The site was assembled by buying the Desert Inn Hotel and golf course for most of the land. The remainder was acquired by purchasing private residences that were generally located along Paradise Avenue. While some owners sold early on, others held out. This resulted in numerous legal actions between the various parties.[1] In the end, the site acquired totaled 215 acres (870,000 m²).

Wynn Las Vegas LLC contracted with Marnell Corrao Associates on June 4, 2002 to design and build the resort. The original name for the project was "Le Rêve" but was changed to "Wynn Las Vegas" well before the project was complete. The original name lives on in the stage production. Built at a cost of US$2.7 billion, it was the largest privately-funded construction project in the nation.

Inspiration and vision

Wynn purchased the Desert Inn hotel and casino to obtain property for his future dreams. The Desert Inn was imploded to make room for his new hotel project.

Wynn has stated that the major shift with this new resort is the concept of designing from the "inside out." In contrast to his previous hotels Bellagio, The Mirage, and Treasure Island, there is no Las Vegas Strip attraction to draw in passers-by. Instead, visitors must venture inside to see what the hotel is all about. Wynn has said that "there is no franchise in a casual observer, there is a franchise in a guest."[3] Bellagio is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Lake of Dreams

In a departure from the trend established when The Mirage opened of providing free sidewalk attractions to draw in customers, Wynn Las Vegas is constructed so that visitors must enter the building to view the free attractions. The main attraction is a large, curtain waterfall behind a mountain that faces the strip. The waterfall falls into a 3 acre (12,000 m²) lake. Both the waterfall and lake have images displayed on them to produce a show called "Lake of Dreams". This show starts on the hour beginning in the afternoon. When the show is inactive, the waterfall creates an animated color sequence on the screen.

The first production show to open was Le Rêve. Le Rêve is set in a 1 million gallon water-oriented theatre where no seat is more than 40 feet (12 m) from the stage.

Avenue Q

Avenue Q, a puppet and people musical which enjoyed considerable success on Broadway was the second production show to open at Wynn.

One of the main reasons why Avenue Q closed was, according to Steve Wynn, real estate land and money. Wynn contracted with Spamalot to perform at Wynn Las Vegas. However, in order to house Spamalot, a third theater needs to be built. The only room left for the theater was on the skirts of the golf course or in the middle of the convention spaces for the planned Encore expansion tower. Since Wynn did not want to invade the golf course or cut between the convention spaces of Encore and Wynn Las Vegas, he was forced to terminate the Avenue Q contract. Wynn was quoted as saying "Avenue Q was making money, but not enough money."[5] Avenue Q is a Tony award-winning musical that was conceived by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, who wrote the music and lyrics. ...

Nightclubs

La Bête

This nightclub catered to high-rollers and tourists and included an attractive entrance with dog feet. The club was unsuccessful with this focus, and Wynn closed La Bête. When the venue reopened, it was called Tryst; it boasts a large terrace with views of a private lake and towering waterfall. See below.

Lure

Lure is the second nightclub and ultra-lounge of Wynn Las Vegas. It is one of two nightclubs that opened with the resort. Its counterpart club was the failed La Bête, which has since been reopened as Tryst. Lure's convenient location just off the casino floor puts it in an increasingly popular class of establishments known "casino clubs". These clubs offer relaxing and intimate environments where patrons looking to escape the excitement of the casino can socialize and drink. Image File history File linksMetadata Lure. ...


Lure was closed in early July of 2007, in order to be replaced with a more "hip" lounge. The project is working under the codename, "Vanity - The Original Sin", by nightclub creator, James Sinclair. This story was originally reported by the Las Vegas SUN at the end of 2006. Plans were delayed for some reason and Vanity is scheduled to be opened in Lure's location six weeks from the day it closed.[citation needed]The new name for Lure is "Blush".

Wynn Golf and Country Club

The Wynn Golf and Country Club is the only golf course on the Las Vegas Strip. It was designed by Steve Wynn and Tom Fazio, who previously worked together on the Shadow Creek Golf Club, in neighboring North Las Vegas.

These rooms and suites have a private driveway and entrance, a separate check-in area and elevators, and a private pool area. In 2006, The Tower Suites at Wynn Las Vegas was evaluated independently from the rest of the property by Mobil Travel Guide for their 2007 ratings. It was awarded the first and only Mobil Five-Star rating ever awarded to a hotel in Las Vegas.[7] Wynn Las Vegas itself received the Mobil Four-Star rating for 2007.


Villa Suites

In addition to the Fairway Villas, Wynn Las Vegas contains six Villa Suites which are not available to the general public. One of these villas is the private residence of Steve Wynn.[8] Three of these villas are along the West side of the hotel, between the tower and the Lake of Dreams. The other three are located along the Western edge of the pool area, South of the tower. In February of 2007, Wynn requested approval to build four additional villa suites on the South edge of the property.

Future development

Encore

Steve Wynn with the Encore logo

On 28 April 2006, the resort celebrated its one year anniversary by breaking ground on a second hotel tower.[9] Called Encore, the tower will be a $2.1 billion, 2,034 room hotel project adjacent to the existing resort and on the remaining frontage of Las Vegas Blvd. Originally envisioned as an expansion of Wynn Las Vegas, Encore will be a full-scale resort and is set to open in the first quarter of 2009. The hotel will feature a 74,000 sq.ft. casino, several restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. As of March of 2007, construction was on the 18th floor, and will be about 60 floors when complete, making it approximately the same height as the Wynn. In August 2007, Steve Wynn stated that the casino that will be part of Encore will feature a similar design to that of Wynn Macau's casino. [10] Image File history File linksMetadata Encore_wynn. ...

Wynn Golf Course redevelopment

The land that the Wynn Golf Course currently sits on is becoming increasingly valuable in the wake of rising land prices on the Las Vegas Strip. Wynn has said he will eventually replace the golf course with several all-suite hotels surrounding a lake. A tree lined 'Wynn Boulevard' will snake through the complex and feature pedestrian by-ways [11]. The first of the hotels is likely to be on the side facing the Las Vegas Convention Center but construction won't begin until 2009 [12] at the earliest. Wynn has said recently that he does not want the project to be as dense as MGM's Project CityCenter. CityCenter is a 76-acre mixed use development project proposed (currently under construction) by MGM Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. ...


Additional Villas

In February of 2007, Wynn Las Vegas submitted a request for approval to construct four additional villas on the South side of the property, which would bring the total number of villas to ten. The description of the new villas closely matches that of the six existing villas on the property.[13]

Wynn Las Vegas LLC contracted with Marnell Corrao Associates on June 4, 2002 to design and build the resort.
Wynn Las Vegas, designed by Jon Jerde, opened on April 28, 2005, Wynn's wife's birthday, the 55th Anniversary of the opening of the original Desert Inn, and the day Steve Wynn purchased the site five years ago.
