Majestic Las Vegas to start construction in May 2020

Majestic Las Vegas, the brainchild of Las Vegas developer Lorenzo Doumani, is set to break ground following the project's approval by the Clark County Commissioners. The $850 million, 620-foot-tall building is scheduled to commence construction in May 2020, and is slated for completion in early 2023.

Drawing inspiration from architect Paul Williams' work, the Majestic Las Vegas’s design is by architect Paul Steelman. The property will have a design that is both futuristic and a throwback to the 1960s.

The non-gaming, 720-room all-suite resort will sit on the six-acre site formerly occupied by the Clarion Hotel, which Doumani imploded in 2015. This location is directly across the site of the new Las Vegas Convention Center opening in 2021, and two blocks from the Las Vegas Strip.

In addition to six standalone restaurants, a landscaped pool area with 50 cabanas, and an area for live entertainment, the Majestic Las Vegas will focus on health and wellness. The four-level, 70,000 square foot fitness, nutrition and med spa facility will serve as a medical wellness destination.

The largest accommodations at Majestic Las Vegas will be the corporate Sky Suites, situated on levels 51 to 60. Offered in 1/4 floor, 1/2 floor, or entire floor options with up to 25,000 square feet of customizable space, the suites will have 16-foot-high ceilings and panoramic views of the Las Vegas skyline.
