Las Vegas' Le Reve on target for Sept. 2004 debut

LAS VEGAS -- Looks like Steve Wynn's newest enterprise on The Strip still is on target for its September 2004 opening.

Financing for the planned Le Reve megaresort was set to be completed last month, with construction scheduled for April.

The water-themed hotel and casino, to be built on the site of the Desert Inn, will cost $1.63 billion, about the same amount Wynn spent to build the Bellagio.

Plans call for the property to include 2,455 rooms, a 42-story hotel tower and a man-made lake.
