Moving toward a second quarter 2022 opening of Drew Las Vegas, global real estate developer Witkoff has announced Diller Scofidio + Renfro as the design architect for the project.
The company has been appointed with an eye toward realising a fresh vision for the next integrated resort on the North Strip’s emerging luxury corridor.
“We believe Drew Las Vegas is set to usher in the next generation of Las Vegas resorts.
“It will be unlike anything on the Strip today – a truly integrated resort that brings together a unique take on Las Vegas and curated set of experiences from around the world,” said Steven Witkoff, chairman of Witkoff.
With an opening date planned in early 2022, Drew Las Vegas has also kicked off its sales efforts to group customers.
The initial response to the 3,780-room resort has been “overwhelmingly positive”, according to the developers, as groups look for new ideas and a fresh perspective.
Charles Renfro, Diller Scofidio + Renfro partner and lead designer of the Drew, added: “The team’s design approach was inspired by the multiple ecologies of Las Vegas itself – the dynamic and rugged beauty of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas’ early adoption of modern architecture, and the city’s enthusiastic embrace of spectacle.
“The Drew will weave these seemingly contradictory conditions into a new quixotic environment.”
