LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The former Fontainebleau and Drew project on the Las Vegas Strip has a new projected opening date.

The new JW Marriott Las Vegas Blvd will usher in a new generation of Las Vegas resorts with a fourth-quarter opening in 2023, according to JW Marriott.

The unfinished 63-story hotel has been sitting on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip for years after construction stalled that originally began in 2006.

The resort is also expected to debut Marriott International’s EDITION brand with multiple retail, spa, nightlife, pool, casino and culinary experiences.
