The Photo & Video History of Steve Wynn


ENCORE LAS VEGAS NEWS & THE GRAND OPENING

The ground-breaking for Steve Wynn's newest Las Vegas hotel, the Wynn Encore, was held on April 28th, 2006.

Named the 'Encore' by Elaine Wynn, this hotel will once again prove that Steve Wynn has an amazing knack for
building the best hotels of our time. The Encore will again set a high standard in Las Vegas by providing
advanced hotel and electronic technologies far above the state-of-the-art.

This two billion dollar, up-scale boutique hotel, will offer the same intimacy as the well-designed 2005
Wynn Las Vegas - while raising the sophistication up a notch or two. Both hotels are 61 stories tall, with
floor-to-ceiling windows showing beautiful views of the city. With over 30 years of hotel and design experience,
Steve Wynn has definitely figured out how to provide the best hotel experience on earth for his loyal patrons.

Constructed on the 20-acre site of the 1950 Desert Inn the new hotel has over 2,000 superbly decorated suites
measuring over 1,000 square feet, with seperate bedrooms and living room and huge 225 square foot bathrooms.
The cost of construction for each room was $700,000 apiece....so guests will certainly get a lot for their money.
Where else in the world can you sleep in a 3/4 million dollar luxury room where your every need has been
considered and fulfilled far in advance of your arrival?! Only at a Wynn dreamt hotel.

Encore is a full-scale resort housing an indoor lake, five deluxe restaurants, seven lounges and a nightclub expected
to far exceed Caesars' (Pure) and the Palms' (Rain and Playboy) clubs' current status as the 'Best Nightclub in Vegas'.

The promenade features 12 deluxe retail shops with high quality merchandise unequaled anywhere else in Las Vegas.
The covered roof-top pool, along with a luxurious gound level pool and spa will delight hotel guests immensely.

After the July 13th closing of the 'Spamalot Theater', work began on the creation of the 'Encore Theater' and the
all-new Danny Gans Show. Mr. Gans, who first showcased at the Rio Hotel, was presented with an eight year
contract from Steve Wynn in 2000 to headline at Wynn's former Mirage Hotel. Voted the 'Las Vegas Entertainer
of the Year' Danny is eagerly awaiting his return to the Wynn Family's open arms and their enthusiastic audiences.

Recent plans for upcoming expansions at the Wynn Resort will allow the complex to meet or exceed developments
at the soon to open MGM City Center. With 240 acres of prime real-estate behind Wynn's two hotels the
conversion of the old Desert Inn Golf Course is slated for a decade of new developments. First up will be the
creation of a 20 acre lake twice the size of Lake Bellagio with three more, all-new hotels soon to follow.

The casino, hotel, restaurants and shops opened on December 22nd, 2008. Let the newest Wynn Show begin.

March 2008 view (from the 'Wynn-to-Fashion-Show' bridge) shows the former Frontier Hotel property, which is

Trump's International Tower opened earlier this year, 400 yeards from the Encore.

Stratosphere
Photography by Erik Wunstell © April 2006

The Stratosphere seen from the Encore location. The Encore property is seen in the area at bottom. The Stardust
sign was once the tallest structure on the Strip. It has since been removed to make way for Eshelon Place.
The entire area around and north of the Encore Hotel is making the North Strip the extremely modern.

and Venetian's Pallazo rising beyond Steve Wynn's 1993 Treasure Island Hotel.

Metropolis Condo
Photography by Erik Wunstell © April 2006

The Metropolis Condo & LV Convention Center (left) - Northeast of the Encore. The Metropolis was one of the first
high-rise condomiums built after the success of Steve Wynn's Turnberry Towers condo project. Wynn's idea paved
the way for the 'high-rise condo-phase' in Las Vegas and his idea was later followed by MGM's Signature Tower, the
Panorama Tower and numerous other towers that recently opened or are now nearing completion...including the
high-rise condominiums being built on the Strip at Planet Hollywood and the City Center.

Wynn's property, behind his two new Strip hotels, is just across the road from the Metropolis. The area now
occupied by the golf course is about to be converted into a mini-city comparable to MGM's City Center and
Harrah's upcoming expansion project. Leave it to Steve Wynn to have chosen the best location of the bunch.

Wynn from satellite

This 2006 Google Earth satellite photo shows the entire Wynn Resort property. The location of the Encore
is the asphalt lot seen just above the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel. The 200 acre golf course property is seen to the
right. The Wynn property, bounded by Las Vegas Blvd (west) Paradise Road (east) Desert Inn Road (north) and
Sands Road (south) is approachable from many angles and benefits from the lack of traffic grid-lock.
The Convention Center parking lot is seen at the top-right portion of this photo.

Encore satellite
Image Courtesy of Google Earth

2007 Google Earth view of Wynn Las Vegas showing the Encore Hotel rising on the far mid-left. Wynn's use of
an arc shaped building is a welcome departure from the more common 'Y' shaped design more commonly used at
hotels like the Palazzo (seen at mid-right). Wynn has designed his hotel to make guests rooms more accessible
without the long walks and hallways of hotels like the MGM. At Wynn hotels, all such inconveniences have
been well considered and removed, elevators are placed where the should be, etc. The Encore is the best
designed hotel in Vegas and the best the Wynn's have ever built. After the success of the Mirage and Bellagio
that says a lot. The quality of construction, amenities and service at Wynn's Encore will speak for themselves.
