Wynn Resorts planning $1.5B expansion for Las Vegas Strip property

Wynn Resorts is considering a 1,000-room expansion at its Strip property centered around a 38-acre lagoon that would host water skiing, paddle boarding and parasailing by day and fireworks displays at night.

The project, tentatively called Wynn Paradise Park, would cost about $1.5 billion to build and open in 2020 if work begins later this year as planned.

Joseph Greff, who wrote the J.P. Morgan investment report on the investment conference, said the new hospitality amenity could capture new customers and nongaming discretionary dollars with the beach activity and water sports activities envisioned on the lake.

He said the project could be reviewed by the Wynn board by the third quarter and, if approved, construction could begin by fall.

Raiders owner Mark Davis to address state panel to discuss proposed stadium, move to Las Vegas

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis will appear before a state committee later this month to discuss relocating the National Football League team to Las Vegas.

The Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee meets April 28 at UNLV to review tourism-related projects for possible state funding. A 65,000-seat stadium in the Strip resort corridor is among the projects under consideration for recommendation to the Nevada Legislature. Davis will be at the meeting to address the stadium plan and the Raiders’ potential move, a source confirmed Tuesday on condition of anonymity.

The infrastructure committee’s recommendations, due this summer, are not binding.

Mayor: ‘Desert gets its oasis’ with Faraday groundbreaking

Executives for electric car company Faraday Future, suppliers and politicians celebrated the official kickoff to construction on the company’s North Las Vegas manufacturing plant with a Champagne toast Wednesday afternoon. Gov. Brian Sandoval and North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee were among those to address the crowd inside a windowed tent at the site of the future factory surrounded by the vast, mostly empty desert expanses of Apex Industrial Park.

Little new information was revealed at the groundbreaking ceremony, but Faraday hinted at what might be in store for its future, highlighting progress it has made in attracting suppliers, plans for the factory and updates on its timeline to produce a production car within the next couple of years.

Faraday started clearing its land at Apex in late January and closed on its last two parcels of land at the site today, for a total of more than 900 acres. The company expects to begin grading the land, the next step in the construction process, sometime in the second quarter, according to Dag Reckhorn, Faraday’s vice president of manufacturing.

The factory will be a 3.4 million-square-foot facility, with large glass windows, solar panels and smart technology. Ding Lei, a top executive at LeEco, Faraday’s strategic partner, called it “the most advanced auto plant.” It will manufacture Faraday’s first production vehicle.

Alon construction details to be revealed in less than two months

Accordingly, I can now reveal that we are less than two months away from the real ground-start of the new hotel Alon to be built by Crown Resorts’ Australian billionaire James Packer, newly engaged to Caesars Palace headliner Mariah Carey, and Las Vegas business executive Andrew Pascal, who has Elaine Wynn as his aunt and was president of Wynn Las Vegas from 2005 to 2010.

Former SLS President Rob Oseland, another former Wynn employee, has joined the Elan team.

The nearly 35-acre property on the former site of Frontier is across from Steve Wynn’s Wynn and Encore and just steps north from Fashion Show mall.

Commission to kick light rail conversations into high gear

When the board of Southern Nevada’s Regional Transportation Commission adopted a major transit plan last week, it gave the green light for officials to get started on certain planning steps related to light rail, according to Tina Quigley, the commission’s general manager.

Quigley told a group of local businesspeople and public officials Wednesday that the board authorized her agency to proceed with what is known as an alternatives analysis. She described the analysis as a “very large community conversation” that will tackle such issues as where light rail tracks should be aligned on the roadways, where the stops should be located and how the system could be funded.

The alternatives analysis is geared toward seeking some amount of federal funding for the light rail system, according to Quigley. She said the process is likely to start sometime in July and could take about 18 months to complete.

Reports: Mark Davis to pledge Raiders move to Las Vegas if domed stadium is built

By BILL BRADLEY and RICHARD N. VELOTTA
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
The Oakland Raiders will seek relocation to Las Vegas if a domed stadium is built here, according to two reports.

Both Sports Illustrated and the Bleacher Report reported Monday that Raiders owner Mark Davis will pledge Thursday to move the team to Southern Nevada if a 65,000-seat stadium is built along Tropicana Avenue near the Strip.

Davis is scheduled to appear Thursday — the same day as the NFL Draft’s first round — at a Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee meeting at UNLV. A plan to build a $1.3 billion domed stadium will be discussed at that meeting.

