Madison Square Garden Co. has chosen a general contractor for its MSG Sphere at the Venetian on the Strip.
MSG said it has partnered with design, engineering and construction firm AECOM to build the 17,500-seat arena, which will sit on an 18-acre site on Sands Avenue between Manhattan Street and Koval Lane.
AECOM was the general contractor for Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena and built Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, which hosted the Super Bowl in February.
“We’re excited to deliver a next-generation venue in the heart of the world’s most celebrated entertainment capital,” said Michael Burke, AECOM’s CEO, in a statement. “We’re thrilled about this opportunity to help transform an ambitious vision into a destination venue unlike any that exists today.”
