MSG Sphere Construction on Schedule for 2023
Construction of the MSG Sphere Entertainment Venue just of the Strip is expected to complete the project’s domed roof structure later this fall as scheduled.
Completing the skeletal dome of the MSG Sphere will result in pouring about 13,000 tons of concrete to fill out the roof. This dome project demonstrates the massive magnitude of this project estimated to cost $1.5 billion when completed.
Over the next year the roof concrete and the venue’s exterior façade will be completed, as well as a pedestrian bridge. An exosphere will enclose the venue and eventually be covered with 580,000 square feet of programmable LED lighting.
Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp., which operates Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall in New York, is collaborating with Las Vegas Sands Corp. on the project expected to be completed in 2023.
The future 17,500-seat venue sits just east of The Venetian, Palazzo and The Venetian Expo. The project will eventually house screens that span the size of three football fields.
The MSG Sphere will be 366 feet tall, and the building will be 516 feet wide at its widest point. By comparison, the nearby Palazzo tower is 642 feet high, The Venetian is 475 feet tall and the High Roller observation wheel is 550 feet tall. The MSG Sphere will become a major Las Vegas Entertainment Venue upon completion.
