It remains to be seen if Wynn Plaza will keep its current name when it debuts later this year, but behind-the-scenes work continues to add a full roster of luxury retail brands to the 72,851-square-foot retail center that has extended the resort right to the Strip.
Its two dining anchors are being imported from the East and West Coasts and despite zero publicity, new paperwork filed earlier this month confirms both projects are still on track.
Cipriani Las Vegas will create a 6,316-square-foot, two-level restaurant, with early permits pointing to an estimated construction budget of $2 million. The concept is expected to create a sophisticated bar and perhaps, import a version of its Italian menu found in New York.
More details are available for Urth Caffé’s first non-California expansion, featuring “organic, heirloom coffee,” a menu of light fare for breakfast and lunch, plus a full range of desserts and baked goods.
Recently hiring for managerial positions, the Los Angeles-based cafe has enlisted California Pottery & Tile Works to make its ceramic fountains and locals Burke Construction Group recently installed a skylight within the shell structure.
Urth will fill 5,493 square feet with enough room for a maximum occupancy of 168 inside.
No updated timetable for the Wynn Plaza unveiling has been announced, but an official, “early summer 2018 grand opening,” now appears optimistic.
Also yet to be revealed, the high-end retailers filling the remaining empty spaces. Current paperwork points to fashion house Balmain of Paris, upscale men’s and women’s designer James Perse Los Angeles, Italian luxury designer Brunello Cucinelli, and Italian shoes from Aquazzura becoming part of the resort’s ritzy shopping scene.
