MacauTripping got a great tip to some renderings done for Wynn Design and Development by Mike Hong and Associates. Along with renderings for Encore in Macau (SW Steakhouse?), there's also concept work for unbuilt resorts in Singapore and Monaco.

Enjoy them while you can - they may be pulled down at some point.

also, check out the Wynn Residential Villas under the 'residential' section of the architects webpage

Those are an impressive find indeed. Anybody know anything about Monaco? Old plan and idea, or is that something possibly in the works?

What is the ET Resort? From the renderings, it looks like it is east of the Strip, south of the Trop, bordering McCarran.

If I recall correctly, the Monaco idea is an older one, in the 2004-2005 timeframe around the time they announced the marketing partnership with the casinos there. Like Singapore, these were dropped to focus on Vegas and Macau.

The marketing partnership still exists.

Might those Wynn residential villas be what's in store for the Wynn golf course? I know condominiums aren't really a particularly great idea these days, but might they have been considered at some point?

Yes, I'd place a wager on that for sure. I'm guessing they were originally dreamed up for that space.

I've checked property records and aerial photos, and the ET project is all but certainly the one that Howard Bulloch was trying to put together years ago (it was pitched to Richard Branson, among others). It would sit directly across from Mandalay Bay at the SE corner of Hacienda and LV Blvd. If you look closely at some of the renderings, you can see that Marriott was penciled in as a participant. Bulloch is shopping the land now, so I think can file this one in the "Dreams" category, right alongside Xanadu.

I'm curious about the ET as well... the layout of the whole thing is in the shape and design of "paisley".

The word that came to my mind was "serpentine." The Wynn Singapore page looks, to a large degree, like a placeholder for a more complete set of renderings that never arrived (note the one elevation that is repeated several times in succession).

Yes, DeRuyter Butler told me in 2005 that the Singapore thing never got that far past the concept phase - basically what you see there.