That could change with the proposed Mars World, for which renderings and loose plans were revealed by space.com in late March. The indoor, colony-like facility is reportedly in funding stages. Executive VP John Spencer is also chief designer, and he brings his perspective as a space tourism/space-themed attraction guru (he assisted in designing Star Trek: The Experience, a Tomorrowland for Trekkies back when the Westgate was the Las Vegas Hilton). If the project secures the Strip-adjacent acreage and $2 billion needed to become a reality, guests could be simulating Mars walks in diminished gravity and staying in a property hotel by 2021.

Raiders owner willing to spend $500 million on move to Las Vegas

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said today he was serious about moving his team to Las Vegas and offered a half-billion-dollar pledge for a proposed $1.4 billion, 65,000-seat domed football stadium.

Davis told an influential tourism committee gathered at UNLV that the Raiders would put up $500 million toward the stadium if Nevada legislators approve public funding for the project and other NFL owners allow the team to relocate.

Those significant obstacles would remain in the way of the stadium project, even after it’s been thoroughly vetted by the tourism panel.

“We do want to be your partners. We’re not coming in looking for a free handout,” Davis said. “I want to tell you what I told Gov. Sandoval a few weeks ago: Together, we can turn the Silver State into the Silver and Black State.”

Overall, the stadium would be paid for with $750 million in public money and $650 million in private funds, backers told the 11-member committee of leaders from Nevada’s public and private sectors.

Steve Wynn says Las Vegas should get ready for Raiders

By NORM CLARKE
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Billionaire Steve Wynn quietly has been taking on a power-broker role to help bring the NFL to Las Vegas.

Addressing his involvement for the first time during a red carpet event Friday, Wynn revealed he’s met with Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis and two influential NFL owners, Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys and Stan Kroenke, who recently moved his St. Louis Rams to Los Angeles.

Wynn said Las Vegas has to be ready if the opportunity presents itself.

“If the NFL says, ‘If you want to move to Las Vegas, Raiders, you can,’ then we’ve got to spring into action and we’ve got to come up with a program.

“I just thought it would be a great thing for the town, don’t you agree?”

I asked Wynn if he was partnering with Adelson.

“Well,” said Wynn, “Sheldon and I are both very strong supporters of it, and how it plays out is something we’ve got to see.

“We haven’t been down to the nitty gritty of it because, first of all, do the owners believe this is OK?” he added. “Their attitude toward the relationship with sports and gaming has changed. They’re having two games in London, where the entire audience can bet play by play, and the NFL is going to London and the audience is participating in that.

“So there’s been a sea change in the NFL’s attitude, at least based upon the London games,” Wynn continued. “It’s not hypocritical. I think they’re in a state of change. How that plays out with us is interesting.”

Wynn emphasized that “the one thing that Las Vegas should have in its arsenal that’s missing is a great stadium and an NFL team,” he said.

Davis “is dying to do it. He came to see me and Sheldon (Adelson). He made the rounds. He wanted to make sure there was local support.”

“Now financing these puppies is no small thing. How that plays out. … I went to dinner last week with Jerry Jones and Stan Kroenke and got into the conversation how Jerry did Cowboys [AT&T] Stadium.

“It’s a lamination of several different types of layers of financing,” Wynn said, “and we’re going to have to focus on that if there’s local support. Let me put it this way: If there’s a will, there’s a way.

“The question is if you can get 24 of 32 owners to agree,” Wynn said of the league support required to relocate an NFL franchise. “So there’s two strategies here: to get the others to think it’s OK, at least 24 out of 32, and secondly develop a strategy for financing,” he said.

Goodell, NFL might be warming up to gambling

The first real sign of Goodell softening his anti-gambling stance and possibly warming up to Las Vegas was evident last week, when he was grilled again about the Raiders’ potential move to a proposed $1.4 billion stadium on the Strip. This time, his answer changed.

“All of us have evolved a little on gambling,” Goodell said. “To me, where I cross the line is anything that can impact the integrity of the game. If people think it is something that can influence the outcome of a game, we are absolutely opposed to that.”

The first part of his statement indicates an overdue breakthrough. Goodell’s opinion of legal sports betting is outdated, and the league’s relationship with gambling is hypocritical, and maybe he’s finally ready to admit it and open his mind.

The second part of Goodell’s statement hints at an absurd, archaic belief that gambling rats could be running around Las Vegas trying to influence professional players to fix games. In another era, say the 1970s, that paranoia might have been justified.

There is no reason for the NFL to fear and loathe Las Vegas now. The NHL is prepared to put an expansion franchise here, and NBA commissioner Adam Silver has stepped forward as an outspoken proponent of the values of fan involvement in legal, regulated wagering and fantasy sports.

Las Vegas is a world-class city with almost everything but a state-of-the-art stadium. The benefits of a stadium for an NFL franchise and other big events are undeniable. The financing plan needs more scrutiny. But it should get built, and if it does, there’s not much that could stop the Raiders from coming.

