LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Construction of a new hotel and casino on Las Vegas Boulevard is about to begin. The Dream Hotel will be located near the Las Vegas sign.
At a groundbreaking ceremony Friday morning, community leaders like Governor Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson were on hand for opening remarks and to congratulate those working on this project.
Bill Shopoff is the president of Shopoff Realty Investments. He said his company bought the land last year, with project costs of $550 million.
“Covid has never slowed us down. We had to work with the airport authority and with their concerns and concerns, it was great to work with them and Commissioner Gibson has been a star in providing great leadership to help us navigate this process,” explained Shopoff.
With 531 rooms, the new hotel will offer 8 different food and beverage options, a day club, swimming pool and casino.
McCarthy Construction Companies Senior Chairman Ross Edwards said he was excited to bring jobs to the Las Vegas Valley.
“We are adding approximately 12 new construction jobs, plus an additional 2,000 jobs related to the offsite project. It’s going to be awesome for the community and we’re super excited about it. It will be a new landmark in Las Vegas,” Edwards said.
The proposed opening date for the Dream Hotel and Casino is 2024.
