Quote:

The new hotel will be built on the site of the former Frontier hotel, across Las Vegas Boulevard from Wynn’s two existing properties. It will feature approximately 2,500 hotel rooms and be linked to the Wynn and Encore hotels by an “air-conditioned umbilical hallway,” Wynn said on a conference call Monday.

Wynn Resorts Ltd. acquired the 38-acre site for $336 million in December. The company is also building a hotel, convention center and lake resort, Paradise Park, behind its current properties.



I wonder if the hallway will be connected to the public... to bring people from the strip to the properties rather than just between them.

Probably not,
The various properties want entry ways to function and transit corridors to function as separate areas.
Security concerns can be dealt with at entryways and this allows the umbilical area to function without distractions and delays

Hopefully the casino floor will be less garish than Encore: the red-colored theme used there has never worked for me.

It would be cool if they put in gondolas like the asian properties. A long covered bridge won’t work for many seniors.

ahh.. thought Resort World's Echelon project was the combined Frontier/Stardust property.

so Wynn owns what used to be New Frontier, and next door Resort World has what used to be Stardust.

People movers, like they use at some airports (DEN, MEM) would be nice!

A private walkway built over a public road?
Seems unlikely.

Not in Vegas, especially, when your last name is Wynn.

An example is already in place between the Main Street Station and the California hotels downtown.
