Resorts World Las Vegas will change its design as part of a settlement with Wynn Resorts over the similarities of their buildings.

KSNV-TV reports Wynn Resorts and Genting Group, which is developing Resorts World, said in a joint statement that Resorts World would have an updated design "that will clearly differentiate the two properties."

Wynn Resorts filed a lawsuit in federal court in December alleging the design of Resorts World was too similar to its own designs. The suit specifically cited the "three-dimensional building with concave facade, and curved, bronze glass, coupled with horizontal banding above and between the lines of glass panes."

Wynn Resorts spokesman Michael Weaver said in a statement Monday that "the new design changes offered by Genting will resolve the concerns we expressed about the similarity of the design."