Owners should realize Las Vegas will create more appeal and generate more revenue for the NFL than Oakland, and the league wants the second spot in Los Angeles to remain open as leverage for stadium negotiations in other cities. The league needs the Chargers to stay in San Diego, and the league will be better off if the Raiders are in Las Vegas.

Monorail to use interest money to kick-start expansion to Mandalay Bay

“We would use those funds in a very measured way, in a very deliberate way,” Curtis Myles, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Monorail, told the commission April 5. Myles said the expansion had been in the works for three years and the Monorail Co. had done extensive analysis of ridership.

In 2015, Myles told members of the International Monorail Association that extending from the existing MGM Grand terminus to Mandalay Bay would cost an estimated $100 million. He said the project would mean a new station and two new trains.

Reisman said the company is focused on a Mandalay extension because it’s confident ridership will support the move. The change would mean going from connecting passengers to 26,000 hotel rooms to 35,000, she said.

As to an extension to McCarran International Airport, which is the question everyone has whenever the monorail comes up, Reisman said it hadn’t been ruled out but wasn’t an immediate focus.

Resorts World construction to ramp up this year, finish in 2019

Appearing before the Nevada Gaming Control Board almost exactly a year after the project held its ceremonial groundbreaking, Resorts World General Counsel Gerald Gardner said construction would get underway in earnest in the fourth quarter, with site activity starting to ramp up this summer.

Gardner said construction of the Chinese-themed resort should be finished in early 2019. Project officials had previously said it would open in 2018.

In an interview after his remarks to the board, Gardner, a former chief of staff to Gov. Brian Sandoval, attributed the delay to ongoing work on a “complex design.” He said struggles in the Chinese economy and with Malaysian currency had also affected the timeline.

But officials with Malaysia-based Genting Group, the project’s developer, said today the company was in a strong financial position.

Steve Wynn plans ‘fantasy island’ in Crystal Lagoons beachfront paradise

Hotel tycoon Steve Wynn plans a centerpiece “fantasy island” in the new Crystal Lagoons beachfront paradise he is building from his Wynn and Encore golf club. Steve told me that he’d been up nights unable to sleep trying to deal with the “problem of scale” at the 38-acre lagoon.

Steve thinks he’s now solved it with another entertainment attraction within the overall 130-acre entertainment attraction, hotel, casino, nightlife and restaurant zone behind Wynn and Encore.

Steve met Monday night in Los Angeles with his Disney-centric team of designers led by Miami-based Crystal Lagoons and WET Design, the California company that created Steve’s Bellagio Fountains and also the world’s largest performing fountain in Dubai.

Steve told me his fantasy island would be the centerpiece of the attraction with daytime and nighttime entertainment elements:

“Robin, you and I will go waterskiing or parasailing. The lagoon will be about the size of almost 100 Olympic-sized swimming pools or 30 football fields,” laughed Steve.

“I want the crystal-clear waters and white sand beaches to remind of the South of France. There will be windsurfing, sailing, swimming and paddle boarding.

“The issue of scale, though, was making me lose sleep until I came up with the fantasy island concept. We’ll be able to stage shows out there. Guests will be able to get married there.

“We can have caves where entertainers pop in and out of with little shows. We’ll have a tunnel to use underwater to let staff and supplies get there and back easily, but guests can paddle out to it.

Steve Wynn now says planned lake will include 10-story island
First-quarter revenue drops at Wynn Resorts

The company has big plans for its business in Las Vegas. CEO Steve Wynn recently revealed that he wants to develop a huge lake attraction, along with an additional hotel tower, meeting space and more, on land that currently houses the golf course behind his Strip resorts.

Wynn today shed more light on that proposal, tentatively titled Wynn Paradise Park, on a conference call with analysts.

Reiterating that the project still needed approval from his company’s board of directors, Wynn said the vision had changed a bit since he first unveiled the plans in early April. He elaborated on some of the details of what he envisioned.

The casino mogul said the lake had been extended some 600 feet and that in the middle of it would be “a mountain, an island” eight to ten stories tall featuring “irregular topography” and twin peaks connected by a rope bridge.

He also spoke of “cabanas and other special effects platforms” built into the side, a “beach bar with white sand,” ferries in the lake and zip lines.

Wynn said that at its current phase, the creative process for a project like Paradise Park was “very dynamic” and changing “on a weekly basis.” He said cost per foot would be resolved as ideas were fleshed out, but he indicated that his company had grand ambitions for the development.

“We’re not just building a body of water with a promenade around the edge — the American public has seen that before,” Wynn said. “When we do something here, we do something that hasn’t been seen before.”
