If you drive north on the Las Vegas Strip, you will pass some of the
most recognizable buildings in the world: The MGM Grand, Caesars Palace,
Venetian, Palazzo, and Stratosphere hotels. The common connection
between these amazing properties is that they were all constructed by
Taylor International Corp.
Taylor’s name has been intertwined with that of Southern Nevada for more
than half a century. Morry Mason acquired the company in 1940 while
acting as the Architectural Engineer for Taylor Construction. Morry
began by building some of Miami’s legendary hotels, including the
Fontainebleau, Eden Roc, Savoy, Raleigh and Delano. Morry worked with
Morris Lapidus in establishing the foundation for the Art Deco design
for which South Miami Beach became famous. In 1954, Morry came to Las
Vegas to build the Riviera Hotel. Ten years later, he moved Taylor
International to Las Vegas and it has been the permanent home of Taylor
International and the Mason family ever since.
Stuart Mason (Morry’s son) followed and expanded upon Morry’s tradition.
Over a span of 25 years, Stuart built four of the largest and most
innovative hotels in the world. Through Taylor International, Stuart
constructed the original Caesars Palace, The International (now the
LVH), all three of the MGM Grand Hotels and the Venetian/Palazzo Casino
Resort. Stuart achieved the unequaled status of having built the largest
hotel in the world not once, but four times.
Today, Taylor International is headed by brothers Jim and Bill Mason.
Together they are furthering the company’s legacy, which has always been
grounded in core values like loyalty, respect, professionalism,
integrity and quality workmanship.

office, medical/dental facility, restaurant, hotel/casino or the next
