LAS VEGAS (AP) - The famous marquee of the New Frontier hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip has been removed at the request of Steve Wynn, who is preparing to open a new resort across the street.
A construction manager of ELAD Las Vegas, which is developing the site, says the sign was taken down by a Wynn Resorts Ltd. team, which was given permission to come on the site.
A spokeswoman for Wynn Resorts says Wynn requested the sign be
removed as it prepares to open Encore, a new casino-hotel attached
to the Wynn.
The site of the New Frontier is owned by ELAD Property Group, which has plans to build a hotel modeled after the Plaza hotel in New York. No ground has broken yet and the hotel is scheduled to open in 2012.
