History of Wynn Las Vegas
Steve Wynn first revealed plans of a 45-story, 2,455-room, and 514-foot resort and four-acre lake in August 2001. The project did not have a formal name and would be built on the site of the Desert Inn. The project’s name was revealed on October 19, 2001, as “Le Rêve”, meaning “the dream” in French.
To make way for the resort, the Desert Inn’s main tower was imploded on October 23, 2001. The rest of the Desert Inn was imploded on November 17, 2004. The project included the redesigning of the historic Desert Inn golf course, which was renamed the Wynn Golf Club. The remainder of the property was acquired by purchasing private residences that were generally located along Paradise Avenue.
In June 2002, Steve Wynn filed for an IPO to help fund the project. Wynn hired Marnell Corrao Associates to design and build the resort. The resort was built at a cost of $2.7 billion, which made it the largest privately funded construction project in the nation. The name of the resort was changed from “Le Rêve” to “Wynn Las Vegas” on June 23, 2003.
Wynn Las Vegas opened on April 28, 2005, the same day as Steve Wynn’s wife, Elaine’s birthday, the 55th anniversary of the original Desert Inn opening, and five years from the day Wynn purchased the Desert Inn site. – Wikipedia
