Unnamed resort on the same plot where is currently being built Lucky Dragon.



2/10/08: First rendering.

The proposed 72-Story mixed-use development includes a 1,300-room hotel; a 67,800 sq. ft. casino; 254,240 sq. ft. of commercial use and 40 residential condos.

The stunning new tower looks completely different than the original Allure Tower. It has a 60's retro, mid-century-modern design.

The Place at Mandalay Bay .



August 4, 2006.

The Clark County Planning Commission has considered MGM Mirage’s plans for The Place at Mandalay Bay Casino, a proposed 520-foot tower with 1,344 units that would rise on the northwest corner of the Strip and Mandalay Bay Road, only feet from Luxor’s pyramid.

Although it would be located on Luxor’s property, architectural renderings submitted to the county for The Place show its exterior design retains the metallic gold-on-white motif of nearby Mandalay Bay and The Hotel at Mandalay Bay.

Atlantis Hotel and Casino by Antoine Predock.



Las Vegas, Nevada, 1994.

The Atlantis Hotel addresses all the requirements of a themed mega-hotel development, yet uses the notion of 'themeing' as a point of departure to explore a multi-faced site of imagination.

The project brief called for a 3,500-room hotel and 130,000-foot-square casino. Support spaces included a 1,200-seat showroom, lounges, six restaurants, 30,000 square feet of retail space, 40,000 square feet of conference center and structured parking for 4,000 cars. Diagrammatically, Atlantis does the exact opposite of the typical casino model. Where the standard casino is windowless so as to control a patron's concept of time, Atlantis was to be filled with light. Where the typical casino theme stops at the gaming floor to avoid distraction from the task at hand, Atlantis was to be a thorough, integrated experience - a 'systematic' theme.

The reference to Plato's Atlantis is evident in the fragments of a subterranean culture which configure the scheme. Light emanates from a realm below, from which the culture erupts. The hotel ascends from a fractured tectonic plateau- inspired by the patterns of shattered glass- metamorphosing from storie and concrete into crystal. Water carves its way through the plateau at the base of the hotel. The water course leads to a ramp, from there one can climb the building's nautilus spiral. A 60-foot-deep vortex of salt water drills into the earth: divers can explore hidden grottoes and a reef. The light that shimmers from the depths of the vortex implies a connection to a power source below. It is perhaps this shimmering pure light which bathes the gaming floor in an otherworldly glow that lifts the dark pastime of gambling to a new plateau, suitable for family consumption.

Before The Mirage, Wynn dreamed of building Victoria Bay.



By 1981, Wynn had transformed the Golden Nugget from "just another casino" into the crown jewel of downtown gaming. In an interview with NBC News, he held forth on what it would take to revolutionize the Strip.

"The ideal layout in a casino would be one that because of the aisle space and location of all the different elements between bars and restaurants and games, would cause a typical person to want to walk over every inch," lectured Wynn. "That would be the perfect layout. If there was something in every nook and cranny of the building that made the average person go to it, then you would have solved the problem perfectly."


Wynn envisioned what would become the largest hotel in the world and planned to call it Victoria Bay. It would be housed in four complimentary 30-story towers – a total sensory experience.

Initially, the Victoria Bay would have gone where the Excalibur is today, on the southwest corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd. South.

"The size and strategic location of this parcel adjacent to the Los Angeles Freeway and near McCarran International Airport make it ideally suited for a resort hotel complex, which would equal or surpass any existing facility," noted real estate expert Richard Lee at the time.


By November, Wynn had abandoned that location and set his eyes on the North end of the Strip.

"It will cost Wynn $300 million," reported News 3's Gwen Castaldi of the new location. "Possibly more to put his resort fronting both the Strip and Paradise between the Silverbird and Sahara hotels. Visually outside and in, he wants flavor."

"It is gonna have panache," said an enthusiastic Wynn. "It's gonna have style. It's going to be audacious."

Except it never quite happened. With the economy still on a slow recovery from a deep recession, Wynn pulled the plug on Victoria Bay toward the end of 1981.
