UPDATE: Elan Resort and Casino Is The Name of The Pascal Packer Project

In April 2014, Pascal Ventures - Andrew Pascal's corporate nom de plume - filed a trademark protection application for the name ÉLAN RESORT & CASINO.

The application, which has last been updated on August 18th, 2014, ten days after Pascal and billionaire partner James Packer announced their partnership, states that the mark will be used for casinos and resort hotel services as well as noting that "the English translation of ÉLAN in the mark is ENTHUSIASM."

The Élan Las Vegas corporate entity is called Élan Las Vegas Holdings LLC. Elan Las Vegas Holdings LLC is a Nevada corporation that formed on September 11, 2014, SIX WEEKS after the Pascal/Packer announcement. Recently, Elan Las Vegas Holdings rented a 17,500 sqft office building at 10150 Covington Cross Drive in Summerlin.

Update: See next paragraph.

The obvious domain choice elanlasvegas.com is owned by a Los Angeles-based company "MonteCristo International" and was purchased on December 19th 2012. A second domain option elanlv.com was registered on February 23, 2013, ownership is hidden by a domain privacy service. I'm guessing MonteCristo International will be getting a check soon, if they haven't already.

The domain ElanResort.com is registered by Andrew Pascal & Pascal Ventures, the record was created in March 5th, 2014. That is three pieces of evidence that the Élan Resort is the name.

Regarding the name, Élan is just about as close as you can come to calling the place "Elaine".... as in Elaine (Pascal) Wynn, Andrew Pascal's aunt and The Steve's ex-wife. Every day, he's going to look out across the street and see "ÉLA(I)N(E)."

If the wit therein is any inkling as to what we've got in store at Élan Las Vegas... this property can't arrive fast enough.


Comments & Discussion:

But will they have Vibe Dining?

I hear the word Élan and I think of a local winery and resort just northeast of Atlanta called Chateau Élan (Named after the pharmaceutical company the developer of the resort founded, Élan.).

I'll probably keep calling it Packscal.

Which means if it turns out to run into problems or become another steel skeleton I can call it Packscalibur.

^good one.
RateVegas says it reminds him of Flan.

He can probably get a discount on letters when DELANO folds next year.

im more excited about Elan than i am for resorts world.

Best part about this possible name?

It's an actual word, not an initial (The D) or a series of letters (SLS). Though that ÉLA(I)N(E) dig is pretty useful, too, if the Élan name ends up happening.

Can't wait to see some renderings and more detailed information for the project!

elan is a fancy word for screw you steve

These are the Days of Elaine


Thus should have been a link in that last post.
