THE DREW — The 3,780-room resort on the north end of the Strip now plans to open in the second quarter of 2022. Diller Scofidio + Renfro just signed on as the design architect for the project, taking its inspiration from “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.” So far, the resort has not released any restaurants opening in the former unfinished Fontainebleau. Originally, The Drew planned to open in 2021. [EaterWire]

The resort, which takes over the former Las Vegas Club site, plans to open in 2020. [EaterWire]
