On 1 May 2012, Wynn Macau received approval from the Macau government for its Cotai land concession, paving the way for Wynn Macau to break ground on the 51-acre site.[9]

Wynn Macau Limited acquired a group of Jiaqing period (1796-1820) porcelain vases at a Christie's London auction on July 7, 2011. The vases were purchased for £8 million ($12.8 million). "We are delighted to return works of this extraordinary quality to the city of Macau and the People’s Republic of China," Roger Thomas, executive vice president of Design for Wynn Design and Development, said after the sale.[10]

The Qing dynasty vases were on display at Wynn Palace and a sixteenth-century Louis XIV Beauvais Chinoiserie tapestry of 'The Emperor on a Journey,' is on display at Wynn Macau. Other art at Wynn Macau includes a Louis Rigal drawing, Macanese silk embroidery, a Louis XIV silk tapestry, two cloisonné camels, and Ming Dynasty statuary.[11]
