FACTBOX: Las Vegas Strip under construction
(Reuters) - Developers are expected to add about 23,000 luxury hotel rooms to the Las Vegas Strip between now and 2010.
That number has fallen by about half from a year ago as the weak economy and credit constraints led several developers to reconsider their plans.
Following is a summary of casino-hotel projects currently under construction:
-- Encore at Wynn Las Vegas: 2,034 all-suite hotel tower, 72,000-square-foot casino, convention and meeting space, restaurants, nightclub, swimming pools, spa and salon, and retail outlets.
Located just north of, and adjacent to, Wynn Las Vegas.
Due to open in December.
Owner: Wynn Resorts Ltd
-- Caesars Palace: new 665-room hotel tower, including 75 luxury suites, additional meeting space, a remodeled and expanded pool area and other improvements.
The expansion is slated to open in mid-2009. Continued...
