The Largest Resort on the Las Vegas Strip that NO ONE can Visit

Hey everyone! In this video, we are going to be talking about the largest resort on the Las Vegas Strip that NO ONE can visit, The Fontainebleau. Otherwise known as The Drew, this 63 story casino resort is an Urban Explorers paradise! This Abandoned Place was left to rot after the 2007-2008 subprime mortgage crisis. In this video, we are going to be discussing what happened to this immaculate resort, and why it failed to open after being 70 percent complete.

Very few Urbex Enthusiasts have been able to get video of the inside of this resort. Unfortunately, I am not one of the few who have been able to see the inside of the resort. Fortunately for you though, in this video I have put videos of people exploring this abandoned place! This Abandoned Resort is absolutely amazing on the inside, so make sure to watch THIS video to see what the inside looks like!

If you enjoy this type of videos be sure to let me know down in the comments below! Also, if you have any suggestions for future videos let me know! I will most likely end up making a video on it! If you enjoy Urbex/Urban Exploration Videos, or videos of people exploring abandoned places, be sure to subscribe down below! I film both exploring abandoned places videos, as well as these Urban Exploration Documentary Videos!

You shouldn't make videos if your command of English is this poor. WTF does "exorborant" mean? Are high school words really that hard for this guy? The word is "exorbitant", as anyone with a 9th grade education would know

I got to admit, "abandoned.." you don't breathe too much when narrating this video. Are you on a time crunch? take your time telling us the story. You are speeding it up. why?

It could have been worst. What if Fontainebleu had hired Trump to manage their operations? BY THE WAY, [seriously, honest ] if you do research, you will find out that the Mandalay Resort Group was very much involved with Paul Manafort of Trumps' former Cabinet and administration. NOT LYING. Don't know what that means but there was some history of shady dealings. So if you have HEARD THE NAME Mandalay Resort groups, keep in mind, that for a small amount of time, Manafort was involved with them in projects overseas.

Somebody needs to tear down Circus Circus and the crappy mini malls around it. Oh, and buy the run down neighborhood around the stratosphere and build a nice park instead.

So having lived in las vegas for decades, and just outside in the burbs from k-12 I have some insight to vegas that your video either dont have time to explain or you are unaware of. Maybe I can flesh it out some.
1. The Exec they hired, as big as Vegas is, there are areas that are still driven by "juice", that is to say power brokers that go into back rooms and ease things through, either by "greasing the wheels" with some cash/bribes or by simply their rep, one good ol' boy to another, that exec is one of the guys that could do both. He wasn't actually going to cut the building material costs, he was just able to get inspections faster, less critical eyed, he was going to the get unions to go along etc. He was going to "juice" it through. The fact that he had a gaming board approval in his history is no small asset, he had been thoroughly vetted previously and barring him doing something totally agregious in the gaming boards eye he was golden. If the Turnberry had a unknown person on the project he/she would have to be vetted by a convoluted and highly shadowy and secretive process that had no guaranteed success, to put a multi-billion resort at the mercy of that? it would be malfeasance. His departure signaled all the rats to jump ship, ship's is going down get off!
2.Turnberry previously had never been in the gaming business, they were real estate developers, they specialized in building high rise, densely packed housing, something not much provided in Vegas previously, Vegas is a city that had lots of room to spread and not to build up, everyone wanted their picket fence and lawn, but as commutes got longer and longer and folks who wanted not to clip their lawn got in town turnberry and others got in the biz.
3.Turnberry did like many other companies do, they jumped on the bandwagon, never truly taking into account what others are doing in the same biz. In the early 2ks, paid researchers did a study that said the younger, upper-middle class millennial professionals wanted condo high rise luxury type apartments that they could buy/sell as their careers changed or got transferred for advancement in their jobs. Several developers read the same research and they all thought it was the new gold rush and had to get there first, throwing caution to the wind...they all over saturated the market just as the real estate wave was cresting. Millennials don't live in luxury condos, they live in mom and dads basement trying to pay off student loans accumulated behind worthless degrees. Now the towers run 1/2 occupancy and have to try and cater to old vacationers and time shares.
4. 23 lvl garage. The corner where all that mess is, is semi unique. The strip is a vast ribbon of road with real expensive frontage. Crossing the strip has irregular crossroads. Right in that spot it's blocks and blocks before there is another major crossroad. Behind that property is an outlet for a cross town arterial road that has no other strip exit/entrance as well. They recognized a potential windfall they could capitalize on, be the provider for parking in that end of the strip were all the traffic funnels through. They could thus garner all the foot traffic and park and tour traffic. They would get people to stay on their side of the strip and patronize their providings and not a competitor. With the exception of pissing off the residents of their own tower it actually makes sense.
5. Gaming revenue only going to be a 1/3ed steam puzzles you. Actually by current vegas that's quite high expectation. Did you know that for resort type gaming (thats 95% of the strip type gaming) the primary revenue stream isn't gambling? It's retail shopping and amenities. In a bygone era people would go to vegas, hit a show, maybe a meal or two, stay in a room but spend their few day stay mostly feverishly gambling to the wee hours, swilling booze then groaning make their way back home to work for a couple months to recoup what they had lost at the gaming tables. These days people take a week or more or at least a 3 day weekend and luxuriate. They hit the spa, shop in the shops, hit the pool, take in a show, yes hit the buffet but also hit the upscale eatery as well. They might, if they have time enough, take a resort sponsored excursion (especially if you are a spouse of a conventioneer). Yes, you would probably gamble at some point, but all those other activities you are plunking down some change as well. Given that, the resort wants to be the sole provider of those distractions for you, thus they build the shops, the spa, the pool and all the fine dining within the confines of their property, given that, is #4 any shock? They want you to stay were they can skin the cat again and again not across the road.

