Wynn Resorts has an appointment to see Clark County about a big potential change to Encore.
It seems that they feel the Las Vegas Strip porte-cochere is a bit of a waste of space - they want to replace it with a pool and nightclub complex, right up next to Las Vegas Blvd.
Here's the filing with the county: PDF Filing w/ Clark County
Sounds like they would create a new entrance to this addition from Las Vegas Blvd. as well as create a pedestrian bridge for people walking in front of the parking garage entrance.
What will happen to the Encore atrium, Switch and high limit areas? Will they have to be modified to accommodate this?
We're working on getting more info from Wynn PR and also other channels.
Thanks to Detroit for giving me the heads up on this filing.
Update: We hear that the project is scheduled for Q2 2010.
