- Las Vegas US-NV
Steve Wynn has been building casinos for nearly half a century. The CEO and chairman of the board of Wynn Resorts, Steve Wynn got his start in Las Vegas and has since built resorts in other cities in the United States as well. Wynn Resorts presently operates in Las Vegas and Macau, China. Under Stephen A. Wynn’s direction, the company has been expanding its U.S. portfolio. One potential new site lies in Philadelphia, where the company has proposed a new resort on the banks of the Delaware River. To gauge the community’s receptiveness to its proposal and gather feedback, Wynn Resorts recently held a picnic at Philadelphia’s Campbell Square Park. The event, free to the public, included food trucks and music from The Exceptions and the Polish American String Band. Over 350 Philadelphians attended the event. Wynn Resorts representatives have been meeting with members of the community throughout the proposal process in order to make sure their concerns are met. In response to a strong desire from community members for access to the river, the company has incorporated into its plans a four-and-a-half-acre river walk that would remain open to the public all year long.
