Wynn Resorts Development Japan president Chris Gordon says that his company is 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 at a press conference held for the Japanese media. It would top those found in places like Macau, Singapore and Las Vegas.

Gordon also estimated that Wynn’s initial investment would be in the $8bn to $9bn range and that the annual operating expenses would come in between $940m and $1.4bn. 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.
