Wynn Encore Macau Construction Photos, November 2008
Ask and ye shall receive! I'm super excited to post a very recent round of Encore Suites at Wynn Macau construction photos, sent in by extremely generous photographer friend AceMacau. Thank you Ace for sharing these supremely killer photos!
I love the parenthetical way of treating the logo... it's techie but classic at the same time. Subtle... and exciting.
Far away shot, taken from the west side of the lagoon adjacent to the Nam Van Lake. Left is the Wynn Macau tower (obviously), Encore to the right and the Royal Arc behind it. The low lying buildings to the foreground is VIP entrance/lobby/snack bar area. MGM Grand Macau is to the right of this (not pictured). Also, the buildings to the right of Encore is *generally* where the MelcoPBL Trinity project will be, if it even gets built.
This view is from the service road between Wynn & MGM, where the Red Bus drops off. The building to the left is Galaxy StarWorld. Royal Arc looks like its in the 'finishing touches' stage.
Taken from the MGM side of the service road between Wynn & MGM. The angle makes these two buildings look the same size, Royal Arc (or is it Arch?) is enormous, and is what guests staying on the other side of the Encore tower will be looking at from their rooms. Loverly view eh? (Note to self: when booking Encore Macau, request a pool facing room)
Detail view. The pool is to the left.
It looks like the yellow netted scaffolding is for construction of the tower base buildings (about five floors of dining, spa, retail and other goodies) and not just to protect from falling debris. Wynn was the first company to require workers to use metal scaffolding in construction and not tied together bamboo. Due to this and other construction techniques not used in Macau, they have been able to build this thing at light speed. This whole area was a pile of mud when I was there 14 months ago.
You'll also notice the tower rendering seen in the previous post, displayed prominently on the wall outside, so we can confirm that this is that or that is this. Your choice.
Thanks again to AceMacau for the super excellent photo hookup!
