The parking garage you see behind the construction, part of which is only 4 years old, will be demolished.

Nothing exciting about the tower itself. The application agendas Wynn submitted said it will have the same color and stripe theme of the first Wynn tower, but the tower will curve in the other direction, and be a little bit higher and thicker, to accomodate more larger suite type rooms then the first tower.

oh and that parking garage in the above photos will be removed.

Why is the renders so hard to find... Is is supposed to be that top-secret in terms of exterior design? From what I red here its just a revamped design of an earlier hotel.

Not sure why Wynn is so paranoid to release renderings. For this one it's pretty much assumed that it will be very similar to the first tower right next to it, just situated perpendicular to it and curving in the opposite direction. Now there is speculation that the end of the tower closest to the strip will be angled and slightly overhanging.

Maybe Wynn thinks his designs are trade secrets and doesn't want any competitors jumping the gun on him. Sort of like how the Burj Dubai is keeping secret the final height of their tower, for what ever reason.

Here's an independent render from www.vegastodayandtomorrow.com


And here is a model of the Wynn Macau showing the second tower that hasn't been built yet. You can see that it's similar to the first. Wynn Macau is just a short version of Wynn Las Vegas, same color and everything. So we assume the second Vegas tower, Encore, will be similar to the first Wynn tower.

I figured that one would be able to find renderings of the now-open Wynn Las Vegas after it was open. Nope, I've been to every related architecture and engineering site and nothing...bupkis.

It would be fun to see the early concept renderings and e-models.

You could argue that Cascada was the original concept. It was not a Wynn vision and was planned for the area across the strip from Sahara.

Not sure if this structure will be convention area or another parking garage? Probably parking, the roof height looks too low for convention space.

Cool pic, looks like saturns rings. Saving it for future wallpaper

P.S. Where did you get it? Did you take it yourself?
