1. Madison Square Garden (MSG) Worth $2.8 billion

An immersive theatre backed up by cutting-edge technology, the Madison Square Garden sphere will play host to a wide variety of events over the course of the year, including residencies, esports, corporate events, and any number of unique attractions.

This 17,500-seat auditorium was originally scheduled to open in 2021, however, construction of the building was halted in April 2020 due to a COVID-19-related disruption in the project's supply chain as a result of the pandemic. Work started up again in the latter part of that year, and the project is expected to be completed by the end of the second half of 2023.

With over 100 meters in height and almost 160 meters in diameter, it is the largest spherical structure on the planet.

2. Amazon HQ2 Worth $2.5 Billion

Despite the fact that construction of the Amazon HQ2 office space at National Landing began in January 2020, the project is on track to be completed by 2023, depending on the pace of construction. In early 2022, the contractor expects to crown out the office buildings at Metropolitan Park, finish the facade installation by the summer of 2022, and then move on to developing the 2-acre landscaped courtyard in the courtyard once the office buildings have been completed.

Aside from the 2.1 million square feet of office space that Amazon will be occupying in two 22-story LEED-certified buildings, the Metropolitan Park campus will also accommodate 50,000 square feet of retail space for small businesses in the surrounding area.

3. Fontainebleau, Las Vegas worth $3.8 Billion

According to a press statement, The Fontainebleau, a 67-story hotel, gambling, conference, and entertainment complex, will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023.

The location, which spans 25 acres which is equal to 9 million square feet near the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip, is next to the Las Vegas Convention Center. The project will comprise 3,700 hotel rooms, 550,000 square feet of conference and meeting space, as well as gaming, eating, retail, and experiences that are centred on health and wellbeing.

4. Las Vegas Formula 1 Grand Prix worth $240 million

The F1 pits and paddock for the Las Vegas Grand Prix will be built on a building site for an astounding $240 million, according to Formula One (F1).

After the inaugural Miami Grand Prix's triumph, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali talked with and shared further information. He went on to call the event a success, and he talked about the next Las Vegas Grand Prix, which will be held for the first time in November 2023.

Drivers will be able to go at up to 212 mph on the 6.12-kilometre course, which has 17 turning curves, a chicane, and three high-speed crossings. The circuit starts in an existing parking lot that will be converted into the pits and paddock area, which will also hold a permanent track. The circuit runs anticlockwise.

5. Renovation of The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts worth $142 Million

One of the most known and biggest museums of the fine world is The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. On April 22, 2023, the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts will reopen in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Studio Gang, along with Polk Stanley Wilcox and SCAPE, designed the Museum's new structural identity to establish it as a regional arts leader.
