Wynn Philadelphia Rendering

The plans for the proposed Wynn Philadelphia project have been made part of the public record, courtesy of the City of Philadelphia. You can download them here.

There is some fascinating stuff enclosed, including site plans for the first and second levels and lots of details.

Wynn Philadelphia Podium

A large chunk of the green stuff is covered parking... it surrounds the building but the cars are hidden from view under a rooftop canopy. A simple effective solution to the "parking lots are ugly" dilemma. Perhaps The Steve will lay that roof with some solar panels to offset the energy usage. Another nice touch is the circular park on the right, such a great, simple design, a perfect place to wander and get lost in the topiary. Just below the park is an out door auditorium, with concerts on the river, set against the Philadelphia skyline. A second floor nightclub - quite removed from the casino floor - also faces the riverfront and skyline.

Wynn Philadelphia Podium

The bisection of the property is typically Wynn.... from the driveway, through the lobby, through the "atrium" through the casino, through the center bar all the way back to the performance lounge... the entire site plan is set on that axis. It looks like two top tier dining options facing the gardens and the front driveway, quick bites next with a food court, coffee shop and a deli, then a sports lounge, performance lounge and possibly two more restaurants at the far end of the casino. The casino features clear arterials and is divided into a lucky eight chunks. Baccarat, high limit and poker all have their own dedicated spaces. The second floor of the the podium features convention services, spa and a theatre ball room.

Another great piece of work by Wynn's architect DeRuyter Butler. Nice balance, nice flow and great lines.
