Update: As expected, the rendering police came after us and we have removed them per their request:

From: Michel Hong Architects - admin@mhongarchitects.com

We are writing to inform you that the Wynn Macau renderings in the above link were illegally watermarked. The renderings are the properties of Michael Hong Architects. In addition, they were obtained and posted without the permission of Wynn Design Development and Michael Hong Architects. Please remove them from your website or legal action will be perused by both entities.

One of the architects who has worked on many of the Mirage Resorts/Wynn Resorts projects has posted an astounding number of presumably top secret renderings to their public website, including shots of Encore at Wynn Macau, Encore Las Vegas and proposed Wynn resorts for Singapore and Monaco.

Knowing Wynn Resorts' penchant for shrouding future, past and withdrawn projects in secrecy... this is a serious jackpot. Wow.

There is a great chance that these won't be available for long, so take a looksi while you can.

Big thanks to JD for the tip.

Comments & Discussion:

Excellent! We can also confirm that there'll be an SW Steakhouse as well in the second rendering on the site.

I would not place the likelihood of an SW or such in the Encore. Steak is not that popular. The only two in the SAR really are Copa (sands) and a Morton's (Veneitan). Both suffer from table turn over IMHO (either not enough fat checks or quick dinners). Chinese are known for long meals, and a bit timid at large western meals. (The Crown/Altria offers two steak houses, but by all accounts they are more generic white table cloth joints, not steakhouses. They also suffer the same fate as the other two).

Point of trivia the COD has NO western restaurants, save the aforementioned undistinguished place at the top of the Crown and some pitiful food court type options.

Getting back to Encore, remember that it is a much, much smaller footprint then the one in Vegas, and is closer to Wynn dining options. Finally, the Encore Macau is supposed to be all VIP's and junkets. Food is not on their list of priorities usually.
