At a press conference held for the Japanese media on the 5th, Wynn Resorts Development Japan President Chris Gordon said that his company was proposing to build the world’s largest IR in a city such as Tokyo, Yokohama, or Osaka.
“The current projections are that it would be the largest Integrated Resort in the world,” Gordon said, topping those found in places like Macau, Singapore, and Las Vegas.
Gordon also estimated that Wynn’s initial investment would be in the US$8 billion to US$9 billion range, and that the annual operating expenses, especially for personnel costs, would come in between US$940 million and US$1.4 billion. The IR would employ between 11,000 and 16,700 people.
Finally, Gordon made it clear that Wynn intends to tie up with at least one major Japanese company in order to give the bid additional credibility. (AGB Nippon)