IMO: The Drew...dumb name, get why it is called that, but the uphill education on that is a not needed expense, go back and focus group the name. Drew=The mythical creature that is the logo for Marriot hotel, that dragon looking thing isn't a dragon but a..Drew, sort of a Cockatrix type creature. Everyone knows what a dragon is, even a sphinx, a Drew? Why bother? Concur on your opinion on the convention connection, it's crucial to them. That's some big IF their though, going to take a lot of grease, lot of juice or lot of public push, whomever they name as the project lead will say volumes in that regard. Remember they are trying to slice off some of Venetian and Wynn action there, Venetian has that whole Sands expo center thing there as well as the monorail stop behind Harrah's. Adelson (Venetian owner) has been known to be a real SOB and willing to toss $$$ to the winds to get something he thinks he wants, he could gum up the works on a whim, he has before. If the monorail ever crossed Sahara and actually went downtown as they keep trail ballooning, that would be a huge asset for the Drew as well, they would need a station on one side or the other and Drew could capitalize on either side. That garage....I've covered that as well as the cross streetage. They are doing what MGM did years ago, the front half of the MGM was actually another hotel that had seen a total upgrade under title 5 and 11, they got it for $.10 on the $1 under foreclosure and only needed to connect new towers to existing and change logo-ed items and decor. A multi billion project nearly complete for 1/2 cost? If they can get the politics straightened out it's a steal. GL Drew!....but really..change the name.

So you literally showed about 5 seconds of the actual abandoned interior and then 80% just seemed to be constant scrolling video grab from the LV journal with huge ads all over the show. No thanks.

Also...far out this is almost a direct rip-off of Bright Sun Films. I could’ve looked past the almost exact tone and use of “honestly” and “anyway” that Jake does (talking 100 miles a minute did distinguish you a bit) but damn, you started straight off the bat with “what’s up guys!” Make it your own, dude. The potential is there.

They move underground then disguise the parking garage as the hotel. This would save on air since a subterranean hotel would stay cooler in the hot summer months and retain heat during the winter. Another benefit that the condominiums could be sold to doomsday folk as survival shelters. You could hide a lot underground giving a higher incentive. The poor residential owners would be jumping with so much excitement they would gamble their homes away allowing even more land purchase possibilities

Was sent there as a cement laborer from Michigan to work on this project for four years...and honestly I wish I never left.. it's a crazy building though and so much was left out. There's a underground built for a mall and so many other things too. I literally got lost every night . That's how big it is... Great memories though. Was like working in the clouds and caught the sunset every day cause we poured concrete all night ,everyday..

Icahn buys the property for $150,000,000....does nothing to it, a few years later he sells it for $600,00,000.....not a bad ROI w/no infrastructure costs.
