The Drew is an unfinished hotel building in Las Vegas . It is located right on the Las Vegas Strip .

Construction on the building began in 2007 under the name Fontainebleau Resort Hotel , and at the end of 2009 it reached its final height of 224 meters. However, the construction work was stopped for the time being due to financial difficulties in spring 2010, although a large part of the facade has already been installed. The opening was planned for mid-2010, but this date could not be kept due to the construction backlog, especially with the interior design. With its height of 224 meters, it is the tallest building in the city, but since it is unfinished, this rank is reserved for the Palazzo Hotel for the time being . The number of floors is 63.

In February 2010, Carl Icahn acquired the hotel during a foreclosure auction and stated that there were no plans to start construction again anytime soon. The cost of completing the structure is estimated at $ 1.5 billion.

In October 2010, facilities that were originally intended to be used to furnish the hotel were auctioned. For example, the Plaza Hotel & Casino bought carpets, furniture and mattresses for an extensive renovation.

In November 2015, the building went up for sale for $ 650 million.

In 2017, an investment company finally bought the property for $ 600 million. In early 2018 it was announced that construction would be completed and that it would open under the name The Drew in 2020. The planned opening has now been postponed to 2022.
