Nostalgically referred to as “another chapter in Las Vegas’ history that’s being closed beneath a cloud of dust” by Vegas Review Journal, the Desert Inn stands now through the side of other famous & former Vegas resorts such as the Dunes, Hacienda or Sands.
Titled “Encore at Wynn Vegas”, the brand new 61 story hotel tower will feature a minimum of 1,500 suites and full-resort amenities like a casino area, restaurants, a health spa, pools, retail and traditional space.
“Encore at Wynn Vegas” is anticipated to spread out in 2007.
Steady plans for that Wynn Vegas grand opening
With that time, there are more major occasions to tick off on Steve Wynn’s agenda (the person behind the entire project). The initial plans for that 28th April 2005-grand opening of “Wynn Vegas” remain unchanged.
The date is really a double anniversary for Steve Wynn – the launch of the mega-resort putting on his name and the wife’s birthday. Inside a couple of times of approximation, by the same time frame in 1950, Desert Inn itself was opening its doorways.
“Wynn Vegas” may be the classic concept of a contemporary resort & casino, only bigger, more lavish and certainly, more costly.
Steve Wynn’s portfolio like a Vegas hotelier includes impressive names like Bellagio, Mirage, MGM Grand and Treasure Island. Wynn’s management is known for generating high cash-flows within the first many years of activity of his formerly developed projects in Vegas.
Initially, an investment at Wynn Vegas was announced to increase as much as $2,6 billion. Using the new tower expansion, the sum altered to $3,5 billion by estimation, probably the most costly Strip resort, to the moment.
