano Burkhead as speakers, along with Shopoff Realty Investments’ president and CEO William Shopoff, founder and CEO of Contour David Daneshforooz, Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein and COO Michael Lindenbaum, plus McCarthy Building Companies’ senior vice president Ross Edwards.

Shopoff commented: “This project represents a new type of Vegas hotel experience, offering tourists and locals alike a unique boutique hotel option on the Las Vegas Strip. We are thrilled to break ground on Dream Las Vegas and watch as it energises the southern end of the Strip, while providing countless jobs and revenue for local government.”

Contour’s Daneshforooz added: “As a native to Las Vegas, I am thrilled to work alongside a great team and partners to reach this milestone in the development of Dream Las Vegas. Dream Hotel Group will bring new life to this end of the Strip with its curated food, beverage and entertainment offerings.”

Dreaming ahead

Dream CEO Jay Stein said: “All of us at Dream are proud to play a role in creating what will be one of the most spectacular new additions to Las Vegas. Together with innovative developers Shopoff and Contour, it is our goal to create an experience-driven property that surpasses expectations, blending forward-thinking design, progressive programming and world-class hospitality with unmatched dining and nightlife.

“We are not just building another hotel, we are building an experience, and one that we hope will contribute substantially to the future of Las Vegas. Following the successful launch of Dream Hollywood, California in 2017, I have every confidence that Dream Las Vegas will be our newest star of the west coast and a critical addition to our growing portfolio.”

With 15 hotels open today and 25 new locations in various stages of development worldwide, Dream Hotel Group is rapidly growing its independent lifestyle hotel portfolio. Major upcoming developments include: Dream Doha arriving at the end of this year, Dream Delhi, scheduled for Q4 2023 and Dream Hotel Bricktown, opening in Oklahoma City in Q1 2024.
