The skeleton crew of workers at the site of the MSG Sphere at The Venetian has removed scaffolding and shoring from three levels of the construction site, a new video of the project shows.
Construction on the $1.66 billion Sphere was stopped in mid-April as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. A small crew appeared on the site to manage the shutdown.
A spokeswoman for MSG Entertainment said Monday that there is no update on the resumption of construction.
In March, MSG Entertainment crews building the 17,000-seat performance venue reached Level 6 of the project at 108 feet above the ground — the 516-foot “equator.”
The equator will be the widest point of the first-of-its-kind structure.
The pause in construction will result in the project being completed later than the 2021 projected completion.
